The man who shot and killed 12 people in Thousand Oaks, California, was identified on Monday as Ian David Long.

Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus and a passing highway patrolman were responding to several 911 calls when they arrived at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at about 11:20 p.m., the sheriff said.

"Obviously he had something going on in his head that caused him to do something like this", he said.

"Great bravery shown by police", he said.

A next-door neighbor said he called authorities about six months ago when he heard loud banging and shouting come from the ranch-style home where Long and his mother lived.

Mr Dean said the other prior encounters were a traffic accident and an incident when he was the victim of a beating at a bar.

A crisis intervention specialist was called to his house and talked to him, but left without taking him into custody, Dean said.

"He was totally committed", Dean said. The 28-year-old was on active duty with the marines from August 2008 to March 2013, CNN reported, citing the Department of Defense.

The gunman entered the California bar dressed in black and armed with a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun, according to the Los Angeles Times. It's unclear whether the magazine was legally purchased. "And we feel for the people involved, that it happened to". "We don't know if he reloaded his weapon or not, we're still interviewing witnesses".

During Wednesday's shooting, Kelly said he threw two of his friends to the floor and covered them with his body.

"It appears he walked up to the scene". "I saw the security guard was down and he had been shot".

"But unfortunately, you go into the unknown, you know there's shots being fired, obviously the suspect was in there and ready for him", he said.

People comfort each other as they stand near the scene in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people November 8, 2018. He died at the hospital.

"I never thought I would see the things around the country that would happen, but I've learned that it doesn't matter what community you're in, it doesn't matter how safe your community is - it can happen anywhere", Sheriff Geoff Dean said during a press conference.

"He said Helus was on the phone with his wife when he got the report of the shooting and he told her, "'Hey, I have to go.

"We lost a hero", he said.

Witnesses described the instant a fun night out at a California bar turned into bloody chaos when a gunman opened fire, blasting "everything" and slaughtering 12 people.

At least one person was being treated for a gunshot wound, while more than a dozen others suffered minor injuries after jumping out of windows and diving under tables during the attack.
