Police Believe Shooting Outside P.F. Chang's Was Not Random
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- Police just identified the second victim, who was not seriously hurt, as 46-year-old Damon Thompson from Atlanta, Georgia.
"I actually just witnessed a shooting but I can't tell if the person being shot at was hurt," said a called to 911 dispatcher.
"Apparently there was a shooting outside our store," said a second caller to the 911 dispatcher.
It was a crowded scene outside the P.F. Chang's restaurant Wednesday night at the Dayton Mall as 911 calls flooded the county dispatch center.
"I saw the person using a gun shooting into a car in the Dayton Mall parking lot," said a caller to the dispatcher.
The woman you just heard was too scared to talk to us on camera, but she did say over the phone that she saw it all go down.
"The driver was in the car and the passenger jumped out and ran through the bushes to a parked car in the P.F. Chang's parking lot," said the caller.
"I heard shots firing and all of a sudden he jumps in the truck and they do a u-ey and they pull up right next to me," said the caller.
Miami Township Police Sgt. Jay Phares says his department is investigating and they don't believe the shooting was random. "I don't think that somebody just went up and shot somebody they don't know," Phares said.
"These people met there for a reason," said Sgt. Phares. "We don't know what the reason is that they met. Something happened and somebody got killed."
The Dayton Mall is a popular area for hundreds of shoppers every day.
"Couldn't believe it, it's still hard to believe," said Merle Murnahan.
"You could be sitting there, eating dinner and it comes in and you happen to get up and that's it, that's all it takes," Pam Horstman.
But while the shooting is shocking and disturbing to shoppers, they don't fear for their well-being.
"I do feel safe, I've never not felt safe here," said Horstman.
"I didn't think twice about coming here today after hearing that," said Christy Murnahan.
The second victim has been treated and released from the hospital.
Miami Township Police are still looking for the two suspects in the shooting. If you have any information officers ask you to call them at 937-433-8477 (TIPS).
