Day­ton shooter’s friend loses bid to get out of jail

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

A friend of the Day­ton gun­man who in­ves­ti­ga­tors say bought body ar­mor and an am­mu­ni­tion mag­a­zine used in the shoot­ing has lost a sec­ond at­tempt to get out of jail.

A fed­eral mag­is­trate judge Fri­day re­jected a re­quest from Ethan Kol­lie’s at­tor­neys to re­voke his de­ten­tion or­der. The de­ci­sion comes a week af­ter the judge re­jected a re­quest for Kol­lie to be re­leased on house ar­rest.

Au­thor­i­ties say there’s no ev­i­dence that Kol­lie knew Con­nor Betts was plan­ning a mass shoot­ing Aug 4. He’s in­stead charged with ly­ing on a fed­eral firearms form while buy­ing a pis­tol that wasn’t used in the at­tack.
