Gunman Who Killed 12 Died from Self-Inflicted Gunshot

The victims were shot and killed late Wednesday by a gunman who opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill, which was holding a weekly country music dance night for college students. "Yeah. I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is "hopes and prayers".or "keep you in my thoughts". REUTERS/Eric Thayer Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation officer await a search warrant outside the home of the suspect in a shooting incident at a Thousand Oaks bar, in Newbury Park, California, U.S. November 8, 2018.

Ventura County Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus, who was on the scene within three minutes after the shooting was reported, was killed in the incident. Before Long is believed to have turned the gun on himself, 12 were killed and 21 were injured in attack.

Ms 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.

"They went to the house, they talked to him".

Witnesses said patrons were in a panic as they tried to escape or hide from the shooter. "He was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally". "Wouldn't that just be a big bowl of irony", Long wrote around the time he carried out the mass shooting. California's "5150" mental health detention law allows for the temporary detention of people with psychiatric issues.

"And I don't want prayers, I don't want thoughts, I want gun control", Schmidt-Orfanos added. "It must have been awful". Investigators have not commented on a motive for the shooting, or whether mental illness played a role.

"I literally feared for myself around him", Colell said in an interview Friday.

But implementation of the ban was blocked by a lawsuit filed by the California Rifle and Pistol Association, the state branch of the National Rifle Association, or NRA, and five Calfornia residents, media reports said. " ... It's hard to fathom, to put into words, what you feel".

A few weeks after the Vegas shooting, the bar held a benefit concert for five people from the area who were killed, and now-eerie social media posts show a number of survivors holding up a "Route 91" sign inside the bar at a six-month anniversary event.

"Hits very close to home, and to Adam and the rest of his family, I know they're grieving a lot now", Hemmer said. "He was the only athlete that I was scared of".
