Posted by John on 2012/9/6 11:20:00 (438 reads) News by the same author

Just before midnight, Livingston County received a 9-1-1 call from a Dawn resident about a shooting that had just taken place in Dawn. A deputy (Chris Mueller) and a Highway Patrol Trooper responded along with Chillicothe Department of Emergency Services.

Additional officers responded to assist as the initial information was one person most likely had been shot and had fled that immediate area.

Sheriff Steve Cox said preliminary investigation reveals two adults were on the back porch at a home in Dawn and were talking while children were asleep inside the residence.

A man who had previously been in a relationship with the female resident allegedly began driving by the woman’s home and is reported to have previously made threats toward the female. Information was given the suspect stopped and exited his vehicle in front of the female’s home. He was allegedly armed with a high power rifle while yelling toward the residents. Cox said evidence shows at least three shots were discharged into a parked and unoccupied pickup in front of the residence.

Information also was given that additional shot(s) were fired by the suspect in the direction of the two people at the back porch area at which time the male who was on the back porch reports HE fired two shots from a .22 caliber handgun with ONE shot striking the suspect.

The suspect is reported to have fled in a vehicle and went to relatives where he was transported by private vehicle to Chillicothe and was placed in an ambulance after being stopped by the Chillicothe Police. That person has since been flown by air ambulance to another hospital.

Fortunately no other people were injured during this incident. Investigating officers have collected evidence and information as they continue with the investigation throughout the day and Livingston County Prosecuting Attorney Adam Warren will be notified for consideration of criminal charges. No names have been released as of mid-morning Thursday.
