Wake County deputies had a warrant for Andrew Lawrence Lewis on Tuesday night. Lewis is wanted for the murder of Alton Michael Augustine last Friday night.

Lewis led police on a car chase on Old Stage Road between Garner and Fuquay-Varina.

Lewis later wrecked his vehicle into the side of a house and fled on foot. Law enforcement officials thought he may have traveled into a house in the neighborhood, but they could not find him.
