DAYTON, OHIO: Nine Dead, Sixteen Injured after Shooting at Bar

Nine people have been killed after a gun man opened fire outside a bar in Dayton, OH.

Police also confirmed at least 16 people had been hospitalized and were in unknown conditions following the attack in Dayton, Ohio at around 1am local time.

Police were called to Ned Peppers, a bar on East Fifth Street in the down town Oregon District of the US city, to reports of an active shooter.

Assistant police chief Matt Carper told reporters the unidentified suspect, who had a long gun and fired multiple rounds, had been shot dead by officers.

He added: "There is one shooter we are aware of. We are working to identify him to see what his motivation was.

"The FBI are on the scene assisting but we are leading the investigation."

The force later confirmed on Twitter there were officers in the area at the time of the incident and they were able to "put an end to it quickly".

Footage and images from the scene show emergency vehicles outside the bar, which is the Dayton's arts and entertainment district.

Clips posted on social media purported to show several bodies in the street outside the bar and one witness claimed he heard up to 50 shots and saw people "trampling over each other".

    #DaytonShooter Connor Betts: Another Extremely Dangerous Radical Muslim Inspired Satanic Communist Socialist Democrat, "Who Shot All those people in Dayton, Ohio." Read: The Midnight-Mass Satan-hailing Democrat Dayton shooter who had received such "help" praised "Amphetamines", shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border, supported the D squad & railed against #QAnon "conspiracy theories". My Opinion: "This Satanic Democrat Web Page was Pulled in Another Attempt to Cover Up the Truth and feed you a pack of lies to Grab Your Guns." Why? Just think, "2Thessalonians 2: For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction." "Congress must Grab Guns to make people helpless, that this can Happen."

    These shootings sure take public focus off AG Barr and the Epstein problem.

    Dayton is a total shithole - surprised this isn't a daily occurrence. Must not have been a white guy since there's no name or photos released within an hour of it happening.
