12 killed in shooting at California bar packed with college students

Some inside Borderline bar survived Las Vegas mass shooting friends say

Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a news conference Thursday morning that 28-year-old Ian David Long approached the building with a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun.

Dean said police had previous run-ins with Long, including a call to his home where he was acting irrationally. The sheriff said officers were told he might have PTSD because of his military service. However, mental health specialists who were called in "talked to him, and cleared him".

A shooter opened fire at a bar in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday night, leaving at least 11 people injured, California authorities said. "I'm hoping that he was stupid and ran away".

Hanson described Long as an introvert and said he was "dumbfounded" by the massacre.

Officials said that shots were still being fired when the first officers arrived at the scene.

Sergeant Ron Helus is among the victims killed. Helus was immediately shot repeatedly, Dean said.

"I don't know what to say to the other people that are going to be going through the situation I am", he said.

People dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence.

Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this hard time", the department added. That exit leads to a patio where people smoke. "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".
