California shooting: Victim of Thousand Oaks massacre had survived Las Vegas horror

California shooting: Victim of Thousand Oaks massacre had survived Las Vegas horror

Authorities have yet to determine a motive and are exploring all possibilities.

Instagram and Facebook typically refuse to discuss individual accounts and did not respond to a request for comment.

Long, a former machine-gunner who served in Afghanistan, opened fire with a handgun during college night at the bar, then apparently killed himself as scores of police officers closed in.

FBI investigators following leads in quest to investigate the gunman's state of mind.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials have swarmed the house, desperate to find the motive behind his alleged shooting rampage. There were rumors Long suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Dean was a close friend of one of the shooting victims, Sgt. Ron Helus, who died in the line of duty.

Helus was a 29-year veteran looking forward to retirement in the next year or two, and leaves behind an adult son in addition to his wife, grieving colleagues said.

Orfanos was not the only Las Vegas shooting survivor at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

The mother of the 27-year-old man killed in the latest attack, Telemachus "Tel" Orfanos, said her son survived Vegas only to die inside Borderline, less than 10 minutes from his home. "Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought... life is boring so why not?" "I want gun control". When the Las Vegas gunman opened fire from a 32nd-floor hotel room, Kelly said he threw a friend to the ground before helping get her out of the area and into a room. She was appalled that such bloodshed had come to her community.

"I'm super upset that it happened in our home, and I feel bad for the families that have to go through this", said Merrill, the exhaustion evident in her eyes. A video shows her shaking with rage as she pleads for gun control.

Julie Hanson, who lives next door to the Longs' ranch-style home, described him as "odd" and "disrespectful" well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines.

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

Dean said Long had several previous run-ins with police, including an incident in April where deputies were called to his home in Newbury Park because he was reportedly behaving erratically.

In one instance, Colell said Long used his fingers to mimic shooting her in the back of the head as she talked to another athlete.

Thousand Oaks is a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Los Angeles.

At least one woman held a large American flag as the somber procession passed.

For residents of the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, that moment came at the end of a gut-wrenching week in which a combat veteran entered a local bar and killed a dozen people in the kind of mass shooting that has become increasingly commonplace in the United States.

He and his wife, who have lived in Thousand Oaks for 34 years, took refuge in a nearby shopping center before returning to their home later on Friday.
