COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and Chief Ricky Boren are asking employees of the Columbus Consolidated Government, the citizens of Columbus, friends in Russell County, and other partners throughout the Valley Region to join in a moment of silent reflection for the life and public service of deceased Special Agent Thomas Keith Slay.

"We ask that you lift up his family at this difficult time and pray for their comfort and peace of mind in the face of this tragedy," Tomlinson and Boren said in a media release today, July 31. "All flags will remain at half-staff for three days in memoriam of Agent Slay."

Tomlinson and Boren also ask for continued thoughts and prayers for Special Agent Brad Evans of the Russell County Alabama Sheriff's Office and his family as he remains in critical condition at the Columbus Medical Center. "We pray for Agent Evans' complete and speedy recovery," they said.
