Domestic Violence Suspect Shot By Dayton Police

A woman is dead following a shooting involving three Dayton Police Officers.


A statement released by the Dayton Police Department stated officers were responding to a domestic violence call at 12:15 Sunday morning when they encountered 35-year-old KishaArrone.  Police say Arrone was armed and threatening to kill her partner.

Police found Arrone driving a pickup truck on Wexford Avenue and directed her to stop the vehicle. When she refused, officers set up spike strips to puncture the truck’s tires.


The statement goes on to say, "Arrone then exited the truck with the firearm still in hand. She refused the officers commands to drop the gun and fired the gun into the air while walking towards her domestic partner and a group of individuals nearby. In an effort to protect Arrone's domestic partner and other individuals in harm's way, three Dayton Police Officers discharged their weapons to stop Arrone. She suffered fatal injuries during the encounter."


All three officers have been placed on administrative leave while the incident is still under investigation.
