The dead suspect in a tragic Wednesday night bar shooting in California is a Marine veteran. But that gunman also took the life of another Marine.
Dan Manrique, a Marine veteran and head of the Ventura, California, chapter for Team Red, White & Blue, was killed when a gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.
“We are heartbroken to confirm that Dan Manrique, Pacific Regional Program Manager for Team RWB and Marine Corps veteran, was one of the victims of the Borderline shooting in Thousand Oaks last night,” Bana Miller, a spokeswoman for Team RWB, told Marine Corps Times Thursday in an emailed statement.
“Dan’s life was dedicated to serving others, during his military career and beyond. All of us at Team RWB are keeping all those impacted by this tragedy in our thoughts and prayers,” she wrote.
