Sheriff's deputy speaks to a potential witness as they stand near the scene, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people.

The California man who killed a dozen people at a bar packed with college students was a former Marine who may have been suffering from PTSD, the Ventura County sheriff said.

The gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, at about 11.20pm on Wednesday night. He died at a hospital early Thursday. The weapon usually holds 10 rounds and one in the chamber, but the gunman used an extended magazine in this shooting, Dean said.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said on Thursday that Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber handgun created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber. No other information on them was immediately known.

The Borderline bar is a popular spot for university students, and on Wednesday night was hosting College Country Night.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured. Police said he killed himself.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in the USA since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago. Likewise, the shooter is dead, along with the first police officer to enter the bar.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials were seen visiting a residence believed to be Long's in Newbury Park, California, which neighbors Thousand Oaks. Dean says Helus was his longtime friend and gym partner and planned to retire soon after 29 years with the force.

"When the officers went in and made re-entry, they found him already deceased", Dean said, according to ABC 6.

The suspect, who was armed with a.45-caliber handgun, was found deceased at the Borderline Bar and Grill, the scene of the shooting in the city of Thousand Oaks northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

Cody Coffman had plans to join the Army, his father, Jason, told reporters Thursday.

Law enforcement had several previous contacts with Long, including in April, when officers were called to a disturbance at his home, the sheriff said.

"(He) said to her, 'Hey I got to go handle a call.

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.

Helus was one of the first on the scene and was struck multiple times when he went through the front door, the sheriff's office said.
