The Borderline Bar & Grill could be counted on for a good time.

Alexis Tait, who lost a friend in the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill cries with Rachel Berg.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow said Thursday.

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety.

"The chills go up your spine".

"It makes me think about going out now", King said.

But last night, as Tel was sharing a drink with friends at Borderline Bar in the California town of Thousand Oaks, he became involved in another mass shooting - and this time, the gunman would claim his life. "There's a fence right there so I said, 'Everyone get over the fence as quickly as you can.' And I followed them over". "I don't want thoughts", his mother, Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, said earlier.

The police officer was injured when he arrived at the scene with colleagues and "attempted to neutralize the threat", Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said. Some piled on top of one another as others slammed bar stools against windows to break them. "Maybe the ego got the better of me but it took only one time for a 19-year-old D-2 athlete to talk down to me and tell me how to do my job that I realized this wasn't the career I wanted to head".

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that authorities have identified the gunman. Two of his friends were among those killed.

The distraught father rushed to the bar after hearing news of the shooting and calls to his son's cellphone went unanswered. He and his then-wife said they had no children and owned no property.

"His whole plan was to see the world and get leadership experience, and he was able to do that in those four years [in the Corps]", Pieper told Task & Purpose.

"Sister Sister" actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband said their 18-year-old niece Alaina Housely, a student at nearby Pepperdine University, was also among those killed. "I'm alive and home safe", she said on Facebook.

Orfanos' social media indicates he attended the local Thousand Oaks High School and Moorepark College.

The bar's website says its hosts "College Country Night" every Wednesday. Their ages range from 18 to 33 - a reflection of the crowd drawn to the "College Country Night" at the bar.

Survivors of the Las Vegas shooting regularly gathered in the Borderline bar for country music night as a way of offering mutual support and healing.

"It's a gun culture", California's Democratic Gov. -elect Gavin Newsom lamented Thursday.

He praised the murdered officer, a close friend, as a hero, saying: "He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price". "Fortunately it helped save a lot of lives that they fled the scene so rapidly", he said. It was the worst mass-shooting in US history.

"I said we go, and we ran", he said. You're always picking up on social cues.

'I love you. I love you.

Tel was one of the 12 people killed in the Borderline Bar shooting.

Kelly said he'll be looking to God for comfort in the coming weeks and months.

"Even though I'll never be as comfortable again in that kind of setting, whether it's concerts, clubs, bars, anything where there's a big group of people in any kind of confined space, I'm never going to be as comfortable again", Champion said in the Billboard article. I know he was put in my life for a reason.
