Ian David Long, 28 years old, is the shooter who killed 12 people on Wednesday at the Borderline Bar and Grill in California
Shocking video of the Borderline Bar shooting has emerged because it reveals that one of the many survivors of Las Vegas who were in the bar belonged to the 12 killed people.
The nauseating video shows ex-navy Ian Michael Long, 28, who stalks the Borderline Bar and Grill at Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday morning, after which he fires after a shot.
Haze of smoke grenades that long ago disoriented the victims fills the air, and the bar is eerily silent, except for the sound of the shots of a Glock .45 caliber pistol with an extensive magazine.
I looked into his eyes while he killed my friends & # 39 ;, wrote the witness who made the video on Instagram. I hope he will rot in hell forever. The man you see is the killer and the shots shoot at people trying to get out of the windows. & # 39;
Telemachus Orfanos was one of those who were killed before the gunman aimed the weapon at himself.
Like others who regularly came to Borderline for country music night, Orfanos was a survivor of the massacre on October 1, 2017 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, where 58 people died and hundreds were injured.
Orfanos, an Eagle Scout who had served in the navy, worked at the bar when he was killed.

Other victims in the bar were: Sean Adler, 48; Cody Coffman 22; Blake Dingman, 23; Jake Dunham, 21; Alaina Housley, 18; Justin Meek, 23; Daniel Manrique; Kristina Morisette; Telemachus Orfanos; and Noel Sparks.
Long after, the sergeant shot Ron Helus, a 54-year-old, 29-year-old veteran who was one of the first on the scene. He died in the hospital of multiple gunshot wounds.
Between 10 and 15 people stay in the hospital, some with serious injuries. The mayor has called on blood donations.
Survivors used bar stools to break windows to climb out and some hid under pool tables. A woman ran into the kitchen and was told by the staff that they had to climb a ladder to the attic.
Before SWAT teams entered the building, Long took his own life in an office inside. He used a legally purchased .45 caliber pistol to carry out the attack and modified his magazine so that it could keep more rounds.
Lange served in the marines as a machine gunman for five years between 2008 and 2013, during which time he was decorated with 10 medals and toured Afghanistan.
Long was a machine shooter in the Marine Corps and served until 2013 when he received an honorable discharge. He was deployed once in Afghanistan and received 10 standard delivery medals during his service

Dozens of survivors of last year's Vegas Las Vegas massacre, killing 59 people tragically, also attended the shooting on Wednesday in California.
& # 39; It's the second time in about a year and a month that this happened & # 39 ;, said Nick Champion to OnSceneTV. I was photographing on Las Vegas route 91, as well as probably 50 or 60 others at the same time as I was in the building tonight. & # 39;
Champion and his friends were in Borderline Bar and Grill country bar for student night on Wednesday, when ex-navy Ian Long (29) burst in and shot dead 12 before he turned the weapon on himself.
He and other Las Vegas survivors regarded Borderline as a "place of healing"; and gathered in the same bar for a memorial on a student night earlier this year. The survivors group posed for a Borderline sign while holding a Route 91 Harvest banner.
& # 39; It is important to us. We are all a big family and unfortunately this family has been hit twice, & Champion said.

Witnesses and survivors comfort each other as they stand near the stage of the shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill at Thousand Oaks, California, last night
The traumatic experience of Wednesday is only too well known for those who have survived the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas.
The shooting on 1 October 2017 killed 59 people and is the worst in American history.
Gunman Stephen Paddock opened the fire through the windows of his suite at the hotel in Mandalay Bay, which overlooks the country music festival – an event that attracted much of the same audience as Borderline.
& # 39; Many people in the Route 91 situation go here & # 39 ;, Chandler Gunn told the Los Angeles Times. & # 39; There are people who lead a lifetime without seeing this, and then there are people who have seen it twice. & # 39;
Katie Ray, 25, told the Huffington Post that she survived the Vegas shots with her fiancée she had met at Borderline.
Ray, who has been visiting the Borderline since 2014, described the bar as & # 39; a place of healing & # 39; for the group of survivors of Vegas.
In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, Champion said he and some 30 to 40 survivors gathered for a concert in Borderline the Friday after the Las Vegas shooting.
& # 39; That was rough. That was when it really sank – you have that realization that even if you do normal things, it will not necessarily feel normal or will be normal, "he said. & # 39; A large group of us hung out at one of the exits, where you go through the kitchen and you can get out when needed. & # 39;
