Donald Mays, 35, finally met his doom late one Tuesday
evening after jumping out of a neighbor's closet and scuffling with
the homeowner. The behavior apparently was not out of character for
Mays. In previous years, he had broken into several apartments,
tying up and robbing residents, and even raping, choking and
threatening to kill a female victim. In his final outburst, Mays,
who had been released from prison in another state and had moved to
Arizona to live with his brother, may have entered the wrong house
in a drunken stupor. This time, howver, circumstances were not kind
to the long-time ne'er-do-well. The episode ended when Mays was
fatally shot by the terrified homeowner.
