Man Killed In California Mass Shooting Survived 2017 Las Vegas Massacre

  • Emergency services at the scene

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in toilets and the attic of the bar. "Unfortunately, our young people, people at nightclubs, have learned that this may happen".

He and other Las Vegas survivors considered Borderline a "place of healing" and gathered at the same bar for a memorial on a student night earlier this year.

Reports soon emerged that some at Borderline had survived the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest festival in October 2017, when a gunman killed 58 and injured hundreds more in the deadliest shooting in modern USA history.

"He survived Vegas, where a lot more people died than this". At the Borderline on Wednesday, Long was found dead inside an office at the bar.

Kelly said he dragged one woman out of the building through an emergency exit, and, using his belt and a t-shirt, applied a tourniquet to the bleeding arm of a wounded friend.

Cody Coffman was 22. "There were probably 12 shots before I got out the front door".

Thousands of people lined streets in California today and many others pulled over to honour fallen police officer Ron Helus, who was killed yesterday while trying to stop a mass shooting. At least one suffered a nonfatal gunshot wound.

The official - who was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity - would not give additional details on what the 28-year-old former Marine posted on his Facebook and Instagram accounts. He was deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom from November 2010 to June 2011 and completed his service as a corporal.

Daniel Manrique was a Marine Corps veteran who worked for a veterans support organization, Team Red White and Blue.

The sheriff confirmed that Long served in the U.S. Marine Corps. When deputies were called to his house earlier this year, officers made a decision to have a mental health professional evaluate Long. "Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed", he said.

"The mental health experts out there cleared him that day", Dean told reporters Thursday, less than 12 hours after the Wednesday night massacre.

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

Country music prides itself on being the most accessible and familial genre, where superstars are expected to treat fans like friends.

"He knew the risks, but he knew, like we all do, why we serve", Dean said. Pacific time. Chris Brown's "Turn Up the Music" was blaring on the dance floor. "You don't think it's real - again", he said. "I watched the gun".

"Every Marine is trained in urban warfare and indoor gun fighting", said Marc Bender, an instructor for emergency responders in Riverside County, California. I kept getting stomped on.

Julie Hanson, who lives next door to Long's ranch-style home, described him as "odd" and "disrespectful" well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines, becoming a machine-gunner. "He had an extended magazine on it".

Some hid under a pool table as the shooter emptied his gun and then paused to reload. I hear chairs being thrown out the window.

"I looked up, and [the gunman] was moving to the right. You don't know how to feel". "I saw the nearest exit, and I ran out as fast as I could".

Bystander Matt Wennerstrom told KABC that he broke a window with a bar stool to escape the shooting.

"You've got to hurry, you've got to get in there", she urged him.

Helus, 54, is survived by a son and his wife, whom he called before responding to the shooting. "I love you. I'll talk to you later", he told her, according to Sheriff Geoff Dean. On the scene, according to radio traffic obtained by the Daily Beast, he reported finding one person down outside. First thing I said was, "please don't drink and drive". California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times.
