XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Police say the man who was shot in Xenia last Thursday is improving at a local hospital.

According to Capt. Alonzo Wilson of the Xenia Police Division, police were called to East Richard Drive Thursday night after neighbors heard multiple gunshots.

Wilson said as soon as police arrived at the scene, they found a male victim lying in the road on Glover Drive suffering from gunshot wounds and then he was taken to Miami Valley Hospital.

The shooter is a man in his 20’s who has been detained and is being questioned but has not been arrested, Wilson added.

Police are still trying to piece together what happened leading up to the shooting.

Neighbors who spoke with 2 NEWS said they saw someone run out of a house and start shooting at someone in the middle of the street.

“This is a quiet neighborhood,” said Thomas Cloud, a neighbor. “This stuff [doesn’t] happen here. I’ve never seen nobody except the people who live here even in that house. So that’s what I don’t understand.”

This shooting is still under investigation and anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Xenia Police.
