Victims of the Borderline Bar Mass Shooting Have Been Identified

California bar shooting Six people injured authorities speculate an'active scene

The bar's website says its hosts "College Country Night" every Wednesday.

The Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks is popular among local college students.

But neighbors reported hearing frequent loud fights between Ian David Long and his mother, one of them so extreme they called police in April, and authorities at the time anxious that the 28-year-old Afghanistan war veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder, though a mental health specialist concluded there were no grounds to have him involuntarily committed.

The Borderline Bar shooting left 12 dead, including the police officer who responded to first reports.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters Thursday that Long had served in Afghanistan.

Dean said Long was armed with a single handgun, a.45 caliber Glock 21, which he purchased legally. "If we could be the first level of first responders before they got there, then you do all you can do instead of standing around not doing much". The device is illegal in California.

- Sheriff Dean said that Long was the victim in a January 2015 fight at a different bar in Thousand Oaks.

"Obviously, he had something going on in his head that caused him to do something like this", he said.

This was the second mass shooting in the U.S.in less than two weeks.

Wennerstrom, a student at nearby California State University, Channel Islands, soon followed them to safety.

Long joined the Marines at 18 and was married as a 19-year-old in Honolulu in June 2009, according to military and court records. He told the Reuters news agency that he saw the shooter enter the bar and stop at the counter.

The sheriff said Long drove to the bar and shot an unarmed security guard who was standing outside before opening fire at random inside.

"Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with the people that it happened to", defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said.

Authorities said Long was found dead at the scene after he had killed12 people, including a sheriff's deputy, and was confronted by officers who had stormed the bar.

Sgt Helus died early yesterday at a hospital.

"He gave his all and tonight as I told his wife he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

Hanson described Long as an introvert and said he was "dumbfounded" by the massacre.

Hanson told the Associated Press he had heard shouting and loud noises coming from the Longs' home.

"In this community, it's very hard for me to comprehend it because I've been here all my life and to think that - I've never experienced it, I've just never experienced it", Sigman said. One of the encounters involved a reported disturbance at his home in April that prompted mental health specialists to talk to him.
