A survivor of the Las Vegas shooting massacre a year ago was killed in Wednesday's shooting at a popular Southern California country bar. Last night police said they had not found a motive for the mass shooting, although some reports claimed that Long was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, having served in Afghanistan.

United States media said a number of the young people who were at the bar rampage in California on Wednesday night had survived that massacre.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said that deputies found that Long was "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally" and called a mental health specialist, who concluded that Long couldn't be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation. 'The windows broke and I just hopped out the window and I was one of the last people out, ' Campbell said. The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a veteran sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer through the door.

Authorities believe the gunman, Ian David Long, ultimately killed himself.

Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF), in coordination with City of Thousand Oaks, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Amgen Foundation, California Community Foundation, and others, has set up a specific fund to serve this goal. People were trying to get out the window.... Long reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Marine Corps says they, "Extend [their] deepest condolences to the families of the victims in this senseless tragedy". A gunman shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel and casino with high power weapons killed 58 people.

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, described gunman Ian David Long as "a very sick puppy" who had "a lot of problems".

'It's the second time in about a year and a month that this has happened, ' Nick Champion told OnSceneTV. The man is believed to have taken his own life. "He went in to save lives, to save other people", said Sheriff Dean. "If he talks, just acknowledge him, don't go into conversation with him, '" Don MacLeod said.




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 don't know if she is alive", he said.

"Law Enforcement and First Responders, together with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are on scene".

In it, the writer says: "I hope people call me insane..."

The video follows Knapp as he runs from the bar, calling to people to get away from the area.

"I'm super upset that it happened in our home, and I feel bad for the families that have to go through this", said Merrill, the exhaustion evident in her eyes.

"He's a tactician so I have no doubt he employed the best tactics possible", he said. He told the dispatcher he was outside an entrance with two California Highway Patrol officers. "He looked like he knew what he was doing".

The mother of one of the 12 victims of Wednesday's mass shooting at a southern California bar demanded gun control in the wake of her son's death.
