FIRST REPORT (July 12th)

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a man in connection to a weekend shooting in the 1600 block of West Fifth Street.

On Sunday, a 19-year-old man arrived at good Samaritan Hospital in grave condition with a gunshot wound to his face, according to the sheriff’s office. The man was then transported to Miami Valley Hospital and is now listed in serious condition.

The two men who brought the victim to the hospital allegedly gave false information on where the shooting occurred, the sheriff’s office said.
