Taylor told deputies he and a woman friend were drinking and got into an argument, after which she left, and a short time later the woman’s son and another male showed up at his back door threatening him, according to the statement of facts on file with Xenia Municipal Court.
The male who accompanied the woman’s son reported that when they knocked on the door an argument ensued and Taylor threatened to shoot if they didn’t get off his property, according to the court record.
The witness told deputies when he heard what sounded like a gun being loaded he ran away, but then heard gunfire, according to the court record.
The woman’s son had been shot in the abdomen. He and the other male managed to flee to a nearby residence.
Taylor told deputies one of the two was trying to enter his home through a window and he defended himself because he “feared for his life,” according to the court record.

HUBER HEIGHTS — Executive Boulevard lanes in Huber Heights reopened after being closed for several hours following a gas leak Thursday morning.
Crews continued to make repairs to the leaking gas line that evacuated fifteen business along the road around 11 a.m., according to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth.
Ashworth said a construction crew working in the area struck a 6-inch gas main directly under Executive, which caused the gas to leak from underground.
Executive is one of the city’s most commercial areas and Ashworth said the leak would impact the businesses in the area.
Utility companies, including DP&L and Vectren, worked on scene to isolate their utilities as well.

NEW LEBANON — UPDATE @ 1:55 p.m.
A male sophomore at Dixie High School is facing charges after posting concerning statements on social media directed towards staff and students at the school, according to New Lebanon police Capt. Jim Chambers.
School administrators contacted police around 9:30 a.m. Thursday after students alerted teachers of the messages posted to social media, Chambers said. The suspect was arrested and has been booked into the Montgomery County Juvenile Justice Center on a charge of inducing panic.
“With the events in Florida, this obviously concerns our agency,” Chambers said. “We owe it to the public to keep them safe.”
“We’re going to work with folks at the juvenile justice center and the prosecutor’s office to find a resolution to this matter, hopefully one that fixes the problem,” Chambers said.
A Dixie High School sophomore was taken into custody Thursday after administrators said the student posted concerning messages on social media regarding a school shooting.
New Lebanon Local Schools Superintendent Greg Williams said other students made administrators aware of the social media post around 9:30 a.m., shortly after the post was made.
According to Williams, police were called to the school and the student was removed from the building by New Lebanon Police. We’ve contacted police to see if the student was ultimately arrested and if the student will be facing any charges.
Williams added that the social media post was not a specific threat of a shooting at Dixie, but the message warranted action by the school.
