What we know about the California mass shooting

09 November, 2018, 10:43 | Author: Wade Massey

A gunman who shot 12 people dead in a bar near Los Angeles before apparently killing himself was a former US Marine who may have had post-traumatic stress disorder, police said.

"They ran out of the back doors, they broke windows, they went through windows".

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters Thursday that Long had served in Afghanistan.

The hooded killer used a smoke bomb and a handgun, sending hundreds of people fleeing in terror.

Twenty-three people were injured - some from "jumping out of windows, diving under tables", Dean said - and treated at area hospitals.

Borderline Bar and Grill in California had become a safe haven for dozens of survivors of last year's massacre at a Las Vegas country music festival, a place where they gathered for line dancing and drinks.

"Nothing has led me to believe or the Federal Bureau of Investigation there is a terrorism link here". "I'm alive and I'm home safe". The 28-year-old was on active duty with the marines from August 2008 to March 2013, CNN reported, citing the Department of Defense.

"He had flawless form", bar patron Teylor Whittler told Fox News. "He looked like he knew what he was doing".

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials were seen visiting a residence believed to be Long's in Newbury Park, California, which neighbors Thousand Oaks. Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long.

Authorities so far had no indication of a motive, or of any connection to terrorism.

"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said in the parking lot. "I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military". "He had some kind of issues".

Dean described the scene inside the bar as "like hell".

Long's only other contact with authorities came after a traffic collision and after he alleged he was the victim of a violent encounter in 2015 at another bar in Thousand Oaks, the sheriff said. A crisis intervention specialist was called to his house and talked to him, but left without taking him into custody, Dean said.

"Obviously he had something going on in his head that would cause him to do something like this", Dean said.

Seargent Ron Helus of Ventura County Sheriff's Office was the first law enforcement official to arrive at the Borderline Wednesday night. "He didn't have to but he did it because it was in his blood", one person said.

"He said Helus was on the phone with his wife when he got the report of the shooting and he told her, "'Hey, I have to go. "You're always overanalyzing people, trying to figure out if something were to go down, 'What would I do?'" California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times.

'As soon as I heard the shots I knew exactly what was going on, ' Wennerstrom said.'I turned and saw a dark figure, and made a decision to get out of there as soon as I could'.

Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said lawmakers would get to work on legislation including universal background checks when the House of Representatives convenes in January with a Democratic majority.
