DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The 18-year-old man questioned in the shooting death of Ronnie Bowers is now indicted on other charges.
In March of this year, Miles Heizer was stopped at the intersection of Wilmington and Woodman Drive in Kettering when he got out of his car and walked up to another car – also at that intersection, the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s office says. With a baseball bat in hand, Heizer is accused of striking a 21-year-old man with the bat, causing him to suffer serious injuries.
The victim’s window was rolled down when Heizer walked up to him, the prosecutor’s office says.
Heizer faces charges of felonious assault. He is expected to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 4.
Bowers was shot as he was leaving AlterFest earlier this month. Police say he was an innocent bystander when he was struck by a bullet in the back of the head. He died at the hospital two days later.
The stray bullet came from two groups of kids who were arguing near AlterFest, police say.
