While the video above is not graphic in nature, it is intended to show the shooter’s perspective, and may prove difficult for some. Viewer discretion is advised. 

During a press conference Tuesday, Dayton police released additional information about where Oregon District mass shooter Connor Betts was at various points that night.

The video above gives a timestamped rundown of this account from police, shot from the shooter’s point of view. Portions toward the end of the video also show the perspective of police during their response.

Betts began the evening by visiting various establishments, before returning to his car to change clothes and retrieve a backpack, then returning to the shops to carry out the shooting.

The video shows the short path Betts took while carrying out the actual shooting, and the short path police took to catch up to him and take him down. Despite this, Betts killed nine people and injured dozens of others.

The path the shooter took is one of the elements of the massive investigation currently underway by Dayton police and the FBI. For complete coverage of the investigation and the latest updates, click here
