The bar is a country-themed bar known for its large dance floor and live music events, according to its website.

"California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times", the president said. He then walked inside, turned right and shot other guards and employees.

Once outside Mr Knapp and a friend helped carry a gunshot victim to an ambulance. "The security guard...was down".

He joined the Marines in 2008 and rose to the rank of corporal before leaving active service in 2013, Marine spokesman Joseph Butterfield wrote in an email.

Here's what we know about the victims of the attack.

Many people had minor injuries, including some that came from the attempt to flee, Dean said.

"They knew they had to take action, and they went in and did what they had to do", Dean said. Deputies called the crisis intervention team, and mental health specialist who met with Long. His.45 caliber handgun was legally owned, but the magazine had reportedly been modified to hold more rounds.

His handgun was created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber - but the extended magazine, which is illegal in California, held more bullets, Dean said.

Trump blasts reporter as ‘rude’; CNN calls attacks on press ‘un-American’
Since Donald Trump stated Mr Acosta would receive a temporary ban, the reporter has been prevented from entering the White House. Trump stepped away from the lectern for a a few seconds before returning to the microphone to take aim at Acosta again.

"When he pointed the gun at me, I was out of there", he said.

A woman in the background added: "He was kind of a loner". He described an incident - which seems to match the April episode mentioned by the sheriff - in which he called law enforcement to Long's house because it "sounded like he was tearing down the walls of the house, like somebody's just beating on the walls with a big hammer or something".

As the entered, Sergeant Helus was struck multiple times with gunfire.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", Sheriff's Sergeant Eric Buschow said.

"He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation."

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, who choked back tears several times as he talked about the sergeant who was also his longtime friend. The gunman was later found dead at the scene. "Just an awesome investigator".

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started. His last words to her were "Hey I gotta go handle a call".

"I've been a cop for 41 years and I never thought I've seen the things around the country would happen but I've learned it doesn't matter what community you're in, it doesn't matter how safe your community is, it can happen anywhere", said Sheriff Dean.
