It was at that time officers believe Mays was shot and killed by the early morning assassin.

Woodruff further said, "They (the family of Mays) want justice, and as the police department, that's what we want to provide for the family, and not just the family, but to the community. I mean this guy needs to be taken care of, and taken off the streets and put in jail."
