A 22-year-old man was taken to Miami Valley Hospital Thursday evening for a gunshot wound to his back.

The man and his friend went to “buy some green,” and the victim was robbed and shot.

The friend said the shooting happened on the west side of Dayton, possibly on Salem Ave. They both then drove to the victim’s parents’ home on McAdams Dr. Deputies were notified when the two were enroute.

Deputies were later advised that the shooting may have happened in Huber Heights.

The victim was in undetermined condition, but was described as “alert” when taken by Bethel Twp. Medics to the hospital.

“We went to buy some green,” said the friend, “and some guy robbed him and shot him.” The victim was shot in the back just to the right of his spine.

Clark County Deputies were sent to the scene at 9:32 p.m., and the friend said that it took them about 20 minutes to get here.

Bethel Medics were advised to stand by until deputies arrived and made sure the scene was safe for them to enter.

The names of the victim and the friend were not yet released.

The incident remains under investigation by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. Huber Heights Police were also dispatched to the McAdams Dr. home in case the incident happened in their jurisdiction.

UPDATE: The scene of the shooting now appears to be in Huber Heights. Their officers were sent to the scene to interview the friend and collect evidence.

 UPDATE: Investigators have determined that the shooting occurred during a home robbery on Schoolgate Rd. in Huber Heights. Huber Police are investigating.
