The veteran suspected of opening fire in Oaks, California, killed and killed 12, died of a self-shot shot, told an official from the Ventura County Sheriff Office about ABC News.
Ian David Long, 28, an ex-navy, killed 11 people at Borderline Bar and Grill, as well as a police who responded just before midnight on Wednesday.
Preliminary data show that Long entered the bar and immediately pulled a group of security guards and employees stood near the entrance to the bar and then paused to text or mail to social media, according to law enforcement sources informed of the investigation.
“It’s a pity, I will not see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth why I did it,” he wrote at 1
1:24, according to documents received by ABC News. “In fact, I had no reason to do that, and I just thought … life is boring so why not?”
Three minutes later, he wrote: “Yes … I’m crazy, but all you people do after these scoops are” hope and prayer “… or” keep in mind “… every time. .. and wonder why these continue. “
Long social media was taken down on request for law enforcement.
Long, a former US Navy, showed signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, said the authorities, but little information is available, which led to the attack last Wednesday night at Borderline Bar and Grill. Long found dead inside the bar.
“He was a bit irate. He felt a little irrational,” said Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean at a press conference. “They felt he could suffer from PTSD, he was a veteran.”
Long 28, lived near the bar with his mother, neighbors told the police and described the suspect as an anxious man who fought suits fury.
“I think I remember a few times when he was struggling with some issues internally,” said Todd Stratton, a friend of Long. “I did not know [about] PTSD, but his girlfriend would like to ask him about things that happen to him, because he would be really upset sometimes and kindly turned off and he would not want to talk about it to people. He was just very close say, and I think he had difficulty reaching out for help because of his personality. “
FBI officials have cooled the house, desperate to find the motive behind his alleged shooting rampage.
A neighbor told ABC News, she called the police at Long once after claiming to have ended in a fight with his mother. Another neighbor seldom stayed at home for a long time and that his mother told her he became violent.
Dean said that Long had several previous efforts with the police, including an event in April where alternates were called to his home in Newbury Park because he was obvious behavior.
“They went to the house, they talked to him. He was a little bit irate, acted a bit irrationally,” said Dean. “They called up our emergency intervention team, our psychiatric specialist, who met him, talked with him and cleansed him.”
“It’s hard, because I’ve been doing it for 41 years, and you do not leave things unfinished.” Dean, who had thought of retirement, told ABC News “David Muir.”
Dean was a close friend of one of the victims Sgt. Ron Helus, who died in customs.
“I think we try to look at the kernel and try to understand what happened and see if there is a way that we can stop it. We try all the sensible men.”
The authorities said hundreds were inside when suspected went into the western bar with a gun and opened fire. The weapon was equipped with an extended ammunition magazine so that it could hold more than the usual 10 bullets, so it’s unclear how many rounds he may have had, said the police.
Zach Frye and Tyler Odenkirk told ABC News that two of their friends who worked as security guards at Borderline were among the dead. A borderline bouncer said they were certainly among the heroes.
“I know they did everything they could at their last moment,” said the bouncer mentioned above. “We were told that one of them went out a hero. He went out to fight the shooter.”
