DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Montgomery County Coroner has identified Wayne Bowman, 57, as the person killed in a Dayton shooting Sunday night.

The Dayton Police Department said the shooting happened on the 100 block of Xenia Avenue near South Keowee Street around 11 p.m.

When crews arrived, they found Bowman lying in the middle of the street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but later died according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Since then, the person responsible for the shooting reached out to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch and identified himself.

The initial investigation has determined that Bowman was shot after he blocked the man who shot him in with his vehicle on Xenia Avenue. The victim exited his car and proceeded to strike the man’s vehicle while attempting to open the driver’s side door.

Police said the man then shot a handgun, striking Bowman and later killing him.

Allegedly, the incident stems from a longstanding domestic dispute. The details of this investigation have been shared with the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office for consideration of charges.
