A few minutes later, Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer headed into the bar after hearing more shots, Dean said.

Authorities later identified the gunman as Ian David Long, 28, a Marine veteran, who was found dead inside after apparently killing himself.

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.

At a news conference on Thursday, Sheriff Geoff Dean said police had responded to a minor disturbance call at Long's house in April.

"They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him, and cleared him".

In that incident, deputies were called to his home, where Dean said Long was acting "irrationally".

It was the second mass shooting in America in less than two weeks.

They also were concerned that Long might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Dean said, "basing that (on) the fact that he was a veteran and had been in the Corps". "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that".

"We do not know how many rounds were in the weapon", he said.

This time, gunfire claimed a Navy veteran who had lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history a year ago.

Twelve people, including a police officer, have been killed after a gunman opened fire in a southern California bar.

"Great bravery shown by police", Trump tweeted. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims.

"I was confused because we didn't have any balloons at the time", she told CNN.

"Firefighting has been something I've been interested and wanted to do for a long time".

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety.

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

I have been fully briefed on the awful shooting in California. I hit the ground. He shot the security guard. The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place. "I saw him point to the back at the cash register and he just kept firing".

Dean estimated that 10 to 15 people, including one with a gunshot wound, had gone to area hospitals. When they realized what was occurring, some patrons used barstools to break a window and escape, according to the Associated Press.

'All I did was grab as many people as I could and pull them underneath the table until I heard a break in the shots, and then we got people out of there, as much as we could, ' he added.

The shooter's identity, as well as the identities and ages of the victims, has yet to be confirmed.
