FBI: The Dayton Shooter was Helped by a Friend
The Dayton shooter had help killing nine people, that’s what federal investigators are now saying.
The FBI says a friend of the shooter is now facing federal firearms charges.
Just before the shooting at Ned Peppers bar, 24-year-old Ethan Kollie, a close friend of the shooter, brought him body armor, an AR-15 and a nearly 100 round drum magazine.
Kollie told the FBI he had helped assemble the magazine weeks before the shooting.
And said he also bought the gun and helped hide it from the shooter’s family.
But prosecutors say there is no evidence so far that Kollie helped plan the attack.
Kollie admitted to FBI agents that he lied on forms when purchasing the gun claiming he wasn’t a drug user, when in fact he was.
Kollie is looking at up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
