Christopher Bieker May

Police Officer Christopher May was shot and killed after he responded to a shooting in a residential neighborhood on River Valley Road.

Although responding officers had initially thought it was a drive-by shooting, a woman had been shot while sitting in her yard by a mentally ill next-door neighbor with a high-powered rifle.

As Officer May approached in an attempt to interview those at the neighbor's home at 6 p.m., the suspect shot him in the face at close range from an ambush position in the garage. The suspect was shot and killed several hours later during a SWAT team raid at the residence.

Officer May had served with the Fulton County Police Department for three years. He was survived by his parents, brother, and grandparents.

Happy Birthd
ay, Chris. Loved our visit, as always.Your stone is so unique and beautiful, just like you. This visit,was extra emotional for me. I guess the day just reminded me so much, of our days roaming and exploring new territories. We had wonderful times together. I look at you college picture, and can't believe how old we are!! Or better said, how much time has past. I hope you enjoyed the flowers and our special tunes. Someday, I may not cry, but ,don't bet on it. Love you always, and all we shared. See you again in Spring. Forever in my heart, thoughts and prayers. S.
