Authorities believe he killed himself.

Investigators believe Long used a legally purchased.45-caliber Glock 21 with an extended magazine during the shooting, and they're trying to figure out why he did it. Authorities said it's unclear what his motive was.

Long's only other contact with authorities came after a traffic collision and after he alleged he was the victim of a violent encounter in 2015 at another bar in Thousand Oaks, the sheriff said. "Adam's been a colleague a long time".

The slain deputy, Sergeant Ron Helus, was a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County sheriff's office.

"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said in the parking lot. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A set of raging wildfires encroached on the small California city still reeling from a mass shooting Friday. It also came less than two weeks after a gunman massacred 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

President Donald Trump talked to the media before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House, today, in Washington.

He praised law enforcement, saying "Great bravery shown by police" and said "God bless all of the victims and families of the victims".

Witnesses described the shooter as standing over 6 feet tall and wearing dark clothing. I ran out the front door. "He was a good guy", the friend told the network.

Just over a year later, he was once again in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Telemachus Orfanos was among the 12 people slain.

"He died a hero", said Dean, the sheriff, with his voice cracking, "because he went in to save lives".

The shooting in Thousand Okas, Calfornia, left 12 dead. Pepperdine University in Malibu also canceled classes.

"I literally feared for myself around him", Colell said in an interview.

While the horror washes over all of us, many from around the region and around the country are leaping into action to support the victims, families, law enforcement community and organizations providing first and second line support. Rapid-fire gunshots could be heard as officers crouched behind a police vehicle, weapons drawn.

At one point in the video, the silhouette of a man can be seen, who Knapp identifies as the gunman. I don't want thoughts.

"I'm super upset that it happened in our home, and I feel very bad for the families that have to go through this", said Merrill, the exhaustion evident in her eyes. That exit leads to a patio where people smoke.

"I'm going in", Helus said, according to the radio calls. He told the dispatcher he was outside an entrance with two California Highway Patrol officers.

'He reloaded and then just kept on popping them off, ' said Tim, John's stepdad.

Police said they weren't sure why the gunman, who lived in nearby Newbury Park, California, was drawn to the bar. It was uncomfortable timing for some in the genre, suddenly linked to the contentious issue of gun control - in a town where artists are encouraged to keep their political beliefs silent, so as not to alienate fans.

She told KABC-TV: "It was really, really, really shocking". "It looked like he knew what he was doing".
