Father arrested after teenage daughter shot in Dayton

A father is in Montgomery County Jail and Dayton police are investigating the shooting of a 15-year-old girl.

Steven Brandy, 55, was booked into jail on a complaint of felonious assault at around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, according to jail records. He has not been formally charged as of Monday evening.

A Dayton police report says authorities were called to the 2000 block of Elsmere Avenue at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

911 calls obtained by the Dayton Daily News detail a chaotic scene in which three calls were placed within a matter of minutes.

The first time, the teenager called dispatch and asked them to bring officers to arrest her father, Brandy, for beating her.

“I need you all to come (to the residence) and take this man to jail for being a woman beater on his own daughter,” the teenager says.

She tells dispatchers that the man had a razor and a knife when he attacked her.

But during the call, the teenager stops responding to the dispatcher’s questions and the phone call ends.

Then a new call begins minutes later that was placed by a man saying that he shot his daughter. He asks for emergency personal to respond to the address immediately.

“I just shot my daughter,” the man says. “Please send somebody quick.”

The man stops talking to the dispatcher and can be heard trying to treat the teenager victim. The dispatcher attempted to talk to the man again to obtain more information, but the call instead ends.

Then the third and last call is placed by the teenager, pleading for help.

“Please come get me, I need help,” she says. “I got shot, please help me. Please Lord, I need you.”

The third call ends with an officer getting on the live line and telling dispatcher that emergency responders are at the scene.

The condition of the 15-year-old was not available Monday evening.
