She remembers that he used to pretend like he had a gun and was shooting at them. He further added, "The suspect was wearing a ballistic vest, a mask, and protective ear muffs when he unleashed a barrage of shots on a street in Dayton's popular Oregon District, sending hundreds of people who had been out for a fun night on the town running for cover and leaving the sidewalks covered in blood".

According to former classmates of Connor Betts, the gunman who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio on 4 August, he had been suspended while in high school for writing a "hit list" of those he wanted to kill and carrying a "rape list" of girls he wanted to sexually assault, reported AP.
Facing pressure to take action after the nation's latest mass shooting, Gov. Mike DeWine urged Ohio's GOP-led state legislature Tuesday to pass laws requiring background checks for almost all gun sales and allowing courts to restrict firearms access for people perceived as threats. DeWine's Republican predecessor, John Kasich, also unsuccessfully pushed for a so-called "red flag law" on restricting firearms for people considered threats.
Authorities have said there was nothing in the gunman's background that would have prevented him buying a weapon. He offered few details.
If passed, OH would become the 12th state (as well as the District of Columbia) to require universal background checks for firearms sales. Police Chief Michael Brown in Sugarcreek Township, which has jurisdiction over the Bellbrook school, wouldn't answer any questions about Betts from an AP reporter Monday.
The accounts by the former classmates emerged after police stated there was nothing in the background of 24-year-old Connor Betts that would have stopped him from acquiring the.223-calibre rifle with extended ammunition magazines that he used to commit the mass shooting outside a bar in a nightlife district of Dayton, Ohio.
A former cheerleader, the woman said she didn't really know Betts and was surprised when a police officer called her cellphone during her freshman year to tell her that her name was included on a list of potential targets.

Air strike on south Libyan town kills dozens
The Tripoli-based internationally recognised government opposing Haftar said dozens were killed and wounded. Libya has been mired in conflicts and chaos ever since the fall of former leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
"It seems to just defy believability he would shoot his own sister, but it's also hard to believe that he didn't recognize it was his sister, so we just don't know", Biehl said.
Partridge said he witnessed Betts being detained by police at school the following day.
Any attempt to suggest a motive so early in the investigation would be irresponsible, Biehl said.
But Biehl said it not clear if all were full.
"(I) said, 'Hey. I hear there is this hit list, and you've got my family on there.
Expressing his condolences, US President Donald Trump said on Sunday afternoon, "Hate has no place in our country".
In the hours before the Dayton shooting, the Twitter account "liked" several tweets about a shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 dead, including one supporting gun control and others that called the El Paso shooting suspect a "terrorist", and a "white supremacist".
Betts killed 9 people in less than 30 seconds, and dozens of others were injured - some from gunshot wounds, others from the chaos of fleeing the gunman. The file included a 2015 crash report from when Betts ran his auto into a ditch and a copy of a 2012 OH state law that requires all sealed records of juvenile crimes to be expunged either after 5 years or on the offender's 23rd birthday. And what could authorities have done to prevent the attack that ended when officers gunned him down?
