Netanyahu Offers Condolences Following Texas, Ohio Mass Shootings

As a high school student, the gunman in the Dayton, Ohio, massacre had a "hit list" of classmates he wanted to kill or hurt, according to four former students who said they were told by school officials they were on the list.

"The second victim is Megan Betts, a white woman, 22 years old", said a police spokeswoman, reading the list of victims.

Nine people were killed early Sunday morning, and at least 27 more injured, in a shooting in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio.

El Paso authorities offered few details about the assault, but Police Chief Greg Allen described the scene as "horrific" and said numerous 26 people who were hurt had life-threatening injuries.

The death toll from a mass shooting in the southern USA city of El Paso, Texas, rose to 21 after one of the wounded died in hospital Monday, police said. Police officers on patrol nearby immediately responded and killed Betts less than a minute after he opened fire, authorities said. Biehl said the siblings had arrived in the same vehicle with a third person earlier in the evening but separated before the rampage. OH law bars anyone convicted of a felony as an adult, or convicted of a juvenile charge that would have been a felony if they were 18 or older, from buying firearms. "This is a debate that certainly should take place".

Another 37 people were injured, Dayton Fire Chief Jeffrey Payne said. The gun was bought legally online from a dealer in Texas and shipped to a local firearms dealer, police said.

Authorities searched the Betts' family home in Bellbrook, a suburb southeast of Dayton, and uncovered writings that expressed an interest in killing people, two law enforcement sources told CNN.

Had he gotten inside Ned Peppers Bar, the result would have been "catastrophic", Biehl said. "He loved his patients and served them well, with a loving and caring spirit", the statement said.

R. Kelly Pleads Not Guilty, Denied Bail in NY Federal Case
The star's not guilty plea follows a previous plea entered by the star in which he denied 13 alleged sex trafficking charges. He's charged with racketeering, kidnapping and sexual exploitation of a child, and faces similar charges in a Chicago case.

Nothing in Betts' record precluded him from purchasing the assault-style weapon, which had been modified since it was sold, the police chief said.

Biehl said Betts' parents were having a tough time.

Both former classmates told The Associated Press that Betts was suspended during their junior year at Bellbrook High School after a hit list was found scrawled in a school bathroom.

The El Paso attack was the 250th mass shooting in the United States in 2019, according to not-for-profit organization Gun Violence Archive.

"They are victims, and we're treating that as such - them as victims", he said.

The shooting followed another just hours earlier at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

The two mass shootings reverberated across the USA political arena with some Democratic presidential candidates accusing Trump, a Republican, of stoking racial divisions reut.rs/2yFzyni. The three apparently parted at some point before the shooting.

"It seems to just defy believability he would shoot his own sister, but it's also hard to believe that he didn't recognize it was his sister, so we just don't know", said Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl.
