Feds Arrest Friend Who Provided Dayton Shooter's Body Armor

Feds Arrest Friend Who Provided Dayton Shooter's Body Armor

The Aug. 4 attack, which ended when police shot and killed 24-year-old Connor Betts, was one of three-high profile mass shootings over three weeks that stunned the United States and stoked its long-running debate on gun rights.

Officers shot and killed Betts within 30 seconds of when his rampage started.

A friend of the OH gunman who killed nine people told federal agents he bought him body armor, a gun accessory and a 100-round magazine earlier this year, according to a court document unsealed Monday.

Police have said that there was nothing in Betts' background that would have prevented him from buying the AR-15 style gun used in the shooting.

Though police have not announced a motive in the Dayton shooting, memories from former classmates and posts on his apparent Twitter account show that the gunman took a deep interest in violence and had easy access to powerful firearms.

The Dayton mass shooter had his friend buy him body armor, a gun accessory and a 100-round magazine allegedly used in the massacre earlier this month. Kollie indicated on this form that he did not use any narcotic drugs.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

In a follow-up interview last week, Mr. Kollie admitted to agents that he and Betts did "hard drugs", acid and marijuana four or five times a week in 2014 and 2015, and Mr. Kollie said he himself smoked marijuana daily since he was 14.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman and Special Agent in Charge Todd Wickerham of the Federal Bureau of Investigation will make an official announcement at 2 Dayton.

Betts had driven to the Oregon District where he carried out the mass shooting with his best friend Charles "Chace" Beard, 24, and Megan.

Kollie agreed to allow agents to search his home, and while inside, they say they smelled marijuana and observed in plain sight a bong and the Drago pistol.

The charging document said Ethan Kollie bought the items for 24-year-old Connor Betts and kept them at his apartment so his friend's parents would not find them.

Possessing a firearm as an unlawful user of a controlled substance is a federal crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He is also charged with making a false statement regarding firearms, which could earn him another five years.
