Thousand Oaks must be a pretty small town if it can fit next to a freeway.

/stay safe everyone

It's sounding really bad. Reports of dozens shot, officer shot multiple times and in critical condition, shooter still on the loose, believed to be still inside the building. Sounds like it was planned - shooter threw smoke grenades and took out the security guard first. Described as middle-eastern-looking with a long beard, dressed in black.

Man, this guy getting interviewed is beating himself up. I'm sorry dude--you did what you had to do to survive. Love you, man.

I'm not liking these interviews at the scene - these people are obviously in shock.

Officers were advised that the suspect was a Middle Eastern man in his early 20s wearing all black clothing and with a beard.


Fox News: "FINALLY!"

All clear appears to have been given. Guessing the suspect is down.
 
2018-11-08 03:34:20 AM  
Yeesh. Wife and family went line dancing there a little while ago, only reason I've heard of it but the news alert had me double take. It feels weird to have an "active shooter" situation in LA like this when there's so many on the news every night.

Who cares. This is a normal part of America.

Sounds like a robbery, not a shoot to kill incident.
 
2018-11-08 03:37:41 AM  
Place has easy freeway access 1/2 block away.  Calling robbery.

Stop shooting people, you assholes.

Police reported that a California Highway Patrol officer had engaged a suspect.

Had this thought when the first witness they interviewed said something about the gunman pointing at the cash register, and the fact that he apparently shot one of the cashiers. If you're trying to shoot a lot of people, I don't know why you would throw smoke bombs, which would obscure your own view as much as everybody else. But, it's a weird thing for a lone person to try to rob a place that's that full of people.

If only the officer had an armed guard, he wouldn't have been shot.

Stay safe (if you can, these days) everyone.

And looks like it has been somewhat effective, (despite the ease in bringing guns over state borders) as he only had access to a handgun.

Too early to say if this was white or nonwhite terrorism. Stay tuned to this channel.
 
2018-11-08 03:55:09 AM  
Sounds like the shooter had high-capacity magazines. Black trenchcoat. A new witness who seems to have been farther away from the shooter than the original witnesses described him as either white or Hispanic.

Yet another isolated incident. Can we please start rolling out some decent gun laws now that the Democrats have the House? How about we limit ammo sales? Or at least anything that can mow down people by the dozen in two seconds?

Until they find him, if they do, I'd be wary of putting labels on him. Wearing a fake beard could be part of a disguise/ escape plan. Just because a witness said he looked middle-eastern doesn't make it so.
 
2018-11-08 04:06:06 AM  
this is almost becoming normal.

as an aside, if we're in that whole 'john titor' timeline, I need to get my ass down to florida and start looking for that smarmy little bastard before he jumps in that gotdamn time machine.

CNN now running a press conference that is supposed to be bringing us up to date, but all I'm hearing is purple monkey dishwasher. Sounds like at least six injured and no one has any idea if anyone was killed or how many. At least six injured only tells me that more than five people needed a band aid or emergency surgery or a toe tag. Maddening.

Didn't he explicitly state his machine could only travel in time, not space? Among *everything else*, that's a good reason not to believe his words, b/c he'd travel back.. into the middle of the empty void.

There was one body outside apparently, the news noted they hadn't covered then but nobody was giving aid, so probably a fatality.

My 22 yo parties the LA club circuit and being alerted by NBCLA at 1045 HST that there is another club shooting is the worst anxiety I've ever experienced.

I hope they bring that asshole in alive.

Lovely. This sounds like it could be nasty enough to even be remembered in a couple of months.

Why yes, I am feeling bitter and jaded. Why do you ask?

They've shown one dead body outside.  There is a major trauma center nearby, so hopefully the wounded will make it.

I saw one guy they were doing CPR on there at the front door. Looked like he was not going to make it and there was a body along the front of the building they marked and left alone. Looks like someone was shot and fled then collapsed maybe 30 ft from the door.   So I'm pretty sure there's 2 deaths.

Here comes the science

So yeah, it works. We just have a huge population.
22 million in Southern California
In the LA metro area it's 18,788,800

So violence may sound high, but we have a huge population.

Gun restrictions in relatively small areas of the country don't matter when every other area around them continues to be lackadaisical with the sheer oversaturation of firearms in this country. It's why gun control keeps 'failing' in America. . . Either through sheer obstinance or apathy, a persistent gun culture is refusing to acknowledge that America's gun problem is so big and unwieldy, that it can't help but affect all of us, even areas that are actively trying to do something about it. In other words, that whole "if they really wanted to kill somebody, they'd find a way," is a self-fulfilling prophecy, because the kind of people who keep chanting that are adamantly refusing to stop providing easy access to murder-tools.

Ugh. I've got my back to the television because of where my desk is. Great way to spend time at work in the middle of the night.
