NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has asked for help locating a man wanted for questioning in a murder in east Nashville last weekend.

East Precinct detectives believe 20-year-old Andre Dewayne Lewis has important information in connection with the death of Ronald Sanders. The 26-year-old was shot and killed in the 500 block of Sylvan Street in the James Cayce public housing development last Saturday.

Efforts to locate Lewis, who is last known to have lived on S. 8th Court, have been unsuccessful.

Police have already arrested 27-year-old Christian Brown on a murder charge in the case. Witnesses told police that Brown and a second suspect approached Sanders and demanded money. Sanders refused and was shot during a heated argument.

Brown was held at the Metro Jail.

Anyone seeing Andre Lewis or knowing his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (615)74-CRIME. Tips can also be sent to Crime Stoppers by texting the word "CASH" along with the message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com.
