Father confirms son, 22, was among Thousand Oaks shooting victims

According to TMZ, Long was posting to Instagram during the shooting, and investigators discovered the videos hours afterward.

Authorities have yet to determine a motive and are exploring all possibilities.

Authorities trying to make sense of why a gunman killed 12 people at a Southern California bar are not publicly discussing what they've learned, but at least one Instagram post he made after beginning the massacre has emerged as an early focus.

This 2017 photo from the California Department of Motor Vehicles shows Ian David Long.

Long shot and killed 12 people, including a police sergeant, at the bar.

He said the death toll may have been even higher were it not for Sgt Helus' bravery.

Tel was killed at the Borderline, a bar and restaurant that had reportedly become something of a refuge, a place to gather for solace, for Vegas survivors in the area. "I want gun control, and I hope to God nobody else sends me any more prayers".

Telemachus Orfanos, 27, died with 11 others inside the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousands Oaks, California, after a lone gunman opened fire in the bar, BBC News reported.

Gillum Concedes Gov Race To DeSantis, Extending GOP's Grip Over Sunshine State
Republican Ron DeSantis will be the next governor of Florida after Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded the race late Tuesday night. Despite all the hype surrounding Gillum, he failed to gain as many votes as his senatorial counterpart, incumbent Democrat Sen.

After the ceremony, she said she's most upset that the bloodshed is now affecting where she lives.

At the White House on Friday, President Trump touted his efforts to fund work on post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans and ignored questions about stricter gun control laws.

After that, Colell said, she demanded that Long "Get out!" and kicked him off the squad. She could often hear him yelling and cursing, but several months ago, unusually loud banging and shouting prompted her husband to call authorities.

"I walked in and you could feel the devastation among people", he said.

Wednesday's mass shooting has had a profound affect on the Los Angeles Rams organization, in part due to the fact that their practice facility is located in Thousand Oaks, just miles from the Borderline Bar & Grill.

Helus was the first officer to confront Long before Long eventually killed himself.

Dominique Colell says she had run-ins with then-sprinter Ian David Long that convinced her that he was "mentally disturbed" and had "anger issues" before he left to join the U.S. Marine Corps.

"As soon as I saw him start to reload, I told my friends to run out the back exit and we sprinted out". "I didn't know [about] PTSD, but his girlfriend would kind of ask him about things going on with him, because he'd get really upset sometimes and kind of shut down and he wouldn't want to talk about it to people". Thousand Oaks is located about 65 kilometres north-west of Los Angeles, the state capital.
