3rd person dies after shooting in southwest Ohio home

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say another person has died after a shooting that earlier left two dead in southwest Ohio and a suspect in custody.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2aNWQ1W) the third person to die after the shooting at a Dayton home on Wednesday afternoon was 25-year-old Michael D. Cox. Cox was hospitalized in critical condition and died around midnight.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the other victims as 74-year-old Jasper Taylor and 53-year-old Tammy Cox. The relationship between the victims wasn’t immediately clear.

Someone who lives near the home says he heard several gunshots and then saw a man walk outside and speed away in a pickup truck. Police stopped the truck and took the man into custody after a five-minute pursuit.

A police lieutenant says the shooting doesn’t appear to be random.
