Many Nashville artists, several of whom previously performed at the venue, posted condolences on social media as soon as they saw the news on Thursday morning.

Orfanos, a Navy veteran, was one of 12 people killed at Borderline Bar & Grill late Wednesday when Marine veteran Ian David Long opened fire at the popular country music nightspot.

Survivors of the Las Vegas shooting say they have used the bar as a place to meet up in recent months.

According to Ventura County Sheriff's Captain Garo Kuredjian, this is based on the time stamp on the messages. "I don't even know what to say. We've removed the shooter's accounts from Facebook and Instagram".

A photo compilation of the victims from the Thousand Oaks shooting on November 7. He first shot a security guard at the front entrance and then deployed smoke bombs inside before opening fire, authorities and witnesses said.

Marc Orfanos said his son was traumatized by the shooting, during which he helped carry severely wounded people out of the kill zone, the Washington Post reported.

"He said, 'hon, I got to go, I love you".

Long made others feel uncomfortable going back to his teens.

The father of a man gunned down in the California bar mass shooting has told of his horror at discovering his son was among the 12 killed.

Long attacked her during a dispute over a cellphone, Colell said.

"He attacked me. He attacked his high school track coach", Colell said. "He was probably the only student that I was actually scared of when I coached there". Colell said she was told that she was ruining Long's future and that the incident could jeopardize his application to the Marines.

Long complained to another coach, who questioned Colell's decision, she recalled. Richard Vargas, 29, said he attended El Modena High School in Orange with Long before he transferred to school in Newbury Park.

A city reeling from the tragedy of a mass shooting was under a siege of a different sort Friday as raging wildfires on both sides of the city forced widespread evacuations and shut down part of the main freeway to town. Thirteen people died, including a sheriff's deputy and the suspected shooter.

As investigators worked to figure out what set him off, President Donald Trump blamed mental illness, describing the gunman as "a very sick puppy" who had "a lot of problems".

At the White House, Trump touted his efforts to fund work on PTSD among veterans. But a mental health specialist who assessed Long after sheriff's deputies responded to a call about his agitated behaviour last spring anxious he might be suffering from PTSD.

Neighbours said they had heard frequent loud fights with his mother and that police were called out in April - though on that occasion mental health experts decided intervention was not needed.
