  • Active shooter multiple victims reported in mass shooting at California bar

The shooting at the Las Vegas country music festival on October 1, 2017 left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

The victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, include army veterans, students and a police officer.

Authorities believe Ian David Long eventually turned the gun on himself, but not before the 28-year-old, dressed in all black, terrorized a crowd filled with college students at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

"We will be sure to paint a picture of the state of mind of the subject and do our best to identify a motivation", Delacourt said, adding that the FBI would investigate any possible "radicalization" or links to militant groups.

At a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Helus called his wife and said he had a call to handle, and told her he loved her before running into the incident at the bar.

Dean said Long was a Marine veteran, and said there was a chance he suffered from PTSD.

Dean said that the dead police officer, who was named as Ron Helus and had been on the force for 29 years, was among the first on the scene. It had been purchased legally, Dean said. According to locals, Borderline Bar & Grill was a gathering place for people who loved country music. "It could have been much, much worse", he said.

They found Long "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally", Dean said.

Dean described the scene inside the bar as "like hell". "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that".

Many more people had minor injuries, including some that came from their attempt to flee, Dean said.

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

Long shot an unarmed security guard outside the bar before going inside, where he fired on security staff, CNN reported. The bar was hosting a college country music night and was packed with students and other patrons.

Justin Meek, 23, had recently graduated from Thousand Oaks' California Lutheran University, school officials confirmed in a statement on Thursday. They went through windows.

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".

Stunned, panicked and frightened customers ran for cover and hid wherever they could: in bathrooms, in the attic, behind a pool table. Knapp said he and a friend helped carry a gunshot victim to an ambulance. "It's something that I wish I was OK to do, but unfortunately I can't, so that's why I'm making sure that he gets remembered", King said. "It doesn't matter how safe your community is. It can happen anywhere".

"He went in to make it so that other people are OK, you know".

He told reporters that his son - who had two younger brothers, aged eight and six - had been planning to join the military and was also looking forward to the arrival of a baby sister later this month.

"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.

"Oh, Cody, I love you, son", Coffman sobbed.

She was the niece of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley, who issued a plea to find her in the hours following the attack.

Some of the people present at the mass shooting in a California nightclub Wednesday night were also survivors of the Las Vegas country music concert shooting a year ago, according to a friend.
