DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Police are investigating after a person was found shot in Dayton begging for help from a neighbor.

The victim was taken here to Miami Valley. The condition of the victim is not known at this point.

The shooting happened just before 3:00 a.m. Tuesday. near the intersection of Brumbaugh Boulevard and Free Pike in Dayton.

Police say a neighbor who lives in the 3300 block of Brumbaugh called police after someone was beating on his door. That person turned out to be a man who had just been shot on Free Pike according to dispatchers.

The victim came to that neighbor’s door shouting for help and the neighbor called 911 because he was unsure of what was going on.

Police and medics arrived on scene and the victim was rushed to the hospital.

There is no description of a suspect but Montgomery County dispatchers say a white vehicle suspected in the shooting was last seen driving away on Free Pike.
