CRIME SCENE TAPE ALONG THE CARS, TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT NOBODY ENTERS. WE WENT UP THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS HOUSE, THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, TO TRY TO KNOCK ON THEIR DOOR. HE WAS CLEARLY TALKING TO INVESTIGATORS INSIDE OF HIS LIVING ROOM.>>JONATHAN, HOW FAR AWAY IS THIS HOME FROM BORDERLINE BAR?>>Reporter: YOU KNOW, IT TOOK US TEN MINUTES TO GET HERE. MILEAGE WISE, HONESTLY, I WAS HELPING GUIDE MY PHOTOGRAPHER, JAMES WOLF HERE, BUT MINUTES WISE, IT IS A TEN MINUTE DRIVE WITH NO TRAFFIC. VERY, VERY CLOSE.>>CLOSE. >>Reporter: CLOSE IN THE CITY OF THOUSAND OAKS. IT’S RIGHT THERE, YEAH. IT IS A COUPLE FREEWAY EXITS. >>THIS IS A PLACE HE MIGHT HAVE GONE TO, THAT HE MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH. OF COURSE, WE DON’T KNOW THAT. IT SEEMS THAT HE LIVED IN THE AREA.>>Reporter: SIR, DID YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IAN LONG THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH US?>>NOT REALLY. HE WAS MOSTLY A PRIVATE PERSON. HARDLY EVER SAW HIM.>>Reporter: I’M SURE YOU HEARD WHAT HAPPENED THIS MORNING.>>JUST A LITTLE BIT AGO.>>Reporter: WHAT CAN YOU TELL US, WHEN YOU HEARD WHAT HAPPENED?>>SHOCK. JUST MESSED UP.>>Reporter: WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT HIS FAMILY, HIM LIVING HERE? HOW LONG HAVE THEY LIVED HERE?>>AT LEAST TEN YEARS. LIVED ALONE WITH HIS MOTHER. HIS MOTHER, SHE AND I WERE GOOD FRIENDS. SAW HER ALL THE TIME. HARDLY EVER SAW HIM OUTSIDE THE HOUSE. >>DID SHE SPEAK ABOUT TROUBLES HE WAS HAVING?>>NOT TO ME.>>A JOB, EMPLOYMENT?>>NOT THAT I KNOW OF. >>Reporter: WAS IT YOUR WIFE WHO LEFT? SHE SAID THE WORDS PTSD, SOMETHING HE MAY HAVE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH. >>I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT. HE WAS IN THE MILITARY FOR A WHILE. NEVER REALLY TALKED TO HIM. I DON’T KNOW HIM. >>Reporter: OKAY. DO YOU KNOW IF HE HAS ANY SIBLINGS OR ANYBODY ELSE — HE JUST LIVES HERE WITH HIS PARENTS? >>LIVES HERE ALONE WITH HIS MOM.>>SO YOU NEVER OBSERVED HIM COMING AND GOING, HIS DEMEANOR?>>VERY SELDOM. HE WOULDN’T COME OUT OF THE HOUSE THAT MUCH. WHEN I DID SEE HIM DRIVE BY, I’D WAVE, AND HE WOULD NOT WAVE BACK. PRIVATE.>>NOT VERY MUCH CONTACT. NOT MUCH EYE CONTACT.>>NOT WITH ME.>>DID HE EVER ENGAGE IN ANY KIND OF HOSTILE ACTIVITY? EVER HAVE INVESTIGATORS COME HERE BEFORE?>>NOT THAT I’VE NOTICED.>>Reporter: HAVE INVESTIGATORS ASKED YOU ANYTHING YET?>>I BARELY GOT BACK HOME FROM WORK.>>OK.>>MY WIFE CALLED ME. SHE HAD TO BABYSIT, SO I CAME HOME. >>Reporter: AS A MEMBER OF THIS COMMUNITY, HOW DO YOU PROCESS WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?>>FREAKY. TOTALLY MESSED UP. NO IDEA.>>Reporter: THE FACT THAT YOU LIVED NEXT TO THIS PERSON?>>YEAH.>>Reporter: ACCUSED OF DOING THIS.>>MESSED UP.>>Reporter: SIR, WHAT’S YOUR NAME?>>GARETH KRITZ. G-A-R-E-T-H. C-R-I-T-E-S.>>Reporter: THANK YOU, GARETH. APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.