The report stated, Mays was talking to his mother when someone ran up and began shooting at the 25-year-old. His mother Senekua Mays said she was not able to see the person who rained bullets at her son.“I couldn’t see his face at all the fire from the gun it was just too…” his mother said. “I’m going to be strong for him. That’s why. He don’t want me to cry, he don’t want me to mourn — and he don’t want to be on a t-shirt.”
