DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – U.S. Marshals are looking for a man convicted for arson and improper discharge of a firearm.
A homeowner’s surveillance video captured the moments when Jordan Gay poured gas on a car and lit it on fire in the 1800 block of Kammer Avenue on March 7, 2019.
Surveillance video shows the suspect, later identified as Gay, walk up to the victim’s truck and begin pouring gasoline down the windshield. Flames erupt shortly after and Gay runs off, all while smoking a cigarette.
The victim comes out of his home a short time later and moves another car in his driveway away from the blaze, and as he does so, prosecutors say Gay drove by and fires shots at the man.
The victim was not injured.
