Pandemonium in Thousand Oaks, California as gunman kills Police officer and twelve others.


A 28-Year-old Lan David Long who is believed to have mental health issues has been tagged the suspect of an attack which occurred in the Borderline Bar and Grill at about 23:20 local time on Wednesday.

Police say at least, 200 people were reportedly inside the bar which was hosting a university student night, at the time of the attack. It is not yet clear who the other 11 victims inside the bar are but it was saddening that the husband and father-of-one Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean who had been a policeman for 29 years and was a professional firearms instructor was killed in the attack.

Ventura Sheriff’s Sergeant Ron Helus, who later died in hospital, had tried to enter the active scene with a local highway patrolman when he was shot several times.


Lan David Long, was said to have appeared dressed in black and forcefully fought his way into the bar after shooting the bouncer as Teylor Whittler an eye witness said, “I was on the dance floor and I heard the gunshots, so I looked back and then all of a sudden everyone screamed: Get Down!

“It was a huge panic, everyone got up, I was trampled, I was kind of left on the floor until some guy came behind me and grabbed me and dragged me out.”

Police added that he used a .45 calibre Glock semi-automatic handgun, which had an extended magazine that allowed it to carry more than its typical 11-bullet capacity.

Officials believe the US Marine Corps veteran and local resident took his own life inside the bar as People escaped the bar by using chairs to break windows, while others reportedly sheltered inside the venue’s toilets.
