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

Authorities haven't identified what motivated Long to open fire during college night at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, around 40 miles (64 kilometres) from downtown Los Angeles. He was shot inside and later died at a hospital.

Long was found dead in an office at the bar by police and is believed to have shot himself, Dean said.

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

Williams said Morisette would have been touched to see so many of her friends, family, and community members gathering together.

Ventura county sheriff Geoff Dean said sheriff's deputies were called to Long's home in Newbury Park, five miles west of Thousand Oaks, in April 2018. "We are also a community of hope". "Long over the years" including minor events such as a traffic collision.

"I would make fun of him, because he would drag me there".

Julie Hanson, who lives next door to Long's ranch-style home, described him as "odd" and "disrespectful" well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines, becoming a machine-gunner.

According to Wennerstorm, he had only been at the Borderline Bar & Grill for about half an hour when the shooter entered the premises.

He trailed off, sobbing, then said, "Oh, Cody, I love you, son".

"Here are my words: I want gun control, " said Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, her voice shaking with grief and rage.

"I probably saw him for two seconds, three seconds at most, before I went into protection mode", he told CBS.

Long's activities in the days before the shooting remain unknown.

Long served in the Marines from August 2008 until March 2013. He was deployed to Afghanistan from November 16, 2010 to June 14, 2011.

Friends are remembering sheriff's sergeant who was killed trying to stop a shooting rampage at a California bar as a "cop's cop" who didn't hesitate to run toward danger.

"It's particularly ironic that after surviving the worst mass shooting in modern history, he went on to be killed in his hometown", his father told the Ventura County Star.

More recently he was living in a home where neighbours said they could hear frequent, aggressive shouting between Long and his mother, especially over the a year ago.

The bar is also close to several other universities, including California State University Channel Islands in Camarillo, Pepperdine in Malibu and Moorpark College in Moorpark. A sheriff's deputy, 12 attendees and the gunmen were killed.

Twelve people were killed, including Helus.

Noel Sparks was a gifted dancer and artist, a friend says. No other information on them was immediately known. On his other arm Thursday, he still had his wristband from the California bar. He was looking forward to cooking for everyone at the school's Veterans Day Celebration on Monday, Cal Lutheran's veterans coordinator Jenn Zimmerman said.

Authorities say there were multiple injuries - including one officer - after a man opened fire in Southern California bar late Wednesday. Then they began "shuffling as many people out as possible". The line extended out of the parking lot at La Reina High School, stretching down the street and wrapping around the block, school officials said.

"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. "You want to do everything you can".

At the vigil, hundreds joined in song inside the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza while an overflow crowd gathered outside to remember those who were lost. "You just don't know how to feel". "We're Thousand Oaks strong tonight".
