Police: 5 arrested in Miamisburg home invasion, death case

Police: 5 arrested during Miamisburg home invasion investigation

UPDATE @ 2:10 p.m.:

While investigating a home invasion and shooting death of Noah Kinser, Miamisburg police have arrested five people.

The five arrests are unrelated to the shooting death and home invasion, said Chief John Sedlak.

 

Police have not said why the five were arrested or if any of them had any connection to the home invasion and deadly shooting.

A 14-year-old was also wounded during the invasion.

Police believe the motive was a robbery, but declined to say why the North First Street apartment was targeted.

“A variety of evidence and items” were collected from the apartment, but Sedlak would not specify further.

He also said that police have “high confidence” that they will solve the case.

A “significant amount of hours” have been spent on the case, including regular hours and overtime, according to Sedlak.

INITIAL STORY:

Police plan today to address questions about the deadly shooting that claimed the life a Miamisburg High School student in a Dec. 30 late-night home invasion.

Police have so far offered limited information and have declined to answer questions into their investigation into the death of Noah Kinser, an 18-year-old who authorities said died of a gunshot wound to the chest at a North First Street apartment in a targeted attack just before 10 p.m. that day.

The decision by police to address questions comes as services are scheduled for Kinser. His visitation is set from 2 to 7 p.m. at Newcomer South Chapel, 3940 Kettering Blvd., Kettering.

Services will take place after the visitation at 7 p.m. with interment set for Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Highland Memorial Cemetery.

Miamisburg police said last week they are seeking two male suspects who fled the scene at 119 N. First St. in a dark sedan after the shooting.

Initial reports indicate seven gunshots were heard, police records show. Five officers responded to the scene, where there was “blood all over,” according to police records.

Those same records state “AK 47 in the room” and “several handguns in the room,” but do not indicate where they were found or who owned them.

Kinser was inside an apartment at the address when two armed individuals entered to commit a robbery, police have said.

Once inside the apartment, the suspects opened fire, killing Kinser and hospitalizing a second victim, whose is believed to have been treated and released from a hospital. The assailants fled in the car, police have said.
