Police found a rifle and a satchel near the body, which was on the steps of the Dayton V.A. center's main entrance Friday morning. Bomb squad members detonated the satchel, but there was no immediate information on what was in the bag.
The Montgomery County coroner identifies the man as 27-year-old Jesse Huff. VA center spokeswoman Donna Simmons says Huff was an Army veteran who had been in the emergency room around 1 a.m. Friday and had previously been treated at the center.
Simmons says she cannot release his medical information.
