DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A Dayton police officer was involved in a shooting in Tuesday afternoon after a robbery attempt on the city's north side.
Police were tipped by a customer who walked into the North Main Street Super Duper store and saw an armed robbery in progress.
Uniformed and undercover officers, along with sheriff's deputies, surrounded the building. When the suspect tried to escape through the back door, a foot chase started.
During the chase, police said the suspect looked back and pointed a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol he had duct taped to his hand at one of the officers, and that officer fired one shot, missing the suspect.
Shortly after the shot was fired, the suspect was caught at 49 Pointview Avenue.
Police have not identified the 30-year-old suspect, who faces charges of felonious assault and aggravated robbery.
Investigators told 2 NEWS the officer that fired the shot was working in plain clothes with the SoFast Task Force. He was wearing a tactical vest marked with "police" across the chest and back.
He will be put on paid administrative leave while the investigation proceeds. His name has not been released.
