On Monday, December 10, 2018, at 2:13 pm, we received a report of an active shooter at Walmart, 1300 E. Ash St., Piqua. Officers from the Piqua Police Department, Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol, and Troy Police Department responded immediately. Officers worked to secure the scene, determine what happened to cause this report, and secure school facilities in the area.
Based on store surveillance recordings, we were able to determine that all involved parties had left prior to law enforcement’s arrival. A confrontation outside the rear of the store had occurred around 2:12 pm, and one subject fired from a handgun towards another subject leaving the confrontation at a high rate of speed.
