USA: 'All I could do was hide' — Thousand Oaks shooting survivor recalls moment of deadly attack

A survivor of Wednesday's shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, recalled how he jumped to the ground to try to save his life when a gunman opened fire against costumers in an incident that left 13 people -including the suspect and a Sheriff's sergeant- killed. «I was sitting on a stool and drinking a drink and then I heard gunshots and I freaked out and I just... I can't walk though... Еще, so all I could do was hide on the ground», said Santos Tecum, who uses crutches. A neighbour, whose daughter frequents the bar, asked: «Haven't we gotten through this two weeks ago? And then what, a couple of weeks before that?» she asked. She followed: «Didn't we just have elections two days ago? Why isn't this important? Why... We have a President that stands up to everybody apparently. Why isn't he standing up to the guns?» Ventura County Sheriff's Office responded to the incident at around 23:30 (07:30 GMT) on Wednesday after around 30 shots were fired at the Borderline Bar and Grill where a college country night was taking place.
