Just before 7 p.m., a Dayton Police Detective, who is part of a Drug Enforcement Administration task force, was shot while serving a drug related search warrant in the 1400-block of Ruskin Road.
At this point, the detective is the only person injured and is in critical condition at a local hospital.
There are five people being interviewed in relation to this case.
The Dayton Police Homicide Unit is currently handling the shooting investigation.
The Professional Standards Bureau will handle the administrative investigation related to the Dayton Police Officers who were on scene.
A large amount of suspected fentanyl was found in the house, along with cash and multiple weapons. We still have detectives on scene searching the home and processing evidence.
Today is a very difficult day for the Dayton Police Department and our federal partners.
As we move forward tonight, please keep this officer, his family, our department, the DEA, and the entire community in your thoughts, prayers, and care.
We will provide additional information tomorrow as we learn more.
