Teen’s killer still on the loose


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton teen sitting on a porch was gunned down in cold blood and now police are ready to pay for your tip that tracks down his killer.

It happened in the 500 block of Paul Laurence Dunbar Street in the southern Dayton View neighborhood just after 3:00 pm on July 26.

Davontae Raglin, 18, was sitting on the porch of a home when someone with a high powered rifle appeared and fired 10 to 15 rounds, striking him in the face and arm.

He was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition and died the following night.

Given the weapon used, the time of day and the fact that there’s a school across the street, this one could have been even worse.

“The shooter in this particular incident had no consideration for others even if they were specifically trying to do harm to an individual they certainly didn’t take anyone else into account,” said Sgt. Larry Tolpin, Dayton Police Department.

“We do know an unknown gunman approached from the north on foot and shot him as he was sitting out there.  We’re hoping somebody out there has information about this crime and can let us know who the gunman was or the motive,” said Detective Cayce Cantrell, Dayton Police Department.

Call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867 if you have any information about this crime and remember, you can remain anonymous.
