Mass Shooting 'Again': 12 Killed In California Bar

In yet another socking incident, a 28 year old marine Corps Ian David Long opened fire that killed 12 people and injured more than 22.

The shooting erupted at the Borderline Bar & Grill in California Thousand Oaks. A county sheriff's Srgt deputy Ron Helus also lost his life in the shooting.

The shooter reportedly opened fire in fully packed bar during the college night. The suspect was already killed before the officers made entry into the shooting scene. He apparently took his own life after the police identified him and confronted. He used a .45 caliber handgun that was purchased legally, but had an extended magazine.

According to the Sheriff, the shooter has been suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, after serving in marine corps. The shooter first opened the fire at security guard and turned right to shoot other security and employees before entering the bar. Many others tried to hide under the tables and escape out by breaking the windows. There were at least six off duty copes inside when the gunman started shooting.

According to Sheriff Geoff Dean, the area was horrific with blood everywhere.
