Grief in California - mourning the Thousand Oaks massacre victims

Twelve Dead After Mass Shooting At California Bar's College Student Night

While the others became two-time survivors, Orfanos died.

So far, 328 people have died and 1251 have been injured as a result of mass shootings - incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed - in the USA in 2018. "It's just unreal", his friend Aliza Thomas said Friday.

"He was raving hell in the house, you know, kicking holes in the walls and stuff and one of the neighbours was concerned and called the police", Richard Berge, who lived one block away from the home, said. Orfanos liked to focus on the positive.

His mother, Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, vented her anger yesterday. "Pass gun control so no one else has a child that doesn't come home". "I don't want thoughts".

"And the two words I want you to write are: Gun control", she added.

Dani Merrill, who survived both Vegas and Borderline, was among mourners at a packed theatre Thursday honouring Orfanos and the others who lost their lives in the shooting at the bar.

"I can assume he has some sort of mental issue, because no normal person would commit such an outrageous act and murder innocent people", Kuredjia said. "That was the last thing I said".

"The chills go up your spine".

"It was really hard to get him to smile", he said. Her aunt, Patricia Sparks, said that Noel was an "all-around good girl". Then he got a look at the shooter and the terror unfolding and decided they needed to escape.

Long made others feel uncomfortable going back to his teens.

Ventura County Sheriff Sergeant Ron Helus was one of the first to respond to the shooting.

"Our hearts ache today for the victims of this heinous act and our deepest condolences are with the Thousand Oaks community and those who lost friends and loved ones". The Last Vegas shooter targeted a crowd of country music fans gathered for the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Terrified patrons scrambled for the exits after the gunman started shooting a handgun in the Borderline Bar and Grill around 11:20 PM on Wednesday before killing himself, they said.

"It is our home", he said.

Echoing Orfanos' plea for action from USA lawmakers who have for far too long allowed the gun lobby to restrain meaningful steps against America's uniquely deadly gun problem, one woman from Thousand Oaks asked a question on the mind of every concerned citizen: "How many more times is this going to happen?"

Police said hundreds were inside when the shooting occurred. "Everywhere I go, everything I do is affected", he said.

"Your Second Amendment rights are under siege but they will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president", Trump said at the National Rifles Association (NRA) annual meeting in the convention center in Dallas. You're always picking up on social cues. "You're always overanalyzing people, trying to figure out if something were to go down, 'What would I do?"' Kelly said he'll be looking to God for comfort in the coming weeks and months.

Deputy Sgt. Ron Helus went into the bar with another highway patrol officer after they received calls about the shooting. "I'm here for a reason".
