Dean said Long was armed with a single handgun, a.45 caliber Glock 21, which he purchased legally. As far as whether the shooting in California and other recent mass shootings will deter people from wanting to go out to bars and nightclubs, the reaction was mixed. The ATF is now investigating how and when the weapon was purchased.

In a Facebook update attributed to Long by CNN, which said it was posted around the time of the shootings, he writes: "I hope people call me insane (laughing emojis). wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony?" Authorities were searching Long's home in Newbury Park, about five miles from the Borderline bar, and his vehicle for clues. Investigators will examine that evidence along with any surveillance or witness video and Long's digital footprint in order to "paint a picture" of his state of mind, the Federal Bureau of Investigation official said. Neighbor Tom Hanson had called the police with concerns about Long's behavior. That shooting came days after a gunman was suspected of killing two black patrons of a Kentucky supermarket after he apparently failed to get inside a black church.

"We haven't found any correlation", the sheriff said.

"They found 11 victims that had been killed", said Dean of the first response unit before detailing that the death of Helus brought the toll to 12, not including the gunman. Active law enforcement incident. He was a machine gunner.

Long was in the Marines from 2008 to 2013, rose to the rank of corporal and served in Afghanistan in 2010-11 before he was honorably discharged, the military said. His last duty assignment was at Kanehoe Bay, Hawaii.

The Marine Corps said Long earned several awards, including a Combat Action Ribbon and a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal.

"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.

Long's cousin, AJ Schramm, told CBS News Long's father passed away from cancer early in his life. He said Long became distant from family members upon his return from the Marines.

As The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday, a woman who gave her first name as Savannah said that two men carried her and her friend out through the window.

"She was genuinely caring, and loved serving people", Penrose said.

Dean said the shooting, which happened in a typically peaceful neighborhood, is emblematic of a wider change in the nation: "You know, I've been a cop for 41 years, and I never thought I would see the things around the country that would happen".

Investigators are also looking into whether Long may have had issues with college students, Milton reports. The Borderline, which includes a large dance hall along with several smaller areas for eating and drinking, was holding its regular "College Country Nights" when the attack took place.

In addition to the dead, one other person was wounded by gunfire, and as many as 15 others suffered minor injuries from jumping out windows or diving under tables, authorities said.

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.
