BREAKING: Dayton Detective Shot During DEA Raid

A Dayton police detective was shot while serving a drug-related warrant with a DEA Task Force on Monday evening.

Dayton, OH – A Dayton police detective on a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Task Force was shot during a raid in northwest Dayton on Monday evening.

The shooting occurred just before 7 p.m. as task force members were serving a drug-related warrant in the 1400-block of Ruskin Road, WHIO reported.

“We’re serving a warrant with the DEA. We need a medic,” an officer told a 911 dispatcher, according to WHIO.

Other officers on the scene loaded the wounded officer into a police vehicle and drove him to Grandview Medical Center for treatment because it was faster than waiting for an ambulance, according to radio traffic during the incident.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl did not release the name of the wounded detective at a press conference late Monday night but sources told WHIO that he has decades of experience on the police force.

Chief Biehl told reporters that the detective is in critical condition and asked the community for prayers.

Police took five suspects who were inside the home at the time of the incident into custody.

The chief said all five suspects were being interviewed and would likely face multiple felony charges.

He said that a large amount of suspected fentanyl, as well as cash and weapons, had been recovered from the scene.

Dayton police and Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers have Ruskin Road shut down until further notice.

Hope for quick recovery! Do they have SWAT Medics on the team...if not, why not. Armed forces always have medics when they go into battle.

EVERYTIME a L.E.O.(s ) take a shot by a PUKE , a PUKE SHOULD BE SHOT be it a single round or multiple rounds. The PUKE should be in the same condition as the L.E.O. ( s ). And the medical expenses can be deducted from the State Prison Operations budget. Convicts need Leg irons and mops / brooms. NOT T.V.'s , weight rooms , recreational Privileges.

My younger brother, a former Dayton Police Detective, is now retired. It may be selfish of me, but I (along with my whole family) am very happy he is no longer on active duty.

Many thoughts and prayers go out to the injured officer and his family. Also, prayers for the DPD community.

I hope the officer makes a full recovery and also hope the DEA stays on the streets and out of our doctor's offices.

Police shouldn't be doing medical transports unless they do them for everybody.

Also: friendly fire?
