Dayton Mall

Montgomery County prosecutors have charged a 16-year-old for his connection with the attempted robbery of a shopper and the fatal shooting of another teenager.

Two teenagers who were with a 16-year-old boy who was shot by an adult outside the Dayton Mall last month have been charged with his death. The shooter has been cleared on the basis of self defense.

The Miami Township Police Department says 16-year-old Jawaad Jabbar attempted to steal a pair of shoes from a man with a concealed carry permit on Dec. 20. The permit holder took out his gun and shot Jabbar once. He died later in the hospital. The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office says the shooter will not be charged and his name hasn’t been released.

A recent drug bust at an auto detail shop was the latest in a series of actions near the Dayton Mall. The Dayton Daily News reports several arrests of suspected drug dealers in the past month.

Authorities say the heavily traveled area with many parking lots gives drug dealers opportunities for quick, car-to-car sales.
