California bar shooting: Ian David Long identified as suspect

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

There was no known motive, he said.

Authorities were still working to identify the victims and inform their families.

At least one person was being treated for a gunshot wound, while more than a dozen others suffered minor injuries after jumping out of windows and diving under tables during the attack.

The bar has a college night on Wednesdays for ages 18 and up, according to its website.

He told reporters when officers arrived at the bar to reports of shots being fired, they could hear gunfire.

Authorities are investigating reports that the gunman used a smoke bomb but said they had not found anything to support this.

"I just started hearing these big pops - pop, pop, pop".

"I looked over and he was shooting at people".

Ian served in the Marines from 2008 to 2013 and toured Afghanistan, rising to Corporal rank before he left. "Acting a little irrationally", he said. Mental health specialists talked to him and didn't feel he qualified to be detained under the state's "5150" mental health detention law, Dean said. His.45 caliber handgun was legally owned, but the magazine had reportedly been modified to hold more rounds.

He said the gunman had apparently shot himself. "I don't know if she is alive", he said.

A woman in the background added: "He was kind of a loner".

. He described Helus as a cop's cop.

Dean said his officers had several interactions with Long, including an April call to his home.

"While I was running away, people were dropping around me", Spady said.

"He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation."

Helus, a 29-year veteran of the force, leaves behind a wife and son, according to Dean. Authorities found him dead inside an office adjacent to the bar's entryway, Dean said. "Just an awesome investigator".

He said Sergeant Helus was on the SWAT team for much of his career and worked in narcotics and investigations. His last words to her were "Hey I gotta go handle a call". "As far as I know, all of my friends are OK, safe", he said.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference early Thursday that a sheriff's deputy was also shot and taken to a hospital. "A lot of them do live nearby in Thousand Oaks so a lot of them did get to a students house", she added.

It was the second mass shooting in less than two weeks, after a gunman killed 11 Jewish worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue on October 27.

"That's a pretty challenging question", Sheriff Dean said.

President Donald Trump has ordered that the USA flag be flown at half-staff in respect for the victims of the shooting.

Asked what the scene inside the bar was like, Sheriff Dean said, "Like ... hell".
