Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was indicted for charges related to a hit-and-run that has left a minor on life support.

On Saturday, January 26, 2019, a female approached the window at the All in One gas station on foot while leaving her car running.

Two juveniles then approached on foot. One of them jumped into the female’s car and backed out of the parking lot.

While this was happening, 39-year-old Michael Harrison arrived in a separate vehicle and fired a gun multiple times at the minor in the stolen car while also firing shots into a nearby house.

The second juvenile took off running.

Harrison got back into his car and took off from the gas station, ultimately running over the juvenile in a nearby field, causing life-threatening injuries.

Harrison was indicted Tuesday on the following charges:

  • 2 counts of felonious assault with a deadly weapon
  • 1 count of felonious assault with intent to cause serious harm
  • 1 count of improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation
  • 3 counts of tampering with evidence
  • 3 counts of having a weapon under disability with prior offense of violence
  • 1 count of having a weapon under disability with prior drug conviction

The felonious assault and improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation charges all carry repeat violent offender specifications.

Six of the above charges also carry three-year firearm specifications.

Harrison will be arraigned on February 7, 2019 at 8:30 a.m.
