DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Two employees were shot while working inside a Dayton mini-mart Tuesday night.

The employees called for help around 10:15 from the Express Mart in the 2000 block of Gettysburg Avenue.

Sgt. Justin Poe said it appears that a man came in and started firing. Two employees were hit. They were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Poe.

The suspect did not appear to steal anything while inside the store.

“It appears very random at this point. We’re not sure exactly on a motive. Certainly that is what we’re looking for in this,” said Sgt. Poe.

The shooter was dressed in black with his face covered. He was last seen running from the scene.

Police are looking at surveillance video in hope of identifying him.
