Dayton Police say the shooter was driving by in a vehicle when the shooter started firing shots at Fourth and Jefferson where two people were shot.

A man and woman ran over to Levitt Pavilion where medics and officers found them.

“We were pretty fortunate that nobody had (lost a life),” said Kamaran Afzal, Dayton Chief of Police, in a video released on social media. “There were some injuries. We’re really glad the two victims are going to be okay.”

One of the victims has been released, Dayton Police wrote on social media.

Hershovitz says officers are still trying to determine if this was targeted.

“Officers arrived on scene within seconds,” Lt. Jeffrey Thomas of Dayton Police told News Center 7 Tuesday night. “They were only a block away when the shooting call did come in. The shooting occurred in the street from a passing motorist.

Hershovitz says people who live around the area remain shaken up by what happened Tuesday afternoon.

Bernard Jordan told News Center 7 Tuesday night lives in Downtown Dayton and heard the gunfire.

“I saw police down there and a crowd,” he said. “I saw it roped off, which I thought was strange but down here you always see something strange. This is a nice place, but this is a wonderful place to live. You know, it’s just the surroundings.”

The shooting remains under investigation by Dayton Police.
