EARLIER REPORT (March 9)

Two people have been arrested in the shooting death of a Dayton man outside the K-9 Club in what Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer said was a planned attack.

“They lure him outside. They had a plan,” said Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer. “It was all premeditated.”

Dale Glenn, 30, was arrested at a Miami Twp. apartment Wednesday night and has been booked into jail on suspicion of murder, according to Plummer.

Sources also confirmed Kendal Mabry, 32, was arrested on suspicion of obstructing justice in the case.

Plummer said the two knew the victim, Michael Mays Belton, 29, and the shooting was part of an ongoing dispute between them.

Deputies have responded to the K-9 Club, 5100 Germantown Pike, multiple times in previous years, including for shootings on Christmas morning in 2013 and in December 2011.

“I don’t know how we got to this culture where we have to break out guns every time there’s a dispute,” Plummer said. “It needs to end.”

The club’s owner has been cooperative with deputies in the latest investigation, and Plummer credits the club’s surveillance system with leading investigators to the two suspects.

“The owner right now seems very proactive,” Plummer said. “He seems to be willing to help correct the situation, so we’re going to work with him.”

Plummer said if the violence continues at the club, his office would consider attempting to permanently shut down the location. However, he admits that when one club closes, it often leads to the violence moving to another club.

“It’s a cat and mouse game,” the sheriff said.

Chris Mullins, who lives less than 50 yards from the club, said he heard seven or eight gunshots during the shooting Wednesday and then a couple of cars speeding from the scene.

“The stuff is kind of crazy around here,” Mullins said. “You hear people fighting and arguing over here a lot of times. I’ve heard gunshots before. This ain’t the first time it’s happened. It’s crazy and it needs to stop.”

On the weekends, Mullins said the club is packed and there’s no place to park. He said he’s had patrons ask to park in his driveway.

“It’s too close to home for me and it makes me nervous,” Mullins said. “At first, I was thinking, ‘Let people enjoy a good time and a good night out.’ Now it’s getting ridiculous. It’s really sad. There’s too much violence, for sure.”

Sheriff’s investigators expect to meet with the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday to present a case for the filing of official charges, Plummer said.
