Gunman went on social media during bar attack

This undated photo provided by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department shows Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, who was killed Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in a deadly shooting at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

The official was briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Whitworth's contribution is already more than words: via Jay Glazer of The Athletic, he's donating this week's paycheck, about $60,000, to help the families of those killed and other victims.

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.

When Los Angeles Rams players woke on Thursday morning, it was to the awful news that the nation's latest mass shooting had been carried out just a few miles from their practice facility, in a city, Thousand Oaks, numerous players have also chosen to call home.

"I know that, being a religious person, that God is never going to give me anything more than I can handle", he said.

Nick Steinwender, Cal Lutheran student body president, told KTLA-TV he immediately started receiving messages about the shooting, and he and his roommate went to the scene to offer rides back to campus or moral support. A doorman at the bar and a police officer were among the dead. Three people were seen carrying someone, and paramedics applied bandages to the man, who had blood on his back. Then he said he saw the gunman, wearing a small black head covering and black hoodie and holding a handgun.

Cole Knapp, a freshman at Moorpark College, said he was inside the bar when the shooting began, but he thought at first that it was "just someone with an M-80, just kind of playing a prank".

Long died after killing a dozen people and wounding 15 more at the Borderline Bar & Grill, which was packed with college students. "There was an exit right next to me, so I went through that".

"He's a tactician so I have no doubt he employed the best tactics possible", he said. He and a California Highway Patrol officer ran into the bar where Helus was shot. He said he had friends who hadn't been accounted for. "I think we just wanted to find a way to come together and really just wrap our arms around the community that we live in and that we operate and work in".

A bipartisan bill to expand background checks, co-sponsored by Democrat Mike Thompson of California and Republican Peter King of NY, was likely to pass in the House, Drew Hammill, the current House minority leader's deputy chief of staff, told the Guardian. "It looked like he knew what he was doing".

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

This is a developing story.
