9 Killed, Dozens Injured In Mass Shooting In Dayton Ohio Following El Paso Massacre

At least nine people are dead and 26 injured after a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, according to police.

The shooting took place around 1 a.m. outside on East 5th Street in the city’s Oregon district, a popular downtown area, authorities said.

The suspect, who was shot and killed by responding officers, fired a “long gun” with multiple rounds, Dayton Deputy Director and Assistant Chief of the Police Lt. Col. Matt Carper told reporters early Sunday morning.

Elizabeth Long, a spokeswoman at Kettering Health Network, which operates several Dayton area hospitals including Kettering Medical Center and Grandview Medical Center told reporters that 26 people were taken to three of the network’s hospitals, many with gunshot wounds to the “lower extremities and the abdomen.”

The motive for the shooting was not immediately clear. Though many people were killed or injured, police said the incident was over quickly, because officers were already patrolling in the vicinity when the gunshots started.

Mayor Nan Whaley (D) told reporters that the shooter was wearing body armor and had extra magazines.

The Ohio massacre took place within 13 hours of a shooting that left 20 dead in El Paso, Texas.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
