Wennerstrom told CBS News he was a weekly regular at the Borderline Bar & Grill, and the other customers were like "family".

"It's there", Mr Coffman told CNN.

Coffman sobbed while recalling his relationship with his son to reporters Thursday.

One college student who said he was a regular at the Borderline told NBC Los Angeles he had at least 10 friends inside.

"Firefighting has been something I've been interested and wanted to do for a long time".

Coffman said he bonded with Cody over outdoor activities - he coached his son in baseball starting from age 3 and the two often went fishing together. I can not believe that it's happened in my family.

Witnesses said that people dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence. I am so sorry for them. "I am speechless and heartbroken".

In Las Vegas and Thousand Oaks, country music fans were the victims.

"He said Helus was on the phone with his wife when he got the report of the shooting and he told her, "'Hey, I have to go.

"I have not got any information, I am in the dark right now and it's actually tearing me up". One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed. Both were working when the shooter began firing on patrons, Laura Meek said.

Protesters Across US Warn Trump Against Derailing Mueller Probe
Mueller is investigating Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election and any collusion by Trump's campaign. He said he knows little about Whitaker, other than his portrayal as a staunch "Trump loyalist".

"He went in to make it so that other people are OK, you know". My parents let me go here.

Cody, a star athlete, was hoping to join the military before his death and had been talking to army recruiters.

President Donald Trump ordered the United States flag at the White House and other government buildings to be flown at half-staff following the shooting, which came just 10 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Helus was shot multiple times upon entering the bar and later died at a hospital.

California Lutheran University canceled classes Thursday following the shooting. He doesn't know how a second mass shooting will affect him down the road.

Many people had minor injuries, including some that came from the attempt to flee, Dean said.

Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the department and an officer from the California Highway Patrol were the first to arrive on the scene just before 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

A sheriff's captain says eleven people were shot late Wednesday when a suspect opened fire in a crowded Southern California bar.

Police identified 28-year-old Ian David Long as the suspect in the shooting at a Thousand Oaks, Calif., bar that left at least 13 dead, including the suspected gunman.

Officers scramble to the California bar, which was said to be popular with local students.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said on Thursday morning that investigators had not been able to determine a motive.
