Dasean Murrell, 20, of Dayton, was arrested on suspicion of felonious assault, domestic violence and having weapons while under disability, all felonies, according to a Dayton police report. He also is charged with aggravated menacing, a misdemeanor, Montgomery County Jail records show.



A manager at the apartment complex called police around 11 a.m. and reported that a man fired a gun at a woman as she drove away.

In a 911 call, the manager said she called about an hour earlier about the pair fighting in the parking lot and that she wasn’t sure whether police had responded.

After the woman drove off, the man reportedly went back to her apartment.

“I do not believe he hit the car,” the manager said. “It was like he shot in the air directed toward her. My maintenance man was out there, but he didn’t see impact.”

No injuries were reported.
