Patterson and the shooter were acquainted, Dayton police Lt. Jason Hall previously said.
The department confirmed earlier this week that a suspect had been arrested and detained, but that further investigation was needed before charges could be filed.
Police did not release the suspect’s name at that time.
“It was learned that Ms. Patterson was shot and killed by Mr. Lerone McKenzie,” a court affidavit read. A witness also identified McKenzie as the suspect, according to documents.
McKenzie was arrested at his home on Broadbrush Drive in Trotwood and booked at 7:39 p.m. Thursday into the Montgomery County Jail, records show.
It is not clear what led to the shooting nor the nature of Patterson and McKenzie’s acquaintance.
