Dayton teen charged as an adult in shooting of mom’s boyfriend

A Dayton teen is facing charges as an adult in the shooting of his mother’s boyfriend earlier this year.

Gregory M. Jones, 17, was indicted on two counts each of felonious assault and aggravated robbery, as well as one count of having weapons while under disability, according to Montgomery County Common Pleas Court records.

The charges stem from a shooting on April 27 at a Ryburn Avenue apartment in Dayton.

A woman called 911 after she reportedly heard gunshots coming from a downstairs apartment. She said a man was screaming, according to dispatch records.

“I can’t see him. I can’t get in his house,” she told a dispatcher. “He’s telling me to kick his door in.”

The man identified Jones as the shooter and said the teen left with his wallet and cell phone, according a press release issued by the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office earlier this year.

The man was critically injured and had multiple surgeries as a result, according to the press release.

Jones previously was convicted of stabbing the same man and placed on probation, which ended in February, the prosecutor’s office said.

“Obviously, being given probation in the juvenile system did nothing to rehabilitate him,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said earlier this year. “He will now be tried,  convicted and sentenced as an adult for this violent act.”

Jones is scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 1.
