Thousand Oaks: At least 12 killed at California bar shooting

"When the officers went in and made re-entry, they found him already deceased", Dean said, according to ABC 6. "He was found inside an office just adjacent to the entry to the bar".

A neighbour, who would only identify himself by his last name, Hanson, said Long lived with his mother.

A next-door neighbour said he called authorities about six months ago when he heard loud banging and shouting at Long's home.

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.

"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said at a news conference early Thursday in the parking lot of the Borderline Bar & Grill.

"I think everyone was in so much shock that it was sheer panic", she said.

Long joined the Marines in 2008 and rose to the rank of corporal before leaving active service in 2013, Joseph Butterfield, a Marine spokesman, wrote in an email.

Dean said Long was armed with a single handgun, a.45 caliber Glock 21, which he purchased legally. It's unclear whether the magazine was legally purchased. "He was a cop's cop, and we miss him". "We don't know if he reloaded his weapon or not, we're still interviewing witnesses".

Kuredjian said at around 0915 GMT (5pm Singapore time) that the shooter was still confined inside the premises, adding that he did not know if he had been subdued or shot.

"It appears he walked up to the scene". He shot the security guard.

Democrats seek emergency hearings on Trump’s ouster of Jeff Sessions
The row, carried live on national TV networks, was followed by Trump issuing angry put-downs to several other reporters. Sessions was the first casualty of a cabinet shakeup that had been expected from Trump following the midterm elections.

Ron Helus, who had worked in law enforcement for 29 years, had planned to retire in the coming year, Dean said, noting that the two were friends who often worked out together.

Multiple people have been injured, including a deputy, in a shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks. He died at the hospital.

The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a veteran sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer inside the door, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

'He was totally committed, he gave his all, and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero.' 'It's so tragic losing Ron.

Witnesses described the instant a fun night out at a California bar turned into bloody chaos when a gunman opened fire, blasting "everything" and slaughtering 12 people.

Dean estimated that 10 to 15 people, including one with a gunshot wound, had gone to area hospitals.

"All of a sudden we heard the "bang, bang" of the gunshots and it just started going insane and people were pushing".

John Hedge told NBC News he and his stepdad were in the bar and were forced to take cover when the shooting started. "My stepdad dove and took cover and yelled at me, 'John, hit the deck!" This is a heart I will never get back.

President Donald Trump said in a tweet Thursday morning that he was "fully briefed" on the shooting.
