Authorities: Gunman shoots 11 at California bar

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

Twelve people, including a police officer, have been killed after a gunman opened fire in a southern California bar.

In a news briefing Thursday, authorities identified the suspect as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former Marine.

Helus died at about 2 a.m.at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks.

Police said the gunman was found dead inside the bar on the outskirts of Los Angeles although it was not immediately clear if he was killed by officers or shot himself.

Dean says around 10 other people were shot and wounded.

Multiple other victims with different levels of injury have been confirmed.

Kuredjian said hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at 11:20 p.m., and shots were still being fired when deputies arrived.

The bar's website says it hosts College Country Night every Wednesday.

The shooting at the Las Vegas country music festival on October 1, 2017 left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

The massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in the USA since 17 students and teachers were slain at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago.

Police had several contacts with Long previously.

At least 200 people were reportedly inside the Borderline Bar and Grill, which was hosting a university student night, at the time of the attack.

The sheriff of Ventura County, California is describing what happened late Wednesday night when a gunman killed 12 people at a bar.

"I heard a gunshot, I turned around and I saw him shoot a couple more times", California Lutheran University student Teylor Whittler told KABC.

During a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean stated Helus was married with an adult son.

"The reality is that these types of incidents can happen really at any place, at any time, even in communities that are considered extremely safe", he added.

Thousand Oaks is about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles and It's considered one of the safest large cities in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime statistics, USA Today reported.

Three people were seen carrying someone, and later paramedics applied bandages to the man, who has blood on his back.

Cody Coffman, 22, went to the Borderline Bar and Grill most Wednesday nights to line dance.

Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, according to the sheriff.

"Within a split second, everybody yelled "get down", she said. "That's the stuff I'm truly going to miss", he said. Another witness said the gunman wielded what looked like a sub-machine gun.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", said Sergeant Eric Buschow.
