Nine victims and one shooter died and more than 30 people were injured in the attack that occurred around 1 a.m. near Ned Peppers Bar on East Fifth Street. The suspected shooter, Connor Betts, 24 of Bellbrook, was killed by police less than a minute after he opened fire.
Megan Betts was studying environmental science, according to Wright State’s student search online. She planned to graduate in 2020, according to her Facebook page.
Edwards sent an email Sunday to students, staff and faculty to let them know that “two of our dear Wright State family members” were killed in the shooting. Edwards emailed the campus community to let them know that student counseling services will be available for anyone needing assistance.
“Our heart goes out to all those impacted by the horrific event that occurred earlier this morning in Dayton. The quick action of the Dayton Police Department brought and end to something that most assuredly could have been much worse,” Edwards wrote in her morning email. “We are offering our full support and assistance however it might be needed.”
