[UPDATE: Here’s what the friend bought] – Dayton shooter’s FRIEND bought body armor and firearm accessory

The Associated Press is reporting now that a friend of the Dayton shooter bought the body armor and ‘firearm accessory’ that was used in the shooting:

Federal authorities say the friend of the Ohio shooter bought him body armor and a firearm accessory earlier this year.

A charging document obtained by The Associated Press Monday says Ethan Kollie “indicated he purchased body armor and a firearm accessory for Betts earlier this year.”

It was reported earlier this morning…

The Justice Department says a friend of the Ohio gunman is being charged with lying on federal firearms forms.

Authorities say more information about the charges being unsealed will be announced Monday afternoon.

I would assume this is the same friend, Ethan Kollie.



The AP report says that Kollie bought the items for Betts ‘earlier this year’. Which means, we don’t know yet if Kollie bought it for Betts specifically for the mass shooting or for some other reason.

If he aided Betts in the mass shooting there’s gonna be hell to pay and there should be.

UPDATE: It’s now being reported that the ‘firearm accessory’ that Kollie purchased was the mega 100-round double drum magazine and top receiver:
