Dayton police tweeted that an active shooter situation began at 1 a.m. Sunday on East Fifth Street in the city’s Oregon entertainment district. Lt. Col. Matt Carper said at a press conference that the suspect was shot to death by uniformed officers on routine patrol in the area. Mayor Nan Whaley commended the officers for their quick response.

“While this is a terribly sad day for our city, I am amazed by the quick response of Dayton Police that saved literally hundreds of lives,” she said at a news conference.

As of right now, the police have not identified the gunman or a motive for the attack that killed a total of 9 innocent people and injured 26 others. However, it was said that the suspect appeared ready to exact an even higher death toll. He was reportedly outfitted in body armor, carrying a rifle with multiple high-capacity magazines, according to Ms. Whaley.

In a series of tweets on Sunday morning, Donald Trump said “information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton.”

“The FBI, local and state law enforcement are working together in El Paso and in Dayton, Ohio. Information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton. Much has already be learned in El Paso. Law enforcement was very rapid in both instances. Updates will be given throughout the day!”

He added in another tweet,

“God bless the people of El Paso Texas. God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio,” he said in another tweet.
