DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The standoff on Superior Avenue has ended after a naked man climbed down from the roof of a Dayton home and into police custody Tuesday.
The incident began late around 10:50 a.m. Tuesday morning in the 1200 block of Superior Avenue in Dayton. Dayton Police and hostage negotiators are on the scene. Superior Avenue is blocked by police tape at N. Euclid Avenue and Kumler Avenue.
Lt. Matt Beavers, of the Dayton Police Department, said they were tipped off about a wanted man by the FBI. Unmarked officers began patrolling the area and found him at a house on Superior Avenue.
Once uniformed police officers arrived at the scene, the man fled into a house and officers gave chase. When they approached the porch, Beavers said a dog lunged at the officers and that one of them fired a single shot at the dog.
The man has multiple violent felony warrants against him in Minnesota and several misdemeanor warrants in the Dayton area.
Witnesses at the scene told 2 NEWS the man may be upset because his dog was shot. The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center removed the dog from the scene and witnesses say the dog will be okay.
Mental health professionals, family members and first responders were able to coerce the man into climbing down the ladder of a fire truck. He is now in police custody and is being taken to a nearby hospital.
