DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Montgomery County Coroner has identified 27-year-old Anjelica M. Ramey as the woman killed after she reportedly accidentally shot herself in the chest on Pleasant Avenue Monday.
Authorities told 2 NEWS that they received a call around 5 p.m. about a woman who accidentally shot herself in the chest. The victim’s fiance told police the woman was cleaning when she picked up a gun off a couch and it accidentally went off.
When crews arrived the woman was breathing, she also told them it was an accident.
She was taken to the hospital in an unknown condition. The coroner was called at some point and the woman was declared dead — it is unclear whether this was en route or at the hospital.
It’s not known if anyone else was in the home at the time of the shooting.
The incident is still under investigation by the Dayton Police Department.
