DAYTON — Megan Betts, 22, was killed in the Dayton Oregon District mass shooting.
She was a student at Wright State University, according to WSU spokesman Seth Bauguess.
Betts was studying environmental science, according to Wright State’s student search online. She planned to graduate in 2020, according to her Facebook page.
Betts’ brother, Connor Betts, 24 of Bellbrook, is the suspected shooter. He was killed by police outside of Ned Peppers but not before he was able to shoot and kill nine people and injure at least 26 others, police have said.
Betts died from gunshot wounds in her right forearm and chest, said Montgomery County Coroner Kent Harshbarger.
Wright State provost Sue Edwards sent an email today to students, staff and faculty to let them know that “two of our dear Wright State family members” were killed in the shooting.
Along with Betts, Logan Turner, 30 of Springboro, was killed. He previously attended Wright State, Bauguess said.
Edwards emailed the campus community to let them know that student counseling services will be available for anyone needing assistance.

“Our heart goes out to all those impacted by the horrific event that occurred earlier this morning in Dayton. The quick action of the Dayton Police Department brought and end to something that most assuredly could have been much worse,” Edwards wrote in her morning email. “We are offering our full support and assistance however it might be needed.”
