Who is the suspect in the Thousand Oaks shooting?

First responders are seen outside Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks California

The sheriff said Long was believed to have killed himself late on Wednesday at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the city of Thousand Oaks. 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. He was later found dead at or near an office in the business. It's unclear whether he took his own life or if the attack was terror-related.

"Ron was a hardworking dedicated sheriff's sergeant". He died at a hospital after being shot numerous times. The others killed have not been identified.

About ten other victims were wounded.

Other neighbours said they did not recognise the suspect's name, adding that his mother would wave as she drove by as they watered their lawn.

The incident happened at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the town of Thousand Oaks, a quiet, upscale residential suburb of Los Angeles.

Survivors described moments of panic and heroism.

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 bad shooting in California".

"(He) said to her, 'Hey I got to go handle a call.

'All I wanted to do was get as many people out as possible, ' he said while wearing a bloodstained t-shirt.

Erika Sigman, 19, was another witness.

In the hours after the shooting concerned family members gathered at a nearby teen center waiting to learn the fate of loved ones. A reporter spoke to a man who had not heard from his son.

"Our organization's thoughts and prayers are with the families and the victims that were affected by this bad act that took place in our area", McVay said.

It was "college night" at the bar, and many students were there to learn the country two-step. Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long.

At an earlier news conference Sheriff Dean's voice cracked as he spoke about Sgt. Helus, "He went in to save lives".

"And then after we had gotten everyone, the few boys that were shuffling people through, we basically jumped out the window and then just pushed everyone down the side along the fence towards the parking lot".

Dean also praised his sheriff's sergeant Helus, calling him "hero". The highway patrolman cleared the perimeter and pulled Helus out.

Witnesses told CNN the attacker had a large handgun, wore a black trench coat and glasses and threw smoke grenades inside bar.
