DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The Latest on the deadly mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio (all times local):

3:40 p.m.

Police in Dayton say the gunman in Ohio's mass shooting shot 26 people in 32 seconds before officers killed him.

Chief Richard Biehl says besides the nine people the gunman killed, he wounded at least 17 others.

Previously, police and hospital officials said at least 14 suffered gunshots. More than a dozen other people had other injuries related to the shooting early Aug. 4 in Dayton's Oregon entertainment district.

Police also showed videos Tuesday that helped track gunman Connor Betts' two hours in the Oregon district before he began shooting.

Police say Betts arrived with his sister and a friend at 11:04 p.m., went into a bar with them, and left them after midnight to go back to the parked car to retrieve body armor, an assault-style rifle and ammunition.

11:40 a.m.

Authorities are working to piece together what led to a mass shooting in Ohio after accusing the gunman's friend of buying body armor used in the massacre.

Dayton, Ohio, officials plan an update on the investigation at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

Federal authorities announced charges Monday against a longtime friend of gunman Connor Betts. Ethan Kollie is accused of lying on federal firearms forms while buying a pistol not used in the shooting.

They also accused Kollie of buying armor and a 100-round magazine for Betts. They said there was no evidence he knew what Betts planned.

Police say Betts killed nine people including his sister on Aug. 4 before they killed him.

Kollie will appear Wednesday in federal court. His attorney says Kollie was shocked by the shooting

1:14 a.m.

Federal authorities say they know who helped the Dayton gunman buy the body armor and assemble the weapon used in last week's mass shooting.

But authorities say there's not any evidence that Connor Betts' longtime friend knew about what he had planned.

The accusations came as prosecutors unsealed charges against Ethan Kollie of Kettering that accuse him of lying on a federal firearms form while buying a pistol not used in the shooting.

Kollie is to appear in federal court Wednesday on the charges. His attorney says Kollie was shocked that Betts carried out the shooting.

Authorities say they discovered that Kollie had lied on the form while investigating the Aug. 4 shooting in Dayton.

Police say Betts killed nine people within 30 seconds before officers shot and killed him.
