Authorities who have been trying to piece together a motive behind Connor Betts' deadly mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month revealed that the gunman may not have intentionally murdered his sister as first believed.
During a Tuesday press conference, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl released a detailed timeline of events of the night that 24-year-old Betts killed nine in a rampage outside Ned Peppers bar on August 3.
Text - Messages - Connor - Betts - Sister
Text messages show Connor Betts knew roughly where his 22-year-old sister Megan was when he first opened fire, but what’s not known is whether he could specifically see her standing under an umbrella at a taco stand.
'If we can’t seem to make that call conclusively — that we’re divided about how, whether that was intentional or not — I think it’s inconclusive,' Biehl said.

According to Biehl, Betts, his sister, and their mutual friend, Charles Beard, arrived at the Oregon District and parked in the lot behind Thai 9 at 11:04pm.
All three of them entered a bar called Blind Bob’s where they remained together until 12:14am on Sunday morning.

At this time, Betts left Blind Bob’s and went to Ned Peppers where he would stay for around 30 minutes, before returning to his car by himself at 12:44am.
Betts was seen on CCTV camera loitering around the vehicle for around eight minutes. He was seen looking at items inside his trunk, gathering them into a backpack and changing into a dark hooded sweatshirt.

As he walked away from the car, Betts could be seen carrying a black backpack, walking back towards Blind Bob’s through a darkened side alley.
In the shadowed walkway, Betts hid for around nine minutes, where police believe he was reassembling his assault rifle, which they say was broken down in the bag.
