A 20-year-old Dayton man, the father of a 3-year-old girl, died Thursday after a shooting involving FBI agents conducting a drug investigation at a beverage store near the Dayton Mall.

Jermaine C. Coleman Jr., 20, of Dayton died at Kettering Medical Center at 3:30 p.m., according to the Montgomery Warren County Coroner’s Office.

Coleman was fatally shot and two other Dayton men, Tyler Christian, 26, and Tobe McLarty, 26, were taken into custody following a shootout reported at 3:09 p.m. Thursday at Beverage Palace, 8980 Kingsride Dr., according to a Miami Twp. police report.

The incident comes on the heels of recent arrests as part of a heroin trafficking investigation in the Dayton Mall area.

On Friday, Christian and McLarty, who was wounded in the incident, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Sharon Ovington in federal court in Dayton on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin and assault on a federal officer.

Christian also is charged with one count of making a false statement to a law enforcement officer. Ovington ordered each man held without bond until a detention hearing on April 10.

A group of FBI agents gathered about 10:30 a.m. Friday outside the store at 8980 Kingsridge. They appeared to be gathering evidence and taking measurements using laser equipment. They declined to comment.

Witnesses on Thursday said they saw about 10 police vehicles heading toward the store shortly before the shooting.

“The next thing you heard was, ‘FBI get down!’ Then I heard four shots. Boom boom boom boom! And that was it,” Rachel Sorise said.

Family members said Coleman is survived by a daughter, Zyonn Coleman, 3, of Dayton. He was described as a graduate of the Arise Academy who played football at Northridge High School and worked in lawn care.

Pinson said Coleman and his daughter lived with her on Iriquois Avenue in Dayton.

“He was a magnificent child,” Pinson said, as family and friends gathered at the home of Coleman’s grandmother’s home on Burleigh Avenue in West Dayton.

Coleman’s family and friends complained about learning Friday of his death.

“Something is not right with this,” Coleman’s mother, Demecca Pinson said.

Pinson said she didn’t learn of her son’s death until he called the coroner’s office Friday. There was no mention of a fatal shooting in the FBI statement or police report.

“Three subjects were taken into custody. Two of these subjects were transported by medics and fire personnel to a nearby medical facility after sustaining gunshot wounds,” according to the FBI statement issued at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Coleman was serving probation ordered in 2010 in two cases in Montgomery County for carrying a concealed weapon, assault and aggravated menacing, according to court records.

On Friday, an FBI spokesman referred questions to the local police department, Montgomery Sheriff’s Office and county coroner. Miami Twp. police was referring questions back to the federal agency.

A coroner’s office spokesman declined to comment on Coleman’s cause of death, pending an autopsy.

“By protocol, an independent review team from FBI Headquarters will conduct an investigation. Miami Township Police and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will also be investigating this incident which occurred in their jurisdictions,” according to Thursday’s statement.’

Montgomery Sheriff’s Office officials said they were not investigating the incident.

            Motorcyclist walks away from 90 mph head-on crash with SUV

Witnesses said a speeding motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet when he slammed into an SUV on Monday night, causing him to be thrown at least 20 feet before he got up, got into a waiting car and went to an Ohio hospital with minor injuries, police in Dayton said.

"Miraculously, witnesses said he got up, walked to a car that had stopped to see if he was OK, and (then) that vehicle transported him to Good Samaritan Hospital," Sgt. Ryan Halburnt said.

The motorcyclist was treated for minor injuries and was expected to be released Tuesday. The slight injuries were a result of "good luck -- and some people say miracles happen," Halburnt said.

The driver of the SUV was a shaken up, "but everybody's going home in one piece," he said.

The crash, reported around 9:40 p.m. in the 1800 block of North Gettysburg Avenue, caused police to shut down the road from Cornell Drive to North James H. McGee Boulevard.

According to a preliminary investigation, witnesses told police the motorcycle was headed north on Gettysburg Avenue when it went left of center and into the path of the SUV. Investigators estimated the motorcyclist was traveling at a minimum of 90 mph on impact.

The debris field left by the crash was so large that police officers used the rooftops of several nearby buildings to search for victims. The motorcyclist's keys and wallet were found approximately 100 feet from where the collision occurred.

Authorities do not believe alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.

Police said the motorcyclist, who was not identified, will likely be cited for failure to control his vehicle, speeding and reckless operation of a vehicle. The charges will be determined by police department traffic accident investigators.

Authorities continue to investigate.

            California officer killed by gang member while responding to traffic accident, police say

The gang member, who was not identified, was injured after he shot a semi-automatic gun at Whittier police officers and they returned fire, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The shooting was reported around 8 a.m. after authorities were called to a three-car collision, the Whittier Daily News reported. The shooting happened near the intersection of Mar Vista Street and Colima Road, deputies said.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. John Corina told reporters that the gunman was driving a stolen vehicle when he collided with two other vehicles on Colima Road. Authorities said the man opened fire on officers as they were approaching the scene of the crash.

The officers returned fire and struck the man at least once, deputies said.

Emergency officials took the injured police officers and the injured gunman to a pair of hospitals for treatment, where one of the officers died, the Daily News reported. Police did not immediately identify the slain officer or any of the other people involved in the incident.

"It's extremely tragic," Corina told The Associated Press. "You just never know when officers respond to a call what they are going to run into."

Both the gunman and the wounded officer were in stable condition Monday afternoon, the Times reported. The other people involved in the accident that sparked police response were not injured, according to the AP.

About 130 sworn officers make up the force of the Whittier Police Department, according to the Times. The department is tasked with policing Whittier and Santa Fe Springs in southeastern Los Angeles County.

UPDATE @ 9:22 p.m.: An autopsy is to be performed Tuesday on a man shot and killed by a citizen as he struggled with an Indiana Conservation Officer near Rising Sun, Ind. 

Indiana State Patrol officials are not releasing the name of the woman who fired the shot that hit 32-year-old Justin Holland, of Moores Hill, Ind., in his torso. He died at Dearborn County Hospital not long after he was taken there by medic unit. 

The autopsy is to determine cause of death, according to a statement issued through the ISP-Versailles District 42, Versailles, Ind. The statement was attributed to Sgt. Stephen Wheeles. 

The woman lives near where the altercation between Holland and the conservation officer was occurring shortly after 12:30 p.m. in the 8300 block of state Route 56, west of Rising Sun. 

The officer, whose name is not being released, was dispatched on a suspicious person. At some point during their interaction, Holland began to resist the officer. 

According to ISP's preliminary investigation, the woman went to help the officer "who was being overtaken by Holland." She fired a personally owned firearm once. 

The conservation officer suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the county hospital as well, according to ISP. 

ISP officials said the names of the woman and the officer will not be released, pending the outcome of the investigation. She is not in custody, according to ISP.

Rising Sun is approximately 80 miles southwest of Dayton.
