A 15-year-old who was shot Wednesday afternoon in Dayton was taken to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition.

Emergency crews responded to the 2700 block of Madden Hills Drive at 3:33 p.m. on a report of a possible shooting, according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

The shooting victim called 911 and told dispatchers there was a fight and the people involved pulled out guns.
