A 28-year-old Marine Corps veteran opened fire in a country music bar packed with college students in California overnight, killing 12 people including a police officer who exchanged shots with the gunman, authorities.

Thirteen people have died, including a gunman and a sheriff's sergeant, after a mass shooting at a California bar popular with college students, police said.

Authorities said he had no criminal record, but in April officers were called to his home, where deputies found him angry and acting irrationally. Police and firefighters lined the highways and saluted as a hearse carried his body from a hospital to the country coroner's office.

Dean said Long was known to officers through a minor traffic collision and was a victim of a battery incident at a different bar.

"As we say at Calvary often, she lived and loved like Jesus", Penrose said. A mental health crisis team was called at the time and concluded that Long did not need to be taken into custody.

Dean said Long was a Marine veteran, and said there was a chance he suffered from PTSD.

Long was in the Marines from 2008 to 2013, rose to the rank of corporal and served in Afghanistan in 2010-11 before he was honorably discharged, the military said.

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Mr Dean, who was set to retire today.

One handgun, a legally purchased.45-caliber Glock, was at the scene.

Here is what we know about those who were killed. The weapon had an extended magazine, but law enforcement has not determined how many rounds it could hold with the modification, or whether the shooter reloaded the weapon during the shooting.

"We were all bodies on top of each other and as soon as we saw him (the shooter) walk. into the other part of the bar, everyone bolted as fast as they could to get out", Tait said.

"But unfortunately, you go into the unknown, you know there's shots being fired, obviously the suspect was in there and ready for him", he said.

Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer, who hasn't been publicly named, were on scene within minutes, and were the first responders to fearless their way into the bar, darkened by a smoke bomb set off by Long.

For hours after the attack and into the early morning hours of Thursday, Housley's family was desperately seeking information about her.

"He went in there to try to save people", Sheriff Dean said in a news conference.

Dean said he believed about 150 to 200 people were inside the bar at the time of the shooting. "Nor will I ever", she said.

Then three months later, 10 people were shot and killed at Santa Fe High School in southeastern Texas by alleged gunman Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at the school. "Oh, son, I love you so much". Investigators will examine that evidence along with any surveillance or witness video and Long's digital footprint in order to "paint a picture" of his state of mind, the Federal Bureau of Investigation official said. I just followed him, I dropped down and I hid with him. "And the gunman started opening fire on the cashiers, the people working the cash register on the front desk".

President Donald Trump praised police for their "great bravery" in the attack and ordered flags flown at half-staff in honor of the victims. "I love you", Helus, 54, told his wife, according to Dean.

"He's one of the reasons that I'm here right now", she said.

"I told my wife, 'Just be polite to him". "Tonight Thousand Oaks takes its place with those cities, who in order to move forward will rely on hope. we are Thousand Oaks strong".
