DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A teenager remains in critical condition after a shooting on Jefferson Street in Dayton.
Investigators say three males waited for the bus at an RTA hub in Dayton and one of the males was shot after they had an argument.
A Dayton Police officer was parked near the RTA hub on Main St. around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday night when he heard a gunshot.
The officer found a 17-year-old who was shot in the head and the victim was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he was reportedly in critical condition.
Officers took one of the males into custody and found a gun at the scene but now they believe the person who is in custody is not the shooter, according to Detective Sergeant Michael Godsey.
