More information has come to light about the Dayton Police Department’s handling of last week’s mass shooting when a gunman shot dead nine people in a span of 32 seconds before the police killed him. A preliminary autopsy shows the police fired 24 to 26 bullets at the gunman, who had 52 wounds on his body. The Dayton police have also revealed at least one of the victims who died was shot by both the gunman and the police, but authorities claim the lethal round was fired by the gunman.
