Federal prosecutors say Ethan Kollie bought the armor, a gun accessory and a 100-round magazine for his friend Connor Betts earlier this year.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman told reporters Ethan Kollie bought body armor and a 100-round magazine for Connor Betts, who killed nine people on August 4.

A lawyer for Kollie, Nicholas Gounaris, said in an emailed statement that his client was a friend of Betts, but had no indication Betts planned to carry out a mass shooting.

"Possessing controlled substances and a firearm is itself a crime", Glassman noted.

Kollie said he bought the items for Betts and stored them at his apartment to help Betts hide them from his parents.

A statement by USA federal police was released on Monday revealing that Ethan Kollie bought armour, a gun accessory, and 100 rounds for his friend Connor Betts earlier in the year.

Kollie, who was arrested Friday, said he and Betts did "hard drugs", marijuana and acid together four or five times a week between 2014 and 2015, according to Glassman. He also told the agents that he had smoked marijuana nearly daily over a period of 10 years.

According to the affidavit, Kollie also acknowledged purchasing three items for the Dayton shooter: body armor, an upper receiver that was attached to the AM-15 weapon and a 100-round double drum magazine.

Authorities obtained the form that Kollie used to purchase the pistol last May and found that the man answered "No" to a question asking if he was an unlawful drug user or addicted to marijuana, a depressant or stimulant or any other controlled substance.

A search warrant was executed at Kollie's home, turning up several weapons, marijuana, and mushrooms.

The U.S. Attorney's office for southern OH said more information about the charge that is being unsealed will be released at a news conference Monday afternoon.

Officers shot and killed Betts within 30 seconds of when his rampage started.

He also admitted to having used drugs four or five times a week with Betts, according to an Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit.

He faces up to 15 years in prison, Glassman said. More than 30 others were injured, including 14 with gunshot wounds.
