The shooter was behind Newcom’s and Heart Mercantile for roughly 10 minutes before he went down an alley beside Blind Bob’s and open fire.

Police showed surveillance video from various sources in the Oregon District that showed the gunman’s movement in the time leading up to the shooting.

The shooter is seen walking back to his car around 12:45 a.m. and then returning to the Oregon District in a dark hoodie and with a backpack.

Video showed people on the patio at Blind Bob’s ducking for cover as the gunman walked through the alley beside the patio and started shooting.

Another video showed the Dayton police officers as they first engaged the gunman.

Police believe the shooting lasted 32 seconds, with officers engaging the gunman about halfway through those seconds.

Beihl said that it was clear the gunman was familiar with the area and that the shooting had been previously planned. However, there are no indications that anyone was assisting him.

Fourteen law enforcement agencies responded to the shooting, according to Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein.

The agencies consisted of federal, state and county first responders and they assisted with CPR, tourniquets and treating victims of the shooting.

She also said that support for the Dayton Foundation tragedy fund continues to be strong.
