"Multiple fatalities" in shooting at bar in Thousand Oaks, California

In a news briefing Thursday, authorities identified the suspect as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former Marine.

This undated photo provided by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department shows Sheriff's Sgt Ron Helus, who was killed in the shooting.

The victims of the shooting included multiple students from nearby Pepperdine University, as it was college night at the bar.

UPDATE A police officer was among 13 dead, including the gunman, at a shooting in a bar in Thousand Oaks, California. He said he regrets not staying in the bar to help other victims.

The extent of the surviving victims' injuries wasn't immediately known.

The bar has a college night on Wednesdays for ages 18 and up, according to its website.

Law enforcement has not confirmed witness reports that Long set off smoke bombs at the bar. "There are a few people we can't get a hold of, but in these situations people usually turn off their phones to be safe so I'm not gonna get too anxious". Deputies are at Long's home, seeking to serve a search warrant, Dean said.

He joined the Marines in 2008 and rose to the rank of corporal before leaving active service in 2013, Marine spokesman Joseph Butterfield wrote in an email.

His son, Cody, 22, was there with friends - and while his friends got out, they didn't know where Cody was, he told CNN and HLN.

Dean said investigators had not found any type of assault rifle within the bar.

Sheriff Dean added Long obtained the murder weapon - a Glock 21.45 calibre handgun - legally, but the weapon had an illegal magazine extension. After Wennerstrom realized shots had been fired, he said he grabbed as many others as he could and took shelter under a pool table.

"I am very emotional right now", he said. "Thank you to Law Enforcement", the president said in another tweet.

Colleagues of Helus describe him as a friend and an exceptional man and officer.

"Upon going through the front door, (Helus) was struck multiple times with gunfire", Dean said.

GOP keeps Senate control for 2 more years, triumph for Trump
The GOP's successes were fueled by a coalition that's decidedly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have college degrees. Twenty-five percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election.

"He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation."

Sergeant Helus was shot and severely wounded.

By the time they entered the bar again the gunfire had stopped, and they found 12 people dead inside, including the gunman.

The California Highway Patrol officers that accompanied Helus into the bar ended up rescuing him when Long opened fire. "As far as I know, all of my friends are OK, safe", he said.

Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow did not say how the gunman died.

People comfort each other outside the scene of a shooting, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, California.

The massacre was the fourth mass shooting in the United States in less than two weeks. He said he had assumed Long must be getting treatment of some kind.
