TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) — Three men are in serious condition after a shooting at a house in Trotwood.

Police responded to a shooting call in the 100 block of Olive Road, near Carmin Avenue, just after 1:30 am Friday.

When officers arrived, they found three men and one child shot inside a house.

The three men were taken to Miami Valley Hospital. All three underwent surgery.

The child was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital. Police say the child suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police believe the victims know the person who shot them.

Chief Erik Wilson says it appears someone came to the house. Once that person was inside, a fight broke out, and shots were fired.

Police haven’t released any suspect information yet.

Wilson says there were other people inside the house at the time of the shooting. Those witnesses are cooperating with the investigation.

Police say other people on the block didn’t hear the shooting because it happened inside the house. The call for police came after one of the victims ran to a nearby house for help.

Wilson says police have been to the house where the shooting happened several times before. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
