California shooting: Gunman revealed as US Marine Corps veteran Ian David Long

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

The incident was reported at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the town of Thousand Oaks, a quiet, upscale residential suburb of Los Angeles.

Authorities have identified the suspect who killed 12 people at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif., as 28-year-old Ian David Long.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean says sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus responded to the scene and was shot after he entered the building. They say the gunman did not say anything. "We don't know where the other ones are, we don't know if they're OK or not".

Police said that hundreds of people were in the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks and shots were still being fired when officers arrived.

The Borderline, which opened in the 1980s, calls itself "Ventura County's largest country dance hall and live music venue" with 2,500 square feet of wide-open dance floor, according to its website.

In a chilling coincidence, numerous people inside were also survivors of the Route 91 shooting - the most deadly in modern United States history.

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

It is believed that Long killed himself at the bar, Dean said.

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.

There has been a shooting at a bar in Southern California which has left 12 people dead, including a sheriff's deputy and the gunman.

"There was probably three or four", one young man told local television station KABC.

The killer also deployed a smoke device, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

A man and his stepfather interviewed by ABC7 Eyewitness News said they heard about a dozen shots before they were able to flee out the front door.

Helus, who died at a hospital early Thursday, is survived by his wife and son.

"I've learned it doesn't matter what community you're in", Dean told reporters when asked if he was surprised this happened in Thousand Oaks.

Media captionJason Coffman: "The last thing I said was 'Son, I love you".

"It's been a rough night for all of us", Buschow said, according to the report.

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

In yet another odd coincidence, one of the victims to be named in the Vegas shooting was Susan Smith from Simi Valley which is only miles from the site of the Borderline shooting.

"(He) said to her, "Hey I got to go handle a call.

"As soon as he walked in he had flawless form", said Whittler, who added she grew up in a military family.
