"I'm super upset that it happened in our home, and I feel very bad for the families that have to go through this", Merrill said at the vigil. It appears that Long then shot other security workers and employees inside and opened fire further inside the club, Dean said.
According to TMZ, Long was posting to Instagram during the shooting, and investigators discovered the videos hours afterward. Don MacLeod said he did not call police but avoided speaking with Ian Long.
A former classmate told TMZ that Long was bullied in high school because of a lazy eye, which the outlet says "affected him deeply". And after the first sound of shots it was silent for like, five seconds, and then a couple of guys next to me got up and started sprinting to the back door. Kuredjian said he could not confirm whether any of those shot were dead or the severity of their injuries.
Among the victims was Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, who was killed after responding to the scene of the attack. He and other first responders "ran toward danger", Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a vigil Thursday evening, calling Helus a hero.
President Donald Trump ordered the USA 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 died later at Los Robles Regional Medical Center.
Authorities in Southern California say a gunman killed 12 people late Wednesday during an attack at a bar and dance club. Between eight and 15 people suffered minor injuries and one person was a gunshot wound, Dean said at the news conference. "You're always over-analyzing people, trying to figure out if something were to go down, 'What would I do?'"
