Off-duty officer Ricky Haynes shot and killed Annette Haynes, an ex-girlfriend who allegedly kicked in his door and cut his arm. Clay's family said she suffered from mental illness and had had a troubled relationship with Haynes, but doubted she would have kicked her way inside. Clay's sister said Clay had taken a bus the day before to Haynes' home to pick up her disability check. Police said Clay was seen around the building as early as 2 a.m. Just after 10 a.m., Clay went to Haynes' 17th-floor apartment, police said.
