Shooting In Popular Downtown Dayton Area Leaves 9 People Dead


Watch Video

At least nine people are dead and 26 others were injured after a shooting outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio in the early hours Sunday morning. 

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley told reporters at a press conference that the attack happened around 1 a.m. in a popular downtown district in Dayton. She said responding officers quickly shot and killed the suspect within a minute.

The gunman has not been identified yet and is thought to have acted alone. Whaley said the shooter was wearing body armor at the time of the attack and used a high-capacity gun.

The Dayton shooting came less than a day after a shooting in an El Paso, Texas Walmart that killed at least 20 and injured more than two dozen others. 

Officials in Dayton say the FBI has joined the investigation. The motive for the attack is unclear.
