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

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

Ventura County Geoff Dean addresses the media about the shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Nov. 8, 2018.

The sheriff's department and the wider community are mourning the "hero" officer today, who was one of the 12 people killed in the mass shooting in Southern California.

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

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and grown son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, who choked back tears several times as he talked about a man who was also his longtime friend.

Dean said he did not know of his motive.

The attack on the bar - a college favorite and was hosting a country music event - was the nation's deadliest shooting since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago.

President Trump today praised the bravery of police in responding to the shooting.

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety.

Ron Helus was among those killed, authorities said.

Nobbs said police still couldn't rule out the possibility that there had been other passengers in the vehicle when it broke down. Initially located were a 19-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a three-year-old boy, described as a young family.

ABC Reporter Marc Brown said: "We are hearing that some of the people who were at Borderline, were also at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, scene of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history".

At least 13 people were shot, including a sheriff's deputy, during the incident at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

"This guy just came out of nowhere and came out with a gun and shot people in Thousand Oaks, California", Harrah said.

Helus had been at the department for almost three decades, and was planning to retire within the next year, the sheriff said, choking back tears.

Speaking at a news conference today, the sheriff said the suspect had been identified as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

By the time they entered the bar again the gunfire had stopped, and they found 12 people dead inside, including the gunman.

The gunman opened fire at around 11:20 p.m. (1:20 a.m. CT Thursday).

He said both they both managed to escape.

Wearing a black jacket and sunglasses, the suspect shot a security guard and young female cashier before showering the Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks near Los Angeles with bullets. She said everyone yelled "Get down!" and then it was silent for a few seconds. "I could still hear gunshots after everyone left", the Times quoted the man as saying. A highway patrolman pulled him out and waited for scores of other officers to converge on the bar.
