DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton officers made a call for backup during an incident on Catalpa Drive Tuesday night.
Regional Dispatch tells 2 NEWS an officer responded to the 2500 block just after 9:30 p.m. when their ShotSpotter technology picked up an indication that shots may have been fired in the area.
Police at the scene tell 2 NEWS when they arrived, they found a group of people surrounding a car. The vehicle was searched, and officers discovered fake drugs and a gun inside.
At one point, Regional Dispatch says police were holding some of the people at the scene at gunpoint.
The call for assistance was issued when people in the neighborhood began coming out of their homes and yelling at the officers.
Police canceled the request a short time later and a juvenile was arrested on a charge unrelated to the incident.
No injuries were reported.
