Dayton police are investigating a possible robbery at a local restaurant

Shots were fired during a robbery reported at Falb’s Restaurant on Kiser Street in Dayton for the second time at the business since 2000 Tuesday morning, dispatch records show.

Officers responded to the business around 10:30 a.m. on a report of a robbery, according to records.

Someone inside the restaurant fired shots at the suspect, records show.

GREENE COUNTY: Shots fired during burglary, suspect charged

A 911 caller told police he was coming to work at the restaurant and his brother was chasing the suspect and firing shots at him.

“He came into our business and robbed our business,” the caller said.  “(My brother) came out and he was shooting at him when he came out.”

The caller said the suspect fled down a nearby alley.

The suspect Tuesday got away and police are still searching for them, according to dispatch records.

No injuries were reported and one other person was in the restaurant at the time of the robbery, the caller told police.

A similar incident was reported at the business in June 2000, when the owner of the business shot at three men, killing one and injuring at least one other, as they fled his business following a robbery.

In that case, the robbers converged on the owner after ordering food and took him to a back room, where they emptied a safe, police said.  The robbers in that case also emptied the cash register.

As the robbers fled in 2000, one of the men pointed a gun at the owner, which caused the owner to fire several shots.

Police have not confirmed if the shots fired Tuesday were fired by the same man from the 2000 robbery.

Air Pollution Advisory continues today for smog

Published: Thursday, June 14, 2018 @ 3:40 PM
Updated: Monday, June 18, 2018 @ 1:08 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini talks about what this is and who is at risk!

An Air Pollution Advisory for smog remains in effect today for Butler, Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery and Warren counties.

RELATED: Cloudy with a chance of podcast

Temperatures are expected to be in the lower to middle 90s, with sunshine and light to moderate south/southwest winds, which are conducive for high levels of ground-level ozone, or smog, and may lead to elevated air pollution levels.

RELATED: Temps, heat index values to rise this weekend 

The Air Quality Index reading is anticipated to be approximately 115 on Monday. It was 108 on Saturday and 112 on Sunday.

Any reading of 101 or higher is deemed “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” according to The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, in conjunction with the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency, which issued the announcement Thursday. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency also issued an alert.

RELATED: The UV index explained

Children, the elderly, and people with respiratory diseases should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion. It’s OK to be active outside, but take more breaks and do less strenuous activities. Symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, or unusual fatigue may indicate a serious problem.

Residents should contact their health care provider if any of these symptoms occur. The general public is not likely to be affected.

Ground-level ozone (smog) is an irritant to the respiratory system formed when bright sunlight mixes with emissions from vehicles and small gasoline-powered engines. These emissions collect in a stagnant air mass and form smog. 

RELATED: 5-day forecast

To reduce smog, especially on days when these notices are issued, residents are encouraged to do the following: 

AVOID DRIVING IF POSSIBLE. Carpool, vanpool or take the bus. Vehicle emissions cause almost 50 percent of ground-level ozone. Walk or ride a bike for short trips. 

REFUEL YOUR VEHICLE ONLY AFTER 8 P.M.: If you can avoid it, don’t refuel when air pollution advisories have been issued. Vapors from gasoline contribute to the smog problem. 

COMBINE ERRANDS if you have to drive or delay them until the advisory is lifted. 

LIMIT YOUR USE of small gasoline-powered equipment such as lawn mowers.
