Dayton Police officers and medics were dispatched to the 300 block of Superior Avenue around 6:20 p.m. on initial reports of a shooting, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch.

“We had a white SUV with about five people inside go inside the apartment,” Major Brian Johns, Dayton Police, said Monday afternoon. “Shots were exchanged between that group and the people inside the apartment.”

Five people were shot. One died from their injuries. Johns said two of the four injured were in serious condition, but an update released by Dayton police confirmed all four were now in stable condition.

Johns said the person killed in the shooting was the driver of the SUV.

While police are still looking for possible suspects, Johns said they do not believe there is a threat to the public.
