Aug 4 (Reuters) - A gunman who attacked revelers outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, early on Sunday, killing nine people and wounding 27 others, was taken down by officers within 30 seconds of firing his first shots, the city's police chief said.

Authorities do not know yet why Connor Betts, a 24-year-old white male from Bellbrook, Ohio, launched his attack, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said at a news conference. He said Betts was wearing a mask and ear protection and was armed with an assault-style rifle and shotgun.
