He was flown on a medical helicopter from Middletown Regional Airport to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. A hospital spokeswoman said Foster is a patient there, but she couldn’t release his condition.

Police were called to an alley between Garfield and Baltimore streets around 10 p.m. Tuesday that three shots were fired in the area.

Foster was found lying on a couch in a home in the 400 block of Young Street. He appeared to have been shot with a small caliber weapon, possibly a .22, the report said.

Maj. Scott Reeve from the Middletown Division of Police said officers are still investigating the shooting and no arrest has been made.
