Police in Elmira, New York have made an arrest in the shooting death of gay rights supporter Clinton “Billy” Lewis, WBNG channel 12 reported.

Twenty-year-old Louis M. Duffy of Horseheads, a town that borders Elmira, was arrested on Sunday in connection with Lewis' early Sunday death.

Police responding to a shooting report found Lewis' remains in his home, which is located across the street from the gay bar and club Chill, which he owned and operated.

Lewis, who had helped organize local gay pride events in the past, was pronounced dead at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center a short time later.

Duffy, who has been charged with Second Degree Murder, has been arraigned and is being held without bail.

Investigators divulged few details about the murder, but said there was no evidence of a break-in and that the two men were acquaintances. One paper, the Elmira Star-Gazette, reported that Lewis did not live alone.

Shocked friends mourned Lewis' death outside Chill on Sunday.

“He was a dear friend,” said Alexis Franchi of Elmira. “He helped me out, and helped my little brother out. He was a good guy. He opened his door to anyone who needed help.”
