Man survives California, Las Vegas shootings one year apart

The Latest 13 dead after California bar shooting including Sheriff's Deputy

"They ran out of the back doors, they broke windows, they went through windows".

Witnesses said a hooded gunman entered the building in dark clothing and shot the doorperson before shooting into the crowd of dancers shortly after 11 p.m., The Associated Press reported.

Long, who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, also killed himself after massacring his victims.

The gunman used a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, but the gun had an extended magazine, the sheriff said.

Long had received two minor traffic citations in recent years, Dean said. Whitler said then she heard "Get up, he's coming!" and people trampled on each other to get out.

Officials said Long, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, used a legally purchased.45-caliber handgun outfitted with an extended magazine and deployed a smoke device during the attack.

"That Sheriff's Sergeant died in the hospital".

United States media said a number of the young people who were at the bar rampage in California on Wednesday night had survived that massacre.

The mother of one of the 12 victims of Wednesday's mass shooting at a southern California bar demanded gun control in the wake of her son's death. A mental health crisis team decided Long did not need to be taken into custody. "I would open the garage and would be like, 'What are you doing?'"

Dean said he had been told that 150 to 200 people were in the Borderline at the time.

"All of a sudden we heard the "bang, bang" of the gunshots and it just started going insane and people were pushing".

A man holds his head in his hands outside the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, following the shooting.

When deputies arrived at the scene, shots were still being fired, Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference.

Another witness says the gunman wielded what appeared to be a sub-machine gun.

"When (he) started to reload, that's when we got people out of there and I didn't look back", Wennerstron said. He described an incident - which seems to match the April episode mentioned by the sheriff - in which he called law enforcement to Long's house because it "sounded like he was tearing down the walls of the house, like somebody's just beating on the walls with a big hammer or something".

Ventura County Geoff Dean addresses the media about the mass shooting.

Then three months later, 10 people were shot and killed at Santa Fe High School in southeastern Texas by alleged gunman Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at the school.

"It's particularly ironic that after surviving the worst mass shooting in modern history, he went on to be killed in his hometown", his father told the Ventura County Star.

Trump touted his efforts to fund PTSD among veterans. A little over one year ago, on October 1, 2017, Orfanos was at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival when a gunman killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more.
