Newsom said he supports people's right to bear arms, but he is concerned about gun violence and thinks California should lead the way on gun controls. More than 100 people were inside the venue at the time of the attack. Others jumped over chairs and broke windows to get out of the bar.

Video accessed by the AP showed law enforcement officers and vehicles speeding to the scene and people running from the bar.

Officers scramble to the California bar, which was said to be popular with local students. It's unclear whether the magazine was legally purchased.

This violence came just days after 11 people were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue, months after 17 students and staff were massacred in a high school at Parkland, Florida, and a year after 84 people were killed in rampages in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Three of the deadliest mass shootings in United States modern history have occurred since October 2017.

Police tell the Los Angeles Times that at least 30 shots were fired at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles.

Ventura County Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus, who was on the scene within three minutes after the shooting was reported, was killed in the incident. He was a year away from retirement after 29 years on the job.

"If you were a victim of a crime, you want him investigating the case", Buschow said.

It was college night and country two-step lessons were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website. Once safely outside, the uninjured hugged and awaited word about those still inside.

"The mental health experts out there cleared him that day", Dean told reporters Thursday, though they were concerned he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of his military service.

Cody Coffman, 22, was confirmed to have died during the attack by his father, Jason. He said Cody will be remembered for his love for his younger siblings, including two brothers and a soon-to-be born sister, and that he loved working with kids.

In a news briefing Thursday, authorities identified the suspect as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former Marine.

Cole Knapp, a freshman at Moorpark College, said he was inside the bar when the shooting began, but he thought at first that it was "just someone with an M-80, just kind of playing a prank". He was deployed to Afghanistan from November 16, 2010 to June 14, 2011, the Marine Corps said. Long was found dead at the scene, having apparently shot himself.

Police have not identified a motive.

"Bar stools go through windows", he told ABC.

Authorities said he had no criminal record, but Dean said officers were called to his home in April, when deputies found him angry and acting irrationally.

He added that Thousand Oaks "is considered one of the safest cities in the country".

Trump said Thursday on Twitter that he has been "fully briefed on the bad shooting".
