Dayton Sunday shooting: Nine already killed, gunman also died3 min read

Nine humans were been killed and at least 27 injured in a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio — It’s the second in the US in 24 hours.

Police killed the gunman while he was still at the point of the mass shooting.

The mass shooting by the gunman started at 01:07 local time (05:07 GMT) in the Oregon district of the city centre.

The local mayor said the gunman wore frame armour and came carrying greater ammunition.

The suspect used a .223-calibre attack rifle with high-capacity magazines.

Nan Whaley told news agents she became “amazed” through the fast reaction of the police officials.

“As a mayor, this is a day that we all dread happening,” she said. “What’s very sad is I’ve got messages from mayors across the country – it’s sad that we’ve all gone through it.”

The incident came only hours after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas — which left at the least 20 humans lifeless.

The Gun Violence Archive says there had been 251 cases of mass shootings thus far — this year.
