California shooting: what we know about the gunman

California shooting: what we know about the gunman

"We don't know who shot anybody at this point".

Daniel Manrique was a native of Thousand Oaks and had served in Afghanistan with the Marine Corps, Task and goal reported.

He added, "Obviously he had something going on in his head that would cause him to do something like this".

He recalled their last conversation as the younger man was leaving for Borderline: "I talked to him last night before he headed out the door". Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long.

"It's got to change", said Gavin Newsom, governor-elect of California, at a news briefing on Thursday. It's unclear whether he took his own life or if the attack was terror-related.

"I already didn't wish it on anybody to begin with for the first time", Brendan Kelly said Thursday outside his Thousand Oaks home.

Asked what the scene inside the bar was like, Dean said, "Like ... hell". "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that, and I didn't want to get that close and disturb the scene and possibly disturb the investigation".

Law enforcement officials said 10 to 15 people went to hospitals with injuries, including at least one with gunshot wounds. But Dean said Long had used an extended magazine - illegal in California - during the shooting, which would enable the weapon to fire more rounds before needing to be reloaded.

President Donald Trump, who has resisted a surge in calls for tougher gun controls since 17 students were shot dead at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida earlier this year, said on Twitter that he had been "fully briefed on the awful shooting in California".

Long shot an unarmed security guard outside the bar before going inside, where he fired on security staff, CNN reported.

Trump ordered USA flags to be flown at half-staff at public buildings and grounds.

At Borderline Bar and Grill, a country-western dance bar that is a popular venue for college students, the night took a turn when a gunman entered and opened fire.

Pepperdine University said some of its students were at the bar, and it's working to identify them.

Dozens of lives were saved during Wednesday night'sCalifornia bar shooting thanks to a hero who smashed a window to help people escape.

He said that there are at least "six victims including one deputy" who are still inside the bar.

Other people described jumping out of windows, piling on top of each other in the bathrooms or hiding under pool tables.

"You just don't expect it to happen in Thousand Oaks". "I would open the garage and would be like, 'What are you doing?'" It doesn't matter how safe your community is. "It can happen anywhere". Hours into the tragedy no one had been reunified with a loved one. Jason Coffman told reporters Thursday that his oldest son, Cody Coffman, was killed.

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety. So are her aunt and uncle, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, former Fox News reporter Adam Housley.
