‘You freeze,’ witness describes Thousand Oaks shooting scene

A witness to the California nightclub shooting describes the scene when gunshots rang out, killing 12 people.

The shooter, apparently firing at random, also died in the rampage. Police said they have identified the gunman but did not give out a name.

Authorities said the gunfire broke out at the Borderline Bar & Grill, a country-western dance bar in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. Hundreds of people fled in terror, including some who used bar stools to break windows and escape.

“It’s a horrific scene in there,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told a news conference in the parking lot of the bar. “There’s blood everywhere.”

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press the suspect was 29 years old, armed with a .45-caliber handgun and used a smoke device. The official declined to provide any other details, speaking on condition of anonymity for lack of authorization to publicly discuss the investigation.

Dean said it was not immediately clear how the gunman died.

    Why do all the mass shooting witnesses look so scripted, she’s not even shaken up. Wiping away tears that’s aren’t there. That’s always a trade mark of these witnesses they always wipe away tears that aren’t there. Also anyone who’s ever heard real gun shots and firecrackers will tell you they don’t sound anything alike. Gun shots have a very distinct sound not like a crack at all

    How do you like your gun rights Cali? Shit like this still happens even with your bullshit restrictions, and criminals like the coward who did this will always get the weapons to do so, you guys just have less to defend yourself with. Hopefully Texas always stays free. I need to buy more semi rifles. And fast

    So the girl in the pink is very relaxed for such a traumatic event. The girl in the blue is also not emotionally connected to what she is trying to portray. Her neck is relaxed, her eyes are normal except for when she tries to squeeze a tear out of one eye. No tremble in the voice. People (military as well as civilian) who witness surprising traumas like these display mannerisms that are within the Fight or Flight response.
