Dayton Gunman Explored ‘Violent Ideologies,’ FBI Says

Chuck Ross  August 07, 2019

Investigators have evidence that the shooter in Dayton, Ohio, explored “violent ideologies” prior to his attack that left nine dead early Sunday, an FBI official said, but there was no indication the shooting was racially motivated.

“We have uncovered evidence throughout the course of our investigation that the shooter was exploring violent ideologies,” Todd Wickerham, the FBI special agent in charge of the Cincinnati field office, said Tuesday at a press conference.

Wickerham did not describe the ideologies in question, Connor Betts’ social media activities appear to show he described himself as a “leftist” and expressed support for Antifa, a violent, left-wing activist group.
