Police received multiple reports of a shooting just before 2 p.m. near Mayfair Road and Hillcrest Avenue.

Initial reports indicated the shooting was in the 200 block of Cellarius Court, according to police dispatchers.

“Once the crews arrived on scene they did find the victim in one of the vehicles here on the street,” Beavers said. “They had the medics come in. They immediately removed him to the hospital.”

Dayton’s homicide unit, violent crimes bureau and street officers responded to the shooting and were talking to witnesses and reviewing surveillance video.

Some crews also were searching for a possible suspect or suspects, who are believed to have fled on foot, Beavers said.
