Poullard apparently exchanged fire with the suspects, and was struck in the abdomen. Police said he died at the scene. Officials said the contents of the apartment had been torn apart. The home invaders had even searched through the ice bin in the freezer. Police said Woodard told them he burglarized Poullard's apartment to find illegal drugs. Officials said their investigation has found that the murder victim was involved in illegal drug trade. Woodard was charged with criminal homicide and booked into the Metro Criminal Justice Center. He was held on a $1 million bond.
