Thousand Oaks Killer Ian Long Mocked 'Hopes and Prayers' Before Massacre

In this image made from aerial video police vehicles line a road in the vicinity of a shooting in Thousand Oaks California early Thursday Nov. 8 2018. Authorities say there were multiple injuries _ including one officer _ after a man opened fire in S

It's unclear whether he took his own life or if the attack was terror-related.

In April this year, deputies were called to his house for a disturbance and found him "acting a little irrationally". But a mental health specialist who assessed Long after police were called about his agitated behavior last spring anxious he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. "Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed", he said.

Sgt Helus died early yesterday at a hospital. Eight of those victims were students, and the other two were teachers.

About ten other victims were wounded.

Long, who was armed with a single handgun, a.45-calibre Glock 21, which he purchased legally, was found deceased at the Borderline Bar and Grill, the scene of the shooting in the city of Thousand Oaks northwest of downtown Los Angeles. His classmate said he suffered serious post traumatic stress disorder after his tour and sought help from therapists and doctors.

Tayler Whitler, 19, said she was dancing when the gunman opened fire.

Erika Sigman, 19, was another witness.

One survivor, Nicholas Champion, said a group of them were at the venue on Wednesday.

Knapp said, "It took a couple of seconds for people to realize what was going on and once that happened it was just utter chaos". Hours into the tragedy no one had been reunified with a loved one.

The official - who was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity - would not give additional details on what the 28-year-old former Marine posted on his Facebook and Instagram accounts. He said he had an army of friends and families on alert, making calls, and watching the news looking out for his son.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured. Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long. "They hid up in the attic, they hid in the bathroom", Dean said, describing the scene as "like hell".

When the gunman stopped to reload, he and others grabbed barstools and used them to smash open a window.

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and grown son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, who choked back tears several times as he talked about a man who was also his longtime friend. The highway patrolman cleared the perimeter and pulled Helus out.

California Lutheran University President Chris Kimball confirmed in a statement that he was among the dead, adding that he had "heroically saved lives in the incident". The bar is near the campus.
