A father broke down and cried uncontrollably as he announced the death of his son who was killed in yesterday’s mass shooting.
The attack carried out at Boarderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday night by Ian Long, 29, left so many families wrecked with a wound that may never heal.
Jason Coffman waited anxiously, standing outside a building where victims of the Thousand Oaks mass shooting were being reunited with family.
It had been several hours since shots broke out at the Borderline Bar & Grill late Wednesday night. Fifty to 60 families gathered at the Thousand Oaks Teen Center in search of missing loved ones.
Jason remembers saying goodbye to his son, Cody, who went to the bar every Wednesday for its “College Country Night.” After hearing of the shooting, he pinged his son’s phone and called him repeatedly.
The father of one of the victims, while announcing the death of his son, sobbed uncontrollably. At some point, he couldn’t speak coherently as he got hiccups while crying.
The heartbroken father said:
Only him and I know, how I loved—how much I miss him…Oh, son, I love you so much.
