Police seek car that drove through yellow tape at Dayton shooting scene

Dayton police are looking for a car that drove through yellow crime scene tape Tuesday night while officers were investigating a shooting that critically injured a man.

Officers responded to the shooting reported around 8:50 p.m. in the 1000 block of Philadelphia Drive.

“Someone just got shot on my street,” a 911 caller told the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

The 911 caller reported hearing 10 to 12 gunshots fired and saw the shooter run up the street, leaving the gunshot victim in the middle of the road calling for help.

When police and medics arrived, they found a 32-year-old man who had been shot several times. He was taken to Miami Valley Hospital in critical but stable condition, said Dayton police Lt. Steven Bauer.

The suspect is known to the victim, he said.

The Dayton Police Department released cruiser dash camera video footage on Wednesday that showed the vehicle, which appeared to be a dark colored SUV, drive past cruisers with their flashing lights on and through part of the taped off crime scene.

No officers were injured when the vehicle drove through the crime tape.

However, Dayton police Sgt. Jeffery Spires said those actions put in danger the lives of crime scene investigators who were working inside the closed off portion of the road.

Anyone with information on the shooting or the vehicle that drove through the scene is urged to call 937-333-1232 to speak with a detective. To make an anonymous tip, call Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP (7867) or go to www.miamivalleycrimestoppers.com.
