He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Third Marine Division in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

"Dan's life was dedicated to serving others, during his military career and beyond", John Pinter, executive director of Team RWB, said in a statement.

So far, 328 people have died and 1251 have been injured as a result of mass shootings - incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed - in the U.S. in 2018. He worked at the bar as a promoter and sang at Disneyland. But from those that we do know, we know that their ages range from 18 to their 30s for patrons of the bar. And he also said that he loved line dancing, which is why he was at the bar.

"Hope has sustained communities, very much like Thousand Oaks, through the exact same triages of mass shootings", said Andy Fox, the city's outgoing mayor.

Jason Coffman sobbed today as he recalled authorities telling him that his oldest son, Cody Coffman, had been killed in the California bar shooting. "You're always overanalyzing people, trying to figure out if something were to go down, 'What would I do?"' Kelly said Borderline had become a safe haven for dozens of Vegas survivors: "It is our home". He was a head umpire for the Pony Baseball League. "He didn't come home last night", Susan Orfanos told CNN affiliate KABC on Thursday.

Danielle Merrill, who survived the shooting in Las Vegas a year ago, told Inside Edition she immediately recognized the sound of the "pop, pop, pop" when the gunman opened fire at Borderline. "He didn't come home last night", Schmidt-Orfanos said. "I don't want prayers, I don't want thoughts, I want gun control and I hope to God nobody else sends me more prayers". "Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought.(exploitive), life is boring so why not?" "He was a really, fun, energetic and loving nephew". "It's hard to sleep after these kinds of things", said Dani Merrill, who lived through the Vegas shooting and escaped the Borderline bloodshed at the bar by running out the loading dock.




"He always tried to convince people to [let him] drive their vehicle". Myers reported from Los Angeles.

Kristina Morisette, 20, worked at Borderline and had just returned home from a trip to Austin, Texas. "I have a daughter coming on the 29th of this month, he was so excited to have his first sister, and now she'll never know". "We want to do the same thing".

"He survived the Vegas massacre previous year where he spent the whole night carrying injured and assisting first responders", Krisilas told USA Today.

The official - who was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity - would not give additional details on what the 28-year-old former Marine posted on his Facebook and Instagram accounts. He would've turned 21 on November 19. "But we are a community of love, of compassion and of unity".

"This is going to be an absolutely heart-wrenching time for me and my family".
