Hall identified Shamarr Bodine, 20, as a person of interest in the shooting.
Hall asked anyone with information about this event to come forward so they could solve the crime. The girl had no part in the fight, he said, and was an innocent bystander.
“Just some very reckless actions on the part of others,” Hall said.
Dayton police were called shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday to the 5500 block of West Riverview Avenue, where a man’s body was found in a wooded area about midway between West Riverview Avenue and Wolf Creek. The man had been shot, and there were signs of fire around the man, Hall said.
It was not clear how long the body had been in the woods, nor have investigators yet identified the man, he said.
Police declined to release more information, citing the ongoing investigation.
In addition to the two deaths, police are investigating a shooting reported around 11:50 p.m. Friday on Hoover Avenue near Tyson Avenue, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center records.
One person was shot in the stomach and taken to Miami Valley Hospital. Hall said police have identified persons of interest and secured an arrest warrant.
Hall said violent crime in general increases during the summer across the country. A total of 20 homicides have happened in Dayton so far this year, he said.
