DAYTON — UPDATE @ 6:10 p.m.:
The victim of the shooting that occurred at Oxford and Windsor Avenues is currently at an unknown hospital being treated for non-life threatening injuries, said Sgt. Creigee S. Coleman.
The victim was walking down the street on a sidewalk when another man came up to him, pulled out a handgun, and shot him for some unknown reason. Witnesses say they heard a gunshot, but didn’t see anyone run away or drive off.
Crews found shell cases in the street, and Crime Scene Investigators were on scene recovering those shell casings. They hope to tie the casings to a handgun, and with that information, hopefully detectives can determine who the handgun belongs to.
“We are hoping anyone who knows anything or saw this incident can call the Dayton Police Department (937-333-2677) or the regional dispatch center (937-225-4357) and please give us some information so we can bring this crime to a closure,” said Sgt. Coleman.
A man said he was shot in the leg, but he didn’t see anyone around him in Dayton Sunday.
The man called police while in the 700 block of Oxford Avenue around 3:30 p.m. but said the incident occurred on Lexington Avenue at Windsor Avenue, said regional dispatchers.
Police do have a suspect that is described as a male in his early 20s, weighs about 140 pounds, and was wearing a black t-shirt and shorts, according to regional dispatchers.
Medics are on scene.

Hundreds of Republican supporters spent an afternoon Sunday listening to optimistic speeches at the annual Ice Cream Social that Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine and his wife Fran hosted at their home near Cedarville.
DeWine’s event brought nearly all the Ohio GOP statewide candidates; Senate candidate U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Wadsworth, did not attend because he had a conflict, organizers said.
DeWine told the hundreds in attendance that he was smart to ask Secretary of State Jon Husted to become his running-mate during the Republican primary, leaving him to face just the withering fire from the primary campaign of Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor. GOP voters selected DeWine over Taylor, and he and Democratic candidate Richard Cordray face each other in November.
“The politics of (joining with Husted) make a lot of sense, he said. “I don’t think I have to explain that to anybody. Instead of a bruising, horrible primary, the two of us were together — and we still had a bruising, horrible primary.”
A common theme among candidates who spoke Sunday was the fight against the opioid epidemic. Ohio Rep. Robert Sprague, R-Findlay, the GOP candidate for secretary of state, said DeWine was the right candidate to lead the fight against opioid addiction.
“We have become ground zero for the opioid epidemic,” Sprague said. “Mike DeWine is going to make us ground zero for the solution.”
DeWine’s campaign calls for a 12-step “Recovery Ohio” plan that would implement early drug prevention education in Ohio schools, expand efforts to reduce drug and cash flows from cartels and increase drug addiction treatment programs.
“We will make a difference every day,” DeWine said.
U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, whose seat is not up for election, rallied the crowd to be active this campaign season.
“The pundits may be wrong; the blue wave might not come to Ohio,” Portman said. “The only blue wave coming here is going to be a blue wave of those blue DeWine t-shirts.”
