Ohio AG Supports Release of Dayton Shooter's School Records

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

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Ohio's Attorney General is supporting a move to have the Dayton shooter's school records released.

Dave Yost filed a friend of the court filing in the case, where multiple media agencies are suing the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Local School district to have the shooter's records made public.

The district is arguing that the records are protected by both federal and state law. Yost is arguing that once that student dies, the law no longer applies.

The shooter killed nine people, and injured 26 others, when he opened fire outside a bar in Dayton's popular Oregon District on August 4th. He was then shot dead by responding officers.

Former classmates of the shooter said while in high school, he was suspended for making a "hit list" of people he wanted to shoot, and for making a "rape list" of girls he wanted to sexually assault.
