Homicide detectives were busy Monday investigating five deaths including a murder-suicide, two shooting deaths and a partially decomposed body found outdoors.
Here are the latest updates on those investigations:
19-year-old shot to death in vehicle
At 8 p.m. Monday, Dayton police officers arrived on the scene of a shooting at North Orchard Avenue to find 19-year-old Dominique Gentry dead in a vehicle. He had been hit by gunfire several times.
Police said Tuesday that they believe the Yukon driven by Gentry may have been boxed in by other vehicles and possibly rammed. An occupant of another vehicle reportedly got out and fired five or six rounds through the windshield of the Yukon striking and killing Gentry. The Yukon then rolled into a fence and a building.
The 19-year-old passenger in the Yukon was not hurt during the shooting.
Detectives are now searching for red or orange vehicle believed to be a Cadillac that could have some collision damage.
Body of female found behind apartment complex
Dayton Police said Tuesday that they are waiting on an autopsy to confirm the identity and cause of death of a female whose body was found in the woods behind the Lakewood apartments on Wilmington Avenue. Homicide detectives were called to investigate the remains, which they said had "been there for quite some time," but the death is not classified as a homicide at this time. Police recovered a purse they believe belonged to the woman, which provided a possible ID.
Man murders girlfriend then hangs himself
Through the overnight hours Sunday into Monday morning, an hours-long police and SWAT standoff on Nordale Avenue ended with a murder-suicide investigation. The coroner was called to the scene around 9:40 a.m. to pick up two bodies, later identified as Heather Bell, 38, and Jordan Rudd, 24.
Initial investigation points to evidence that Bell was killed by Rudd inside of the home before the standoff with police began. Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Bell "suffered a violent death" and Rudd had hanged himself inside the basement of the home.
Man shot in parking lot after leaving club
Homicide detectives were called to the area of South Patterson Boulevard and East 5th Street just after 3:30 a.m. Monday after a victim of a shooting homicide was found in the Arby's parking lot.
The body of Mikeal Harris, 27, was discovered after police patrolling near Club Vex across the street heard shots fired. A large group was gathered in the parking lot of Arby's after leaving the club and police are working to locate a suspect based on witness descriptions.
