DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A homicide investigation is underway after a man was shot to death in Dayton over the weekend.

On April 7, 2019, 28-year-old Christian Harbison was shot in front of 24 N. Hatfield St. He was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he later died.

Witnesses told police that shortly before the shooting, they saw two verbal and physical altercations in the parking lot behind 3921 W. Third St., just down an alley from where the shooting occurred.

Officials say it is unclear at this time if those altercations are connected to the deadly shooting, or if Harbison was targeted or just an innocent bystander.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Tom Cope at (937) 333-1157 or Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at (937) 222-STOP.
