A year apart, some country music fans face 2 mass shootings

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Barely a year after surviving a massacre at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Brendan Kelly found himself in a terrifyingly familiar scene.

Kelly says he was dancing with friends at a bar in suburban Los Angeles on Wednesday night when bullets began flying.

Twelve people were killed, including a Navy veteran who had lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history a year ago.

Kelly said Thursday that he heard “pop, pop” and instantly knew it was gunfire at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.

The 22-year-old Marine says he dragged a woman out an emergency exit and applied a tourniquet to his friend’s bleeding arm.

In Vegas, where 58 people died, Kelly said he threw a friend to the ground before helping her escape.
