Thousand Oaks shooting victim, survivors lived through Vegas massacre

Police identified the gunman as Ian Long, a 28-year-old former Marine who is one of the 12 dead.

"I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military", Tom Hanson said Thursday, as federal and local law enforcement officers searched Long's house, where an American flag flew over the garage.

According to Ventura County Sheriff's Captain Garo Kuredjian, this is based on the time stamp on the messages. Kuredjian said he didn't know the content of any posts. "We've removed the shooter's accounts from Facebook and Instagram and will remove any praise or support for the crime or the shooter as soon as we're aware".

Authorities haven't named all the victims of the attack. None of those injured was hurt by gunfire, authorities said. A gunman shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel and casino with high power weapons killed 58 people.

New details surrounding the Thousand Oaks shooting that left twelve people dead reveal that it was possibly a revenge killing for Ian David Long.

Long made others feel uncomfortable going back to his teens. "I don't know whose phone it is, '" Colell recounted. A video shows her shaking with rage as she pleads for gun control. Gunn said his friend, whose name he didn't provide, escaped safely out the back.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents leave Long's house in Newbury Park, Calif., Thursday.

"Love, thoughts and prayers to all of them", she said.

The Marine Corps said Long earned several awards, including a Combat Action Ribbon and a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal. This kid was mentally disturbed in high school. "The fire is literally so close to exploding into an area that is massively populated".

More than 200,000 people have fled in Ventura County and in Malibu in Los Angeles County due to the Woolsey Fire, officials said. Two people were arrested in looting incidents Friday during the evacuations, according to Ventura County sheriff's Sgt.

"I don't want prayers".

Investigators have not commented on a motive for the shooting, or whether mental illness played a role.

As we reported, Long served in Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011 as a decorated member of the Marines.

The incident happened in April, when yelling and loud banging noises coming from the home Long shared with his mother prompted a next-door neighbour to call authorities. Armed with a knife in case an attacker came in, he hunkered down and waited with 40 other people for four hours.

The gunman who killed 12 people in Thousand Oaks, California, on Wednesday night stopped to post about his sanity on social media while conducting the attack.

Chandler Gunn, 23, told The Los Angeles Times that a friend who survived the Vegas shooting works at the bar. I don't want thoughts.

She said she wanted Congress "to pass gun control so no one else has a child that doesn't come home".

Hundreds gathered Thursday night to remember those who lost their lives in Wednesday night's shooting at Borderline Bar & Grill.
