A recently unsealed search warrant application provides additional information about what authorities say led up to a Drug Enforcement Administration agent fatally shooting a man in Springfield.

Authorities say an agent from the DEA’s St. Louis Division shot 25-year-old Caleb Slay on Nov. 2 outside of Slay’s home in the 1800 block of South Maryland Avenue. Slay died at the scene.

After Slay’s death, the Springfield Police Department (the agency investigating the shooting) applied for a search warrant for a U-Haul truck at the scene.

The warrant says two DEA agents had followed the U-Haul truck to Maryland Avenue that day after they observed what they thought was a hand-to-hand drug exchange between the driver of the U-Haul — later identified as Casey Ray — and another person.

The warrant says once Ray parked the U-Haul on Maryland Avenue, the DEA agents got out to talk with him.

That’s when the warrant says Slay and another person pulled up in a green car.
