Officials give updates on mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio | USA TODAY

Authorities provide updates on the shooting in Dayton that left 9 dead and dozens injured.


A lone gunman in body armor opened fire early Sunday in a “very safe” entertainment district, killing at least nine people, injuring 26 and igniting chaos in the crowded outdoor area before he was fatally shot by police within seconds, authorities said.

“Hundreds of people in the Oregon District could be dead today” if police hadn’t acted quickly, Mayor Nan Whaley said.

It was the nation’s second mass shooting in less than 24 hours. Late Saturday morning, a 21-year-old gunman killed 20 and wounded 26 others at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

In Dayton, Assistant Chief of Police Matt Carper said the shooting began at about 1:07 a.m. EDT and involved a “very short timeline of violence” before the attacker was killed. He said the gunman appeared to have acted alone, but that the investigation was continuing. The Oregon District is a trendy stretch of bars and restaurants.

  2. Allan Cove, When you referring to the middle eastern countries, you mean the casualties committed by Americans like the illegal invasion of Iraq?? BECAUSE IT WAS ILLEGAL..or perhaps you mean the everyday killings committed by the JEWS against the palestinians, with the support of the USA, or maybe you mean the killings and tortures of thousands of people during the Pinochet regime in Chile, and of course with the support of the USA. We can go on and on and on, with this nonsense. And never get anywhere, at the end is always the big fish that eats the small one..

  3. So he is not a terrorist he is just a shooter right ?

  4. Pushed in our faces for a day. All over my feed yesterday. What happened? Is this all resolved all of a sudden? When real events happen, it takes a lot more than one day to cover something, all these shootings (cough gun control agenda cough) have single day news breaks then go silent. They are getting lazier with all this because there are so many people who flat out believe anything on the tel-lie-vision as soon as they are shown it. Television PROGRAMMING hard at work!

No Peter blood there is no more to the story see this is as far as you know about the laws in Ohio if there was more I'd tell it simply if you own any amount of money to Ohio they will and can take your rights away if you knew the whole story you'd be saying ok yeah that's Abit extreme but I'm not going to collaborate on any of my personal business but just think it's not fair to take a man's right to own a firearm or be able to travel when he wants… where I live the judge said it's a shame they do that not a serious charge…if you get behind Don't worry you're gonna pay it!

  20. Lived in Dayton most of my life. Hated the weather so moved to Arizona. Worked at Miami Valley Hospital for years prior to leaving. So proud of the way Dayton handled this horrific situation. Top notch leadership as well as the best medical care anyone can ask for… Miami Valley Hospital is one of the best hospitals….proud to have been a part of MVH. Arizona health care sucks good thing I'm health. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. God bless everyone in Dayton. ♥️😥😢. Nan Whaley…👍👍👍.

  21. This happens time and time again, but nothing changes. There will be some talk about changing the gun laws but nothing will be done. How are the people who do these shootings able to obtain these weapons so easily? It would be unheard of in the UK.

  22. Let me guess…. White, Male, & Crazy Trump Supporter. This Stupid Saga with Guns Continues!!

  23. Get ur facts straight before blathering out a story, an ak is not a 223 caliber, fake news

  24. Its not a gun issue, its not a political issue, its a mental health issue. We have no community. LOVE IS DEAD. We are viod of compassion for one and other. We only love money and things. Most all of us are on one kind of drug or another. We are in despair. Expect more.

  25. Deep State: Quick! Mass shootings every day!! Epstein will talk! We're all in trouble if the media exposes our pedophilic criminality!!

  26. That woman is so fake. Especially when she told the policeman to "Just stand right next to me".. These Dimocrats are something else.. And smiling the whole time

  27. Make no mistake Police and Media Love this shit, they get attention, blood donations, more resourses for police and great credit for basically just doing their jobs.

  28. The question Cui Bono. Who benefits from this, right now its the democrats so my money is on Antifa running a false flag to prop up their chances in 2020. Its not going to work on me, I see right through this shit.

  29. All mass shooters played violent video games.

  30. Stay safe and alert guys. This is not gonna stop until we act.

  31. Horrific crime. This guy went after Mexicans and killed many many Americans. Unbelievable. Mr. Prez U found a crazy psycho listening to your racist hate and rage filled speeches, interviews and tweets. Humpem Don. A special place awaits u in Hell.

  32. I find it disgusting that a left wing, anti-gun agenda is being pushed in the immediate aftermath. These dems really are shameless in using other people's victimization to push their own, flawed, anti-american agenda. Shame on the Mayor…

  33. Where/how was this guy radicalized? Where were HIS parents? Why didn't HIS family turn him in? What the Hell is Trump doing about mass shootings?

  34. They cant give info but want blood donations?

  35. "The Ef-Bee-EYE has been here since…since…since…minute one!"
