He is accused of firing a gun from a moving vehicle at another vehicle early in the morning on March 26 while on North Broadway Street. The driver of the second vehicle, 47-year-old Anthony Render of Dayton, was shot and killed during the incident, according to an affidavit.

Around 1:45 a.m. on March 26, police responded to the 1100 block of North Broadway Street after receiving multiple reports of gunfire.

“Upon arrival officers located a vehicle that been involved in a crash and observed the adult male driver was unresponsive,” Dayton police Lt. Jason Hall said. “Officers forced entry into the vehicle to provide aid and found the individual was suffering from gunshot wounds. The driver was transported to the hospital by medics where his condition was determined to be life-threatening, and tragically he died [Monday, March 28,] morning as a result of his injuries.”

Hall said the initial investigation indicated it was not a random shooting.