>>THANK YOU. >>Reporter: YOU HEARD IT THERE LIVE. THE ACCUSED SUSPECTS, ACCUSED SHOOTER’S NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, SAYING HE NEVER REALLY SAW HIM. LIVED HERE, YOU KNOW, REPORTEDLY, WITH HIS MOM. NEVER REALLY CAME OUT OF THE HOUSE. WHEN HE DID SEE HIM, IT WAS RARE. WHEN HE DID, HE DIDN’T SAY ANYTHING. DIDN’T LOOK HIM IN THE EYE. DIDN’T GIVE MUCH, YOU KNOW, CONTACT AT ALL. WE HEARD HIS WIFE SAY A FEW MINUTES AGO THAT HE WAS MAYBE GOING THROUGH TROUBLE. AGAIN, THAT’S ALL UNCONFIRM ED. IT IS PART OF THE INVESTIGATION. TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE ONE QUESTION EVERYONE STILL HAS LEFT THIS MORNING, AND THE QUESTION IS WHY. WHY WOULD HE, YOU KNOW, DO SOMETHING LIKE HE DID LAST NIGHT.>>NOW THAT WE HAVE INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, NBC NEWS CITING LAW ENFORCEMENT SOURCES, JONATHAN, SAYING THE SHOOTER IS IAN LONG FROM VENTURA COUNTY. APPARENTLY, HE USED A GLOCK MODEL 21, A .45 CALIBER WEAPON. IT APPEARS HE HAD BEEN PLANNING THIS FOR SOME TIME, ACCORDING TO PETE WILLIAMS WITH NBC. THE BIG QUESTION RIGHT NOW IS THE MOTIVE. WHY DID HE LASH OUT? APPARENTLY, ALL DRESSED IN BLACK. ACCORDING TO WITNESSES, DANIELLA, HE HAD A BLACK FACE MASK ON. >>LOTS OF AMMO.>>YEAH. >>JONATHAN, THANK YOU FOR THAT. AS WE CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR ANSWERS, AS YOU MENTIONED, AND WHY AND WHY SOMEBODY WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, BUT HE IS CONSIDERED A LOCAL. THAT IS IN THOUSAND OAKS. THAT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE BAR. I’M SURE MANY PEOPLE IN THE AREA, YOU KNOW, WHO MAY KNOW HIM, WILL COME OUT THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND GIVE US A LITTLE BIT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHO HE IS, AS WELL AS LAW ENFORCEMENT.>>YEAH. A LOT OF PEOPLE WONDERING WHY. YOU HEARD FROM SOME OF THE NEIGHBORS. SOME OF THE INFORMATION, OBVIOUSLY, NOT CORROBORATED OR CONFIRMED BY POLICE YET, AS WE BEGIN TO LOOK AT THE HOME IN THOUSAND OAKS. THE HOME OF THE SUSPECTED GUNMAN, IAN LONG, WANTED FOR KILLING 12 PEOPLE THIS MORNING. THIS IS THE HOME WHERE LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL APPARENTLY SOON CHECK OUT. PROBABLY, LIKELY, GOING TO SERVE A SEARCH WARRANT TO FIND OUT IF THERE IS EVIDENCE INSIDE THAT LEADS THEM TO A MOTIVE. SO MANY PEOPLE WONDERING WHY THIS MORNING. >>SEE IF ANYONE ANSWERS THE DOOR THERE. INVESTIGATORS SPEAKING TO WHOEVER IS INSIDE THE HOME. NBC NEWS — EXCUSE ME — HAS CONFIRMED THROUGH PETE WILLIAMS THAT IAN LONG WAS HEAVILY TATTOOED AND HAD A WEAPON ON HIM, AS ADRIAN MENTIONED. ALSO HAVE CONFIRMED THAT HE DROVE HIS MOTHER’S VEHICLE TO THE BAR. THAT’S INFORMATION WE HAVE. ALSO, THIS VIDEO WE’RE SEEING HERE LIVE, THIS IS NOT IAN LONG’S HOME. WE’RE TOLD THIS IS A NEIGHBOR’S HOME. YOU KNOW, LAW ENFORCEMENT, AS THEY’D TYPICALLY DO, ARE GOING DOOR TO DOOR, TRYING TO GET A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOOTER, ABOUT THE SUSPECT, WHO HE IS, WHAT DID YOU SEE, WHAT DID YOU HEAR, DID YOU KNOW ANYTHING. YOU KNOW, THIS IS JUST PART OF THE INVESTIGATION OF GETTING THE ANSWERS AS TO WHY THIS HAPPENED.