DAYTON — A 21-year-old man was fatally shot in the stomach on Saturday, April 25, during a gathering for another homicide victim at Euclid and Riverview avenues.

According to Lt. Brian Johns, the shooting happened while a large group of people were at an event honoring Thomas Watson who was killed April 16.

A fight broke out during the gathering in an alley and the unidentified victim was shot.

“Approximately 50 to 100 people were here,” said Johns, “and no one saw anything.”

The victim was taken to a Miami Valley Hospital and pronounced dead around
 7:43 p.m.

Police are looking for a male suspect.

Watson’s funeral was Saturday morning. He was fatally shot on a basketball court at College Hill Park near Harvard Boulevard.

“It’s sad, you’re here at a memorial for someone who lost their life tragically and it happens again,” Johns said.

Anyone with information should call 333-COPS.
