A mass shooting in a popular night life district of Dayton Ohio has left 9 people killed. It is the second such mass shooting in the United States within the last 24 hours according to an AP report.
The alleged shooter, a man wearing body armor who has not yet been identified, opened fire at around 1 am on Sunday morning killing people seemingly at random. He left at least 26 others injured who are being treated at nearby hospitals with no further information available at this time about their condition.
The gunman was subdued and killed by patrolling police who responded in less than a minute.
The Ohio shooting came hours after a young man opened fire in a crowded El Paso, Texas, shopping area, leaving 20 dead and more than two dozen injured. Just days before, on July 28, a 19-year-old shot and killed three people, including two children, at Northern California’s Gilroy Garlic Festival.
