He said a highway patrol officer who happened to be pulling someone over was nearby. Fellow officers are calling him a hero.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean suggested that Long may have been suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

"I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military", Tom Hanson said. "Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant". He gave his all. And tonight ... he died a hero. Eleven people inside were found shot dead, and others wounded.

California Governor Jerry Brown released a statement on the shooting.

Dani Merrill, who survived both Vegas and Borderline, was among mourners at a packed theater Thursday honoring Orfanos and the others who lost their lives in the shooting at the bar.

Justin Meek, 23, was a recent California Lutheran University graduate.

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Dean, who was set to retire on Friday.

Cody Coffman, 22, was head umpire for a baseball league and was looking to join the Army.

"As soon as I identified where the target was, or where the threat was, I grabbed at least two people around me and yanked them as hard as I could to the nearest exit", he said.

Alaina Housley, 18, was a freshman at Pepperdine University, and the niece of actress Tamera Mowry, who confirmed her passing with this statement - quote - "Alaina was an incredible young woman". The couple talked to the Hollywood Reporter about the tragic death of their niece. "Our hearts are very broken".

Shootings of any kind are extremely rare in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Los Angeles, just across the county line. "We are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner".

Noel Sparks was a camp counselor for her church youth program and a student at Moorpark College. Her aunt, Patricia Sparks, said that Noel was an "all-around good girl".

She said Long was so angry that she feared he would return to kill her and broke down when recalling her reaction to finding out he was behind the mass shooting. Having survived last year's massacre in Las Vegas, he knew only too well what gunfire sounds like, even amid loud music.

Police in hazmat suits inspect the Borderline Bar and Grill. He was a strength coach at Royal High School and owner of Rivalry Roasters coffee shop.

Rams veteran offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth has challenged teammates to step up in the wake of Thursday's mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where the team practices.

Blake Dingham was 21. "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..."
