Marine Vet Identified as Gunman Who Killed 12 at California Bar

Twelve people were killed, including Helus.

The shooter has been identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former US Marine with mental health problems.

Each moment was captured by TV cameras and broadcast live on cable networks as Americans grappled with another mass shooting. "Acting a little irrationally", he said. That exit leads to a patio where people smoke.

Police said Long appeared to have shot randomly into the crowd at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, about 50km west of Los Angeles.

Dean said the other prior encounters were a traffic accident and an incident when he was the victim of battery at a bar.

Long shot an unarmed security guard outside the bar before going inside, where he fired on security staff, CNN reported. However, mental health specialists who were called in "talked to him, and cleared him".

Police say Long was dressed in black from head to toe. Dean told reporters that there was no indication the suspect was targeting bar employees.

"At that point, I grabbed as many people around me as I could and grabbed them down under the pool table we were closest to until he ran out of bullets", Wennerstrom told reporters. He said he thought their injuries were minor, and that majority were likely injured as they escaped, some by breaking windows.

One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed. He was a year away from retirement after 29 years on the job. Long's body was found in an office near the entrance of the bar. "And he didn't come last night", she told the Times. That shooting came days after a gunman was suspected of killing two black patrons of a Kentucky supermarket after he apparently failed to get inside a black church.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that "protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount". But Mr Sessions's replacement will have the power to do so, or end the inquiry.

A year ago, 58 people were shot dead at a country music festival in Las Vegas, the worst mass shooting in modern USA history, and several of the patrons in the California bar had also been at the Nevada concert.

Orfanos was reportedly at Borderline with other friends who had survived the Las Vegas shooting.

The fatal shooting of a dozen people at a Western-themed bar in Thousand Oaks, California, inspired hundreds of area residents to line up for hours on Thursday to donate blood for the wounded. "You can't go to a bar or a nightclub?"

The Marine Corps said Long had attained the rank of corporal after serving almost five years, including seven months in Afghanistan. He was a machine gunner and the recipient of numerous medals, including the Good Conduct Medal and the Combat Action Ribbon.

That, in turn, closely followed the series of pipe bombs mailed to critics of President Donald Trump.

U.S. Representative Jerry Nadler is the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.

One officer said it had been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks.

Thousand Oaks was named the third-safest city in the United States for 2018 by the website Niche.
