Thousand Oaks is located in Ventura County, about 65km from downtown Los Angeles.

At least 10 to 15 people also were injured, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said. "He stepped inside. It appears he turned to the right and shot several of the other security and other employees there. then began opening fire inside the nightclub", Dean said. The marine corps told news organizations that Long served in Afghanistan between November 2010 and June 2011.

The gunman was also dead at the scene, Dean added.

Long was "somewhat irate". According to the bar's website, a "College Country" night was going on at the time of the shooting. He died at the hospital. The others killed have not been identified.

About ten other victims were wounded. Another witness said the gunman wielded what looked like a sub-machine gun.

"Within a split second, everybody yelled "get down", she said.

Kuredjian said hundreds of people were inside the bar and shots were still being fired when deputies arrived. She said she hid with a group of strangers and they were holding hands.

Triumph responded by saying "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you". "Just like Trump did to you". Senate race in Texas was one of the most closely watched and expensive races in the country.

The one-hour procession through the streets was filled with sadness and silent salutes on numerous overpasses. One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed. We are still looking for the shooter.

The Borderline Bar & Grill lists a "College Country Night" which takes place on Wednesdays, and is said to be popular with students.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured.

At an earlier news conference Sheriff Dean's voice cracked as he spoke about Sgt. Helus, "He went in to save lives". The sheriff says he told Helus' wife "he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

Sgt. Eric Buschow, of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, said that "multiple fatalities" had been confirmed.

Helus was immediately hit with multiple gunshots, Dean said. He added that Helus was a "hard-working, dedicated Sheriff's Sergeant".

A gunman shot 11 people inside a crowded Southern California country dance bar Wednesday, and witnesses described a chaotic scene as panicked patrons smashed windows to get out.

President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting and praised law enforcement officers for their response. The bar is near the campus.
