DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — People gathered at the scene of the Dayton mass shooting to pay tribute to the victims.
The Dayton Daily News reports people observed a moment of silence at 1:05 a.m. Sunday at Ned Peppers Bar in the city’s popular entertainment district.
The song “We Are Family” then played over loudspeakers.
The newspaper reports that many people visited the district Sunday from out of town. Ty Sullivan came from Columbus with her family. She said she “felt a need to be in this area.”
Nine people were killed in the Aug. 4 attack. More than 30 were injured.
Investigators say 24-year-old Connor Betts opened fire with an AR-15 style gun outside the district’s businesses. He was killed by police within less than 30 seconds.
