HARRISON TOWNSHIP — The man who was shot and killed early on Tuesday morning during an attempted burglary at a cellphone store in Harrison Township has been identified. According to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, Larry Swain, who was 36 years old and from Dayton, Ohio, passed away as a result of the shooting. According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the scene of a gunshot that took place at a Boost Mobile store located in the 3800 block of North Dixie Drive at approximately 1:40 a.m. on Tuesday.
An adult guy and a little girl were seen on surveillance video breaking into a company, according to the findings of an investigation conducted by the sheriff’s office. The caller states that there was an armed robbery at the establishment in the 911 call that was acquired by News Center 7. The person who placed the call reported, “I’ve got an armed robbery, there’s a guy downstairs.” Sheriff Rob Streck told says that detectives have a strong suspicion that the individual who called 911 is an employee of the firm that owns the building with the apartment upstairs.
After opening fire and striking Swain, the investigators are of the opinion that the suspect initially engaged the other person in a verbal confrontation before opening fire and fleeing the scene after the shooting. Swain was the one who took the brunt of his fire. After arriving in Dayton with a younger member of his family, Swain was finally taken to a nearby medical facility from the residence he shared there with the child. Swain was the name of the family member in question.
According to the information provided by the sheriff’s office, he eventually succumbed to his injuries and passed away at some point in the foreseeable future. Streck disclosed to News Center 7 that they plan to collect as much evidence and material as they can find, compile it, and then hand it over to the office of the prosecutor so that it can be evaluated. This plan will be carried out as soon as possible. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is the agency that is now conducting the investigation into the incident that took place.
