Trump calls Thousand Oaks shooter a 'sick puppy'

The sheriff said it was possible that Long had suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. The president said he viewed it as a mental health issue and that Long's history is now being scrutinized.

In other words, a mass shooting takes place somewhere in America nearly daily.

"We believe he shot himself", said Dean, who earlier described it as a "horrific scene".

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said that after the shooting had stopped, Long was found dead in a back room in the bar.

Police then regrouped and, after waiting for reinforcements, were able to enter the bar.

"It's a horrific scene in there", Mr Dean said in a press conference at a vehicle park. Helus was shot immediately, Dean said.

"I've probably had 200 bear and 3 mountain lion encounters", Helus told a Facebook friend who jokingly asked if he were part animal. "We do not want any more lives lost, so please listen when they tell you to evacuate". A Marine combat veteran killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

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

"There was a community there".

Kelly has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, which killed 58 people.

"I was at Route 91 and I know many people there last night were, too", 24-year-old Jessica Maldoon said, according to Buzzfeed News.

"You know, I think it's going to be something that we're going to have to come together and move past". He was always happy. I fish all the time and that poor boy would come with whether he liked it or not.

"He was just a great guy, a gentle soul", Buschow said.

Trump was speaking with reporters outside the White House on Friday morning when he was asked how gun policy might help reduce the number of mass shootings.

"He wasn't unhinged, he wasn't violent".

The gunfire briefly quieted, the sheriff said, as people scrambled to hide in restrooms and in attics. "I don't want thoughts". "God bless all of the victims and families of the victims".

The gunman has been named as 28-year-old Marine veteran Ian David Long. He was honorably discharged with the rank of corporal in 2013. "I am graduating with a B.S.in Athletic Training in two months", he wrote in the post.

Since that incident, Hanson said, things had quieted down. Of the 12 killed, at least one was a college student: Alaina Housley of Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Long did not complete his degree. The bar is near California Lutheran University and several other schools.

The killer deployed a smoke device and used a.45-calibre handgun.

"He was excited to get out so he could go back home, ride his motorcycle again and finish school".

During his service, Long's marriage fell apart. They went through windows. Armed with a knife in case an attacker came in, he hunkered down and waited with 40 other people for four hours.

"I started hearing these big pops".

"There's a fence right there so I said, "Everyone get over the fence as quickly as you can", and I followed them over". She rolled down her window and told him there was an active shooter inside.

Witnesses said Long did not utter a word to explain why he had chosen this place, this night, these people, this obscene and wasteful end. "And that's what's really blowing my mind, it's a really safe area".

The shooting began about 11:20 p.m. local time. The Department of Veterans Affairs said on Thursday that Long was not enrolled in VA health care at any time. Other footage showed civilians carrying out injured people from the bar and tending to them.

Court records show Long was married in 2009, separated in 2011 and divorced in 2013, The Associated Press reports.

In April this year police were called to his home five miles from the bar, where he lived with his mother, because he was behaving angrily and erratically.

Orfanos' mother, Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, was shaking with rage and grief when she spoke about how her son was unable to survive two mass killings. He told her, "I've got to go handle a call". After the shooting was over, Kelly said he and another Marine friend helped victims alongside first responders. Crites would wave, but Long wouldn't wave back, he told CNN affiliate KABC.
