A 53-year-old man was shot and killed after he forced his way into his ex-girlfriend’s home in Dayton last week.
Daron Orr was pronounced dead at the scene, according to reports from local media. The woman, who has not been publicly identified, was questioned and released.
Police say the woman placed two separate calls to 911 on July 4: The first saying Orr was trying to break in, and the second saying she had shot him. Dayton Police Detective Gregg Gady confirmed that by the time police arrived, Orr had already kicked in the door and gained entry to the woman’s home.
Grady also confirmed the two were previously in a relationship, but not at the time of the shooting. According to neighbors, the couple’s relationship appeared to be a tumultuous one and Orr was often caught acting aggressively towards the woman.
Neighbor Dwayne Berry told reporters he could hear Orr banging loudly on the woman’s door, which she simply ignored. Berry also said Orr would should up at all hours of the night and rev up his engine outside of the woman’s home.
“That’s not normal,” Berry said.
