A Dayton resident shot and killed a man who tried to enter her home Tuesday evening, according to Dayton Police.
The man was identified today as 53-year-old Darron Orr.
Here’s what we know so far—and what we’re gathering—about the shooting in Dayton:
Resident knew the deceased prior to the shooting
According to Dayton police reports, Orr had been arrested in May for threatening a woman at the same address.
On May 10, Dayton officers were dispatched to the 200 block of E. Fairview Avenue where the victim said her friend, Orr, had assaulted and threatened her.
The woman also reported a break-in at her home in 2012, but no one was arrested.
Multiple calls for help
Tuesday night, the unidentified resident made multiple calls for emergency assistance: first when Orr allegedly tried breaking into her home and then while requesting an ambulance after he’d been shot.
According to regional dispatch, there have been at least five calls to service at the residence since May, though it’s unclear at this point if all the calls are connected.
We’re working to find the connection between those 9-1-1 calls and Tuesday’s incident.
Who is Darron Orr?
Orr, who police identified as the alleged intruder, has a criminal history dating back as far as 2000. In 2015, he was arrested on felony weapons possession charges after a traffic stop in Dayton. He was also arrested and convicted of felony possession of cocaine in 2005.
