TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – Trotwood police are talking with a ‘person of interest’ in a homicide Monday.

Montgomery County deputies picked up Toby Lamb Thursday evening in Harrison Township for a driver’s license violation.

Trotwood investigators want to talk with him about the shooting death of Carl Talley.

Police fell short of calling a Lamb a suspect. They say he is a ‘person of interest’ based on information provided by the victim’s family.

Talley was shot multiple times in the driveway of his home on West Second Street in Trotwood Monday morning.

The family told police about a previous altercation between the two men.

Police say Lamb is out of jail on bond as the investigation moves forward.

“We’re still developing leads, we’re still developing information and at this time our investigation is pointing in a lot of different directions and in order for us to give a definitive statement or impact of what direction this will go is still too early in our investigation,” said Captain John Porter, Trotwood Police Department.
