Skip to comments.FBI reviewing Ohio shooter’s interest in violent ideology

The shooter who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, had expressed a desire to commit a mass shooting and showed an interest in violent ideology, investigators said Tuesday as the FBI announced it is opening an investigation.
Federal investigators will try to determine what ideologies influenced 24-year-old Connor Betts, who might have helped him or knew in advance of his plan, and why he chose the specific target of Daytons Oregon entertainment district for the shooting early Sunday, said Special Agent Todd Wickerham, the head of the FBIs Cincinnati field office.
Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Betts had violent ideations that include mass shootings and had expressed a desire to commit a mass shooting.
Wickerham didnt say whether the FBI is looking at if the case could be treated as domestic terrorism, as the agency has done in the El Paso, Texas, mass shooting earlier in the weekend. He said Betts hadnt been on the FBIs radar. He declined to discuss what specific ideologies might be linked to Betts actions but said there was no evidence so far that they were racially motivated.
Meanwhile, public conversation around the shooting shifted Tuesday toward how to address people with mental health issues who might pose a threat of violence, as a woman who briefly dated the gunman recounted their bonding over struggles with mental illness and the governor called for more mental health support along with gun safety measures.
Investigators havent publicly offered a motive for why Betts, wearing a mask and body armor, opened fire with an AR-15 style gun outside a strip of nightclubs in Dayton early Sunday, killing his sister and eight others before officers fatally shot him less than 30 seconds into his rampage.

...Feel free to finish that thought.
Satanism is a phony “religion”.
Maybe if they didn’t spend the last 3 years setting up Trump with the fake Russia accusation, and covering up Hillary’s and Epstein’s crimes and colluding with British intel, they would have had time to look at this guy BEFORE.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the FBI was involved long before the shooting.
They usually know these things.
Has the FBI figured out Las Vegas yet?
This is taking attention away from Epstein and his high position cronies...
I don’t trust a damn thing these people say or do.
Why is the FBI involved?
Here’s a clue for the FBI. His “violent ideology” was Marxism.
Has the FBI figured out Las Vegas yet?
Well, the FBI had that well covered, if you know what I mean.
They may have noticed him, but as their usual with these disasters, didn’t lift a finger.

So was the El Paso killer on their radar?
Obviously he was enraged by Christians, conservatives, and western culture. So those need to stop before they enrage more psychos.
Interested in violent ideologies would have to include all action movie Buffs...
If the FBI had been paying attention to Portland, they could have figured this out years ago.
I guess there is no one for them to shoot or burn alive so they were not interested.
Ruby Ridge and Waco
Nah, he’s clearly a extremely violent white wing white supremacist / nationalist.
I’m not sure they have found Las Vegas on the map yet.
What no mention of him talking to Antifa, a fan of Antifa, being a Democrat, who liked Warren.
This is why the media needs to be held accountable.
They should be doing the same in El Paseo.
