When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man’s body. The man was identified as 41-year-old Gary S. Sallee Jr.

According to a police report, a surveillance video caught on camera the man who was shot in an altercation with a 20-year-old Cedell Harraway. It was during the altercation Harraway appeared to be hit with the shooting victim’s cane and it was at that time Harraway pulled out a handgun and shot several times at the other man. Harraway then ran from the scene.

It was later on Tuesday night the police received a report that a woman’s foster son was “jumped” and had a cut on his face. The subject of this report was Harraway. The police report states Harraway was “evasive” with officers about the assault.
