The Associated Press reported that 24-year-old Connor Betts had cocaine and other drugs in his system during the time of the mass shooting. The coroner also authorities found a bag of cocaine on the gunman’s body.

“The gunman in Dayton who shot up outside the bar had cocaine, alcohol, and antidepressants and is a system when he shot and killed at least nine people last weekend,” Fox News’ Shepard Smith reported.

The gunman opened fire with a rifle in a Dayton neighborhood early Aug. 4, killing people and wounding at least 17 other people by gunfire. Officers shot and killed Betts just outside the doors of a crowded bar within a minute of the attack beginning. Authorities are still working to determine a motive.

“Ex-girlfriends of the killer because he showed signs of troubling behavior and had violent fantasies,” Smith said. “He also reportedly put together a rape list in high school, naming female classmates who he wanted to slit their throats and to tie them up. In addition he had a kill list. Red flags all along the way.”
