Wearing a mask, bulletproof vest, and hearing protection an armed man walked into a popular nightlife, that is located in the city’s historic Oregon’s District, and began to fire. Connor Betts, 24, fired dozens of shots, leaving nine people dead and many injured. According to CNN , the motive is unclear to Bett’s actions.

Firing a .223 caliber high-capacity rifle with 100 round drum magazine, officers who were patrolling the area heard the gun shots and saw a large crowd running away. 

Quoted from the Dayton Police Chief, Chief Richard Biehl

“The officers immediately advanced toward the gunfire and within approximately 20 seconds, they engaged the suspect, who was actively firing and attempting to enter a crowded liquor establishments” 

The chief went on to say that the shooting was neutralized at approximately 30 seconds after the first shot. The rifle used for the shooting has been recovered. Police are now trying to see where were the shooter’s whereabouts after arriving earlier that night with his sister and a male companion, and then ended up splitting from the two. 

Biehl said that Betts shot both his sister and the male companion, leaving his sister dead and the male injured. 

According to CNN “Everyone was panicking and running around .. after the shooter was dead, everyone was just crying and stuff” said Hunter

There has been two deadly shooting in less than 24 hours. One in Dayton, Ohio & El Paso, Texas.
