DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Police have confirmed that a suspect in connection with the shooting on US-35 Monday has turned himself in.
Tuesday afternoon, Dayton Police confirmed they had identified a person of interest in Monday afternoon’s shooting that hit at least three vehicles travelling on U.S. 35.
In a statment from Lt. Jason Hall, they said law enforcement officers were actively working to locate and apprehend this individual.
They add, after interviewing witnesses, all indications are that this incident stemmed from a dispute and was not random
On Monday afternoon, multiple 911 calls came in from drivers who were near the intersection of Liscum Ave. and U.S. 35 who said they heard gunshots, and at least three cars reported bullet holes in their vehicles.
Some witnesses detailed a young man wearing a black sweatshirt, hanging out of a driver’s side window of a small silver or gold car.
They said he was firing multiple shots at a car in front of him with what looked like a rifle.
One man who had two bullet holes in his car, said hearing that it was a targeted attack from Dayton Police did not comfort him.
He said he recently moved here, and seeing this violence play out on a highway, putting everyone in danger, worries him and makes him fearful of driving.
“I’m sure I’m going to be looking around a little bit more,” said Ricky Schoonover. “And I’m worried because I have family that travels that road, I have a mother out here.”
2 NEWS reached out to ODOT, who said they did not have any traffic camera footage of the incident.
We also reached out to a local Catholic Church for any surveillance video and are waiting to hear back.
