Deputies were dispatched around 3:36 p.m. to the 600 block of Infirmary Road in Jefferson Township, Montgomery County Regional dispatchers told News Center 7.

Three people walked up to a person near their car outside the fairgrounds and that person fired shots.

The male shooter described to 911 dispatchers what happened following the incident.

“I was sitting in my car and I was asleep,” the caller told dispatchers in 911 calls obtained by News Center 7. “I had almost three guys with guns run up on me and try to bust my window. So, my first instinct was I grabbed my gun and I shot, I hit one of them I think, I don’t know where they are.”

The three people left the scene and one of them went to the Miami Valley Hospital with unknown injuries.
