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