In the second such incident in less than 24 hours, a gunman in Dayton, Ohio, has killed nine people. Some 27 others were injured. Responding officers “put an end to it quickly,” fatally shooting the body-armor-clad assailant equipped with spare clips for his .223-caliber rifle, authorities said. The early Sunday violence occurred outside Ned Pepper’s Bar in the historic Oregon District.
What’s been the reaction? Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley called it “a day that we all dread happening,” and “what’s very sad, as I’ve gotten messages from cities across the country, is that so many of us have gone through it.”
