“Every time I’ve been here it’s been so calm. There never seems to be anything out of the ordinary,” said Emily Hanrahan of New Carlisle.
The man was later transported to Miami Valley Hospital where police further interviewed him. He said he had gotten into an argument with the owner of a food vendor and claimed the owner had punched him once, then again, and ‘knocked him out’ before pulling a gun. The man ran away to hide in a nearby dumpster and realized he’d been shot, stated the report.
Vending carts and food trucks were all packed up by the time police responded.
News from this incident didn’t stop people from enjoying their Saturday night. “I only go places where I know that I’m going to have a good time and not have to worry about that. If I’m going to the Oregon District, I don’t have to worry about that,” said Phil Crisp of Springfield.
There are currently no leads on suspects or other witnesses at this time.
