THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- 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, the Marine who survived both shootings, said that during Wednesday's shooting, he threw two of his friends to the floor and covered them with his body.
Chandler Gunn, 23, told The Los Angeles Times that a friend who survived the Vegas shooting works at the bar.
In Las Vegas and Thousand Oaks, country music fans were the victims.
Kelly has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, which killed 58 people.
