Man Shot by Police in Southern Illinois Is Charged
WSIL-TV reports that Union County prosecutors charged 40-year-old Matthew Lewis with attempted home invasion, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and reckless conduct in connection with the May 30 confrontation in Jonesboro. Authorities say police responding to a reported home break-in found Lewis, who was threatening them with a gun before officers shot and wounded him. Lewis later was treated at a hospital and is now jailed in Jackson County.
Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney. Lewis does not have a listed home telephone number.
