Young people with ‘so much life ahead’ of them: These are the Thousand Oaks victims

Jason Coffman will miss the fishing trips with his first-born son, his companionship on the baseball diamond and the way his younger sons looked up to Cody Coffman, one of 12 people killed at a country-western bar in Thousand Oaks, California. 

“I cannot believe it’s happened in my family,” Jason Coffman, 41, told reporters shortly after learning Cody had not survived the shooting massacre at the Borderline Bar and Grill. “I am speechless and heartbroken … My life has changed now forever.”

Authorities still haven’t named all the victims in the attack, which occurred Wednesday night at the bar about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. Police said the gunman, identified as Ian David Long, opened fired inside the country-western dance bar with a Glock 21 .45-caliber handgun, killing at least 11 victims at the scene.

A Ventura County Sheriff’s deputy later died from his injuries after confronting the shooter. Long was also found dead inside the establishment.
