He was shot several times as he tried to stop the rampaging gunman, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said. The episode was thought to be possible post-traumatic stress disorder because of his military background.
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.
He said he appeared to have shot at random inside the club, using only a Glock.45-caliber handgun.
Sheriff John Dean recounted what Helus had told his wife, telling the LA Times: 'He said, "Hon, I got to go, I love you". The ATF is now investigating how and when the weapon was purchased. He said the motive of the shooting and the identity of the shooter were not known.
Authorities converged on Long's home in Newbury Park, about 5 miles from the Borderline bar, in a search for clues to what set him off.
Dean said officials had been unable to find a connection between Long and the Borderline bar.
