A Fox News anchor offered "thoughts and prayers" to the families of country music fans killed in a Thousand Oaks mass shooting, after one victim's mother specifically said she did not want any. Authorities believe he killed himself. "They hid up in the attic, they hid in the bathroom", Dean said, describing the scene as "like hell".

'I heard shots and that's not a noise you mistake for anything else, ' said Matt Wennerstrom, who was in the bar at the time of the deadly incident, said.

The official, speaking anonymously to Associated Press, said Long had posted on social media about whether people would believe he was sane - but would not give any more details on what he wrote. He touched so many people, his father said.

"I am in the dark right now, and it's actually tearing me up", he said. Long served in the Marines for almost five years as a military machine gunner and was deployed to Afghanistan, Defense Department records show.

He added that as his son was heading out the door to go to the bar that night, the last thing he said to Cody was, "Son, I love you". Eleven people inside the bar were killed along with a cop who was one of the first on the scene.

'He reloaded and then just kept on popping them off, ' said Tim, John's stepdad.

People escaped the bar by using chairs to break windows, while others reportedly sheltered inside the venue's toilets. 'There was just young people like young, 18, 19, 20 just having a great time. And this maniac came in and started shooting at people.

A mental health specialist with the crisis team who met Long said he may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but chose to not detain him.

Tensions between Mrs May and her DUP allies have been exposed amid concerns about measures aimed at avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland.

The extended magazine Long allegedly used can not be legally purchased in California under a 2000 law.

Deputies were called to Long's house in response to a disturbance in April this year and "felt he might be suffering from PTSD, the fact he was a veteran and had been in the corps", he said.

Last year, a country music festival in Las Vegas was the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern United States history. This time, the 27-year-old didn't survive.

Among the other victims were Cody Coffman, 22, who had been planning to join the military and was looking forward to the arrival of a baby sister later this month.

A day earlier, the facility had been the location where grieving family members had gathered and received the grim news on the fate of loved ones who had not returned from the Borderline Bar and Grill, where a Marine combat veteran went on a shooting rampage Wednesday.

"Only thing I can attribute it to is God", he told KABC on Thursday, "his protective hand over me that night on October 1 (last year in Las Vegas), and last night".

His first move as he entered the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks was shoot the bouncer.
