Victim of Thousand Oaks Massacre Survived Las Vegas Shooting

Authorities responded to a report of an active shooter at a Thousand Oaks nightclub

It is believed that the gunman was David Ian Long, a 28-year-old military veteran. The restaurant was reportedly popular with local college students.

The carnage added Thousand Oaks to the seemingly endless list of American cities that have experienced a mass shooting.

"My Son is home, well sort of, back in Hawaii, soon to be in Cali come January, hooray!" she wrote on December 14, 2012.

Reports soon emerged that some at Borderline had survived the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest festival in October 2017, when a gunman killed 58 and injured hundreds more in the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

The shooter's body was found in an office later.

Police have given no updates as to Long's possible motive, although Dean said "there is no connection as of yet" linking the attack to terrorism.

When asked by a reporter what it looked like inside the venue, Dean responded: "Like hell".

The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a veteran sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer inside the door.

It burned in the same path as the 2013 Springs Fire that torched 24,000 acres before running into the Pacific Ocean. FOX 11 reporter Gina Silva stood by with residents as the fire moved in on their Westlake Village homes.

Throughout the event, Long used a handgun with "perfect form", according to one witness who has family in the military, and reloaded the gun at least once.

Cody Coffman, 22, was head umpire for a baseball league and was looking to join the Army.

Alaina Housley, 18, was a freshman at Pepperdine University, and the niece of actress Tamera Mowry, who confirmed her passing with this statement - quote - "Alaina was an incredible young woman". "I have a daughter coming on the 29th of this month".

An ex-Marine in the community with known mental health issues shot and killed at least 12 people Wednesday night, in addition to wounding almost two dozen others shortly after 11 pm local time at the Borderline Bar & Grill dance hall.

Dean said the gunman, who was yet to be identified, was found dead "from a gunshot wound" when authorities entered.

Julie Hanson, who lives next door to the ranch-style home that Long shared with his mother, described him as "odd" and "disrespectful" well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines. He of course served a term in Afghanistan back in 2010/2011.

Kelly is now serving in the Marine Corps Reserves, Maj.

A neighbor of Long's also told ABC News that Long suffered from PTSD, and that they had "no idea what he was doing with a gun". When deputies were called to his house earlier this year, officers chose to have a mental health professional evaluate Long. The sheriff who interviewed the individual said he appeared "somewhat irate, acting a little irrational".

Thousand Oaks is a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles from Los Angeles.

Numerous patrons were drawn by the "college country night" promotion. Pacific time. Chris Brown's "Turn Up the Music" was blaring on the dance floor.

Twelve people were killed and several others were injured after a gunman opened fire at a college bar in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday (November 7) night. "It's just unreal", his friend Aliza Thomas said Friday. "I watched the gun".

"It's going to be a very somber day", Steinwender said.

In the bar, people dived for cover, or began to run. I kept getting stomped on. "He had an extended magazine on it". "Then he shot the cashier, just a young girl". Some threw bar stools through a window and escaped. While the others became two-time survivors, Orfanos died. I never thought this would ever come from him.

"He gave his all and tonight as I told his wife he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

Rochelle Hammons, 24, said she heard a volley of shots before she was able to flee. "You don't know how to feel".
