    Police unsure why Ronald Peters was in Dayton

    Dayton Daily News


    Ronald Peters, best known as Pete Rose's former bookie, was shot in the head Sunday in Dayton



    Peters was in serious condition at an area hospital. Police said Monday they did not have any suspects in the shooting and don't know why he was shot.

    Police were called to the 1600 block of Gilsey Avenue about 2:50 p.m., where they found two sisters tending to Peters, 47, who was lying on the ground in a grocery story parking lot, next to his Ford Thunderbird, police said.

    The sisters were leaving church when they saw Peters standing near his car, then saw him collapse, police said.

    One of the sisters held towels against Peters' wound while the other, who has nursing training, maintained the man's vital signs until paramedics arrived, the report said.

    Peters lives in Franklin. He suffered a gunshot wound behind his left ear. He told paramedics he had been shot, but provided no further information.

    A security guard for a nearby church told police he heard two shots, then saw another man get out of the Thunderbird and run.

    The guard then heard someone yelling for help, police said.

    Detectives had not been able to interview Peters because of his medical condition, Sgt. Gary White said Monday.

    In 1989, Peters agreed to a plea bargain and was convicted and sentenced to 24 months in prison on federal charges of cocaine distribution and making a false statement on his 1985 income tax return.

    Peters also gave testimony to Major League Baseball and to federal investigators concerning Rose's gambling and claimed to have taken bets from the former Cincinnati Reds all-star and manager exceeding $1 million during a two-year period. At the time, Peters owned Jonathan's Cafe, a bar in downtown Franklin in northern Warren County. It has since been razed.

    In 2001, Peters was sentenced to six months in prison for owing $39,000 in dependent support. He previously served a year in prison, from April 1998 to March 1999, for a theft conviction, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

    No kidding. I've been over there once, to attend a funeral at the VA Cemetary, and I don't plan on going back anytime soon. People I went to school with complained that Columbus had some ghettos, but I'd more readily walk through any part of Columbus with a briefcase full of cash than I would drive my car through West Dayton.

    My friends and I in high school thought it would be funny to try and get some malt liquor over there but we quickly learned that a bunch of kids from Oakwood shouldn't drive around in BMW in those parts.

    A friend of mine's dad was telling me about a Dayton PD homicide detective he had a conversation with. The detective told him that he moved to Dayton from Chicago, where he worked homicide on the West Side because he wanted more action! Asked if he got it, the detective replied that West Dayton was way worse than Chicago!
    The worst ghetto I have ever seen-I have never taken a true tour of West Dayton-3rd street/Salem Ave. is the closest I have ever had occasion to go-is Overtown in Miami. Junkie hotels, needles on the ground, AIDS clinics, it was amazing how bad it was.

    The worst I've ever seen is E. St. Louis, IL. I've been there and I've been to Detroit, and it's no contest. I'm not very well traveled, but if there's a place in America worse off than E. St. Louis, I'd hate to see it. West Dayton, I'd say is just as bad as Detroit, but Detroit of course has them beat on size.

    Pete Rose's bookie was shot? So, what kind of odds are the doctors giving him?

    3/1 if you parlay it with Rose being admitted into the hall of fame

    I also thought of adding, Want to bet they don't catch the shooter?

    Sad to see so many Ohio cities in the least safest places to live list.
    It has been a long time since I have been to Dayton, I never realized how bad it has become.:(

    Youngstown (or Yompton as we used to call it) is slipping... only the third most dangerous city in Ohio? The mob must be getting "cleaner".

    That tells me all I need to know about this neighborhood.

    BitB,

    My fiancee is from outside of Y-town, and they still call it that. Also, a lot of them call Youngstown St. "UCLA- University on the Corner of Lincoln Avenue". I thought that was pretty funny. To represent Cleveland, anyone been to Hough lately?

    If you stay away from the West Side, Dayton is very nice, very safe area in which to live. The East Side has trouble, but you need to go looking for it, it/they-redneck coke dealers-will not come up after you out of the blue. We should start to see some improvement at Belmont HS-the only HS left in East Dayton now that bussing has been ended and the schools are back to being neighborhood schools.
