DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Detectives are investigating after a man was shot and seriously injured Sunday in the 200 block of Yale Avenue at an apartment complex.

Police tell 2 NEWS they found a male in his mid 20s or early 30s who had been shot several times. He was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

It is unclear what the motive is behind the shooting. The male suspect fled on foot from the area, and police are searching for him.
“This particular residence at times has had some difficulties and so we’ve offered extra attention and so the apartment managers here have sought out police assistance to rid the complex of that sort of thing so we have had collaboration with the apartment owners at various times,” said Lt. Mark Ponichtera with the Dayton Police Department.
Officials say they’re looking for a African American male suspect with a tattoo on his face. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
