“The initial indication is that it is a disagreement about money and property that tragically escalated into guns fired,” Lt. Jason Hall said during a media briefing earlier this month.
Cleary told officers Powers hit him in the face and the two started fighting over a gun on the floor, according to Dayton Municipal Court records. Cleary reportedly got the gun and shot Powers as Powers was running away.
“Cleary stated he shot him because he thought that Powers was going to come back with people,” an affidavit read.
Dean was standing at the bottom of the stairs when the shooting began and left the building and got into his parked car. Shaw went outside and started shooting at Dean, according to court documents.
“Dean runs from his vehicle and is chased down by Shaw,” the affidavit read. “Shaw shoots Dean in the back of the neck, killing Dean.”
Shaw also shot and wounded a third person inside prior to shooting Dean, according to court documents.
Cleary and Shaw remain in the Montgomery County Jail and are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
