"Need Gun Control, Not Prayers": Mother Of California Bar Shooting Victim

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

Previous year a country music festival called Route 91 in Las Vegas was the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern United States history.

Authorities said the motive for the attack Wednesday night was under investigation.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean revealed that police had contact with Long over the years, as he was a victim of a battery at a local Thousand Oaks bar and was involved in two traffic accidents. "My son thought it was a joke, so I pulled him down and got some cover", the man said.

Fellow officers from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office described 54-year-old Sergeant Helus - who died from his injuries in hospital - as an "exceptional friend and man".

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.

The media also reported that in 2016, Californians voted to close a legal loophole that allows gun owners to possess high-capacity magzines such as the one used by the shooter on Wednesday.

"We probably pushed 30 or 35 people through that window", he said. A gunman shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel and casino with high power weapons killed 58 people.

The 27-year-old attempted to get on the end of a cross from the right, but fell awkwardly on his ankle. Iwobi was also quick to praise Sporting Lisbon for their efforts in the game.

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in toilets and the attic of the bar.

On Thursday, Facebook spokeswoman Sarah Pollack said: "Our hearts are with the victims and families affected by this horrendous act".

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 apparently took his own life, the sheriff said. About four minutes after arriving on the scene and after hearing shots fired inside, he went through the front door and was hit multiple times, Dean said. "If he talks, just acknowledge him, don't go into conversation with him, '" Don MacLeod said Thursday.

Nick Steinwender, Cal Lutheran student body president, told KTLA-TV he immediately started receiving messages about the shooting, and he and his roommate went to the scene to offer rides back to campus or moral support. "I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military".

While the horror washes over all of us, many from around the region and around the country are leaping into action to support the victims, families, law enforcement community and organizations providing first and second line support.

"He gave his all and tonight as I told his wife he died a hero because he went in to save lives". He told the dispatcher he was outside an entrance with two California Highway Patrol officers. "More. Guns", she told ABC7 news. "Then he shot the cashier, just a young girl". First thing I said was, "please don't drink and drive". "It looked like he knew what he was doing".

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.
