DALLAS -

Former Hunt County Constable Anthony Dewayne Lewis went from a life of chasing criminals to fighting for his life at Parkland Hospital in Dallas... and if he survives his injuries from a shootout with Hunt County law enforcement Saturday night, he will face a murder charge.

The chase started in Garland shortly after 8pm Saturday, police chased Lewis onto eastbound Interstate 30 through Rockwall and even spiked the tires on his car.  But, Lewis still didn't stop.

Just west of Greenville, Lewis tried to make a U-turn and drive back towards Dallas.

That's when police say Lewis got out of the car, pointed a gun at officers and opened fire.

Lewis was critically wounded in the gun battle and no officers were hurt.

If Lewis survives his injuries, he could face a Capital Murder charge.  Right now he's charged with murder and attempted murder.

His bond is set at $1.5 million.
