The mother of a young man who survived last year's gun massacre in Las Vegas only to be killed by another gunman in a California bar this week has made an impassioned plea for gun control.
Telemachus Orfanos, known as Tel, was 27 years old.
Also, one of the possibilities investigators are looking into is whether gunman Ian David Long believed his former girlfriend would be at the bar, the official said.
TMZ reported Friday that he apparently was posting items on Instagram while the shooting was happening. "As you know, these are ongoing investigations and that information will come out as soon as we are able to determine exactly who the suspect was and what motive he might have had for this horrific event".

"He was a war veteran and a Marine and in the war and served time and saw some pretty bad things and a lot of people say he had PTSD", said the president, referring to the psychologial condition Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
"The mental health experts out there cleared him that day", Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Thursday, the morning after Long opened fire inside a bar that was hosting a night for local college students.
"He fired the first shot".
Authorities were searching the shooter's home. They were called to his home in April, and he was behaving "irate and irrationally".
One officer said his social media, accessed through his cell phone, consisted of rantings.
"There were people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics to escape the shooter".

Others hid in attics, closets and under tables. At the Borderline on Wednesday, Long was found dead inside an office at the bar.

He later went to college but eventually dropped out.
Ian David Long, 28, is accused of gunning down a dozen people before turning the gun on himself. According to reports, Long used a.45 caliber handgun in the incident and was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside of the bar.
