DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A person is in stable but critical condition after an officer-involved shooting in Dayton on Monday night.
The incident took place near Harvard Avenue and Salem Avenue.
Police attempted to make a traffic stop for a blue SUV that was initially reported to be without tags at approximately 9:18 p.m. It was later announced that the license plate was in the rear window of the vehicle and was registered to a woman who was wanted on a warrant.
A man sitting in the passenger seat of the car fled the scene on foot, according to Dayton Police Chief Kamran Afzal. Officers commanded the man to stop and show his hands, but he refused. While running, Afzal said the man pulled out a handgun from his pocket, prompting one of the officers to shoot the suspect.
The officer then immediately began to render aid to the suspect and called medics to the scene. The suspect was then transported to Miami Valley Hospital in critical condition.
The suspect is currently in stable but critical condition. No officers were injured during the incident.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a criminal investigation, while the Professional Standards Bureau runs an internal investigation.
