Man dies following shooting outside Dayton shopping center Sunday

Police officers are investigating after a man died after he was shot outside a Dayton shopping center Sunday morning.

The man was identified as 33-year-old Reinaldo Gomez Taylor, of Dayton, according to Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger.

Dayton police responded to the Save-A-Lot at 2152 N. Gettysburg Ave. around 3:20 a.m. Sunday after multiple 911 callers reported a shooting.

“We need somebody to come save his life,” a 911 caller said. “He got shot. Come get this man.”

When asked where the victim was shot the caller said “everywhere,” according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch records.

Another caller who identified herself as the victim’s sister said she didn’t see the shooter.

“Crews found Reinaldo Taylor suffering from gunshot wounds,” said Dayton police Lt. Steve Bauer. “Mr. Taylor was removed to the Miami Valley Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.”

It was the second fatal shooting in Dayton Sunday morning. Just after midnight a woman called 911 and said a man was on her porch on Elberon Avenue.

The man was banging on the door and saying he was shot, according to dispatch records.

Crews transported 42-year-old Jermaine Chatman, of Dayton, to Miami Valley Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the coroner’s office.

Anyone with information on either shootings should call Dayton Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 937-333-1232 or Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP (7867) or on their website
