TROTWOOD, Ohio — A veteran Dayton undercover police officer investigating gang activity was involved in a gunfight Saturday morning that left him and a 21-year-old suspect seriously injured.

The wounded officer had been assigned to an FBI task force targeting gangs, gang violence and gang-related drug activity; and Trotwood City Manager Mike Lucking said Trotwood and Dayton police and the FBI were involved in "looking into gang activity" in the area of the shooting.

Late Saturday, there were more questions than answers as top law enforcement officials scrambled to figure out how the shooting happened and why.
