The Montgomery County Prosecutor has filed a motion to try teen murder suspect Keith Reid Jr. as an adult, according to a press release.

The suspect is charged with two counts of murder, one count of felonious assault with a deadly weapon and one count of felonious assault with serious physical harm. All of the counts include three-year firearm specifications.

UPDATE @ 10:45 p.m. (Oct. 6): 

A Dayton teenager wanted on a murder charge is at the Juvenile Justice Center downtown after his arrest late Thursday by Dayton police and the U.S. Marshals Service.

Keith Reid Jr., 17, was arrested at the Summit Square Apartments off Hoover Avenue. It’s the same complex where he is accused of fatally shooting 22-year-old Davion McGhee of Huber Heights.

McGhee’s father said he’s relieved Reid is in custody, but that he is still trying to come to grips with his son’s death.

“Even right now, I just don't believe it. My wife, she's just, we’re all taking it, she’s taking it extra hard,” he said.

McGhee said he knew some of his son’s friends, but never heard of Reid. He doesn't understand why anyone would want to harm his son.

“They don’t value life or nobody else’s life, didn't value my son’s life,” he said. “Anytime someone that young shoots somebody that young, it’s senseless.”
