Authorities have not determined a motive for Wednesday night's rampage at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

But neighbors reported hearing frequent loud fights between Ian David Long and his mother, one of them so extreme they called police in April, and authorities at the time anxious that the 28-year-old Afghanistan war veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder.

Another photo from 2014 shows Ian Long with his arm draped around his mother in front of Dodger Stadium.

The gunman was said to have suffered from PTSD after serving in Afghanistan.

According to survivors, Long was dressed in all-black, wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a mask covering the bottom part of his face. "If he talks, just acknowledge him, don't go into conversation with him, '" Don MacLeod said Thursday.

The dead included sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran nearing retirement who responded to reports of shots fired and was gunned down as he entered the bar.

"That Sheriff's Sergeant died in the hospital".

NBA All-Star Game draft to be televised, report says
Team LeBron ended up taking down Team Steph 148-145 last season, and there weren't a whole lot of complaints to be had. Now that we're into the 2018 season, the National Basketball Association is gearing up for the 2019 All-Star Game.

"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.

As the video was released, it emerged one of the victims of the massacre had survived last year's mass shooting in Las Vegas, where 59 people were killed at a country music festival.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he had "been fully briefed on the awful shooting", the latest chapter in America's epidemic of gun violence that came just 10 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

"While I was inside I would say ...about a good 30 seconds ...he had two (magazines) that I know with him". He declined to engage on questions on whether the nation needs stricter gun control laws.

She could often hear him yelling and cursing, but several months ago, unusually loud banging and shouting prompted her husband to call authorities.

"(The deputy said), "Hey, I have to handle a call.

Thousand Oaks, ranked the third safest city in the United States in 2018 by website Niche, was added to the list of victims of gun violence in a country divided over its gun policies.

In a cruel twist of fate, dozens of people who survived the Las Vegas shooting were inside the Borderline bar when Long opened fire.

"I just started hearing these big pops - pop, pop, pop. He took decisive action, and it's just a tragic loss for us", he said. "Tonight Thousand Oaks takes its place with those cities, who in order to move forward will rely on hope".

At the vigil, hundreds joined in song inside the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza while an overflow crowd gathered outside to remember those who were lost.
