Dayton police shot a 38-year-old Toledo area man in the hip Monday morning at the Samaritan Behavioral Health CrisisCare Emergency Room after he became violent, Police Chief Richard Biehl said.

“He was volatile, violent and there was an effort to use a Taser,” said Biehl, who noted it appeared the man might have been coming off methamphetamine.

Officers initially were dispatched to the facility, in the 600 block of Edwin C. Moses Boulevard, after receiving a mental health call, Biehl said. Additional police units were requested around 8:30 a.m., police said.

A Dayton police report filed Monday morning indicated police arrested Cory Fraley at the same location of the shooting. 

However, police have not made clear whether Fraley is the man wounded by police.

Two Dayton officers responded to the initial call and one of those officers fired a shot that struck the man in the hip, the chief said. The man’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening, the chief said.

Both officers will be placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol following an officer-involved shooting. The officers’ names are expected to be released Tuesday.

Biehl said there is not much local history on the suspect. The police department is checking across the state for any previous law enforcement activity.

Police are expected to release additional information Tuesday, including video that captured the shooting.

Moses Boulevard was blocked from Washington to Albany streets while police investigated.
