It is Shackleford’s second indictment for attempted murder in shootings that happened May 8 in Moraine and May 11 in Dayton.

In the Moraine shooting, a 911 caller told police that he was riding in a silver Chevrolet Tahoe driven by the gunshot victim, a 25-year-old Dayton woman, looking for a hotel. While driving down Broadway Street, the woman made a wrong turn onto Nicholas Road. When she made a U-turn, two people got into the SUV, according to a police report.

“[The man] said the subjects began yelling at them to drive and ordered them not to turn around,” read the report. “[The man] said he slightly looked back and saw one subject had a gun.”

“The suspects directed them to the Red Roof Inn and one said, ‘Do you think I’m playing?’ at which time he heard six gunshots,” according to the report.

The man pulled the woman out of the SUV after she was shot, and one of the suspects hopped in the driver’s seat and took off toward Dayton.
