The POS who murdered 12 people at the Borderline Bar in Southern California has been identified as a 28-year-old Marine veteran. He was known to authorities and allegedly suffering from PTSD, although some say his behavior was “off” prior to his time in the military.
In April this year, deputies were called to the home he shared with his mother after neighbors heard loud crashes coming from inside.
He was acting ‘irrationally’ and was ‘irate’ so police called in their mental health specialist but they cleared him, deciding against having him committed.
Neighbors told DailyMail.com on Thursday that his mother Colleen was ‘terrified’ he was going to harm himself or others, and that they believed Long suffered from PTSD – though some said that Long’s behavior was odd even before his military service.
But enough about him. Who REALLY matters here? The victims and their families. They didn’t deserve this.
One of the victims has been identified as Telemachus Orfanos. He was a survivor of the Las Vegas massacre.
Telemachus Orfanos, 27, was a U.S. Navy veteran with a thick beard, an easy smile and a gladiator helmet tattoo. He was among a dozen people killed in a shooting at a country music bar in Southern California on Wednesday. https://t.co/GfnoY4V14g

Telemachus Orfanos was among those killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself.
Like others who gathered at Borderline for country music night regularly, Orfanos was a survivor of the October 1, 2017 shooting massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, where 58 died and hundreds were injured.
Orfanos, an Eagle Scout who had served in the Navy, was working at the bar when he was killed.
Other victims inside the bar included: Sean Adler, 48; Cody Coffman 22; Blake Dingman, 23; Jake Dunham, 21; Alaina Housley, 18; Justin Meek, 23; Daniel Manrique; Kristina Morisette; Telemachus Orfanos; and Noel Sparks.
Long then shot sheriff’s sergeant Ron Helus, a 54-year-old, 29-year veteran who was one of the first on the scene. He died in the hospital of multiple gunshot wounds.
Many others were injured.
It’s just all so awful. I can’t even wrap my head around it.
