DAYTON — UPDATE @ 5:45 p.m. (Aug. 12): Dayton police said they don’t believe anyone else is involved in the Aug. 5 shooting of two men at the apartment on South Euclid Avenue that left both of them dead.
“It’s been reported publicly that there was a third person involved these shooting deaths,” Dayton police Sgt. Mike Godsey said Wednesday.
“At this point in the investigation, detectives have no reason to believe there was anyone else involved in the deaths of Chrishawn Perkins and Darryl Guy. Detectives are currently awaiting lab results to confirm these beliefs,” Godsey said.
Darryl Guy Jr., 25 of Dayton, and Chrishawn Perkins, 25, were identified as the victims killed in the shooting in the 1000 block of South Euclid Avenue, Dr. Kent Harshbarger, Montgomery County coroner, said in a media release Aug. 6, the day after the shooting.
Perkins died at the scene while Guy died later at Miami Valley Hospital, Harshbarger said.
Police and medics were called to an apartment building in the 1000 block of South Euclid Avenue just after 10 p.m. on Aug. 5.
Dayton Lt. Steven Bauer said there were other people in the apartment, but he offered no details beyond that.
