Dayton, Ohio-officials are sharing updates on the deadly shooting rampage.

The shooter is to make the lives of nine people, including his sister, in a 32-second rampage Nov. 4, in Dayton, Ohio, seems to have planned the attack “for” when we arrived in the city of Oregon, Neighborhood, the city, the police chief said on Tuesday.

The attacker, who was killed by the police in less than a minute after the firing of the first shot, almost a half an hour in a bar and he was facing prior to wearing an ill-fitting bullet-proof vest and carrying a gun, the chief said, suggesting that he was “casing” the location.



However, the police department’s Chief Richard Biehl stressed that the gunman was already well-acquainted with Ned Pepper and the other bars in the area, according to the Dayton Daily News.

“It wasn’t a place he did not know,” the chief said during an hour-long news conference, according to the report.

The chief added that 17 people were injured, not 14, as the police said.

Is still unknown, but the chief said the question was, whether the shooter intended to kill his younger sister, Megan Betts, with whom he traveled to the Oregon Quarter, with a friend of mine, who survived the attack.

However, the chief confirmed that the killer knew his sister and friend were in the area, Blind Bob’s, because of the text messages give you and the brothers and sisters were in communication during the times that the gunman was gone, back to their car to get his gun and other equipment.

Biehl said the friend, the Chace, the Beard, the shooter has a message for seven minutes prior to the shooting, saying that he and his sister would be, and that’s where they were eventually shot and killed.

“It’s an interesting question,” the chief said, the question of whether the nurse was an intended target. “We have a radically different point of views in this regard. Can We get a better idea about it by using historical data to look at, but on the basis of the evidence from that night, and I don’t think we’ll be able to make that call.”

The chief also said that investigators believe that the nurse is not aware that the shooter had a shotgun and the other stuff in the trunk of the car they were driving in to each other.

Meanwhile, Biehl said investigators had gathered enough evidence to reveal a “picture” of the killer’s frame of mind, and that he was obsessed with violence, and that he is interested in the act of committing a mass murder, the Daily News reported.

But what did the shooter choose Feb. 4, and in the Oregon District, has remained unclear, the chief said.

According to the chef, and a timeline showing the shooter’s sister and her boyfriend arrived in the area shortly after 11 o’clock in the evening, They came to Blind Bob’s for a little over an hour, and then the gunman went to the other side of the street, only to Ned Pepper’s, where he stayed for about a half an hour.

He walked back to their car, passing a police vehicle, and I’ve got about five minutes to gather his weapons and other gear.


Police believe he brought the gun behind Blind Bob’s in an area that is not covered by a security camera. When he came to a small alley along the bar, and began to open fire in a patio, around a 1:05 p.m. and was fatally shot by police in less than a minute later.

In the meantime. A friend of the shooter, was expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon after being accused of buying the body armor, as well as helping build the type of weapon used in the for the Dayton offense.

The researchers say that there is no evidence to suggest that He Kollie, of Kettering, he knew what the gunner was up to, but they say Kollie has lied on a federal firearms form, as it is to buy a gun that has not been used in the attack.
