The mayor said 27 people were treated at hospitals and 15 had been released by about 10 a.m. ET Sunday.

Police said the "active shooter situation" started at around 1am local time.

"If Dayton Police hadn't gotten to the shooter in under a minute, hundreds of people could be dead", Whaley said at a press conference.

This is the second mass shooting to occur in the less than 24 hours. "Information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton", the president said in a tweet, adding that "law enforcement was very rapid in both instances".

"Through our grief, America stands united with the people of El Paso and Dayton".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, the El Paso community. our colleagues across the country in OH who are going through the same processes", he said.

President Donald Trump has tweeted in response to the shootings in OH and Texas on Sunday, writing "God bless the people of El Paso Texas".

FBI agents were assisting in the investigation.

With a population of around 140,000 Dayton is in western OH, around 55 miles (90 kilometers) northeast of Cincinnati, 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of Columbus and 120 miles (195 kilometers) east of Indianapolis.
