What we know about the California mass shooting

The gunman, identified by police as 28-year-old Ian David Long, was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound following the Wednesday night massacre at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, a suburb 40 miles (64 km) northwest of Los Angeles, law enforcement officials said.

The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer inside the door, the sheriff said.

Dean said Long was a Marine veteran, and said there was a chance he suffered from PTSD. Coffman broke down as he told reporters how his last words to his son as he went out that night were not to drink and drive and that he loved him.

"He would close the garage and be playing music and dancing in there, like sweating".

Dean said his department had several previous contacts with Long, a former US Marine, including a call to his home in April, when deputies found him acting irate and irrationally. "He was a sweet guy who served his country and was using his GI Bill to go to college and get a degree to help more people", the friend said. "California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times". But Dean said the gun had an extended magazine that is illegal in California. "I don't want thoughts", she says.
