  • People comfort each other outside the scene of a shooting

The shooting is the latest in a long list of mass shootings in the US.

The gunman was tall and wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations.

Housley is the niece of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley, a former Fox News reporter. In the parking lot, people comforted each other with hugs or a pat on the back.

On Thursday, authorities provided an update on the shooting. Law enforcement and emergency crews were flooding the scene. Dean said Helus was the first to go in and was immediately hit with multiple gunshots.

It was the second mass shooting in less than two weeks, after a gunman killed 11 Jewish worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue on October 27.

President Donald Trump, who has resisted a surge in calls for tougher gun controls since 17 students were shot dead at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida earlier this year, said on Twitter that he had been "fully briefed on the awful shooting in California".

"This is a very close-knit community", Kuredjian said, adding that Thousand Oaks - north and west of Los Angeles - is a "pro-law-enforcement community" as well.

A police officer, described as a sheriff's sergeant, and the gunman are among the 13 confirmed to have died.

Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer, who hasn't been publicly named, were on scene within minutes, and were the first responders to fearless their way into the bar, darkened by a smoke bomb set off by Long.

Helus served in recent years as a firearms instructor for recruits in the sheriff's academy, and also owned and operated a business in which he taught gun safety to permit applicants, according to CNN.

Dean said that officials found a Glock.45-caliber handgun at the scene.

"Ask anyone on the (Coronado) island who knows this kid and they'll say nothing short of how great a guy he is", Sefa-Boakye said.

A college country music night was underway when the suspect apparently threw a smoke grenade into the crowd before opening fire with at least one weapon. Once safely outside, the uninjured hugged and awaited word about those still inside. Helus died at a hospital.

Jason Coffman received the news that his son Cody, 22, who was about to join the Army, was dead. "I know we don't have all the details in yet, but you know, it just feels like it's an attack on our community".

Ian David Long began his adult life by enlisting in the Marines and getting married.

The Marine Corps said Long had attained the rank of corporal after serving almost five years, including seven months in Afghanistan.

Police found Long dead of what Dean said he believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot.

Police have not identified a motive.

The police called in a team of mental health specialists who decided that Long did not qualify to be involuntarily detained for mental health evaluation under state law.

Authorities converged on Long's home in Newbury Park, about 5 miles from the Borderline bar, in a search for clues to what set him off. The extent of the victim's injuries has not yet been released.

Law enforcement agencies, firefighters and other first responders, along with several ambulances, additional units from the California Highway Patrol, Simi Valley and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, reached the spot soon after the shooting was reported.
