DAYTON — UPDATE @ 11:09 (June 26): A 19-year-old is in jail on charges stemming from the wounding of a person in a shots-fired incident following a Dayton vehicle crash Tuesday night.
Anthony Harden was in the Montgomery County Jail on Wednesday night, detained on single unspecified felony and misdemeanor charges. His bail on the misdemeanor is $2,000.
Harden was arrested about 12:20 a.m. Wednesday in the 1600 block of Shaftesbury Road, according to a Dayton police incident report made available Wednesday.
He was in possession of a handgun, according to the incident report.
According to police, four males were taken into custody Tuesday night after witnesses said they heard gunfire from the group as they ran toward College Hill Park, off Harvard Boulevard and Shaftesbury Road, from a vehicle crash several blocks away.
There was no word Wednesday as to whether police would pursue charges against any of the other three males detained in the incident.
INITIAL REPORT (June 25)
Shots fired among a group of men following a vehicle accident in Dayton led to one person being injured and four being taken into custody Tuesday evening.
Police took the four into custody at College Hill Park, off Harvard Boulevard and Shaftesbury Road, and recovered a handgun from one of them, Dayton Sgt. Thomas Schloss said.
According to the preliminary investigation, Schloss said, witnesses told police four males involved in a vehicle accident at Philadelphia and Cornell drives ran from that accident and someone in that group began firing shots as they all ran toward the park, several blocks west of the accident scene. The injured person was reportedly grazed by the gunfire.
Two of the males taken into custody are juveniles, two are adults, he said.
We're working to confirm whether the person grazed in the gunfire has been taken to a hospital.
The vehicle accident was reported just after 8:30 p.m. A second, unrelated vehicle crash occurred at the same intersection just after 9 p.m. No injuries were reported in either accident, according to police.
We will update this report as we learn more.
