A man who survived a mass shooting in Las Vegas last year was among those killed in Wednesday's attack at a bar in California.
Telemachus Orfanos, 27, died alongside 11 others when a man opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, north-west of Los Angeles.
He escaped death last year when a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas.
A number of survivors of that shooting, the worst in modern US history, have said they were at the bar on Wednesday.
Mr. Orfanos's mother told ABC News that she does not want prayers or thoughts, but gun control.
