USA Today property so headline and link only.
Other reports state suspect is a Middle Eastern male in his twenties with a long beard who shot a security guard then threw smoke grenades then kept firing. Used a "big handgun" according to a witness on ABC7 in Los Angeles.
Shooter: Ian Long
..... Perps name is “David Ian Long” ..... Might want to get screencaps of his social media pages in the event that they are scrubbed and replaced.
One of the early tweets by a local ABC reporter stated this:
ABC7 Eyewitness News Retweeted
7h7 hours ago
Just spoke with a man who was at the front door of the bar when the shooter began firing. Says he had a handgun, shot the guard at the door, threw several smoke bombs inside, and then continued firing. Described shooter as middle eastern looking with a beard.
More to come
Since then, I haven’t seen any mention of the shooter’s appearance (as opposed to his clothing) on Fox, Daily Mail (UK), or any other site. The MSM is once again trying to sanitize the message. Remember how quickly they reported the identity of the National Socialist who shot up the Pittsburgh Synagogue.
Witnesses have said many people at the bar also attended the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas in October 2017, where 58 people were killed and 851 were injured during the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
what are the odds?
..... Being reported that shooter drove his mother’s car to the venue. I’m thinking possible ANTIFA Creep?
White guy and not middle easterner, heavily tattooed per a report read. Would believe with the elapsed time most social media is gone but thats my opinion. Hope am wrong
Interesting Twitter and I think Gab had a picture of a Caucasian Moslim with a Muslim name, but he could have been Ian Long at one time.
Posts have disappeard from both sites.
I never saw that, all reports that he was middle eastern were internet rumours that turned out to be bollocks.
Maybe the key to what took place came from the President when he typed that he had been fully briefed over an hour ago. This shooting went to the top quickly
UK source saying shooter was marine (ex) with PTSD. ??
#LIVE: Neighbors are saying David Ian Long was a veteran who suffered from PTSD, “I have no idea what he was doing with a gun”
If this turns out to be true, the layers of tragedy are compounded.
Per LEO press conference, he is an ex US Marine.
confirmed via law enforcement live presser just now
Not Middle Eastern; that was Fake News
Flashback to the 70's, 'oh my gerd, it's a crazy ass veteran'. Now come the calls to disarm all veterans that might have 'gasp' PTSD or whatever the psych industry considers PTSD these days. Veterans day weekend now has a meme to trigger some protests.
” Being reported that shooter drove his mothers car to the venue. Im thinking possible ANTIFA Creep?”
It certainly crossed my mind.
Disgruntle ex-Marine*, feels like he was fighting wars for the profit of corporations, comes home to a crappy civilian life, decides to fight the “plutocracy”. Joins ANTIFA and attacks a country music dance as his first target.
*(I know there is never such a thing)
