WASHINGTON TWP., Ohio (WDTN) - A man hit and killed in an apartment complex parking lot Tuesday evening is being investigated as a homicide, according to the Montgomery County Coroners Office.
Sheriff's deputies responded to Back Bay Court at the Chesapeake Landing Apartments in Washington Township around 6:45 p.m.
Deputies said it appears that an argument led to Willie Wright Jr., 37, being hit by a car driven by Brandon Lewis, 20, of Fairborn.
Lewis fled the scene, but then returned to the complex to talk with investigators.
"Lewis was questioned and then arrested," said Major Daryl Wilson, with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. "We located his car outside his residence in Fairborn, at the corner of Magnolia Court and Kapok Street. We found what is believed to be blood on the car. It was towed for evidence."
Deputies booked Lewis into the Montgomery County Jail on leaving the scene of an accident and tampering with evidence charges. Investigators said its possible more charges will develop in this case.
Investigators couldn't confirm the relationship between Lewis and Wright Jr., but said they have responded to the residence before on reports of fighting.
The investigation is on-going.
