California shooting suspect was a decorated Marine veteran

A Masked Gunman Killed Twelve People On ‘Student Night’ At A Country Music Bar Outside Los Angeles

At least 12 people have been killed, including a police officer, at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

The man suspected of killing 12 people in a bar in a Los Angeles suburb was a decorated Marine Corp machine gunner deployed in Afghanistan who had several prior brushes with law enforcement, police and Marine officials said on Thursday (Nov 8).

In that incident, deputies were called to his home, where Dean said Long was acting "irrationally".

He said the shooter entered and turned to the door counter and coat check area before eventually working his way to the bar.

Police said Long appeared to have shot randomly into the crowd at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, about 50km west of Los Angeles.

"We've been talking about that, no matter what happens, she'll be in the best place she can possibly be in", Lee said.

"As you know, these are ongoing investigations and that information will come out as soon as we are able to determine exactly who the suspect was and what motive he might have had for this horrific event".

"I can't believe I'm saying this again. We certainly will look at that option".

"They found people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics", Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

Friends are remembering sheriff's sergeant who was killed trying to stop a shooting rampage at a California bar as a "cop's cop" who didn't hesitate to run toward danger.

It was sometime after 11 p.m. PST on Wednesday night when Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former U.S. Marine, walked into the Western-themed bar on "College Country Night" and fired off round after round seemingly at random from his.45 caliber Glock handgun equipped with a high-capacity magazine.

"We just stood there basically forcing as many people out as fast as we could until we cleared everyone out and then we jumped out ourselves", he told the news station. They determined that he was not an immediate danger to himself or others and that he could not be involuntarily taken to a mental hospital. "One bar stool and straight through a window", he told reporters.

TV footage showed SWAT teams surrounding the bar, with distraught revelers milling around and using their cell phones as lights from police cars flashed.

Holden Harrah told CNN the gunman opened fire within seconds.

"We just got down", Kayla Simmons said as she wept, huddled in a pink blanket near Helmuth. "Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot".

A witness told the station, "There were people in the middle dancing and just hanging out and having a good time" when "very, very loud gunshots" rang out inside.

"He shot a lot, at least 30 times".

"I was actually about to leave when you start hearing pop, pop, pop".

It was the latest chapter in America's epidemic of gun violence.

It also came less than two weeks after a gunman massacred 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
