MONROE, La. (KTVE/KARD)– On May 17, 2021, the Monroe Police Department received information from concerned citizens who advised that 19-year-old Terraus Mays was going live on Facebook making threats to unknown people in the “AQ” area of Monroe.

Officers also heard a woman in the background of the video telling Mays the police will be notified of his behavior.

Mays was then heard saying that he will shoot it out with the police if they come. After making that statement, Mays then brandished a tan .223 AR 15 style pistol which possessed a black 30 round magazine attached to it.

Mays then gets out of the vehicle in the parking lot of the Bernstein Park Road, carrying the aforementioned firearm. He then advises his viewers that he was going to “AQ” if anyone wanted to kill him.
