DAYTON, Ohio – Mayor Nan Whaley and Springfield native John Legend are speaking in the Oregon District one week after the mass shooting.

The shooting killed nine people and injured dozens more.

Dayton Police were able to take down the 24-year-old gunman less than a minute after shots rang out in the early morning hours of August 4th.

During the press conference, Legend announced he’d host a private performance in the Oregon District Sunday night for first responders, survivors, and employees of Oregon District businesses.
