Victim in deadly shooting identified

Dwayne Marshall mugshot/Montgomery County Jail

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office said the man killed in a Wednesday evening shooting is 26-year-old Dante Jones.

Police were called to the 1200 block of Catalpa Drive just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday after a woman called 911 and said someone shot her boyfriend.

When officers arrived, they found Jones dead from a single gunshot wound.

Police say an argument between family members led to the shooting. Officials say Jones and 29-year-old Dwayne Marshall are believed to be cousins.

Authorities identified Marshall as a suspect in the shooting. He left the scene, but later turned himself into authorities, before being arrested and booked into the jail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
