Man reports being shot in 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 are 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.

FIRST REPORT:

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.

We have a crew on the way and will update this report.

Today the air show is running a high show. On Saturday, only a few of the earlier acts couldn’t perform at a high level because of lower clouds.  Benzing learned to fly at a young age and has been flying for over 30 years. The Californian also has a Ph.D. in Chemistry.

Lead pilot of Redline Ken Rieder knew he was going to be a pilot almost his entire life.

He went to his first air show in Waynesville when he was 5 years old.

“My dad was driving up to Columbus for something. We saw it as we were driving by and I was excited, so he pulled in.”

At a young age, Rieder started building model planes, joined the Civil Air Patrol at 12 years old and eventually got his pilot’s license at age 21.

“From there on it was everything I could do to get flying,” Rieder said.

The Dayton Air Show is particular important to Rieder as the first large air show he had ever attended. He said he never imagined he’d be flying in the Dayton Air Show when he was younger.

Now he’s not only flying in the show, but he built the planes he and partner Ron Thocker are flying today. The team will be back later in the show.

Reward offered for missing guest book of Harrison Twp. stabbing victim

Published: Friday, June 22, 2018 @ 1:50 AM

Harrison Twp. family searching for missing guest book

The family of Amber Hoover, who was found with multiple stab wounds behind a Harrison Twp. home last week, are offering a reward for anyone with information on the whereabouts of the guest book that is missing from her funeral.

RELATED: No arrest in fatal stabbing of woman found behind Harrison Twp. home

Hoover, 42, was found stabbed behind a residence on Embury Park Road on June 10, and was pronounced dead at Grandview Medical Center.  The coroner's office ruled the incident a homicide and said Hoover died of multiple stab wounds. 

Hoover’s mother and daughter, who are still mourning the loss, are now focused on finding the missing guest book.

“We absolutely don’t care who has it or why you have it”, said Kelsey Jewett, Hoover’s daughter. “If you have it, we just want it back”.

They are not accusing anyone of stealing the book and are aware it could have simply been misplaced, as there were plenty of visitors at Hoover’s funeral last week. 

“That’s our one last memory to speak of Amber”, said Theresa Jones, Hoover’s mother.

According to a Montgomery County Sheriff's incident report, deputies found two witnesses and a possible suspect when her body was found. 

Sheriff's investigators know who fatally stabbed Hoover, but they have not arrested the person.
