Nine people were killed and another 26 people injured when the shooter opened fire with a.223 high-capacity rifle around 1 a.m. Sunday, authorities said in a press conference shortly after the shooting.

Local, state and federal authorities, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, are investigating the shooting.

Roy Kanpari, a 24 year-old merchandise salesman who witnessed the shooting and posted images to social media, told the Guardian in a phone interview he saw the shooter approach the Ned Peppers Bar from an alleyway to the side.

Bellbrook Police Chief Doug Doherty said he and his officers weren't aware of any history of violence by Betts, including during high school, and had no previous contact with him.

The shooting in Dayton, a riverfront city of about 140,000 people in southwestern OH, came just 13 hours after a mass shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, where 20 people were killed and 26 others wounded.

FBI agents are also assisting police with the investigation.

Authorities said that as of Sunday afternoon, 12 of the 27 people injured in the shooting were still in the hospital.

Who is Connor Betts?

Police believe there was only one shooter.

He also called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to "bring the Senate back tomorrow" to pass a gun-buying background check measure in the wake of the shootings in Dayton and in El Paso.

Fifteen of the injured victims have been released with one remaining in critical condition.

What do we know about the shooter?

"I'm heartsick for the 29 people killed this weekend in El Paso and Dayton-and all the other lives we lose every day due to senseless gun violence", Warren wrote.

"Fran and I are absolutely heartbroken over the frightful attack that occurred this morning in Dayton".

"People my age, we don't think something like this is going to happen", Papillon said.

"All the victims are from our own backyard, too, so this is just an vast tragedy", Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said, according to the broadcaster.

Twenty mass shootings have taken place in the US before Sunday's incident in OH, which in total claimed 96 lives.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, responded to news of the attack by tweeting that "thoughts and prayers are not enough" and calling for stricter gun control laws. Information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton.

The shooting in Dayton happened about 13 hours after the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. Some local pastors were on hand to offer support, as were comfort dogs. Video recorded outside the Ned Peppers Bar showed revelers enjoying a summer night and then suddenly having to flee for their lives as shots rang out and officers raced to the scene and opened fire on the suspect.

It's the eighth deadliest USA mass shooting in the nation's modern history.

Whaley said the Oregon District is expected to reopen Sunday afternoon, and a vigil is planned Sunday evening. In May, the Dayton area was pummeled by a series of tornadoes. "God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio", he tweeted.

Whaley commended the "girt and resiliency of this community", saying Dayton has been through a lot this year.
