DAYTON — Update@6:09 p.m. (Jan. 8):
A person of interest in the December Caliph Court murder was arrested Monday on unrelated charges, Dayton police announced Monday.
Anton Hurston Jr., 19, was being held in the Montgomery County Jail Monday evening after being arrested Monday morning. He’s being held on probation violation charges.
Dayton police homicide detectives said they will meet with prosecutors this week regarding potential charges in the murder of Dauntiaunna Brown, 18. She was gunned down in the 1400 block of Tampa Avenue in December.
“I mean honestly, if that's the right person who actually did it, then it's a good thing because nobody deserves to lose a child and the person just go free,” neighbor Mynia Daniels said of Hurston’s arrest.
Brown's friends and family have kept balloons up and candles burning at her unused apartment ever since her death, they said.
UPDATE @10:30 a.m.
A SWAT standoff related to a fatal shooting where an 18-year-old woman was killed has ended.
Four people were in the home in the 1400 block of Tampa Avenue when police made entry. The shooting suspect was not inside, but one person was arrested on an unrelated traffic incident, police said.
UPDATE @ 8:45 a.m.
The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has identified the woman killed in an overnight shooting on Caliph Court as Dontiaunna Brown, 18, of Dayton.

BEAVERCREEK — Crews evacuated and investigated the Beavercreek Walmart Supercenter Sunday night on reports of a possible gas leak, according to officials.
The incident was dispatched around 10:20 p.m. at the store located at 3360 Pentagon Blvd, per initial reports.
The matter was resolved relatively quickly and customers were allowed to re-enter the store once crews finished their investigation.

No word on if this possible gas leak was related to the previous incident.

— A quiet night is expected with temperatures overnight dropping into the lower 30s, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.
Monday: Clouds will increase through the day with highs in the lower to middle 50s. The chance for rain returns in the evening, and with temperatures falling past sunset, a few wet flakes may mix in as well.
Tuesday: The chance for snow is increasing, as more recent model runs are becoming more consistent and are agreeing more on the chance for snow. We’re calling for snow on Tuesday, some of which could be heavy at times. This snow looks to continue into Wednesday as well. Highs will be in the lower 40s early in the morning with most of the day staying in the 30s.
Wednesday: Snow is likely to continue into Wednesday, especially earlier in the day. By the time the snow wraps up, it looks like we’ll see a couple of inches of snow accumulation, however, there is still a lot of time between now and the event, allowing time for the track to change course. This will have a large effect on just how much snow we see. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s for the day.
Thursday: Partly sunny skies are expected with highs in the lower 40s.
Friday: A dry start is expected, but the chance for rain returns at night. Highs will be in the middle 40s.
