Police have arrested a 27-year-old man accused of opening fire on police officers Monday night outside Dayton, Ohio.
The whole thing started when Brookville police say they got a call about an incident involving two vehicles on I-70. It’s unclear, however, if it was some sort of chase or some other kind of incident. A crash ensued and one of the suspects involved took off on foot and was later tracked down in a Speedway gas station parking lot.
Shots were exchanged with two officers and one of them was struck in the arm and had to undergo surgery. That officer is reportedly listed in stable condition this morning. An unidentified female was killed during the shootout.
There had apparently been two different SUV’s involved in the crash and someone in one of the vehicles fired shots then fled.
That suspect was reportedly hiding in an RV in Clay Township, where he was found around 6:40 am on Tuesday. Earlier, police were notified of a car ditched in a nearby pond, which matched the OIS suspect’s vehicle.
Conrad Davis was taken into custody without incident after a nine-hour search, police said.
While being hauled off to Montgomery County jail, Davis sobbed and said he was sorry after reporters told him a woman was ‘caught in the crossfire.’
Davis stated he was Pensacola, Florida and told local media that he was heading to NY to do work in construction. He also said the woman who was killed at the gas station was his “significant other.”
The Brookville police chief said this was just the second OIS in the 21 years he has been with the dept. Both officers involved are on paid leave, as the Montgomery County Sheriff’s office continues its investigation.
