UPDATE: Park Shooting Victim Identified

DAYTON -- The Montgomery County Coroner's Office has identified the man shot and killed at a Dayton park as Aaron Smith, 28. 

We have learned that Smith was shot over a disputed basketball game at College Hills Park. 

His family tells us he had bet on the game, but wasn't playing. 

There were nearly 100 people at the park Tuesday evening when Smith was shot. 

Dayton Police Lieutenant Wendy Stiver would not comment if they had a suspect description. 

The department says their homicide detectives are still talking and identifying witnesses. 

Corey Smith, Aaron's older cousin, says he thought the shooting was an April Fool's joke until he went to the park himself. 

Smith says Aaron was a father of two and loved his family. 

His cousin only wishes Aaron would have walked away.   

A vigil is planned for Saturday at 6:45 p.m. at the park.

Fatal Shooting Occurs at a Dayton Park

DAYTON -- One man is dead after a shooting at College Hill Park in West Dayton.

Dayton Police say it all started before 7:00 Tuesday evening when 75-100 people were in the park. Several people were playing basketball and at some point an argument broke out and multiple shots were fired.

The victim is a black man in his mid to late 20s. His body was found on the basketball court with multiple gunshot wounds.

Homicide investigators have interviewed witnesses but are getting several different stories.

"We've had conflicting information about suspect and vehicle so until we can shore that up, it's not appropriate to give out something we don't have enough information on," says Lt. Mark Ponichtera.

No one else was injured in the shooting and police have not identified the victim or a possible suspect description.



Earlier coverage:

DAYTON -- Officers are on the scene a homicide that occurred at a park in the 1600-block of Shaftesbury Road. 

According to the initial call from dispatchers, the shooting at College Hill Park occurred just before 7 p.m.  The victim was shot on the basketball court, and we're told 75-100 people were in the park at the time.

It is unknown if any suspects are in custody.  The identity of the victim also remains unknown, although officers believe he in his 20s.

One officer also sustained injuries on his way to the scene when his vehicle was struck broadside by another vehicle at Gettysburg Avenue and James H. McGee Boulevard.  The injuries from that crash are said to be minor. 

We will continue to keep you updated as more details become available.
