Officials responded to the 1800 block of Surrey Trail just after midnight and found a male deceased from apparent gunshot wounds in the hallway of the apartment building, according to Sugarcreek Twp. Police Chief Michael Brown. 

As police were arriving on scene, they noticed a black Cadillac leaving the area at high speed. Believing it could possibly be connected to the shooting, authorities pursued the vehicle down Wilmington Pike to I-675.

The pursuit was called off in Dayton. The vehicle was last scene on northbound I-75 from U.S. 35, police said.

A short time later, a man approached officials at the shooting scene and said he had been inside an apartment unit with a woman when the victim began knocking on the door. That man was taken in for questioning as a person of interest.
