DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man told police someone fired a shot at him and stole his car Tuesday.
The incident happened just after noon Tuesday in the 800 block of St. Agnes Avenue Tuesday.
According to a police report on the incident, a man told police he was sitting in his car on Rossiter Avenue between 12:00 and 12:30 p.m. Tuesday when a red sedan approached.
The man told police someone in the red car fired a shot at him while he was inside his car. He said he immediately got out and ran away, leaving the keys inside the car.
The victim said he saw the red car turn around and someone get out of the vehicle but he kept running. When he returned to the area his white, 2011 Dodge Charger was gone.
