Who is Ian David Long, the suspected Thousand Oaks bar shooter?

Helus and a colleague from the California Highway Patrol arrived at the scene within three minutes of the first calls and entered the bar, where he "was struck multiple times with gunfire", Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

"Ever since my son was 3 years old, I coached him all the way up til when he played high school baseball".

The shooter has been identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former US Marine with mental health problems.

Tom Hanson, 70, who lives next door to Long and his mother, said Thursday that he called the police about six months ago when he heard "heavy-duty banging" and shouting coming from the Longs' home.

The gunman was found dead. "Right now as far as we know there was only one handgun, but that could certainly change as we do a more thorough search of the building".

President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting and praised law enforcement officers for their response. Long used an extended magazine for the weapon, Dean said. The U.S. Marine Corps released Long's service record, which said he served from 2008 to 2013, and his ranking was a corporal as a machine gunner, ABC News reported.

Madeleine Carr, the paper's editor, told CNN on Thursday morning that she was also waiting to hear back from some friends who had gone to the bar to attend College Country night. "When people call him a 'cop's cop, ' what they're saying is that he was the type of cop who other cops looked up to, someone who goes beyond what a normal cop does".

Thousand Oaks is about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles and It's considered one of the safest large cities in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime statistics, USA Today reported.

"Here are my words: I want gun control", said Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, her voice shaking with grief and rage.

Once he helped get people down the street to safety, Wennerstrom said he and others went back to help anyone remaining. Helus died early Thursday at a hospital.

A witness to the shootings, Taylor Von Molt, 21, who said she was a promotor at the bar, said the gunman wore a black mask with a bandana covering the bottom of his face, and a black hoodie.

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Dean, who was set to retire on Friday.

Customer Matt Wennerstrom, 20, told several news outlets that once he saw the shooter open fire, he quickly ushered people behind a pool table. My son thought it was a joke so I pulled him down and got some cover.

Route 91 was a music festival and the Borderline bar is a popular venue for line dancing. "I don't think there's anything more heroic than what he did".

Sgt. Eric Buschow, who said Helus was a friend, described him as a "cop's cop".

"I know that, being a religious person, that God is never going to give me anything more than I can handle", he said. A 24-mile procession was held for Helus before noon, as a hearse carried his body from the bar to the Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office.
