  • The victim was shot at least once, according to police.

It’s unclear how many shots were fired.

Xenia Police Capt. Alonzo Wilson said the victim heard a noise outside the home and went to investigate. The victim was inside the home and was shot by an intruder outside, according to Wilson.

"There's nothing that we have right now to believe that there's someone walking around the neighborhood just randomly shooting people,” Wilson said. “That's not what we have here."

Police and emergency crews were dispatched to the 1900 block of Vermont Drive a little before 6:28 a.m. Wednesday. 

The victim’s wife called 9-1-1 after hearing a single gunshot. She witnessed blood on her husband before locking herself and her baby inside another room in the house, according to initial reports.
