DAYTON — The man accused of killing a Setters Volleyball Club security guard in an attack after a fight broke out in the club’s parking lot Friday night had his bond set at $1 million.
Antonio Fountain, 36, is charged with murder and felonious assault to the death of Ronnie J. Brown.
Police reviewed surveillance video to identify Fountain, Dayton Police Maj. Brian Johns said.
“They just knocked one of my employees out with a club,” a 911 caller said. “He’s in a coma he didn’t respond.”
Police and medics responded to the club at 1008 Gateway Drive around 9 p.m. Friday. Police later determined the security guard was punched and not hit with a club as the 911 caller reported.
Maj. Brian Johns said the incident is believed to have started when a group of ATVs showed up at the business and began doing donuts in the parking lot.
“This crime was totally senseless and totally unnecessary,” Johns said.
“We have like 15 people that are abusing our volleyball people,” the 911 caller said. “They are here assaulting people.”
When they arrived on the scene, Dayton Police said officers found Brown suffering from injuries from an apparent assault.
Brown, 60, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he died from his injuries on Sunday, the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office confirmed to News Center 7.
Police said Brown was a security guard at the business.
Detectives from the Homicide Unit are investigating the incident.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det. Woody at (937)-333-1124. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at (937)-222-7867.
