Ms Colell said she wanted to kick Long off the team but the boy's coach urged her to reconsider because that could compromise his goal of joining the Marines.

Authorities said he had no criminal record, but in April officers were called to his home, where deputies found him angry and acting irrationally.

About 18 months ago, Don and Effie MacLeod heard "an very bad argument" and what he believes was a gunshot from the Longs' property. He felt compelled to comfort victims of Wednesday night's shooting and show his support but the pain from his wounds so long ago is still fresh.

"All of a sudden we heard the "bang, bang" of the gunshots and it just started going insane and people were pushing".

'He reloaded and then just kept on popping them off, ' said Tim, John's stepdad.

Thousand Oaks, a leafy, sprawling suburb, was named the third-safest city in the United States for 2018 by the website Niche.
