Officers named Michael J. Prater as a suspect Thursday afternoon.
One of the 911 callers told police he had been shot.
“Multiple gunshot injuries. I have been shot in the knee,” the caller said.
Another 911 caller described what he heard and the chaos that followed.
“I just heard a lot of revving going an after I heard about 6 to 7 shots,” the caller said. “I heard pow pow pow.”
Huber Heights police Lt. Matt Dulaney said the investigation so far reveals the shooter fired multiple times into a crowd that was listening to a live band outside the tavern. The gunfire erupted following some kind of disturbance, he said.
“There will be a lot of people to interview,” he said.
Dayton police also responded, helping with the investigation. A K-9 unit was on scene as well, looking for evidence in a grassy area near the business as well as on the property where the band had been performing.
