OH mass shooting leaves 9 people dead, including gunman

The Oregon District is one of Dayton's 10 historic neighborhoods, while East 5th Street is famous for a number of bars and restaurants.

"The threat was neutralized at approximately 30 seconds of the suspect firing his first shot", Biehl said.

The Dayton killing marked the 251st mass shooting in America since the beginning of 2019. The officers were not injured. Nine people were killed and 26 wounded in that attack before the shooter was killed by police. The motive remained unclear.

Police have said there was nothing in his background to prevent him from buying the firearm he used.

Within seconds, the shooter is brought to his knees by police right before he's able to enter a nightclub that is full of people fleeing from his rampage.

To some, Betts was known as a friendly guy who sometimes stopped for a beer or two at a bar southeast of Dayton in Bellbrook, a short drive from his home.

"We believe he was planning this or something like this for a while", a source close to the investigation tells PEOPLE.


But the writings did not indicate any racial or political motive, sources said.

Assistant Police Chief Matt Carper said any speculation of motive at this point would be premature.

"Dayton does nothing but lift you up and support you, and they do that to every business here in town", she said.

A former cheerleader, the woman said she didn't really know Betts and was surprised when a police officer told her during her freshman year that her name was included on a list of potential targets. "He loved his patients and served them well, with a loving and caring spirit", the statement said.

Biehl said Betts' parents were having a tough time.

The guns had been legally purchased, police said, and there was nothing in Connor Betts' adult criminal background that would have raised concerns - he'd only had traffic tickets for speeding and failure to yield.

Police did not provide information about the Betts siblings' relationship.


"It seems to just defy believability that he would shoot his own sister", Biehl said.

"They are victims, and we're treating that as such - them as victims", he said, according to CNN affiliate WLWT. Addressing reporters in Morristown, New Jersey, the president said Sunday that "we're going to take care" of the problem.

"Everyone was panicking and running around", Hunter said. "And if we did not have police in the Oregon District and the thousands of people in the Oregon District enjoying their Saturday evening, what we could have had in this city". "It's where everyone goes to hang out".

DeWine's predecessor as governor, Republican John Kasich, was unsuccessful in pushing GOP lawmakers a year ago to pass a red-flag bill because it didn't contain due-process protections, Fortney said. "We understand how sad that it is", the governor told the crowd.

"Fran and I are absolutely heartbroken over the awful attack that occurred this morning in Dayton". At least 34 people were killed in total. The 21-year-old suspect in that shooting was arrested.

On July 28, a 19-year-old man wearing tactical gear opened fire at at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, killing three people, including two children. Trump wrote in his first tweet about the Dayton shooting. "What can we learn in the future?'" DeWine said.

"It's a kick in the teeth" to the Bellbrook neighborhood, Howard said.
