(Reuters) – A gunman who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month spent two hours in the nightlife neighborhood before unleashing an attack on bar goers and probably carried it out alone, police said on Tuesday.

During an afternoon news conference, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl used footage from video cameras from several businesses in the neighborhood to lay out a detailed timeline of the gunman’s movements around the neighborhood known for its night life before the early Sunday morning shooting.

The article goes on to state the following:

At 11:04 p.m., Betts arrived in his car with his sister and a companion. The trio went to a tavern known as Blind Bob’s. Some 69 minutes later, Betts left the bar alone and went to Ned Pepper’s, a bar across the street, Biehl said as he showed the footage.

The report says Betts was at Ned Pepper’s for 28 minutes. He then spent 9 minutes in his car to change his clothes and collect his rifle, body armor and mask.

At 1:04 a.m., two hours after arriving in the neighborhood, he returned to Ned Pepper’s and shot 17 people. The attack left nine people dead, including his sister.

Biehl says, “This was a plan well before he got to the Oregon District.” he also indicated that according to video footage, Betts seems to have acted alone.

“Clearly, that day during that time period, we don’t see anyone assisting in committing this horrendous crime,” Biehl said.

Officials say likely Betts knew where his sister was around the time he began the attack, but they are unsure whether she was an intentional victim.
