“Dispatch informed responding officers that the victim was being transported by friends to a nearby hospital and that the victim had suffered a gunshot wound to the arm. The injury was later determined to be non-life threatening,” the department said.

Through an investigation, officers determined a shooting occurred in a parking lot and were able to take a suspect into custody, the department said. The suspect was not named in the release, and charges are pending review by the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office.

“At this time, there are no additional suspects. Anyone with additional information is being asked to contact the Fairborn Police Department at 937-754-3000,” the sheriff’s office said.

The 2:30 a.m. shooting prompted Wright State officials to send a campuswide email about the shooting in accordance with the federal Jeanne Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, which requires colleges and universities with financial aid programs to disclose information about nearby crime.
