The second person wounded in a shooting early Friday outside Lebanon — a 16-year-old boy who is a Centerville schools student — is expected to survive, according to authorities.

The initial incident report, released Monday morning, identified the wounded teen as Logan E. Dean, 16, of Centerville.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office on Monday continued to investigate the double-shooting that killed one other teenager.

Mason Nicholas Trudics, 18, a Warren County Career Center student from Centerville, was killed and Dean critically injured early Friday outside Lebanon in a shooting at a house at 1869 Oregonia Road in Turtlecreek Twp.

Prowlers had been reported in the area before the shooting.

The initial report released also indicates the suspect is an unknown male and lists two residents as reportee and witness.

It was unclear where Dean was attending school, based on a statement issued by the Centerville school district.

“We can confirm the other person who was injured is a Centerville student who attends a program outside of Centerville High School. At this time, we do not have any other information to share since the police investigation is ongoing, and that person is a juvenile,” Sarah Swan, community relations specialist, said in an email Friday.

The shooting was discovered by deputies responding Friday to a 2:48 a.m. 911 call.

“Detectives have determined that minutes before this call was received, there was gunfire outside near the residence, which left one 18-year-old male dead and one juvenile critically wounded. Neither of them lived at this residence,” according to a statement issued by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Centerville and Warren County Career Center officials issued statements:

“We are saddened to hear about the shooting in Warren County. We can confirm two people who were injured were Centerville students who were attending programs outside of Centerville High School,” according to the statement.

“We have counseling services available for any students or staff who feel like they need to talk with someone. At this time, we do not have any other information to share since the police investigation is ongoing.”

The career center added: “We were saddened by the news concerning these students: the loss of a student for any reason is very tragic. Our students and staff had access to counselors and grief resources today, and will next week, as we deal with this difficult news. Our hearts are broken for the students’ families, friends and our staff.”

Centerville officials and Warren County Career Center Superintendent Rick Smith said the surviving victim did not attend their schools.

Deputies said the initial call to the home was “for reported prowlers.”

“This is a rapidly evolving homicide investigation spanning multiple jurisdictions. Detectives have and will continue to conduct interviews with cooperating parties and as credible suspect information is available, we will share when appropriate,” according to the release from Chief Deputy Barry Riley.

The owners of the home are James D. and Kristy L. Carmack, according to Warren County property records. A message seeking response was left for the homeowners.

Earlier Friday, the sheriff’s office indicated two people were “suffering from gunshot wounds when located.”

The juvenile’s condition was critical, according to the sheriff’s office.

While deputies investigated at the scene on Oregonia Road, traffic was closed until the afternoon.

“While we are still very early into this investigation, we strongly believe there is no danger to residents,” Riley said then.
