Another Mass Shooting – 9 Dead & 27 Injured
This is literally an epidemic here in the United States. I woke up this morning and saw this story on USA Today about another mass shooting? Is this for real? This one only hours after 20 people were killed and dozens injured in El Paso, Texas.
The shooting took place in a "very safe" entertainment area called the Oregon District which is a trendy stretch of bars and restaurants in Dayton, Ohio. The tragedy started at 1:07 a.m. A man dressed in body armor opened fire killing at least nine people and injuring 27 more. The shooter was shot and killed within seconds by the police which ultimately saved hundreds of lives because of their quick actions.
A full investigation is underway with the local police department along with the F.B.I. They're studying video footage and interviewing witnesses.
The shooter used a high power rifle with lots of magazines. NBC News just reported that the shooter is now known to be a 24-year-old white male named Connor Betts. We do not have any information on motive at this time. Again, we think and pray for these families as we still do for the families and victims of the El Paso shooting. May God be with you.
