A gunman wearing body armor and carrying extra magazines opened fire in a popular nightlife area of Dayton, Ohio, killing nine and injuring dozens, authorities say, in the second USA mass shooting in less than 24 hours.

Dayton police patrolling the area responded in less than a minute to the shooting, which unfolded around 1 a.m. Sunday on the streets of the Oregon District, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said at a press conference. Police managed to take down Mr Betts by shooting him just 30 seconds after he gunned down people enjoying a Saturday night out.

Dayton, Ohio was seconds away from a "catastrophic loss of life", the city's police chief said. "But we know thoughts and prayers are not enough, we have a responsibility to act", Brown posted in a pair of tweets.

She said that 26 people were injured in the shooting.

Whaley noted at a news conference that the city was still recovering from tornadoes that swept through western OH in late May, destroying or damaging hundreds of homes and businesses. She added, "If we did not have police in the Oregon District. what we could have had in this city".

A number of anti-gun activists responded to the tweet, calling on the president to implement stricter gun laws in the country.

Police have said there was nothing in his background to prevent him from buying the firearm he used. They said they also found a shotgun in his vehicle. Police identified the others as Monica Brickhouse, 39; Nicholas Cumer, 25; Derrick Fudge, 57; Thomas McNichols, 25; Lois Oglesby, 27; Saeed Saleh, 38; Logan Turner, 30; and Beatrice N. Warren-Curtis, 36. Although they'll investigate the possibility of a hate crime, they said the quickness of the rampage made any discrimination in the shooting seem unlikely. At least 16 others went to area hospitals with injuries. "I was anxious nothing would be done about this gun violence epidemic".

They then engaged with Mr Betts who was wearing a mask and bullet proof vest.

In all, there have been at least 32 mass shootings, defined as three or more killings in a single episode, in the United States this year. The footage also shows the response of nearby police officers, who open fire on the gunman.

The companion was wounded in the shooting, police said.

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

Responding to the shootings, USA president Donald Trump tweeted: "Today, I authorized the lowering of the flags to half-staff at all Federal Government buildings in honor of the victims of the tragedies in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio". The 20 mass killings in the U.S.in 2019 that preceded this weekend claimed 96 lives. He didn't say how.
