Teen gets 9 years in fa­tal shoot­ing


An 18-year-old Trot­wood man who shot and killed his girl­friend in a bed­room at his home will spend the next nine years be­hind bars.

Tyrell Daunte Erby opted not to have a jury trial and was con­victed of reck­less homi­cide last month by a judge in the Feb. 3 death of 20-year-old Tay­lor McKee of Union at his Hor­rell Road home.

Erby pleaded guilty on Aug. 23 to tam­per­ing with ev­i­dence and ob­struct­ing of­fi­cial busi­ness, ac­cord­ing to the Mont­gomery County Pros­e­cu­tor’s Of­fice.

When po­lice re­sponded to Erby’s home, they found McKee in a bed­room, but Erby said she had been shot while walk­ing out­side. He told po­lice he brought her in­side but later ad­mit­ted he shot her in­side the bed­room, pros­e­cu­tors said.

Two women who fled in a car af­ter an al­leged theft at the Englewood Wal­mart re­main on the run af­ter crash­ing the car in Trot­wood, po­lice said.

Englewood po­lice were dis­patched to the Wal­mart at 7725 Hoke Road on Thurs­day morn­ing af­ter em­ploy­ees re­ported a theft in progress, Englewood po­lice Sgt. Mike Lang said.

The theft sus­pects left the store in a ma­roon Pon­tiac sedan, but were quickly pulled over by Englewood po­lice.

The male driver was taken out of the car by po­lice, and while be­ing ques­tioned by of­fi­cers, a woman in the pas­sen­ger seat jumped into the driver’s seat and took off.

Po­lice shortly pur­sued the ve­hi­cle but ter­mi­nated the pur­suit, Lang said.

Af­ter ter­mi­nat­ing the pur­suit, of­fi­cers con­tin­ued to search the area for the ve­hi­cle.

The car was found un­oc­cu­pied, crashed into a ditch, and on fire on Salem Av­enue near Shiloh Springs Road.

The two women, wanted for the theft at Wal­mart, had fled the scene on foot be­fore po­lice ar­rived on scene of the crash.

The two sus­pects re­main on the run, but Lang said po­lice know who they are.

The man first ques­tioned by po­lice dur­ing the traf­fic stop was not in­volved in the theft, but is fac­ing charges stem­ming from pre­vi­ous driv­ing of­fenses.
