Connor Betts, the man who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio this past weekend, attended an armed protest, alongside Antifa, in May of this year, according to a local Ohio news source.
According to WHIO, Betts attended a protest against the Ku Klux Klan while armed with a rifle appearing to be the same one he used over the weekend for mass murder. The local news station reports Betts spoke briefly to a reporter while wearing a bandanna and sunglasses covering most of his face.
Betts seems to have been made aware of the KKK rally by far-left Antifa doxxing account Antifash Gordon, as a screenshot provided by journalist Nick Monroe reveals.
This new information adds to the evidence that the shooter was a far-left extremist.
As BLP has previously reported, Betts had previously advocated for socialism, Elizabeth Warren, satanism, and the recent firebombing of an ICE facility by an Antifa extremist. He had also interacted with many of the leading left-wing figures on Twitter.
