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.

Patrolman Ray was survived by his daughter and two sons.

Was thinking about Tommy recently & remembered that he used to ride to work with me when we both worked at GE. He left GE & went to the Louisville Police department.. Lost track of him after that & then heard about his death. He was a great person & Was heartbroken when he died. I lived off Cane Run Rd & If I remember right, So did he.
