Two people were shot, one fatally, following an incident that may have been sparked by an altercation at an area nightclub.

  • Shooting reported on East Siebenthaler Avenue, Dayton
  • Audriaunna Jackson, 20, fatally shot
  • Keysaun Harris, 22, suffers gunshot

UPDATE @ 10:40 p.m. (July 7):

Shooting victim Kesaun Harris is no longer listed as a patient at Miami Valley Hospital.

UPDATE @ 3:30 p.m.: (July 6):

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has ruled Adriaunna Jackson’s death a homicide. She died of a gunshot wound to the head, officials said.

UPDATE @ 2:30 p.m.:

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is still gathering information about the shooting that led to one fatality, said Capt. Jeremy Roy, commander of the Harrison Twp. sheriff substation. The office is working with Dayton police and the like to get more information, he said, adding that the sheriff’s office did not get any calls about the shooting.

Plush has been an ongoing concern for Harrison Twp. officials for several years, and multiple attempts to revoke the business’ liquor license or to prevent a renewal have been unsuccessful, Roy said Friday.

Problems at the club continue to get worse each year, he said, noting that the sheriff’s office has had 93 service calls there since Jan. 1. Some of the service calls were for routine checks, but others were for shots fired, disorderly crowd, large fights and homicide, Roy said.

Prior to Friday morning’s shooting, someone called with concerns early Thursday morning, saying there was an abduction at Plush Club. Deputies checked into that call and didn’t find anything, Roy said.

The parties involved in that incident returned to the club Thursday night, leading to Friday’s shooting, Roy said.

Neighbors are fed up with the violence at the club, he said.

“They’re sick of shots fired at night, they're sick of big fights. When there are fights, they're leaving the parking lot at high rates of speed,” Roy said.

UPDATE @ 9:20 a.m.:  One of the two victims wounded in the shooting at North Main Street and East Siebenthaler Avenue has died, according to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office.

Adriaunna Jackson, 21, of Dayton was identified as the fatality. Her cause of death has not been officially ruled, according to the coroner’s office.

No condition information was available for the second victim, 22-year-old Keysaun Harris, who was taken to Miami Valley Hospital.

UPDATE @ 5:45 a.m.: 

An altercation early Thursday at Plush Gentlemen’s Club in Harrison Twp. sparked again early Friday and ended in the shooting of at least two people at North Main Street and East Siebenthaler Avenue in Dayton.

Police and Montgomery County Sheriff's deputies will be working to piece together what ignited the altercation at the club on 2213 Wagner Ford Road, Dayton Sgt. Jeffery Spires said.

The two victims found around 4 a.m. in a bullet-riddled sedan have been taken to Miami Valley Hospital, the sergeant said.

Spires said that one of the victims was driving the car and there apparently were no witnesses to the shooting. Investigators are working to learn how many people were involved in the altercation and the shooting, he said.

There was an initial report of a second crime scene, in the area of North Main Street at Philadelphia Drive. That report was unfounded, the sergeant said.

“There should be no concern to the public,” Spires said. “This all started at Club Plush ... and spilled over into the Dayton area.”
