California singer shot in Las Vegas mass shooting speaks: ‘I didn’t … – KGO

Jessica Milam and Destene Albers are Disneyland co-workers who initially bonded over country music and when they are together, it seems a strange chemical reaction yields wackiness and warmth.

They took this act on the road to Las Vegas last year, but their lively weekend ended in terror when a gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 and injuring 851 other people, including Jessica.

“There was one point where I thought ‘this is how I die. I didn’t think I was making it out,” said Milam.

When a bullet hit Jessica that night, Destene pledged to get her out and she did. Little by little dragging her friend out of the concert grounds.

Jessica: “I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be there with.”

Destene: “I love you.”

Jessica: “I love you.”

Jessica’s here tonight because of Destene, but the rescue

Kevin Janson Neal Made Own Rifles Used in Tuesday’s California Mass Shooting

Kevin Janson Neal made two of the rifles — AR-15 semi-automatics — he used in California’s mass shooting on Tuesday, getting around the state’s strict gun laws, a sheriff’s officer and experts said.

Neal, 44, reportedly made the rifles from parts he had purchased, Phil Johnston, Tehama County assistant sheriff, told the Redding Record Searchlight on Wednesday.

Officials also said two other rifles in Neal’s possession were not registered to him, but someone else, the Record Searchlight reported.

Neal’s rampage left six dead and 10 injured, the newspaper said, and Neal was killed during a shootout with deputies as he tried to escape in a stolen vehicle.

“These firearms were manufactured illegally, we believe, by him at his home,” Johnston said, per Record Searchlight. “So they (the guns) were obtained in an illegal manner, not through a legal process. They are not registered.”

NBC News reported experts saying that Neal appeared to have
