Dayton, Ohio shooting: Suspect’s sister, a Wright State student, killed in rampage

Megan Betts, the sister of the suspected gunmen in the Oregon District mass shooting, is one of the nine people killed in the rampage.

Betts, 22, was a student at Wright State University, said WSU spokesman Seth Bauguess.

Betts’ brother, Connor Betts, 24 of Bellbrook, is the suspected shooter. He was killed by police outside of Ned Peppers but not before he was able to shoot and kill nine people and injure at least 26 others, police have said.

Betts was studying environmental science, according to Wright State's student search online. She planned to graduate in 2020, according to her Facebook page.

Along with Betts, Logan Turner, 30 of Springboro, was killed. He previously attended Wright State, Bauguess said.

Edwards emailed the campus community to let them know that student counseling services will be available for anyone in need of assistance.
