"We All Just Trampled", California Bar Shooting Survivor Recalls

  • At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

People comfort each other as they sit near the scene Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, California where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people.

Witnesses said that some of those at the bar had survived the massacre in Las Vegas just over a year ago when a man shot 58 people dead at a country music festival.

He said the shooter entered and turned to the door counter and coat check area before eventually working his way to the bar. "We have no idea what the motive was at this point", Dean said. The marine corps told news organizations that Long served in Afghanistan between November 2010 and June 2011.

"He died tonight going in to try to save others and paid the ultimate sacrifice", Dean said.

"The mental health experts out there cleared him that day", Dean told reporters Thursday, though they were concerned he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of his military service. Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long.

Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said lawmakers would get to work on legislation including universal background checks when the House of Representatives convenes in January with a Democratic majority. The sheriff believes Dean took his own life.

One officer said it had been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks.

Mr Dean said the other prior encounters were a traffic accident and an incident when he was the victim of a beating at a bar. "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that, and I didn't want to get that close and disturb the scene and possibly disturb the investigation". But Dean said Long had used an extended magazine - illegal in California - during the shooting, which would enable the weapon to fire more rounds before needing to be reloaded.

"Right now as far as we know there was only one handgun, but that could certainly change as we do a more thorough search of the building", the sheriff said.

"I look up - the security guard is dead".

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran, was killed inside.

The police officer was injured when he arrived at the scene with colleagues and "attempted to neutralize the threat", Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said.

Trump ordered US flags to be flown at half-staff at public buildings and grounds.

The venue was hosting a college country night from 9 p.m. PT on Wednesday to 2 a.m. on Thursday when the shooting occurred, according to its website.

Multiple people were seen being led out of the bar by deputies.

"There were people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics", he added.

Thousand Oaks is a wealthy area about 60 kilometers northwest of Los Angeles. "I would open the garage and would be like, 'What are you doing?'"
