Thousand Oaks mass shooting suspect was Marine, had mental health review

Police sergeant one year from retirement among California shooting victims after 'going in to save lives'

On Thursday, 12 people including a cop were shot dead in a shooting at a night club close to Los Angeles.

Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus died of gunshot wounds he suffered trying to stop gunman Ian David Long, who authorities say opened fire in a packed country music bar, killing 12 before police believe he turned the gun on himself Wednesday night. Authorities have not determined a motive for the shooting.

Long used a.45 caliber Glock handgun, which was purchased legally, Dean said.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said on Thursday that Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber handgun created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber.

Long, who served as a machinegunner in Afghanistan between November 2010...

"He died tonight going in to try to save others and paid the ultimate sacrifice", Dean said. One of the encounters involved a reported disturbance at his home in April that prompted mental health specialists to talk to him.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured.

"He was raving hell in the house, you know, kicking holes in the walls and stuff and one of the neighbors was concerned and called the police", Richard Berge, who lived one block away from the home, told Reuters.

Berge, who took care of Long's mother's dogs, said she told him following that incident she anxious her son might take his own life but did not fear he would hurt her.

Long was "the victim of a battery" at a bar in Thousand Oaks in January 2015, Dean said.

A SWAT team from the Ventura County Sherrif's Department, arrived within minutes, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other officers to find the bar strewn with bodies, survivors huddling in terror, and others desperately trying to get out.

"It's a horrific scene in there", he said. "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that".

Dean estimated 10 to 15 people went to the area hospitals for what he expects are minor injuries.

The carnage added Thousand Oaks to the seemingly endless list of American cities at which a mass shooting has occurred. He first fired on a person working the door then appeared to open fire at random at the people inside, they said. I look up. The security guard. was shot, he was down.

Trump ordered US flags to be flown at half-staff at public buildings and grounds.

Borderline, which bills itself as the "biggest dance floor in town", had been hosting an event called "College Country Night" when the shooting occurred.

A 23-year-old California Lutheran University student has also been identified as another victim.

Speaking at press conference in the wee hours of Thursday, a sheriff said that around a dozen other people had been injured.

Knapp said he helped people hide behind a pool table and then fled outside, alerting people on an outdoor smoking patio and helping carry a victim to an ambulance.
