Authorities: Suspected gunman dies at Calif. bar

Shooting reported at California bar

Shooting reported at California bar

U.S. media said a number of the young people who were at the bar rampage in California on Wednesday night had survived that massacre. Last night police said they had not found a motive for the mass shooting, although some reports claimed that Long was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, having served in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Marine veteran who is accused of shooting and killing 12 people at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, this week is believed to have made a social media post around the time of the attack on November 7.

In recent years, police said they had "several contacts" with Long, mostly for minor events including traffic accidents. "Wouldn't that just be a big bowl of irony", Long wrote around the time he carried out the mass shooting. Around 15 people, including several who were hurt "jumping out of windows, diving under tables", were also injured, he added. "It's a horrific scene in there".

NBC News said the.45-caliber Glock handgun had been purchased legally but had had its magazine modified to hold more ammunition. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Family members are led into the Thousand Oaks Teen Center where families have gathered after a deadly shooting at a bar on Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. A gunman shooting from the 32nd floor of a hotel and casino with high power weapons killed 58 people.

President Donald Trump talked to the media before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House, today, in Washington. Some say it's too early or too disrespectful to the families of the victims. He was described to be a bearded man wearing a black jacket, hat, and glasses. He first fired on a person working the door, then appeared to shoot at random at people inside, they said. "He was a good guy", the friend told the network. "We're trying to make sense out of the senseless, it's absolutely tragic".

Among the casualties was Sgt. Ron Helus, a longtime sheriff's deputy who was talking to his wife on the phone when the call came over the radio for an active shooter. "The second time around doesn't get any easier".

Telemachus Orfanos was among the 12 people slain. The man is believed to have taken his own life.

A sheriff's captain says at least six people were shot late Wednesday when a suspect opened fire in a crowded Southern California bar.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price", he said.

The shooting in Thousand Okas, Calfornia, left 12 dead.

Alaina Housley, 18, was a student at Pepperdine University.

"It was a very stern, straight-faced, focused face", he said.

"I knew exactly what it was, the moment it was", Anderson said.

"They couldn't get him to come out, so it was like a standoff for four or five hours", he said of the April incident.

A law enforcement motorcade escorts the body of Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt Ron Helus. Rapid-fire gunshots could be heard as officers crouched behind a police vehicle, weapons drawn. "I don't want thoughts", she pleaded emphatically.
