Mom whose son died in Calif. massacre doesn’t want your thoughts, prayers

The Latest 13 dead after California bar shooting including Sheriff's Deputy

People comfort each other as they sit near the scene, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people on "college night". "I don't sit in a room with my back to the door".

At an earlier news conference Sheriff Dean's voice cracked as he spoke about Sgt. Helus, "He went in to save lives".

The killer was identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former United States marine with mental health issues, with investigators trying to find the motive for the attack at a venue hosting a country music evening for students.

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Mr Dean, who was set to retire today. "I'm alive and I'm home safe". Records indicate he was on duty from August 2008 to March 2013, CNN reported.

Ms Teylor Whittler managed to escape the carnage unhurt.

The police captain also did not know whether the gunman had been "neutralised" or not calling the situation "fluid".

Family members are led into the Thousand Oaks Teen Center where families have gathered after a deadly shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Nov. 8, 2018.

His motive is still unclear and the ex-marine and Afghanistan veteran is believed to have killed himself as police moved in.

According to TMZ, Long was posting to Instagram during the shooting, and investigators discovered the videos hours afterward. "He had some kind of issues".

Dean described the scene inside the bar as "like hell".

The Blues - who are now unbeaten - climbed above Liverpool into second place after their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. The most important thing is we need to be prepared so that what happened to Liverpool doesn't happen to us.

In April, police attended his home and found him "somewhat irate" and "acting a little irrationally".

Dean said Long was a Marine veteran, and said there was a chance he suffered from PTSD. She says his fellow students made fun of him because he had a lazy eye, and it affected him deeply.

Officials say the suspect, who has not been identified, was found dead inside.

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

Dean said the slain deputy was on the phone with his wife before telling her he had to go respond to a scene. "I love you. I'll talk to you later".

Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus and a passing highway patrolman arrived at the Borderline around 11.20pm in response to several 911 calls, heard gunfire and went inside, the sheriff said.

Mr Matt Wennerstron, a 20-year-old college student and regular at the bar, said the shooter fired a short-barrelled pistol that apparently had a 10 to 15-round magazine. "From what I heard, the gunman started shooting at the front desk".

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety.

Another friend said he was part of a "community there" who would frequent the bar. It was holding its weekly country music and dance night at the time of the shooting.

Upon hearing the gunshots, he immediately grabbed people around him and brought them to the ground for cover.
