DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A Montgomery County grand jury has indicted a man in the Sept. 3 shooting that is believed to have been triggered by road rage.
County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr., announced that a grand jury returned the following indictments on Douglas Sutton, 56, in the death of Gary Bailey, 22:
- 2 counts of murder
- 2 counts of felonious assault
- 1 count of discharging a firearm over a highway or roadway
The murder and felonious assault charges carry 3- to 5-year firearm specifications on each count.
The shooting happened at the intersection of Needmore Road and Webster Street. Authorities responded to several 911 calls and found Bailey dead in his vehicle.
The suspect allegedly shot the victim then took off. After a search across several communities, authorities took Sutton into custody at a Fairborn motel Sunday night.
“This tragedy serves as a reminder of the senselessness of road rage,” said Heck. “Road rage incidents can certainly escalate quickly, as you can see here.
“This defendant, as with most road-rage participants, is simply a bully.”
Sutton remains in the Montgomery County Jail on a $1 million bond.
