The standoff ended around 1:15 p.m. after crews learned the suspect was not inside the apartment.
“We go off the information that we have that we develop on scene from individuals who were witnesses,” said Malson. “One of the reason that SWAT and HNT are called out is for the ability to try to safely resolve that situation. … We do err on the side of caution and bring the teams out in any situation we think they’d be beneficial.”
Taylor and Trigg had been in an argument over the past few weeks, police said.
The suspect has not been charged and no arrests have been made in Taylor’s shooting, police confirmed Tuesday.
Anyone with information on the shooting or Trigg’s whereabouts is urged to call Dayton police at 937-333-COPS (2677), the Dayton homicide unit at 937-333-1199 or to remain anonymous, Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP (2867).
