Thousand Oaks shooting: hero witness recalls shooting

  • A police officer was among the slain

In a chilling final Facebook post, the war vet who massacred 12 people in a California bar ranted about mass shootings and the "hopes and prayers" commonly offered to victims after them, according to a report.

The Los Angeles Times quoted a law enforcement official as saying that at least 30 shots were fired inside the bar.

Sean Adler, 48, was a bouncer at Borderline Bar & Grill.

Also, one of the possibilities investigators are looking into is whether gunman Ian David Long believed his former girlfriend would be at the bar, the official said. He's pictured (right) in a photo supplied by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Colell said she wanted to kick Long off the team, but the boy's coach urged her to reconsider because that could compromise his goal of joining the Marines.

Witnesses said he wore something like a ski mask as he opened fire in the packed club at around 11.20pm on Wednesday evening.

But neighbors reported hearing frequent loud fights between Ian David Long and his mother, one of them so extreme they called police in April, and authorities at the time anxious that the war veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder, though a mental health specialist concluded there were no grounds to have him involuntarily committed.

They include Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus, who was first on the scene, Cody Coffman, 22, Alaina Housley, 18, Justin Meeks, 23, Noel Sparks and Dan Manrique.

Kelly, who has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, said that Borderline had become a safe haven for dozens of Vegas survivors and it was common for many of them to hang out there together.

The dead also included a man who had survived last year's massacre in Las Vegas, Telemachus Orfanos, 27. "He didn't come home last night", said his mother, Susan Orfanos.

"Here are my words: I want gun control", Schmidt-Orfanos said as she shook with grief.

"He survived the Vegas massacre previous year where he spent the whole night carrying injured and assisting first responders", Krisilas told USA Today.


Trump also ordered the U.S. flag at the White House and other government buildings to be flown at half-staff.

The United States has one of the highest gun-related death tolls in the world due to lax gun control laws, according to a study released in August by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

She could often hear him yelling and cursing, but several months ago, unusually loud banging and shouting prompted her husband to call authorities.

"The first thing I said was, 'Please don't drink and drive, '" Coffman recalled.

Country music prides itself on being the most accessible and familial genre, where superstars are expected to treat fans like friends.

About 18 months ago, Don and Effie MacLeod heard "an bad argument" and what he believes was a gunshot from the Longs' property.

Deputies were called to Long's house in response to a disturbance in April, 2018 and "felt he might be suffering from PTSD", he said.

"I just started hearing these big pops - pop, pop, pop".

'He reloaded and then just kept on popping them off, ' said Tim, John's stepdad.

The Thousand Oaks Teen Center, located at 1375 E. Janss Rd., 40 miles west of downtown Los Angeles, opened to the public Thursday afternoon.

"Tonight Thousand Oaks takes its place with those cities, who in order to move forward will rely on hope. we are Thousand Oaks strong".

Authorities in Thousand Oaks described an attack of military efficiency. A gunman shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel and casino with high power weapons killed 58 people.
