*Correction-the companion of the shooter’s sister was wounded in the shooting but was not killed as previously reported.
There are more questions than answers in the case of a mass shooting overnight in Dayton, Ohio.
Connor Betts, 24-years old of Bellbrook, Ohio was identified as the Oregon District shooter in Dayton who injured dozens of people and took nine innocent lives…including his sister’s life:
According to Daily Beast, Betts’ sister, Megan, 22, and an unidentified male “were found shot” near the mass shooting scene. Betts arrived in the Oregon District with his sister and her “companion,” before the shooting, police said. At some point, prior to the shooting, they separated. Betts’ sister was not the first victim of the shooting but was one of the initial victims. Police have not said if he was targeting his sister. *Her companion was wounded, but not killed, and has talked to police, authorities said.
Betts tried to get into a local bar in downtown Dayton, Ohio called Ned Peppers but was denied entry. He shot people on the sidewalk and in the street until police arrived approximately one minute later. He was shot and killed by responding police officers at the scene.
