What we know about the gunman in the Thousand Oaks bar shooting

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.

Among those outside the hospital was Ellen Rivera, who said she had survived the October 2017 slaughter of 58 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas - the worst mass shooting in US history.

'All I did was grab as many people as I could and pull them underneath the table until I heard a break in the shots, and then we got people out of there, as much as we could, ' he added. This time, gunfire claimed a Navy veteran who had lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history a year ago.

Alaina Housley, 18 - one of the victims in the Thousand Oaks shooting. "The second time around doesn't get any easier".

At about 11:30pm Wednesday, a male shooter, 28-year-old Ian David Long, shot the bouncer outside the Borderline Bar and Grill and entered. "You don't think it's real - again", he said.

The officer who was killed in Thousand Oaks told his wife he loved her before running in to confront the gunman at the Borderline Bar and Grill Wednesday night. "It's something that I wish I was OK to do, but unfortunately I can't, so that's why I'm making sure that he gets remembered", King said. "I don't want prayers". "I thought I was passionate about this cause and about gun control before, but until it happens to you".

"I look up - the security guard is dead". Long is also accused of shooting a young woman working at the counter just inside the door, several witnesses said. Two of his friends were among those killed.

One college student who said he was a regular at the Borderline told NBC Los Angeles he had at least 10 friends inside. When Gunn learned about the shooting, he rushed to Borderline.

He said that there are at least "six victims including one deputy" who are still inside the bar.

"I was going to go with them tonight but decided not to because of homework", she told CNN, "but it is a popular place to go because it's local, and we do have a lot of people from the South - it's line dancing it attracts them".

"I can't believe I'm saying this again", Molly Maurer posted on Facebook. The only thing I that could have wished for is to have something better than a bar stool, ' he said.

Shocked bystanders are treated at the scene in Thousand Oaks, California. The bar was hosting its weekly "College Country Night" when the incident was reported around 11.20 pm. On his other arm Thursday, he still had his wristband from the California bar. "He went in to save lives, to save other people". "There was an exit right next to me, so I went through that". "I'm alive and I'm home safe".

"His life was about going above and beyond", she said.

"Sgt. Helus will be transported via motorcade from Los Robles Hospital to westbound Janss Road", the department said in a statement.
