Law enforcement sources say the Los Angeles police found 28-year-old Lewis’ body in a driveway of a home and the home’s owner, an 81-year-old woman, was found dead inside, the victim of a homicide.
Neighbors say they heard the woman screaming, then saw a man outside her home attack two people with a piece of wood, before climbing onto the roof. The man has been identified as Lewis and it is as of yet unclear if he jumped or fell off the roof to his death. Lewis may have been renting a room from the woman and is suspected of killing her.
In addition to “Sons of Anarchy,” Lewis also had recurring roles on “Boston Public,” “American Dreams,” “Quintuplets” and “The O.C.” He also is an ex-boyfriend of singer Katy Perry’s. The two dated in 2006.

UPDATE: New details have emerged and “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter has responded to Lewis’ death.
