Beets for the first time caught on camera in the area at about 11:04 p.m. when he parked his car and walked over to Blind Bob’s and his sister Megan, and one other co-worker.

The police said that the images “have a strong feeling that their [the brothers ‘and sisters’] companion”, who was wounded in the rampage, had no idea what to do, he [Betts] going to do, nor does he have any knowledge of the weapons that were in the trunk of the car.”

The three of them went to Blind Bob’s, where they stayed until about 12:13 a.m. Betts left the bar and went to the other side of the street to another bar, Ned bell Peppers, over a year into a 12:42 pm

Betts, dressed in a t-shirt and pair of shorts left, then Once the Peppers and headed back in the direction of the parking lot, crossing paths with a police car that was in the area, Lt. Paul, He said at a press conference.


Biehl said there was a “high probability” that Betts was in the Ned Pepper’s case, but added that he was very familiar with the Oregon area, so this was not a place that he didn’t know.”

“It was a good idea before he was in the Oregon district,” Biehl said, noting that it is unlikely that there is anything going on on the inside of the bars, that is, the shooter in order to carry out his rampage.

Police say the shooter got back into his car, and it took only eight minutes to change in and a dark hoodie with long sleeves, and a “collection of the contents in the cargo area of the vehicle,” which included “a very heavy backpack.”

Authorities say Betts has got about nine minutes of which made its way from the car park to the strip of bars, once again, through the alley between the two and use that time to reload his AR-15-style pistol, before he came out from behind the alley and opened fire in the vicinity of Blind Bob’s at 1:04 pm

The police confirmed that the gunman’s sister, Megan Beets, and was one of the first of the three deaths, but, Biehl stressed that the law enforcement officers had been “radically different views” on the question of whether the shooter intentionally killed his sister first.

Biehl turned out that the phone is a proof of that evening, it turned out that the shooter texted back and forth with his sister and their companion, when, seven minutes before the shooting began, and that the companion in telling Betts that they were at a taco stand in the area of Blind Bob’s.

Biehl said to Betts “knew where they were, because they were in communication at that time, going back and forth.”

Biehl also said that Betts and his sister spoke on the telephone to take pictures, but it is not clear what is the content of the conversation. In spite of knowing that their place of residence, according to the police, they can’t say for sure if the shooter was able to see his sister and her companion from his position in front of Blind Bob’s, as they can be obscured by the design of the bar area, which included sun umbrellas on the terrace.


“Due to our best tools that we have at our disposal, we believe that the shooting started about 1:05 minutes, 35 seconds. We believe that it is finished in 1:06, and 7 seconds, is 32 seconds,” said Saunders.

Biehl said that, while Betts was wearing a bullet-proof vest during the shootout, put on the whole armor of “the fragile”, which responding officers to shoot and kill him.

“He had a (ballistic) plates, but that’s about it,” Biehl said.

Although the authorities could not confirm that the shooter, the scene, Biehl said Betts had “a history of the obsession with force and violence, and ideations, and the discussion of their involvement in the mass killings, and the expression of the desire to carry out a mass shooting.”


Biehl said Betts was in the Oregon Area the evening prior to the shooting, adding that you “will definitely have to consider it was thought of at the moment.”

The police found evidence of drug paraphernalia on his person, but Betts was intoxicated or under the influence of illicit drugs continues to be uncertain, pending the toxicological reports, Biehl said.

The authorities have said that there’s nothing in Betts’ in the background, in order to prevent him from purchasing the weapon, stating that the gun was bought online from a dealer in Texas and shipped to another firearms dealer in the Dayton area.
