  • At least 11 people injured in California bar shooting

"A friend yelled, 'Everybody down!' We were hiding behind tables trying to keep ourselves covered".

"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said.

Cody was planning to join the army, his father said, having recently celebrated his birthday. "First thing I said is, 'please don't drink and drive.' Last thing I said is, 'I love you'".

It was the nation's deadliest such attack since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago. "From what I heard, the gunman started shooting at the front desk".

A law enforcement officer said the suspect used a.45-caliber handgun, created to hold a magazine of 10 rounds. The gun was legally purchased, he added. Dean told reporters that there was no indication the suspect was targeting bar employees.

He said the only weapon found in an initial sweep was a handgun. "Maybe there was a motive for this particular night, but we have no information leading to that at all".

The assailant, identified as Ian David Long, a troubled former machine gunner who served a tour in Afghanistan, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Within 15 minutes, other officers arrived. He told her he loved her and hung up to respond.

On Thursday morning, he shared a tearful phone call with authorities who told him his son had been shot. I knew it was live.

Neighbours said Thursday they would hear loud, aggressive fights between the two. He said he was "dumbfounded" by the bloodshed. He was described as wearing a "black shirt, black hat, and black glasses", and was covered in tattoos.

"But unfortunately, you go into the unknown, you know there's shots being fired, obviously the suspect was in there and ready for him", he said.

Helus rushed toward the shooting and immediately exchanged fire with the shooter inside the bar, Dean said.

Asked about his team talk at half-time, Mourinho continued: "I started off positive". "Now we can focus on Manchester United ". My assistants were saying this is the best warm-up of the season.

Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar. He died in an area hospital Thursday morning.

When Long entered, people screamed and fled to all corners of the bar, while a few people threw barstools through the windows and helped dozens to escape, witnesses said. 'I know where I'm going when I die, so I wasn't anxious to sacrifice myself'. "I don't know what to tell other people", Coffman said, his head hanging.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price", he said.

"She's a really good kid", he said, fighting tears, before her relatives learned their fears of her death were true.

Thousand Oaks is about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles and It's considered one of the safest large cities in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime statistics, USA Today reported.

"This is not going to be easy for our family for a very long time", he said.

"I was actually about to leave when you start hearing pop, pop, pop".

Alaina Housley, a student at Pepperdine University, was reported missing following the shooting by her suitemate.

"It just rings and rings", he said. "My heart goes out to his family - I can't imagine what they're going through right now". That exit leads to a patio where people smoke. "I saw him point to the back of the cash register ... and he just kept firing". Jason said, "I talked to him last night before he headed out the door".

"It looked like he knew what he was doing", Whitler told KABC-TV.

Long's body was found inside an office adjacent to the bar's entrance. He was identified as Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran about a year from retiring.
