Gunman and 12 others dead in California bar shooting

Authorities brought in a mental health specialist who concluded that Long could not be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation but anxious the 28-year-old Marine veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder. Among them is whether Long believed a former girlfriend might have been at the bar, which was filled with about 150 people on its popular college night that attracts students from several nearby schools.

Investigators will examine that evidence along with any surveillance or witness video and Long's digital footprint in order to "paint a picture" of his state of mind, the Federal Bureau of Investigation official said.

Helus was married with a grown son and took up fly fishing a few years ago, Buschow said. When the gunman shot his.45-calibre pistol, he killed.

"Obviously he had something going on in his head that would cause him to do something like this", Mr Dean said. All of the injured suffered cuts, bruises and other minor injuries in frantic attempts to escape the gunfire.

Social media platforms deleted that and any other posts by Long after Wednesday night's massacre, while Instagram and Facebook typically refuse to comment on individual accounts.

A second law enforcement official, Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Garo Kuredjian, said that - based on time stamps - the gunman apparently stopped shooting inside the bar and posted to Instagram.

Dominique Colell, who coached girls' track and field at the high school where Long was a sprinter, remembers an angry young man who could be verbally and physically combative.

Their race, and the one for governor, appear headed for mandatory recounts, which would further delay a final outcome. Johns County, compared to 38 rejected ballots in Nassau County and 10 rejected ballots in Clay County.

Colell said she wanted to kick Long off the team, but the boy's coach urged her to reconsider because that could compromise his goal of joining the Marines.

"Yeah... I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is "hopes and prayers"... or "keep you in my thoughts"... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..." The sheriff said the gunman has not been identified and there was no known motive for the shooting. "He was the only athlete that I was scared of".

The Marine Corps said Long entered active duty in Los Angeles in August 2008 and served until March 2013. At the White House on Friday, Trump touted his efforts to fund work on post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans and ignored questions about stricter gun control laws. Donald Macleud could hear loud arguments across his backyard fence.

Long's service began when he was 18 and lasted almost five years, including a seven-month tour in Afghanistan, according to the Pentagon. "I suspected he had a gun there because I heard a gunshot one night, over a year ago".

Neighbor Tom Hanson said Long lived in the home with his mother. He just started grabbing me.

Deputies responded and a mental health specialist who assessed Long anxious he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder but found no grounds to hospitalize him.
