Patrolman Ray succumbed to gunshot wounds received one month earlier while responding to a burglary call.

A store owner had arrived to work and discovered the burglary. The suspect, however, was still inside and robbed the man after he called police. Patrolman Ray was entering the store as the suspect attempted to flee and was shot twice by the suspect.
