Victim of Thousand Oaks Massacre Survived Las Vegas Shooting

Dean said Long was a veteran of the U.S. marine corps.

Students had gathered for college country night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday when shots rang out around 11 p.m.

- Sheriff Dean said that Long was the victim in a January 2015 fight at a different bar in Thousand Oaks.

According to the Pentagon, Long served in the Marine Corps from August 2008 to March 2013 and was a machine gunner. His marriage disintegrated during his service, with he and his wife separating in June 2011 while he was on a seven-month tour in Afghanistan.

Ms Teylor Whittler managed to escape the carnage unhurt. "He looked like he knew what he was doing". When he went inside the building Helus "was struck multiple times with gunfire", Dean said.

Long was reportedly a regular at the bar who usually kept to himself.

Helus, who is survived by his wife and son, was a 29-year veteran of the department who was set to retire next year.

"He went in there to save people and made the ultimate sacrifice", Dean said.

Of the 12 victims was Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, who immediately charged inside to confront the gunman.

"I'm super upset that it happened in our home, and I feel bad for the families that have to go through this", Merrill said at the vigil. Can you do that for me?

One officer said it had been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks.

Matt Wennerstrom, a 20-year-old college student, said the shooter apparently had a 10-15 round magazine on his gun.

"I hope people call me insane". They had chairs and threw them out the window, and they were able to take me and my girlfriend out the window and carried us out here.

On Friday afternoon, his four-wheel drive burst into flames on the busy street, before he left the vehicle armed with a knife. Members of the public are asked to avoid the area on Bourke Street between Russell and Swanston Streets.

Todd Stratton, who was at the bar with two friends who died, said he was in "disbelief" because he's known Long for years.

It was the last time she would talk to her husband.

"I started hearing these big pops".

"We didn't take it seriously at first. because it sounded like firecrackers and everyone just dropped down to the floor".

Paddock killed 58 people, before turning the gun on himself in the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history.

Dean described the scene as "like hell".

More recently he was living in a home where neighbours said they could hear frequent, aggressive shouting between Long and his mother, especially over the past year. Police were also called to his home in Newbury Park in 2018 for a domestic incident where he was "somewhat irate and acting irrationally".

Trump touted his efforts to fund PTSD among veterans.

The extended magazine Long allegedly used can not be legally purchased in California under a 2000 law.

The 22-year-old went to Borderline Bar & Grill every Wednesday to line dance, his dad said.

A witness who was inside the bar during the shooting said she heard "very, very loud gunshots". Kuredjian said he could not confirm whether any of those shot were dead or the severity of their injuries.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", he said.
