DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Three male suspects are in custody for drug-related offenses.

Authorities say the suspects were being sought after for several days and were tipped off on their location when they checked into the Hawthorn Suites in Miami Township.

A witness told 2NEWS authorities moved in four officers abreast. She works on the ninth floor of the Prestige Plaza building and says she also heard gunshots.

Authorities say officers fired their weapons when the suspects tried using a vehicle as a weapon.

One suspect ran away across I-75. The interstate was shutdown for roughly 15 minutes so law enforcement could arrest the suspect.

A viewer at the Prestige Plaza tells 2 NEWS that the building there was locked from the outside, but were given permission to leave the building at their own discretion.

All suspects have been taken to Montgomery county jail.
