Man Arrested in Robbery, Shooting of Swedish Student in Wynwood: Police

Police said they've arrested one of the the men who ambushed and shot a Swedish student during a robbery in Wynwood earlier this month.

Devin Lewis, 25, was arrested by Miami Police Thursday in the June 7 shooting of 28-year-old Frank Hammar, officials said.

Lewis was being booked into jail late Thursday on charges of attempted murder and armed robbery, police said. It was unknown if he's hired an attorney.

Hammar, a student at Miami Ad School, had just finished dinner with his parents at the Wynwood Diner and had sent them off with an Uber driver when two men approached him, one brandishing a weapon. Hammer gave up his phone but kept his wallet.

"I told them that you guys are really screwing me over if you take this," Hammar told NBC 6 from his hospital bed earlier this month. "The other guy said something like 'blast him or pop him' and the guy with the gun fires two bullets."

Hammer was struck twice in his abdomen and crawled for help. Hammar spent days at Jackson Memorial Hospital before he was released last week.

Police said they're still looking for the second suspect.
