The gunman in the Ohio shooting was wearing body armor when he opened fire on patrons at a bar, killing nine and injuring 27 early Sunday morning ‘in less than a minute’.

Dayton police said that an active shooter situation began in the Oregon District at 1am, but officers nearby were able to ‘put an end to it quickly’.

Lt Col Matt Carper said at a press conference that the suspect was shot to death by responding officers.

Because officers were in the area when the shooting started, they killed the gunman in ‘less than a minute,’ authorities said.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said during a Sunday morning press conference that had police not responded so quickly, ‘hundreds of people in the Oregon District could be dead today’.

Whaley said the gunman was carrying a .223-caliber rifle and had additional high-capacity magazines with him. The suspect opened fire on the Ned Peppers Bar from the street. A community vigil is planned for 8pm on Sunday evening.

At least 26 others are being treated at area hospitals, though no details about their conditions have been released. At least one person is in critical condition.

Miami Valley Hospital spokeswoman Terrea Little said 16 of the victims were brought to the hospital, but she couldn’t confirm their conditions.

Kettering Health Network spokeswoman Elizabeth Long said multiple victims from the shooting had been brought to system hospitals, but she didn’t have details on how many.

Authorities said of the 27 injured, 15 have been discharged from the hospital and several people remain in serious or critical condition.

The Ohio shooting is the second mass shooting in the US in less than 24 hours.

In a Facebook post, the bar confirmed that their employees were safe.

‘All of our staff is safe and our hearts go out to everyone involved as we gather information,’ the post reads.

President Donald Trump has been briefed on the Dayton shooting and is monitoring the situation, Deputy Press Secretary Steven Groves said.

In a series of tweets on Sunday morning, Trump said ‘information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton’.

‘God bless the people of El Paso Texas. God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio,’ he said in another tweet.

Democratic Sen Sherrod Brown of Ohio says ‘thoughts and prayers are not enough’ after a shooter killed nine people and wounded dozens more before he was killed by police in Dayton.

In a statement Sunday, Brown says he is angry that state and national lawmakers won’t pass more gun safety laws.
