DAYTON — News Center 7 will have special coverage Monday and Tuesday beginning at 5 p.m.
The City of Dayton will hold virtual events in remembrance of those killed, and in honor of the survivors on the one year anniversary of the Oregon District Shooting.
The city has tabbed the event on the one year mark as “Dayton Shines,” a reference to the Gem City Shine event that took place in the entertainment district just days after the mass shooting that killed nine victims and injured 32 more.
“In the midst of an already difficult year, on August 4, 2019, we joined the sad list of cities terrorized by a mass shooting,” Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said in a press release Friday.
“Although we have been forced to change our initial plans due to the current health crisis, we are hopeful that these events will still allow people to express themselves and still come together as a community.”
