Connor Betts, the gunman who shot and killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, after he opened fire close to the Ned Peppers Bar in the city’s Oregon district just after 1am, reportedly killed his sister Megan and her boyfriend in the process.
Megan was unfortunately one of his nine victims in yesterday’s horrific shooting, police have confirmed as her body was found beside her boyfriend in a car, NBC News reports.
Connor, 24, and Megan, 22, are the only two children of Stephen and Moira Betts. Megan was reportedly about to start her senior year at Wright State University in Dayton.
Connor was killed by police less than a minute after he started shooting a .223-caliber rifle in the streets of Dayton’s historic Oregon District.
It was the second US mass shooting in less than 24 hours. Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said the shooter was wearing body armour and had additional high-capacity magazines. She said ‘hundreds of people could be dead today’ if police had not reacted so quickly.
Whaley said at least 27 people were treated for injuries, and at least 15 of those have been released. Several more remain in serious or critical condition, hospital officials said at a news conference. Some suffered multiple gunshot wounds and others were injured as they fled.
