A sheriff's captain says eleven people were shot late Wednesday when a suspect opened fire in a crowded Southern California bar. They found Long "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally", Dean said.

"It's got to change", said Gavin Newsom, governor-elect of California, at a news briefing on Thursday. "This doesn't happen anywhere else on planet Earth".

"Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with the people that it happened to", defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow said Thursday.

The gunman was tall and wearing all black with a hood over his head and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations at the scene.

The LA Times reported: "A lot of people in the Route 91 situation go here".

When deputies responded to the scene, he said, shots were still being fired. The gun was legally purchased, he added.

At least 13 people were killed, including the gunman.

"I was at the Las Vegas Route 91 mass shooting, it's a big thing for us, we're all a big family and unfortunately this family got hit twice", said Nicholas Champion.

Several people inside the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., were also at the Route 91 music festival last October, when gunman Stephen Paddock killed 58 and injured hundreds of others. The suspected shooter was also pronounced dead at the scene.

Sgt. Helus had a wife and son, and was due to retire in the next year from Ventura County, California Sheriff's Office. He was a 29-year veteran of the department and was considering retiring this year.

The shooter has not been identified, and authorities say they have not found any link to terror at this time.

Sheriff Geoff Dean, who choked back tears while talking about Helus, said his friend had been talking to his wife when the shooting call came in.

Officials have not released the names of all the victims as they worked to notify the families. Once safely outside, the uninjured hugged and awaited word about those still inside. "One bar stool and straight through a window", he told reporters. "We're proud of that", Fox said. He was deployed to Afghanistan from November 16, 2010 to June 14, 2011, the Marine Corps said.

Ron Helus was among those killed, authorities said. A 24-mile procession was held for Helus before noon, as a hearse carried his body from the bar to the Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office. Investigators are working out the details of what transpired, Dean added.

Federal Bureau of Investigation data suggests that Thousand Oaks is the third-safest city in America.

"If you were a victim of a crime, you want him investigating the case".

"Great bravery shown by police". The highway patrolman cleared the perimeter and pulled Helus out, and waited as a SWAT team and scores more officers arrived.
