Jail and dispatch records show Miami Twp. Police arrested Dennis Lamar Taylor while investigating the shooting, however his role was not immediately known. He was booked on a preliminary charge of felonious assault.
Officers responded to the hotel after a worker reported a man shot in the head outside the main lobby.
“I need the police and the paramedics. There’s a gunshot victim right outside of my lobby,” a hotel worker told 9-1-1 dispatchers. "He's laying by the SUV right now."
The victim was taken to Kettering Medical Hospital, where he was in surgery Wednesday night. An updated condition was not immediately available.
The 9-1-1 caller was quickly able to provide a description of the pickup truck that fled from the hotel’s parking lot, which led police to spot the vehicle on I-75 driving north from Ohio route 725.
A manhunt for the second suspect was underway for a couple hours near the Sandy’s Towing lot and an OSHP aviation unit responded to help look for the second suspect. The search was suspended around 4 p.m.
Anyone with information on the shooting or the people involved can contact Miami Twp. Police Det. Sgt. Mike Siney at 937-531-4061 or 937-608-1061.
