“We were dispatched here on a domestic situation. About a minute and a half later, while crews were en route, that call was changed to someone has been shot at the scene, “ Montgomery County Sheriff Rob Streck said. “When we arrived we indeed did find that someone had been shot.”

Jefferson Twp. medics were there quickly, and deputies and police from throughout the county, including Dayton, began looking for the known male suspect, the sheriff said.

“We do believe we have the individual responsible in custody,” said Streck.

The sheriff did not identify the suspect. However, Montgomery County Jail records show that 24-year-old Vincent Darnell Redd Jr. was booked for murder but is not formally charged.

The woman shot, who also was not identified, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with injuries considered life-threatening. She has since died of her injuries.

The sheriff did not say what type of gun was used but that deputies have recovered the weapon.
