Thousand Oaks Shooting; No Blame Needed
No blame needed.
Just knowing its the human condition.
There is hope.
May you find Him now.
UPDATE (10 am PT)
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) – Using a smoke bomb and a handgun, a hooded gunman dressed all in black opened fire during “college night” at a country music bar in Southern California, killing 12 people and sending hundreds fleeing in terror, authorities said Thursday. The gunman then apparently killed himself.
Authorities said the motive for the attack Wednesday night was under investigation.
The killer was identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former Marine.
Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said his department had several previous contacts with Long, including a call to his home in April, when deputies found him angry and acting irrationally. The sheriff said a mental health crisis team was called at the time and concluded Long did not need to be taken into custody.
As the story continues developing more will be added.
America needs to pray. We need to pray for the protection of people wherever they are, synagogues, churches, malls, restaurants and wherever else
they congregate. We must also acknowledge the courageous efforts of law
enforcement and other first responders. pic.twitter.com/1HnYTsO7DN
