Thousand Oaks mass shooting survivor: "My friend killed my other friends"

Twelve Dead After Mass Shooting At California Bar's College Student Night

Twelve Dead After Mass Shooting At California Bar's College Student Night

A second law enforcement official, Ventura County Sheriff's Captain Garo Kuredjian, said that - based on time stamps - the gunman apparently stopped shooting inside the bar and posted on Instagram.

Adler had recently opened a coffee roasting business and was working as a bouncer at Borderline on Wednesday night.

Police say that gunman Ian David Long, a 28-year-old Marine veteran, used a handgun with an illegal extended magazine to carry out the killings before turning the gun on himself.

Another photo from 2014 shows Ian Long with his arm draped around his mother in front of Dodger Stadium.

She said the gunman "knew what he was doing", Fox News reported.

The motive for the rampage late Wednesday night was under investigation.

He added: "I hope people call me insane.wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony?"

But a mental health specialist who assessed Long after sheriff's deputies responded to a call about his agitated behaviour last spring anxious he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The mother of a young man who survived last year's gun massacre in Las Vegas only to be killed by another gunman in a California bar this week has made an impassioned plea for gun control.

The dead also included a man who had survived last year's massacre in Las Vegas, Telemachus Orfanos, 27.

'I don't want prayers.

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

When the gunfire was over, 12 people were dead, including a Navy veteran who had lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history a year ago.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he had "been fully briefed on the awful shooting", the latest chapter in America's epidemic of gun violence that came just 10 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. I love you, I'll talk to you later, ' " Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said of Helus" actions shortly before his death.

"They felt he might be suffering from PTSD, the fact he was a veteran and had been in the Corps", Dean said. He declined to engage in questions on whether the nation needs stricter gun control laws.

Dan Manrique, 33, was a Marine veteran.

"I can assume he has some sort of mental issue, because no normal person would commit such an outrageous act and murder innocent people", Kuredjia said.

People gather to pray for the victims of the mass shooting during a candlelight vigil in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Nov. 8, 2018.

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

Long was a former US marine and neighbours said he was possibly suffering from PTSD.

"It would start and then it would stop and then it would get really loud and I hear this shouting".

A short time later, just before 10 a.m., he received the news he said would forever change his life.

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

The tragedy stunned a community that is annually listed as one of the safest cities in America. Associated Press writers Rebecca Boone in Boise, Idaho, and Christopher Weber in Thousand Oaks, contributed.
