DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – One person is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Dayton Thursday night.
Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl says it happened around 8:50 p.m. Thursday in the area of West Third Street and Delphos Avenue.
Officers were responding to a separate call in the area of Kammer Ave. and Anna St. when they noticed a car driving erratically.
They attempted to make a traffic stop several blocks over in an alley, when one of the car’s occupants fled on foot.
A brief foot chase ensued, and Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl says there was a struggle between the suspect and the officer over his taser before shots were fired.
Chief Biehl says the officers rendered first aid to the suspect until medics arrived.
The suspect, a 29-year-old man, was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A firearm with an extended magazine and marijuana were recovered at the scene.
No officers were injured in the incident.
Chief Biehl says an investigation is now underway and more information is expected to be released Friday afternoon.
The identities of the suspect and the officer have not been released.
