Dominque Colell has come forward with new information about Ian Long, the author of the latest mass shooting in America.
The Borderline Bar & Grill shooting in Thousand Oaks left 13 dead including the gunman, who viciously opened fire at innocent people.
Ian Long took the life of 12 people after entering the packed bar in Thousand Oaks, California, on what was billed as “college night.”
The lone gunman opened fire late Wednesday night with a .45-caliber handgun. Below find the full list of his victims.
In recent updates it’s been revealed Long, was born March 27, 1990 –the 28-year-old was a veteran in the Marine Corps who served in Afghanistan.
The shooter had previous encounters with local police. The sheriff said a mental health crisis team was called at that time and concluded that Long did not need to be taken into custody.
The other prior encounters were a traffic accident and an incident when he was the victim of a battery at a different bar.
Turns out, he also attacked former track coach, Dominique Colell. According to Colell herself, she worked as a high school track coach for Newbury Park High School –when her then student, Ian Long began screaming at her and lunged at her groping her stomach and her ****.
Colell says she was trying to figure out who was the owner of a cellphone she had found when Long began screaming at her. Colell says she pushed him off and got him off the team. The next day Ian showed up with flowers and begged her to let him back onto the team.
According to Colell, the high school knew about Long’s strange and often erratic behavior and did nothing because it would’ve interfere with his future with the Marine Corps.
