Mourners Chant "Do Something" at Dayton Vigil

Nine Killed, 27 Wounded In Mass Shooting In Dayton, Ohio

DAYTON, Ohio (WTVN)--A crowd in the hundreds attended a candlelight vigil Sunday evening, not far from the scene of a shooting in Dayton that left nine people dead, and 27 others injured, before the gunman was shot and killed.

It happened early Sunday outside a bar in the popular Oregon District, with the shooter wearing body armor, a mask, and a hood, opening fire on a crowd with a long rifle, and carrying numerous high-capacity magazines.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley told the crowd that she received calls from 61 other mayors, who also had mass shootings in their cities.

She also told the crowd that something needs to be done.

Governor Mike DeWine also addressed the crowd, and that's when they began chanting "do something."

DeWine says he is considering proposing additional legislation regarding background checks.
