  • California bar shooting Six people injured authorities speculate an'active scene

She spoke after learning that her 27 year-old Navy veteran son Telemachus was one of 12 people killed by ex-Marine Ian Long, 28, at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday night.

Police found patrons holed up in the attic and knocked on the door, telling them it was OK to come out. He said he thought their injuries were minor, and that majority were likely injured as they escaped, some by breaking windows.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured.

Among those outside the hospital was Ellen Rivera, who said she had survived the October 2017 slaughter of 58 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas - the worst mass shooting in USA history.

"I can't believe I'm saying this again", Molly Maurer posted on Facebook.

Long also was a frequent visitor to the Borderline bar, his friends said. His marriage disintegrated during his service, with he and his wife separating in June 2011 while he was on a seven-month tour in Afghanistan.

Ms Teylor Whittler managed to escape the carnage unhurt. "He looked like he knew what he was doing". He left as a corporal in March 2013 and recently was living with his mother in Thousand Oaks.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean says the investigation is still ongoing although there weren't any indications of preliminary indications the attack was terrorist-related.

There was no known motive for the shooting, Dean said. "He had some kind of issues".

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed", Dean said, choking back a few tears and clearing his throat.

He said his department had "several contacts" with Long over the years, for minor incidents including a traffic collision, and in 2015 when he was beaten up at a local bar.

Deputies were called to Long's house in response to a disturbance in April this year and "felt he might be suffering from PTSD, the fact he was a veteran and had been in the corps", he said. A mental health crisis team decided Long did not need to be taken into custody.

The gunman used a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, but the gun had an extended magazine, the sheriff said.

Friends and family mourn Ventura Country sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus, who was killed in a shooting at Borderline Bar.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to pay their respects as his body was taken by motorcade from the hospital to the coroner's office.

'I want gun control.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago. I got hit in the head by a stool that was being picked up to throw through a window, until some guy came up behind me and grabbed me and said, "Get up, we have to go!"
