DAYTON — A Central State University student-athlete was shot and killed early Friday morning inside a downtown club.
Kordero D. Hunter, who turned 21 on Sept. 9, was a defensive back on the CSU football team. Hunter was from South Holland, Ill., according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.
Police were called to the club at 1:42 a.m., according to Dayton Police Sgt. Moises Perez of the homicide division.
Detectives believe they have identified the shooter, and officers still were searching for him as of 8:30 a.m.
A preliminary investigation suggests the shooting was a result of an argument that occurred inside the club, 212 S. Ludlow St.. The owner escorted some of the people involved in the argument outside of the club. That’s when someone witnessed a woman handing a handgun over to a man who had been escorted out of the club.
Detectives believe that man then shot at least three rounds into the glass window of the club. Two men were struck with gunfire. One was hit in the chest and the other was hit in the neck. Both victims were taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where Hunter, who was struck in the chest, died in the emergency room, Perez said.
Two women also were taken to Miami Valley Hospital, one being treated for glass cuts on her hand and arm, the other being treated for being trampled on. At least one other woman went to a hospital in Greene County after she was having some breathing problems.
The suspect fled in an unknown direction.
Minutes after police were called to A-List, they received another shooting call for an incident on Jefferson Street.
Police believe that shooting was the result of an argument inside Hammerjax-Dayton, 111 E. Fourth St., Perez said.
One person was shot in the leg and had some broken bones. However, the victim’s injuries were considered non-life threatening.
