UPDATE: Police Identify Man Shot at Dayton VA
DAYTON -- The Dayton VA campus will remain on lockdown until further notice as police investigate a shooting this afternoon.
Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl says the shooting suspect, Neil Moore, is a retired employee at the VA. He reportedly worked in its housekeeping department.
Biehl say one person was injured about 12:10 p.m. Monday. Paul Burnside, 61, sustained a gunshot wound to an ankle. His injury is not considered life-threatening.
Burnside struggled with Moore over the revolver he was carrying, Biehl said.
Moore was taken into custody at Good Samaritan Hospital, where he was seeking a psychological evaluation.
Biehl says at least three people witnessed the incident, but he did not provide details about exactly what they saw.
According to VA Medical Center Director Glenn Costie, the shooting happened in a break room in the basement of the VA hospital.
Officials don't believe there are any other injuries but first responders are going room-to-room to make sure. The VA will remain closed to visitors until that process is completed.
Patients already in the hospital are continuing to receive care. They can be contacted through their room phone or the hospital switchboard at 937-268-6511.
The Dayton VA is not currently accepting new patients while the investigating is ongoing. Veteran needing emergency treatment are being advised to call 911 or visit a local hospital emergency room.
Community based outpatient clinics in Springfield, Middletown and Richmond, Ind., are reporting normal hours for today.
Biehl says the response to the shooting included several area agencies, including Dayton police, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Five River MetroParks rangers, FBI agents and VA police.
