Connor Betts was identified as the man behind the Dayton mass shooting that injured 27 people and killed nine others, including the suspect’s sister.


Another horrific incident happened within 24 hours of a mass shooting in the U.S. on Sunday. The man behind the mask, responsible for nine deaths and 27 injuries was identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts from Bellbrook, Ohio, according to CBS News.


Sources said that the authorities searched the man’s house on Sunday morning, but believed he acted alone in the crime. His reason behind the shootout is yet to be identified, but it is confirmed that his younger sister, Megan Betts, 22, was killed as well.


Betts wore body armor as he fired at civilians on Sunday. Lt. Col. Matt Carper announced to the press that the gunman was shot to death by the police who came to the scene within a minute.

“If they hadn’t got to the shooter within a minute, hundreds could be dead by now,” Mayor Nan Whaley said. “The quickness of Dayton police saved literally hundreds of lives.”


President Donald Trump sent his “heartfelt thoughts and prayers” to the victims of the shooting and ensured the people that the government is working on the cases in both states.


Another shooting occurred at the Walmart close to Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso on Saturday, which killed 20 people. According to St. Robert Gomez of the local police department, Patrick Crusius is held by the authorities for being connected with the shooting.

Governor Greg Abbott described August 3 as “one of the deadliest days in the history of Texas.” Together with the Dayton shooting, America experienced yet another bloody weekend.



President Donald Trump sent his “heartfelt thoughts and prayers” to the victims of the shooting and ensured the people that the government is working on the cases in both states.


“The FBI, local and state law enforcement are working together in El Paso and in Dayton, Ohio. Information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton. Much has already be learned in El Paso,” he tweeted.

In a separate post, Trump called the shooting “an act of cowardice” and further mentioned that taking the lives of civilians will never be justified or be tolerated by him and everyone in America.
