DAYTON, Ohio — Dion Green will always remember Aug. 4, 2019.
It was the last time he saw his father. Green held him in his arms as he lay bleeding on Fifth Street that night.
Green’s father, Derrick Fudge, was one of nine people shot and killed in the city’s Historic Oregon District in the early morning hours.
“August 4th is one year that I haven’t spoken to my father, one year I haven’t seen him and one year that’s just been hard, but I’m trying to make something positive out of it,” Green said.
Dayton residents will take nine minutes of silence — one minute for each person killed — starting at 8:04 p.m. Tuesday to honor the lives lost in the shooting one year ago.
