The arrests were made “as an ancillary part of our investigation. There have been various charges. But none of those charges have been related to this incident.”
One Monday, Sedlak said, authorities executed a search warrant at a Dayton home along with with Dayton and West Carrollton police.
Sedlak declined to comment on how many times Kinser was shot and if police recovered an AK-47. That model of assault rifle was listed in Miamisburg police records, along with “several handguns” in a scene that was described as “blood all over.”
Asked whether drugs were involved in the crime, the police chief said, “We believe there was a motive. But we’re not going to divulge that” now.
“Any time an incident like this occurs in any community or neighborhood, there’s cause for concern,” Sedlak said. “But as far as a belief that this is going to be a beginning of other like incidences, we don’t have reason to believe that that’s the case.”

Sedlak’s comments came during a news conference, the first time Miamisburg police have publicly address questions about Kinser’s death. It came on the same day services were held for the Miamisburg High School senior.
Kinser’s killing is the first Miamisburg homicide since the 2011 death of Lisa Spinks, police said. She was stabbed in the neck and her body was left on railroad tracks in a case that resulted in the convictions of two men, including Spinks’ former boyfriend.
In Kinser’s death, police have “several leads, and we are following them all. But we’re not really focused on one individual or one lead,” Sedlak said.

Sedlak said police believe the suspects intended to rob the apartment at 119 N. First St., where Kinser had been staying.
“We believe that they recognized that he would likely be there,” Sedlak said. “And we think it was a targeted event.”
Police “do have some video from that evening that we’re still evaluating and analyzing,” he said.
Miamisburg police said last week they are seeking two male suspects who fled the scene in a dark sedan after the shooting.
Once inside the apartment, the suspects opened fire, killing Kinser and hospitalizing the female, whose Sedlak said has been treated and released. The assailants fled in the car, police have said.
