Gunman kills 12 in California bar packed with students

Gunman kills 12 in California bar packed with students

Asked what the scene inside the bar was like, Dean said, "Like. hell".

Around midday, the body of the slain sheriff's officer was taken by motorcade from the hospital to the coroner's office.

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

Authorities do not yet know his name or have any idea of a motive, Dean said.

"We're one big family", said Spellman, who was not at the bar Wednesday night.

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, who choked back tears several times as he talked about the sergeant who was also his longtime friend.

Long, who served as a machinegunner in Afghanistan between November 2010...

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.

Dean said officials had been unable to find a connection between Long and the Borderline bar.

Dressed all in black with his hood pulled up, Long opened fire with a handgun with an illegal, extra-capacity magazine.

"For many of us, it was seeing each others' faces in the bar again that brought us a huge sense of relief", she said. "I know we don't have all the details in yet, but you know, it just feels like it's an attack on our community".

Dean said Long was a veteran of the USA marine corps.

Berge said when he saw police activity at the house on Thursday morning, "I knew what it was".

"But unfortunately, you go into the unknown, you know there's shots being fired, obviously the suspect was in there and ready for him", he said.

Police said he was a heavily tattooed white male who was not carrying any form of identification, according to NBC News.

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.

Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the Los Angeles FBI office, said it was too early to speculate on the shooter's motives but that he appeared to have acted alone. He died at the hospital. Law Enforcement and First Responders, together with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are on scene.

There were hundreds of people packed inside Borderline Bar and Grill when a gunman burst inside throwing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said.

"I heard shots", he told CBS in an interview, "and that's not a noise you mistake for anything else".

Longtime friend Debbie Allen said he had a "big personality" and would often stay late at the bar to ensure people would get home safely. I just followed him, I dropped down and I hid with him. "And the gunman started opening fire on the cashiers, the people working the cash register on the front desk".

Trump ordered the USA flag at the White House and other government buildings to be flown at half-staff. According to the Times, he called his wife before entering the bar. "This is a safe place". "Right now ― so that no one else goes through this".

"I don't think in all the years I've known him, and it's nearly 30, I ever heard him say no to someone", she said.

Orfanos' social media indicates he attended the local Thousand Oaks High School and Moorepark College.
