    Dayton Shooter’s Friend Bought His Body Armor, Prosecutor Says

    Benjamin C. Glassman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, said that a friend of the Dayton gunman bought body armor, a gun accessory and a 100-round magazine for the man who killed nine people during a shooting in Dayton, Ohio, earlier this month. The friend, Ethan Kollie, faces unrelated weapons charges.

    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 just a week after the judge turned down a request for Kollie to be released on house arrest.

    Authorities say there's no evidence that Kollie knew his friend 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.

    His attorneys are appealing Friday's decision. They say Kollie had no role in the Dayton shooting and no prior criminal record.
