He survived the Thousand Oaks shooting and the Las Vegas massacre

He was found dead at the scene.

The official would not give additional details on what the 28-year-old former Marine posted on his Facebook and Instagram accounts.

"The weapon was designed in California to hold a magazine of 10 rounds and one in the chamber, but he had an extended magazine on it", the sheriff told a news conference on Thursday morning.

Officials have not revealed how the gunman died.

The mother of one of the Las Vegas shooting survivors who tragically died in the Thousand Oaks shooting is speaking out.

"We have no idea what the motive was at this time", Dean said.

Having survived last year's massacre in Las Vegas, he knew only too well what gunfire sounds like, even amid loud music.

SARGEANT Ron Helus was on the phone to his wife when reports of a shooting first came through. He praised law enforcement, saying, "Great bravery shown by police" and "God bless all of the victims and families of the victims".

Kelly has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, which killed 58 people.

Dean also said police called their crisis intervention team to the home, and the mental health team, but they declined to take him to a psychiatric facility for involuntary commitment.

After hearing gunshots inside the bar, the pair entered the venue but Sgt Helus was immediately hit with a hail of bullets. Sergeant Helus was shot and severely wounded.

Other than the call in April, Long's only other contact with authorities came after a traffic collision and after he alleged he was the victim of a violent encounter in 2015 at another bar in Thousand Oaks, the sheriff said.

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, choking back tears. "He went in to save lives, to save people". "It's hard to sleep after these kinds of things", said Dani Merrill, who lived through the Vegas shooting and escaped the Borderline bloodshed at the bar by running out the loading dock. Thank you to Law Enforcement. I was shot because I'm Jewish. And the gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place.

"All of a sudden we heard the "bang, bang" of the gunshots and it just started going insane and people were pushing".

"They ran out of the back doors, they broke windows". He was one of four children and two adults shot in the tragedy almost two decades ago and lives near the Borderline Bar & Grill. "The security guard...was down". And he didn't come home last night, and the two words I want you to write are: 'gun control.' Right now, so that no one else goes through this. Police said the gunman appeared to fire at random.

The massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since 17 classmates and teachers were gunned down at a Parkland, Florida school nine months ago.
