Police investigate 2nd Dayton shooting in matter of hours

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A man is still in critical condition after a shooting in a Dayton neighborhood.

Police were called to the 1300 block of Wesleyan Road, between Princeton Dr. and W. Riverview Ave. at 2:00 am on reports of a shooting.

According to Detective Sergeant Michael Godsey, the man who lived at the house had an argument with another man after women were invited to the house. Sergeant Godsey also said there was a knock at the house after the women were forced to leave and when the door opened the victim was shot.

When officers arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound. The victim was taken to Miami Valley Hospital.

Police say the suspect is a man with dreadlocks, wearing a hoodie and shorts.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene, and began investigating both inside and outside the house.

This was the second shooting in Dayton in less than three hours. A teen is also in critical condition after being shot in the head in downtown Dayton on Wednesday night.

Both shootings remain under investigation.
