Sheriff Detectives ask for help identifying possible shooting victim in Harrison Twp.


MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) — The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help finding a victim in a Thursday shooting.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies were involved in a brief chase that ended in a Dayton crash Thursday afternoon.

Deputies were sent to a W. Siebenthaler Avenue and Kleppinger Road after receiving several calls of shots fired in the area of Townhouse Court. Once on scene, a deputy saw a gold car quickly drive away. The car, which contained two people, failed to stop when the deputy attempted to do so.

The deputy then pursued the car in a chase that lasted around four minutes. It ended on Salem Avenue at Delaware Avenue when the driver crashed. Two suspects fled the scene but were apprehended shortly after.

The other suspect is still at large.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said Friday detectives are asking for help from the public identifying a possible victim. Witnesses told detectives a heavyset white female with short, cropped hair, driving a newer white “bubble-style” car may have been the victim of the shooting. The car may have several bullet holes in it.

Anyone who may have seen this vehicle or is aware of the described female involved in this incident is asked to call detectives through the Regional Dispatch Center at 937-225-4357.

This is a developing story and will update it when more information becomes available.
