Democrats and the media are still in shock after a gunman shot himself in the head inside the Wells Fargo Center in Las Palmas, California, early Saturday morning.
But there was a time when Democrats were in shock.
A time when Republicans were still in power.
A time when the GOP was not threatening to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and Democrats were still pushing the idea of Medicare for all.
A moment when the Democrats were a party that was in charge of the country.
The news media was also in shock that Democrats were even talking about the idea.
They were not talking about it in the first place.
A reporter on the scene told ABC News’ John Santucci that a person had been seen on video pushing a gun on to a police officer.
The video, which was obtained by The Associated Press, shows a man wearing a mask and a mask of an officer pushing a handgun into the face of a police officers on the street.
A source close to the investigation told ABC affiliate KCBS that the shooter, who was also seen in the video, has a history of mental health issues and had been in a psychiatric hospital in the past.
The AP reports that police said the suspect had a history with mental health and mental health-related issues, including a history in jail.
The gunman was identified as Stephen Paddock, 58, a retired accountant who purchased more than 1,000 guns, and police believe he acted alone in the shooting.
Police said he shot himself as they tried to stop him.
