An 18-year-old woman told Greene County Sheriff’s detectives that on Monday morning she picked up her ex-boyfriend, La’Dashiaun “Shawn” Brown, and two other men in Dayton. She then moved to the front passenger seat and let Brown drive her Chevrolet Malibu, according to an affidavit filed in Xenia Municipal Court.

They drove down a circle driveway in the area of the 900 block of Ford Road in Xenia Twp., where she saw a brown barn and a fire pit. The group got out and walked down a set of stairs near the Little Miami River, according to the document.

“At the base of the stairs, (the woman) heard a gunshot and could feel blood running down her shoulder. She turned around and saw ‘Shawn’ pointing a gun at her, and then immediately ran away from the males,” the affidavit stated.

She ran from the group, but Brown reportedly chased her.

“[The woman] related that she was tackled by ‘Shawn’ and the two struggled over the gun for a few moments before she eventually was able to get away,” the affidavit read.

The woman crossed the river on a walking bridge and ran across a field before she was found on Hilltop Road by a Xenia Police Department sergeant. She was taken Miami Valley Hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening, the documents stated.

The woman identified Brown as the shooter and told a detective they had been dating for two months but broke up two days before, according to court documents.

The Chevy Malibu was found Monday afternoon in Seneca County in northern Ohio. Brown was taken into custody by the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio State Highway Patrol and was booked into the Seneca County Jail in Tiffin.
