Four months after a dozen people were killed in a mass shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, more than $3 million in donations has been given to the victims’ families.

Checks totaling $3.6 million were recently distributed to more than 200 people who lost loved ones, were injured in the Nov. 8 shooting or were there when the attack happened, said Vanessa Bechtel, chief executive of the Ventura County Community Foundation.
