Friend of Dayton shooter facing charges

Hatred and Violence Toward Women Often Tie Mass Killers

A statement from federal prosecutors alleges Kollie lied on federal firearms forms in order to purchase weapons for Betts.

Glassman and Todd Wickerham, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Cincinnati, announced the charges at a 2 p.m. news conference in Dayton.

According to the affidavit, Kollie acknowledged purchasing three items used by Betts during the August 4 mass shooting: body armor, upper receiver that was attached to the AM-15 weapon, and a 100-round double drum magazine. He was killed by police officers soon after he began firing. The people killed in Dayton last weekend included Connor Betts' sister.

Kollie also told authorities he smokes marijuana every day and had been doing so for 10 years, Glassman said.

Glassman said there is no evidence that Kollie participated in the planning or shooting with Betts.

Kollie allegedly told federal agents that he regularly used marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms, which he grew at his apartment, and he routinely took "micro-doses" of mushrooms because it provided him with energy and it was "fun".

The attorney added that Kollie potentially faces up to 15 years in prison for possessing a firearm while using controlled substances and faces another five years for lying about his drug use on his firearm forms.

Five killed in accident at Russian military test site
In planning for the risks associated with the missile tests, he said, "I must say, what happened was not foreseen". On August 10, it was reported that five people died in the explosion on a military testing ground in Arkhangelsk.

The Associated Press reports police indicate there was nothing in the gunman's history that would have prevented him from buying the gun and accessories on his own.

"Kollie stated that he answered "no" to the question regarding drug use", the complaint says.

31-year old Anthony Reynolds, who was outside a bar in Dayton at the time of the shooting, said that the first gunshot "was kind of an echo because of the buildings".

A person can not legally buy a gun if they are "an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance".

Federal authorities have arrested a man who acknowledged purchasing body armor, AR-15 parts and a 100-round double drum magazine for the Dayton shooter.

Kollie kept the items at his apartment to help Betts hide them from Betts' parents, according to an affidavit.
