Reinaldo Gomez Taylor, 33, of Dayton was identified Tuesday by Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger as the victim killed in the incident. Taylor died at Miami Valley Hospital minutes after the shooting was reported, according to Harshbarger and dispatch records.

Taylor’s cause and manner of death remain under investigation, Harshbarger said.

Police and medics were called to the Gettysburg Plaza shopping center in the 2100 block of North Gettysburg Avenue around 3:20 a.m. Sunday on reports of a person shot.

“We need an officer right here right now,” one 911 caller said in a call obtained in a News Center 7 public records request. “He got shot! Come get this man! They shot him up.”

“There’s a shooting going on at Gettysburg Plaza. They said somebody is out there dead,” a second caller said.

The shooting happened just hours after an OVI checkpoint was in operation in the same stretch of North Gettysburg Avenue. The checkpoint also resulted in a brief chase after a driver refused to stop for the checkpoint. The driver was later taken into custody after a foot chase involving state troopers.

News Center 7 has reached out to Dayton police for more details in the investigation and we’re awaiting a response.
