The shooter in the American city of Dayton, Ohio, killed his own sister in the uproar that claimed the lives of 10 people, police said on Sunday.
Biehl said the shooter opened fire with a .223-caliber high-capacity rifle with 100-round drum magazines. Officers patrolling the Oregon District as the bars were closing shortly after 1 a.m. heard the gunfire and saw a large crowd running away, the police chief said.
The sister of gunman Connor Betts, Megan Betts, is one of the victims of a shooting outside a bar in Dayton in the early hours of Sunday, said police chief Matt Carper.
Twenty-seven other people were injured when he fired dozens of shots. The motive remained unclear.
Authorities did not give details of the circumstances of the shooting, except that it happened in the Oregon district, a historic district known for its nightclubs, bars, art galleries and stores.
