  • Former US Marine kills at least 12 in shooting at California bar

The killer was identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former machine gunner and veteran of the war in Afghanistan who was interviewed by police at his home last spring after an episode of agitated behaviour that they were told might be post-traumatic stress disorder.

President Donald Trump ordered the U.S. flag at the White House and other government buildings to be flown at half-staff following the shooting, which came just 10 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed.

Officers arrived on the scene 2 to 3 minutes after the initial call to law enforcement as shots continued to ring out, Dean said. 13 people, at this time, have been reported dead.

As the entered, Sergeant Helus was struck multiple times with gunfire. "It's something that I wish I was OK to do, but unfortunately I can't, so that's why I'm making sure that he gets remembered", King said.

He said he has no doubt Helus' tactics at the scene "were sound when he went in". "We have no idea what the motive was at this point", Dean said. "He gave his all".

"I told his wife he died a hero", Dean said.

Speaking at press conference in the wee hours of Thursday, a sheriff said that around a dozen other people had been injured. He is survived by his wife and a son. He'd just warned him not to drink and drive.

Speaking to reporters, Mr Coffman sobbed as his worst fears came true.

Hanson described Long as an introvert who never caused him problems and that he was "dumbfounded" by the massacre. "I am speechless and heartbroken". He loved fishing in the Sierra Nevada mountains with his son.

"He was my fishing buddy".

"His life was about going above and beyond", she said.

Dean said the shooter reportedly shot at employees and security before turning on the crowd. She was the niece of actor and The Real host Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley.

"Our hearts are broken".

Deputies found Long "was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally" and called in a mental health specialist, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said. But Dean said Long had used an extended magazine - illegal in California - during the shooting, which would enable the weapon to fire more rounds before needing to be reloaded. Meek, who had recently graduated from the university, helped to save lives during the shooting, according to the university.

"We offer our deepest condolences to the Housley family and ask that our community join us in keeping Alaina's family, friends, and loved ones in their prayers during this incredibly hard time", Pepperdine University added in a statement.
