Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the FBI’s New York office. “It’s hard to fathom how the suspect in this case weighed exposing his illegal drug trade, and his illegal weapons because he wanted to prove how tough he is to his rivals.”Authorities alleged that the 36-year-old Calverton man shot the victim while Birt and several friends were posing for a photo at the Illusions Gentlemen’s Club in Deer Park when they were approached by an associate of Lewis, who was also a member of the Bloods. The associate attempted to display a Bloods gang hand signal in the photo, a dispute ensued and Lewis pulled out a handgun and fatally shot Birt, according to investigators.The FBI Long Island Gang Task Force arrested Lewis Monday. The probe of the murder found that the suspect allegedly distributed large quantities of cocaine base and heroin in Suffolk County between January 2016 and March 2018, prosecutors said.His arrest came on the same day that federal authorities announced the roundup of a dozen members of the Hempstead-based Mac Baller Brims set of the Bloods on charged of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine and heroin.Lewis faces up to life in prison, if convicted before Judge Joanna Seybert.last_img read more
