Neighbors told CBS Los Angeles that Dominic came from an incredible family that was very loving. This has been a very traumatic situation for the community for my neighborhood in particular, Dave Lyznick, a neighbor of the Blackwell family, told CBS Los Angeles. Los Angeles County Sheriff s Department Sheriff Alex Villanueva said on Friday that the gunman s attack was planned, though the targets appeared to be random. It was deliberate. He knew how many rounds he had, for example, Villanueva said, according to the New York Post. He seemed very familiar with firing the weapon. Tyler Nilson, a 17-year-old senior who was on the cross country team with Nathaniel, told Insider that he never would have expected this from his classmate. To an extent I feel ashamed that I didn t know him better, since we weren t super close friends, he told Insider. We re all bewildered, since he never stood out as a loner or as the aggressive type. He was somebody I d least expect to commit such an atrocity.
