DAYTON — A 21-year-old Dayton man on probation for a burglary is accused of shooting at motorists during rush hour earlier this month on U.S. 35 in Dayton.
Micheal J. Blair was indicted today for six counts of felonious assault with a deadly weapon; and one count each of discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises, improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and having weapons under disability for a prior conviction, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.
Witnesses said the shooter was hanging out of a silver Pontiac Grand Prix while firing at passing vehicles May 14 on U.S. 35 W near Liscum Drive.
Multiple vehicles were hit, but there were no reported injuries.
Dayton police determined that the incident stemmed from a dispute between Blair and another individual believed to be inside one of the vehicles.
At the time of the incident, Blair was on probation for a 2016 burglary conviction, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
Blair remains held on $200,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
