One dead after shooting at apartments


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – One man was killed in a shooting early Monday morning at the DeSoto Bass Apartment complex.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Michael R. Farrar, 32, of Dayton.

Police weren’t sure initially how many times Farrar was shot or the details surrounding what led up to the shooting.

Officers combing for clues found paper cups littering the area around the shooting leading them to believe there may have been a gathering beforehand.
