Jury finds man not guilty of August shooting in Trotwood

June 12—A jury on Wednesday found a Dayton man not guilty in a shooting that injured a man in Trotwood last August.

Milton Eugene Bankston, 39, faced two counts of assault in connection with a shooting on Aug. 28, 2023, according to Montgomery County Common Pleas Court records.

Just before 1 a.m., Trotwood police responded to the 200 block of Miller Avenue near Nathanial Street after multiple 911 callers reported hearing at least a dozen gunshots.

One woman reported her brother had been shot and family members took him to Miami Valley Hospital, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center records.

“Someone just ran up to the house and shot up our house,” she said.

The gunshot victim suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, according to Trotwood police.

Bankston was arraigned in Montgomery County Municipal Court – Western Division in October before a grand jury indicted him on December 11.
