Over 15 Dayton police and Montgomery County Sheriff’s cruisers have escorted a funeral procession for a homicide victim, after a large fight broke out at the Mt. Enon Baptist Church in Dayton.
The fight broke out at the funeral for Jamal D. Colvin who was fatally shot on Burleigh Avenue on July 3.
Police said guns were displayed during the fight but there were no shooting victims.
Officials said during the funeral procession, a vehicle showed up where one occupant displayed a gun. Police pursued the vehicle but later terminated their pursuit without stopping the vehicle.
Officials added they believe the violence today is retaliation for the death of Colvin.
Multiple law enforcement officers, including Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer escorted the procession to Willow View Cemetery on Neff Road. Officials said the escort was conducted to prevent further violence after the fight at the funeral.
UPDATE @ 12 p.m.
Up to 10 Dayton police cruisers remain on scene after a large fight was reported at a funeral Thursday morning.
