The family of Caleb Slay is urging people be patient and not judge Slay until more facts come to light in his case.

Authorities say Slay, 25, was shot to death by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent Monday afternoon in the 1800 block of South Maryland Avenue in Springfield.

The DEA sent a news release Tuesday saying they were doing surveillance on someone else when Slay approached them, and a confrontation ensued. An agent shot Slay during the confrontation, and the DEA says a firearm was recovered from the scene.

A spokesperson for the Slay family said they know more information about the case that has not yet been released, and they cautioned against labeling Slay as a criminal.

“Caleb had a good heart and he wouldn’t hurt a fly,” said the spokesperson, who requested her name not be published. “He respected law enforcement and even wanted to be an officer.”
