Gunman Kills 12 People in California Bar Shooting

The gunman who killed 12 people at a country music bar in Southern California went on social media during the attack and posted about his mental state and whether people would believe he was sane, a law enforcement official said Friday. By the time it was over, 12 people were dead, and gunman Ian David Long was dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He regularly worked as a security guard at the bar but was just enjoying a night out on Wednesday, his friend Marybeth Schroeder told HuffPost.

Helus, who is survived by his wife and son, was a 29-year veteran of the department who was set to retire next year.

The U.S. Marine veteran who is accused of shooting and killing 12 people at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, this week is believed to have made a social media post around the time of the attack on November 7.

- A former roomate of Long described him as "weird" according to the New York Post.

Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a news conference Thursday morning that 28-year-old Ian David Long approached the building with a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun.

"He was a hero before and he remains a hero now", said Ventura County Sheriff Union President Scott Peterson, who went to the academy with Helus some 30 years ago.

Our sources say investigators discovered the messages on Long's page several hours after the shooting and contacted Instagram to delete his page.
