Lejeune policeman charged in death of son

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — A Camp Lejeune civilian law enforcement officer has been charged in the November 2009 accidental shooting death of his young son.

Robert John Lewis, 27, of Jacksonville, N.C., was charged Wednesday morning with involuntary manslaughter, possession of a weapon of mass destruction, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and failing to secure a firearm from a minor, according to an Onslow County Sheriff’s Office release.

The charges come nearly two months after Lewis’s 3-year-old son, Tyler Lewis, shot himself in the forehead Nov. 16 with a .40-caliber pistol he found on a table in the family’s home, according to authorities. He died shortly after the gun fired.

Lewis was working on the base when the shooting occurred. His wife was at home with their son at the time.

He has been placed in Onslow County Jail on $55,000 bond.
