Jason Coffman holds up his phone, showing a photo his 22-year-old son Cody, who died after a gunman opened fire on a bar in Thousand Oaks and killed 12 people on November 7, 2018.

Their statement to the media, sent to LAist, confirmed they'd gotten the worst news about her fate.

Ex-Marine Ian Long, 29, has been identified as the gunman who massacred 12 people before turning the gun on himself.

"Bar stools go through windows", he told ABC. "A friend yelled, 'Everybody down!' We were hiding behind tables trying to keep ourselves covered". Fifty to 60 families gathered at the Thousand Oaks Teen Center in search of missing loved ones.

"Oh, Cody, I love you, son", Coffman sobbed.

Champion said that witnessing the mass shooting helped him decide to become a firefighter.

It was the nation's deadliest such attack since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago.

President Donald Trump praised police for their "great bravery" in the California attack and ordered flags flown at half-staff in honor of the victims.

Long used a.45 caliber Glock handgun, which was purchased legally, Dean said. It's unclear whether the magazine was legally purchased. Law enforcement and emergency crews flooded the scene and police urged the public to avoid the area. Dean told reporters that there was no indication the suspect was targeting bar employees. "We haven't found any correlation", the sheriff said.

"We have no idea what the motive was at this point".

Dean said Long was a Marine veteran, and said there was a chance he suffered from PTSD.

Officials said shots were still being fired when the first officers arrived at the scene. He told her he loved her and hung up to respond.

Earlier this year, Long was cleared by a mental-health specialist after an encounter with police.

Maura Binkley Florida State University student Maura Binkley was a "beloved sister", her sorority said. Army said Beierle had been a second lieutenant and served as a field artilleryman.

Helus and a highway patrol officer exchanged gunfire with Long, he said, and the sergeant was shot "several times". When he arrived, Sergeant Helus heard gunfire coming from inside the bar, which was occupied by almost 200 college students.

Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar. Helus died at the hospital Thursday morning.

A witness to the shootings, Taylor Von Molt, 21, who said she was a promotor at the bar, said the gunman wore a black mask with a bandana covering the bottom of his face, and a black hoodie.

"Losing Ron, we go to the gym together and work out together", Dean said.

"I don't know what to say to the other people that are going to be going through the situation I am", he said.

Police say at least 10 people are known to have been injured and others are self-reporting with injuries at local hospitals.

"I know that, being a religious person, that God is never going to give me anything more than I can handle", he said.

"Unfortunately our young people, people at nightclubs, have learned that this may happen, and they think about that".

Housley's roommate said that she's devastated, but also angry.

Hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks when Long, armed with an uzi, unleashed a terrifying barrage of smoke bombs before opening fire and killing 12 people, leaving "blood everywhere".

Cody Coffman father, Jason, told CBS2 that Cody went to the bar every Wednesday night to line dance.

"I heard a gunshot, I turned around and I saw him shoot a couple more times", student Teylor Whittler, 19, told CNN affiliate KABC.
