VIDEO: Bar shooting witness says 11 in her group, and ‘we haven’t found half of them yet’
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by LA Times:
Witnesses said there were hundreds of people in the bar at the time of the shooting. Teylor Whittler, 19, said she was there to help celebrate a friend’s 21st birthday. She said she initially heard what sounded like firecrackers. Then she saw a man with a gun.
She said her group included 11 people. “We haven’t found half of them yet,” she said.
The article goes on to state the following:
Her father kept Whittler company. He said he got a call at about 11:20 p.m. from an unknown number. It was his daughter. “There’s been a shooting, I’m ok. I’m hiding in the hills,” she said.
“I got dressed and was up here in about 10 minutes,” Chris Valenzano said. “I think there’s more anger than anything else. The fact that it happened so close to home, that definitely hurt.”
Officers took his daughter’s shirt when she walked out because it was covered in blood, he said.
“She has no idea whose,” Valenzano said.

Saddest moment of California shooting this morning, for me, is the father of 19-year-old Teylor Whittler saying she survived because she did ‘exactly what we trained her to do.’ Imagine that being a thing you have to do as a father?

Taylor Whittler, who was also there, was dragged out of the bar by a stranger. She said she saw the man pulling the trigger repeatedly. Her parents pulled up as she was being patched up by an EMT. Her mother looked panicked as she thought for a moment Taylor had been shot.
