DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Four children were inside a Dayton home when shots were fired Monday night.

Investigators said two people confronted a man inside the house at Watervliet and Wayne avenues around 10:00.

The suspects and the man shot at each other and one man was struck.

Police said a bullet went through a heavy bag before glancing off the 22-year-old victim’s stomach.

The children and a woman who were upstairs at the time were not hurt.

Officers are looking into the possibility the incident was drug related.

They said the victim knows the suspects, but is not cooperating with the investigation.
