‘One of the positive ones:’ Elwin ‘Ras Bobo’ Lewis mourned as police search for killer continues

Posted: Wednesday, March 27, 2024. 1:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Reformed gang member Elwin “Ras Bobo” Lewis, by all accounts, was considered an elder and visionary of the reform movement led by the Leadership Intervention Unit (LIU) before his killing last Friday.

And while Police Commissioner Chester Williams paid his respects on Tuesday, he noted that Lewis’ undoing was perhaps his belief that his ‘street cred’ would help him navigate the internecine rivalry within the City’s most recognized gang, George Street: “We know that he did [have] issues with a particular group. And again, it’s a whole George Street faction, as you would know that there’s a division in the George Street faction and there was a group that was against him. But Bobo [has] always maintained his cool. And despite knowing that division and that and that animosity was there, he still felt comfortable moving in the area where the other factions were, hoping that the fact that he has been an elder, he would be respected. But I guess what he had hoped for did not work out well for him.”

Nonetheless, Williams stated, “I have sat in many interventions with Bobo and he has always been one of the positive ones. I’m trying to see how best he can help to quell the issues in the George Street area. Certainly, yes, his presence working with the LIU is going to be missed.

As for the investigation, police are reviewing video footage from the area of the killing on Antelope Street near Gwen Lizarraga High School, preparing their case for the Director of Public Prosecutions. Lewis was returning from cashing cheques on behalf of the Unit when he met his killer.
