“Tattooed trenchcoat-wearing gunman, 29, identified after massacring twelve people during student night at country bar: Suspect kills himself after hurling smoke grenades onto dance floor and killing cop in California,” by Connor Boyd For Dailymail.com and Jennifer Smith, Dailymail.com, November 8, 2018:
Twelve people have been killed at a country music bar in southern California after a masked gunman wearing all black opened fire on crowds of college kids before taking his own life with a semi-automatic handgun.
The shooter has been named as 29-year-old Ian Long. Witnesses described him as a heavily-tattooed white man who was wearing a black trench coat and a black bandanna at the time.
He stormed Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday at 11.20pm. He first shot the bouncer then opened fire on the crowds of youngsters who were there to enjoy a night of line dancing and country music.
As dozens ran for their lives, hid beneath pool tables and used bar stools to shatter the windows to escape, the shooter continued firing his Glock .45 that was legally bought in Ventura County.
He also threw smoke grenades to confuse the crowds.
When the first police officers arrived at the scene three minutes later, the gunman shot one of them multiple times before shooting himself. By the time SWAT teams arrived, he was dead. The sheriff’s sergeant who was shot later died in hospital. He was Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran.
In total, 13 are dead; 11 people inside the bar, the sheriff’s sergeant and the gunman. The gunman was 29 and drove his mother’s car to the bar to carry out the attack….
