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

His handgun was created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber - but the extended magazine, which is illegal in California, held more bullets, Dean said. "We have no idea what the motive was at this point". 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.

The shooter reportedly stormed into the venue wearing a black trench coat, armed with smoke grenades and a firearm with a high-capacity magazine.

But Sheriff Dean has since said that the gunman died at the scene.

Sheriff Dean said the suspect is still unknown and an investigation is ongoing.

Mental health professionals sent to evaluate him concluded he did not need to be taken into custody, he said.

He said that there are at least "six victims including one deputy" who are still inside the bar.

Novaks said that Helus went into the building with "no idea" what to expect - only knowing he wanted to help those inside. At least 10 to 15 others were injured. "When you call 911, he's one of the guys you want showing up".

Colleagues of Sergeant Helus describe him as a friend and an exceptional man and officer. The highway patrolman cleared the perimeter and pulled Helus out, and waited as a SWAT team and scores more officers arrived. "He gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives, to save other people", Dean added.

Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow did not say how the gunman died. "For me, this is a heart that I'll never get back". "As far as I know, all of my friends are OK, safe", he said. I hear chairs being thrown out the window.

The gunfire started during line dancing, witnesses said.

Whittler explained that the crowd then began running for an exit, and she was caught on the floor and trampled on. I hit the ground.

"I started hearing these big pops".

"I can't tell you much about the shooter at this point", Kuredjian said.

The California man who killed a dozen people at a bar packed with college students was a former Marine who may have been suffering from PTSD, the Ventura County sheriff said. Some men ran toward them and said the gunman was coming.

"It was chaos, people jumping out of windows, hopping over gates and just trying to get out", he told the affiliate.

A neighbor, Tom Hanson, told local television station KTLA that he and other neighbors knew Long "had issues".

The father told CNN he can track his son's cell phone - and the tracking indicates it still was in the bar Thursday morning.

"While I was running away, people were dropping around me", Spady said. "That's the kind of boy Cody is", he said.

The bar is located in Thousand Oaks, Ventura County, about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

"Thousand Oaks is a very safe community", Kuredjian said.
