Dayton police investigating after 1 dead, 6 injured in 4 shootings

Multiple shootings are under investigation after a person was killed and six were injured in four shootings that took place within a nearly 24-hour span.

A 23-year-old man was killed in a shooting reported around 4:48 a.m. Sunday near Steele Avenue and Pierce Street. Two other victims, a 25-year-old man and a 26-year-old man, arrived at Miami Valley Hospital seeking medical care, said Dayton police Lt. Steven Bauer.

A 911 caller reported someone saw a man laying in the street saying he’d been shot and that three people walked by, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center records.

A vehicle crashed in the 100 block of Pierce Street with the 23-year-old man inside. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released at this time.

At 3:32 a.m. Sunday, police learned of a 45-year-old man who arrived at Miami Valley Hospital with a gunshot wound that was reported as not life-threatening. A potential shooting scene was found at Robeson Place and Stewart Street, Bauer said.

The third shooting Sunday was reported around 11:53 p.m. after two men with gunshot wounds walked in to Kettering Health Dayton. Both are 19 and have injuries that are not life-threatening after they were shot near Oakridge Drive and Delphos Avenue, according to Bauer.

A few hours later, at 4:38 a.m. Monday, officers responded to Miami Valley Hospital after a 37-year-old man was dropped off by a private vehicle. He was in stable condition.

Investigators believe he was given a ride near North Main Street and Siebenthaler Avenue, said Bauer.

All four shootings remain under investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call 937-333-1232 to speak to a detective. People also can report tips anonymously to Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP (7867) or
