Long was identified by police on Thursday as the gunman who killed 12 people and injured more than a dozen more in a sudden spree of violence at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks.

"He would close the garage and be playing music and dancing in there, like sweating".

But on Wednesday night, a night specifically created to lure young, college age patrons into the venue, that is the horrifying scene that unfolded at the bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Thousand Oaks was considered the third-safest city in the USA this year, according to Niche, an online company that provides data on neighborhoods, companies and schools.

Numerous victims of the Las Vegas shooting had traveled to the country music festival from Southern California and several had connections to Thousand Oaks.

"He was raving hell in the house, you know, kicking holes in the walls and stuff and one of the neighbors was concerned and called the police", Richard Berge, who lived one block away from the home, told Reuters.

"The chills go up your spine. You don't think it's real - again", he said.

"He was killed last night at Borderline", his mother, Susan Orfanos, told The New York Times. She said everyone yelled "Get down!" and then it was silent for a few seconds. I want gun control.

Housley's Facebook page says she is from Napa, Calif., and photos on the site include several pictures of her surrounded by a group of friends at what appears to be her graduation from Vintage High School.

He said the shooter entered and turned to the door counter and coat check area before eventually working his way to the bar. "I saw the security guard was down and he had been shot".

After the shooting was over, Kelly said he and another Marine friend helped victims alongside first responders. Two of his friends were among those killed.

Edgar told the Times he had not been able to reach all his friends. When Gunn learned about the shooting, he rushed to Borderline.

Neighbours said Thursday they would hear loud, aggressive fights between the two.

'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. Many of those at the bar were regulars, she said.

Borderline Bar was hosting a popular college country night event when the shooting happened Wednesday night.

People comfort each other as they stand near the scene, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people. Even still, 12 people were killed in the mass shooting. On his other arm Thursday, he still had his wristband from the California bar.

"My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends and he came home".

"I saw someone throw a bar stool through the window and I followed suit and I threw a bar stool through the window and we just pushed people towards the bar, so that they weren't in the direct line of sight of him and then just filed as many people, everyone that was there, out through that back window", he explained.

"I would make fun of him, because he would drag me there".

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Dean, who was set to retire on Friday. "I don't sit in a room with my back to the door". Thousands of people stood along the route.

Kelly said he'll be looking to God for comfort in the coming weeks and months. "I'm here for a reason".
