Mitchel “Max” Miller, 28, was shot by masked intruders who forced their way into a condo in the 5600 block of East Coach Drive around 8 p.m. on Sept. 19, according to a police report.

People on the scene drove Miller to Miami Valley South Hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries.

Police responded to the condo after dispatchers received a woman called 911 and said a person was shot, read a court affidavit.

Witnesses in the condo during the incident told police that three to four males entered the condo, ordered everyone inside to the floor and then began stealing items, according to the affidavit.

“One of the suspects began to hit Mitchell M. Miller about the head with a pistol,” the affidavit read. “Suspect number 1, before leaving the condo, fired one shot, striking the victim, Mitchel M. Miller, in the back while he was on the floor.”

The other two people in the condo reportedly dragged Miller to the car to take him to the hospital. As they were getting Miller into the car, another man arrived at the condo and helped get Miller into the car.

In the affidavit, a detective wrote that Head “admitted” to his part in the incident, but further details about his role was not available.

The detective also wrote that Head admitted to know that the suspect had firearms going into the robbery and that he received items as a result of the incident.
