Marine combat veteran kills 12 in crowded California bar

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.

"And he didn't come home last night", his mother said. Celebration can easily turn to tragedy if a gunman were to walk into a nightspot and start shooting.

Mental health specialists talked to him and didn't feel he qualified to be detained under the state's "5150" mental health detention law, Dean said.

Deputies were called to Long's house in response to a disturbance in April, 2018 and "felt he might be suffering from PTSD", he said. He was a machine gunner.

Long was deployed to Afghanistan from November 2010 through June 2011. His last duty assignment was at Kanehoe Bay, Hawaii. He received numerous awards including a combat action ribbon, a Navy unit commendation, a Global War on Terrorism service medal and an Afghanistan campaign medal.

"It's not just something where you get out of there and fend for yourself", he told CBS News.

Terrified patrons who had gathered for the weekly line dancing and college night hurled barstools through windows to escape or threw their bodies protectively on top of friends as shots erupted. He said Long became distant from family members upon his return from the Marines.

Noel Sparks, a 21-year-old student at Moorpark College, was also confirmed dead.

In addition to the dead, ten people were hurt and continuing to receive hospital treatment on Thursday.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said the first reports of shots fired came around 11:20 p.m.at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 64 kilometers west of Los Angeles.
