The shooting affected many who work for the Dayton-based candy maker known for its fine chocolates. Some Esther Price employees knew the victims, according to a statement released Tuesday evening from the company.
Also, a company factory is near the location of the shooting, which happened in the 400 block of East Fifth Street.
“Since 1926, Esther Price has been a Dayton tradition," said Doug Dressman, executive vice president. “Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families. We are proud of the Dayton community and hurt when it hurts.”
