One Year After Mass Shooting, Frustration In Ohio City< < Back to
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Tormented by mind-scarring memories and questions without answers, Dion Green has dedicated his life after the death of his father and eight other people in a mass shooting to memorializing them and trying to bring helpful change.
Green’s father died in his arms, one of nine people killed by a gunman in the early morning of Aug. 4, 2019 in Dayton, Ohio.
There is a lot of frustration and disappointment as the first anniversary nears Tuesday, much of it because of the coronavirus-necessitated safety restrictions and orders that will prevent a large community commemoration.
At-home activities such as a nine-minute remembrance are planned.
