Justin Meek, age 23, was killed in the mass shooting at Borderline, a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, CA.  12 people were killed by the shooter, Ian David Long.  Justin graduated from Coronado High School in 2014 and recently graduated from Cal Lutheran University.

Justin was working at the bar and was shot multiple times trying to save others.

A candlelight vigil will be held tonight (Nov. 8th) at Spreckels Park at 7pm.  The flags on all City of Coronado facilities are lowered to half-staff by presidential proclamation until sunset on Saturday, Nov. 10, as a mark of respect for the victims of the shooting.

Cal Lutheran issued the following statement earlier today:

The Cal Lutheran community is filled with sorrow over the violent events that took place last night a few miles from campus in Thousand Oaks. Sadly, we have learned from the family that a recent graduate, Justin Meek, 23, is one of the precious lives cut short in this tragedy. Meek heroically saved lives in the incident.

We know that many community members are looking for ways to help and to reach out. We encourage you to give blood locally. To make a cash donation to support affected community members, visit the Ventura County Community Foundation at https://vccf.org/donate/make-a-donation/
