Once outside Mr Knapp and a friend helped carry a gunshot victim to an ambulance. The U.S. Marine Corps released Long's service record, which said he served from 2008 to 2013, and his ranking was a corporal as a machine gunner, ABC News reported.

Sheriff Geoff Dean said police had responded to a minor disturbance.

"We have called in our bomb team to go through and a couple of bomb dogs here that are checking the area", Dean said.

Mental health professionals sent to evaluate him concluded he did not need to be taken into custody, he said.

Sheriff Dean added Long obtained the murder weapon - a Glock 21.45 calibre handgun - legally, but the weapon had an illegal magazine extension.

He said the gunman had apparently shot himself.

"I have nothing to believe there is any terrorism link but we will certainly look at that option", he said.

A woman in the background added: "He was kind of a loner". Active law enforcement incident.

"He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation."

"It's been a rough night for all of us", Buschow said, according to the report. The shooter was found dead inside, authorities said. "Just an awesome investigator".

The California Highway Patrol officers that accompanied Helus into the bar ended up rescuing him when Long opened fire.

Ron Helus, a Ventura County sheriff's sergeant, was killed in a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks late Wednesday night.

"[He] said to her, 'Hey I got to go handle a call".

"I've been a cop for 41 years and I never thought I've seen the things around the country would happen but I've learned it doesn't matter what community you're in, it doesn't matter how safe your community is, it can happen anywhere", said Sheriff Dean.

The gunman used a semi-automatic weapon in the attack, according to the Ventura County Star.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price, " he said.

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.
