XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Police have taken a suspect into custody following a deadly bar fight shooting.
Around 1:30 am, police were called to The Roundtable, a bar on the 300 block of Home Avenue, on reports of shots fired.
Captain Steve Lane with the Xenia Police Division said that two people were leaving the bar when they got into an argument in the parking lot. The altercation escalated, he said, and one of the patrons pulled out a firearm and shot the other. The suspected shooter then got into their car and fled the scene.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim on the ground in the parking lot. Lane said the victim was brought to a local hospital in critical condition. Xenia police have since reported that the victim, 30-year-old Jacob S. Scoby, has died.
Lane said that both people involved were known to The Roundtable and had visited the bar before. It is unknown what events lead up to the argument.
Police said the suspect, 32-year-old Brad A. Stewart has been taken into custody after he was located in the area of Clifton Road. Stewart initially fled from officers in pursuit but eventually stopped in the 2500 block of Wilberforce-Clifton Road and gave himself up.
Stewart will be held at the Greene County Jail on charges of murder, felonious assault and weapons under disability.
