La’Dashiaun “Shawn” Brown, 21, of Dayton, previously was charged with felonious assault and receiving stolen property in the case, according to Xenia Municipal Court records.

On Sept. 12, an 18-year-old woman reportedly picked up her ex-boyfriend, later identified as Brown, plus Davis and Morgan. The group drove down a circle driveway in the area of the 900 block of Ford Road in Xenia Twp. and got out before walking down a set of stairs to the Little Miami River, according to court records.

“At the base of the stairs, (the woman) heard a gunshot and could feel blood running down her shoulder. She turned around and saw ‘Shawn’ pointing a gun at her, and then immediately ran away from the males,” the affidavit stated.

Brown reportedly chased after the woman and tackled her. They both struggled for the gun before she was able to get away, according to court records.

A Xenia police sergeant found the woman near a field on Hilltop Road. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to court documents.

The woman identified Brown as the shooter and told a detective they had broken up two days before, according to the affidavit.

Her car was found later that day in Seneca County in northern Ohio. The Ohio State Highway Patrol and Seneca County Sheriff’s Office arrested Brown and booked him into the Seneca County Jail.

Morgan and Davis were arrested by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office and booked on Wednesday into the Greene County Jail, according to booking records.
