The victim, only identified as a man, was shot around 1:30 a.m. but refused help and didn’t call 911, Streck said. The person who called 911 was another person requesting deputies check the welfare of a man who might be injured in the house, investigators said.

The man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his leg and was transported to Miami Valley Hospital Friday afternoon for treatment.

The victim has not been cooperative with investigators, Streck said.

The shooting is not believed to be self-inflicted and shell casings were located inside the house, Streck said.
