Ian David Long, the gunman who killed 12 people at a country music bar, posted on social media during the massacre, according to law enforcement officials.

The father of a 22-year-old man who was killed in the Thousand Oaks shooting on Wednesday night broke down in tears as he told the media his son was dead.

At a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Helus called his wife and said he had a call to handle, and told her he loved her before running into the incident at the bar.

A second law enforcement official said that when Long was inside the bar, he apparently stopped shooting and posted to Instagram, based on the time stamps of the posts. As you know, these are ongoing investigations and that information will come out as soon as we are able to determine exactly who the suspect was and what motive he might have had for this horrific event.

Long shot and killed 12 people, including a police sergeant, at the bar. He regularly worked as a security guard at the bar but was just enjoying a night out on Wednesday, his friend Marybeth Schroeder told HuffPost.

"I have two words: gun control", Orfanos added in an interview with BuzzFeed on Thursday.

"He's doing fine, he is going to be traumatised for a little while as I will I think, because we made it out and there's quite a few people that didn't and they were all young and they had a long life to live", he said.

Colell said the gunman had assaulted her when he was a student and athlete.

Investigators have not commented on whether mental illness played a role in the rampage.

"Only him and I know how much I love, how much I miss him", Coffman said. "He was the only athlete that I was scared of".

She claims she had run-ins with then-sprinter Long that convinced her that he was "mentally disturbed" and had "anger issues" before he left to join the U.S. Marine Corps. "The fire is literally so close to exploding into an area that is massively populated".
