Those killed included Betts' sister.

Biehl said the shooter had modified the weapon, but didn't detail how he did so.

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. El Paso police chief Greg Allen said the rifle used in the shooting was purchased legally.

Former schoolmates said they were on a "hit list" Betts created back in high school.

Conflicting accounts of the shooter have emerged.

Bartender Andy Baker said Betts was at Romer's Bar & Grill last Monday and seemed fine.

Just a day after Governor Mike DeWine was shouted down by people who attended a vigil for the victims, telling him to "do something" about gun violence, Jones hopes tragedy leads to action.

One former classmate, who was told by a school official that he was on the hit list, said the list was separated into two columns: a "kill list" for boys and a "rape list" for girls. That followed an earlier suspension after Betts came to school with a list of female students he wanted to sexually assault, according to the two classmates, a man and a woman who are both now 24 and spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern they might face harassment. Officials are unclear if Betts targeted her.

Not everyone who went to school with Betts had bad things to say.

Bellbrook Police Chief Doug Doherty has been in touch with Betts' parents, who are not ready to talk about the deaths of their two children, Doherty told CNN affiliate WLWT. Investigators found 41 spent shell casings from Betts' weapon, the police chief said.

Betts had no apparent criminal record as an adult. The file included a 2015 crash report from when Betts ran his auto into a ditch and a copy of a 2012 OH state law that requires all sealed records of juvenile crimes to be expunged either after 5 years or on the offender's 23rd birthday.

Doves are released over gathered mourners during a vigil at the scene of the Dayton, Ohio shooting.

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. The 20 mass killings in the U.S.in 2019 that preceded this weekend claimed 96 lives.

Democratic leaders urged Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold an emergency session to debate gun control legislation after lawmakers left Washington a few days ago for a five-week recess.

Responding to the shootings, United States 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".

Trump suggested a bill to expand gun background checks could be combined with his long-sought effort to toughen the nation's immigration system, but gave no rationale for the pairing. He didn't say how.
