DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police found four people shot on Oakridge Avenue late Monday night.

It happened around 11:30 in the 1900 block of Oakridge.

Dayton police say three of the victims were found at one address, the other at a different location on the same street.

Witnesses say they saw the suspect lying in the bed of a black pickup truck. They say he started shooting again as the truck left the area.

All four victims were taken to Miami Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene to launch their investigation. The initial investigation revealed the victims were at 1921 Oakridge Avenue when people in a black, older model pick up truck drove by and began shooting at them. Police say at least two people were in the truck.

“This does not appear to be a random act of violence,” Lt. Wendy Stivers said. “At this point, we believe the males were targeted.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 333-2677 or call Crimestoppers at 222-STOP (7867).
