Vigil brings together Dayton, Ohio, after 9 killed in mass shooting

Vigil brings together Dayton, Ohio, after 9 killed in mass shooting

  • Nine people were killed and 27 others injured early Sunday. The gunman was shot dead by police, 
  • the chief said.
  • The shooter was identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, of Bellbrook, Ohio. He did not have a record with police.
  • Betts used an assault-style rifle, a .223 caliber weapon with high capacity magazines and wore body armor and a mask during the shooting, authorities said.
  • Multiple law enforcement officials told CBS News there is no hate crime nexus yet in the Dayton shooting, which occurred outside Ned Peppers bar in the city's historic Oregon District.
  • Law enforcement officials confirmed that the suspect's sister, Megan Betts, 22, was among the nine victims.
  • A gunman wearing body armor opened fire in a popular nightlife district in Ohio, killing nine and injuring 27 others, before he was killed by police, authorities said. The rampage was the second mass shooting in the U.S. in less than 24 hours.

    Police responded to the shooting in under a minute early Sunday on the streets of downtown Dayton's Oregon District, a historic neighborhood home to bars, restaurants and theaters.

    The gunman has been identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, of Bellbrook, Ohio, law enforcement sources told CBS News. The sources said police were searching his home Sunday morning.

    In El Paso, a gunman left 20 people dead and more than two dozen others injured on Saturday.

    Vigil crowd chants "Do something" to Ohio leader

    A crowd at a vigil honoring nine adults killed and others wounded by a gunman in Dayton interrupted a speech by Ohio's Republican governor with shouts of "Make a change."

    As Gov. Mike DeWine told the crowd Sunday evening that the families' pain can't be erased, many started chanting: "Do something!"

    Mayor Nan Whaley sought to calm them, saying the vigil was intended for the victims and there will be time later for dealing with policy issues.

    As names of the slain victims were read aloud, the audience repeated each one.

  • Who was the attacker?
    Hours after he had been named by the media, police officials confirmed the gunman's identity as 24-year-old Connor Betts from Bellbrook, Ohio.

    Police searched his home on Sunday.

    Earlier, US media reported that his sister had been found dead in a car with her boyfriend. But police said the male she was shot alongside was a "companion of the suspect" and did not elaborate on the relationships.

    "We don't know the thoughts of the shooter," Mayor Nan Whaley said.

    FBI agents are assisting police with the investigation.
