Las Vegas shooting survivors among victims in Thousand Oaks massacre

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (WJTV) - Many who were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif. during the shooting Wednesday night, were survivors of the Las Vegas mass shooting one-year-ago, according to CBS News.


Twenty-seven-year-old Telemachus Orfanos was among those fired-upon in Las Vegas, where he survived, and was again fired upon at the recent southern California mass shooting, but this time he was shot and killed.

Orfanos’ mother, Susan, cried in anger Thursday, as she told CBS News she was sick of “prayers” and “thoughts.”

“He didn't come home last night," Susan said. "I don't want prayers. I don't want thoughts. I want gun control and I hope to God nobody else sends me any more prayers. I want gun control. No more guns."

The 12 people whose lives were cut short on Wednesday ranged in age from 18 to 48-years-old.
