Dayton police are working to determine what led to a shooting behind Roosters restaurant that left one man dead and another wounded.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the fatal victim as Leo Montgomery, 21.

Two victims were brought to Good Samaritan Hospital from the shooting, which happened just before 5:30 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of the restaurant, location in the 3500 block of North Main Street.
