FBI Says Dayton, Ohio Gunman Was Obsessed With Violence

The gunman who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, before he was slain by police had a history of violent obsessions.

According to the FBI, Connor Betts had also previously mused about committing mass murder, says Reuters.

The FBI has yet to conclude what motivated the killer or whether he may have had an accomplice.

Betts opened fire with an assault-style rifle fitted with an ammunition drum that could hold 100 rounds.
