Deputies searching for Harrison Twp. shooting suspect

HARRISON TWP., Ohio (WDTN) — Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies placed a call for backup, and responded to two different scenes Monday night.

According to a press release, deputies responded to the 400 block of Wilbur Avenue, on a reported shooting.

The victim told deputies he had been shot in the hip by a man at the intersection of Springbrook Drive and Merrimack Avenue.

The victim then ran to the Wilbur Avenue address.

He was transported to Grandview Medical Center. Police say the victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies believe the suspect drove away in a dark colored Chevrolet Impala.

Investigators then looked into a shots fired call shorty after that incident near Michigan and Pittsburg Avenues in Harrison Township.

Investigators could be seen collecting evidence near a home, in what appeared to be at least one shot fired at the home.

Deputies laid down at least 35 evidence markers spanning the street, and near that home.

At this point the two investigations are separate, and have not been determined to be connected.
