There has been no information released about suspects and the Dayton Police told the public to avoid areas blocked off for crime scene tape. The police were still actively searching the area of the shooting after they got there. According to the WHIOTV7 staff, the Dayton Police said, “We had an individual in a vehicle drive through our scene tape and drive up on the officers putting their lives in grave danger. We are actively looking for that vehicle right now but when you see the scene tape and the police lights do not try to drive through that scene”. Like what was said previously there is little information as to who the perpetrators are but they asked that if anyone has any information to call 333-COPS.
