“There’s a woman that just got on my bus that said she’s been shot,” said a 911 caller who identified herself as a driver for RTA’s Project Mobility, which runs on smaller buses in the paratransit fleet.

The woman was bleeding “very badly,” and had been “knocking somebody’s car windows out” before she was shot, the caller said.

The woman got on the bus at the front while the driver was helping put a passenger on the bus, the driver told the 911 operator.

“I’m very concerned for me and the other passengers,” she said.

The man who identified himself as the shooter also called 911 to report the shooting.

He said he saw the woman hitting his car with a golf club. The woman threatened to shoot him so he went back inside. The woman followed him inside his apartment building, beat on his door and shot at him, according to 911 call logs.

The man fired his gun at the woman through the door, striking her.

The man was interviewed and released and the woman was charged with aggravated menacing and criminal damaging, a Dayton police news release said.

The woman was shot multiple times, according to initial reports. Her injuries are not life-threatening, according to the release.
