Dayton Shooting Victim has Missoula Connection
One of the victims in the Dayton, Ohio shootings has a Missoula connection.
Police say the shooter, 24-year-old Connor Betts, opened fire in the area around 1 a.m. Sunday in a popular entertainment district, killing his sister, Megan Betts, and eight others. Police say he was fatally shot by officers within 30 seconds.
A manager at Megan Betts' former place of work says she never discussed her brother, Connor Betts, but seemed close with her mother.
Police say Megan and eight others were killed by her brother early Sunday morning at a Dayton entertainment district.
Daniel Cottrell, manager of the Smokejumper Visitor Center in Missoula, Montana, tells The Washington Post that Megan worked there this summer as a tour guide.
Cottrell says Megan worked there as an intern through a program run by the Student Conservation Association.
He described her as a "very positive person," who was competent and well-liked by her peers. He says she also loved exploring new places, including the "local culture."
He says Megan's mother picked her up from Montana at the end of her internship.
