The FBI has opened an investigation into the Dayton shootings last Sunday, citing the gunman's interest in violent ideology.
Investigators will try to determine what ideologies influenced 24-year-old Connor Betts. Investigators are looking into who might have helped him, and why he chose the Oregon entertainment district. Meanwhile, President Trump's plan to carry a message of national unity and healing to Dayton and El Paso, Texas today is drawing skepticism from some local residents as well as Democratic presidential candidates. A White House spokesperson says Trump also wants to have a conversation about ways to head off mass shootings in the future. Critics point to Trump's divisive language and his anti-immigrant rhetoric that sounds much like that of the El Paso gunman. Democratic Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley questions whether Trump's visit will help heal the community, given his divisive rhetoric.
