‘Active Shooter’ Reported in Dayton, Ohio

Officials investigate the scene after a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, U.S. August 4, 2019.

Assistant Police Chief Matt Carper told reporters the incident began at 1 a.m. local time in Dayton's Oregon District, a downtown historic neighborhood popular for its nightclubs, restaurants art galleries and shops.

Miami Valley Hospital spokeswoman Terrea Little said 16 victims have been received at the hospital, but she could not confirm their conditions.

The shooter had a.223-caliber gun with high-capacity magazine and was wearing body armor, she said. The shooting location was outside of a nightclub known as "Ned Peppers".

Tianycia Leonard, 28, was in the back, smoking, at Newcom's.

"It was so noisy, but then you could tell it was gunshots and there was a lot of rounds", Leonard said.

Gov. Mike DeWine issued his own statement before 7 a.m., announcing that he's ordered flags in OH remain at half-staff and offered assistance to Whaley.

Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown wrote in a tweet Sunday that "thoughts and prayers are not enough, we have a responsibility to act". "This is extremely unusual obviously for any community, let alone Dayton".

The latest mass shooting comes just a day after a gunman killed 20 and injured dozens more at an El Paso mall, and one week after a shooting at a festival in California left three dead.

The Ohio shooting was the third major outbreak of US gun violence, coming seven days after a teenager killed three people with an assault rifle at a food festival in Northern California before taking his own life.

The shooting in Dayton the 22nd mass killing in the United States this year.
