'You Could Hear the Whistling of the Bullets': Bar Patron Thankful to Be Alive After CA Shooting
'He was just trying to kill people.'
UPDATE: Ian David Long, 28, was identified by police Thursday morning as the gunman who killed 12 people in a California bar shooting the night before.
"Fox & Friends" spoke to a man who was at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., when a gunman opened fire late Wednesday.
Hundreds of people were at the venue for a country music night event when shots rang out at around 11:20 p.m. Police said 13 people -- including the gunman -- are dead.
Tyler Spady said he was walking from the dance floor to the bar when he heard gunshots near the entrance.
"I looked over and he was shooting at people. And then he started aiming it toward the crowd that I was in, so I immediately ducked down and started running toward a wall ... and jumped over it onto some tables," Spady said.
"It was just aimless shooting in any direction, and he pointed and just started shooting at the crowd that I was in," Spady said. "He was just trying to kill people."
Spady said he didn't get a good look at the gunman other than to see that he was dressed in all black.
"When he pointed the gun at me, I was out of there," he said. "He started shooting my direction and I could hear the whistling over my head, so I ducked down behind some chairs and tables."
He said he waited for the gunman to reload and then escaped out the back through the kitchen.
"While I was running away, people were dropping around me," Spady said. "I think that there were bullets hitting around me. So, I don't know, I'm just glad to be alive."