>>LAW ENFORCEMENT CANVASSING THE NEIGHBORHOOD. NBC 4’S JONATHAN GONZALEZ SPEAKING WITH NEIGHBORS A SHORT TIME AGO. THEY’RE CLAIMING THAT THE GUNMAN WAS A — HAD A TROUBLED PAST. THAT HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN THE MILITARY AND MIGHT HAVE SUFFERED FROM PTSD. THAT’S NOT BEEN CONFIRMED YET FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT. CERTAINLY, IT IS SOMETHING THAT INVESTIGATORS AND DETECTIVES WILL BE LOOKING INTO AND ASKING THESE NEIGHBORS ABOUT, AS WELL AS HIS MOTHER. ACCORDING TO THE NEIGHBORS, THE GUNMAN LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER ALONE IN THAT HOME. VERY SELDOM CAME OUT OF THE HOME AND SELDOM COMMUNICATED WITH THE NEIGHBORS. >>SAID HE WAS QUIET AND PRIVATE, AS WELL. OKAY. WELL, WE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS SINCE THIS HAPPENED AT 11:15 THIS MORNING. WE HAVE BEEN GOING STRAIGHT WITHOUT ANY COMMERCIAL BREAKS, TRYING TO GET YOU ALL OF THE LATEST INFORMATION. WE HAVE HEARD FROM WITNESSES, FROM PEOPLE WHO SAID THEY ACTUALLY SAW THE SHOOTING OF THE GUNMAN POINTING THE GUN, PEOPLE WHO WENT TO HIDE, WENT OUT WINDOWS TO ESCAPE, AS WELL. TRAGICALLY, 11 PEOPLE WERE SHOT AND KILLED INSIDE. THE SERGEANT, VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF’S SERGEANT WHO WENT IN, TRYING TO SAVE LIVES, BEING SHOT AND WAS KILLED. >>RON HELUS, A 29 YEAR VETERAN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, IS BEING REMEMBERED AS A HERO. ONE THING TO POINT OUT, AS WELL, IS THERE ARE ESTIMATES OF SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 22 AND 25 PEOPLE WHO WERE INJURED. YOU HAVE A LOT OF FAMILIES OUT THERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THEIR LOVED ONE SURVIVED. WHERE THIS HAPPENED WAS A BAR WHERE IT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT. YOU HAD STUDENTS S FROM AT LEAS FOUR DIFFERENT UNIVERSITIES THAT ATTENDED BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL IN THOUSAND OAKS. >>THOUSAND OAKS SET UP A REUNIFICATION CENTER, WHERE FAMILY MEMBERS CAN GET INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT. THEY CAN ALSO SPEAK TO A CHAPLAIN, GET SOME GRIEF COUNSELING, SOME FOOD AND WATER AS THEY WAIT FOR INFORMATION. THIS IS STILL A SCENE THERE AT THE ACTUAL BAR AND ALSO AT THIS REUNIFICATION CENTER, WHERE WE’VE BEEN SEEING OUR REPORTERS SPEAK TO SOME OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE STILL HOLDING HOPE. >>RIGHT. IT’LL BE A CRIME SCENE THAT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR SEVERAL MORE HOURS, IF NOT LONGER. IT IS 7:00 RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE WATCHING “TODAY IN LA.” WE ARE PREPARING FOR A NEWS CONFERENCE 7 IN A HOURS AGO OPENED FIRE KILLING 11 PEOPLE INSIDE THE BAR AND THEN A SHERIFF DEPUTY RESPONDING TO THE CALL OF SHOTS FIRED.>>LET’S LISTEN IN RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GOING TO STAY ON TOP OF THIS AND NOT GOING TO “TODAY” SHOW AND LIVE ON NBC 4. LET’S LISTEN TO WHAT THE VENTURA SHERIFF HAS TO SAY ABOUT IT. THIS SHERIFF SAYS HE IS VERY GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE SERGEANT WHO WAS KILLED. VERY GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE CO-WORKER AND THE SERGEANT WHO WAS KILLED. SERGEANT RON HELUS AND HE BROKE DOWN AND GOT VERY EMOTIONAL WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT HIM. HE WILL GIVE THE VERY LATEST ON THIS INVESTIGATION THAT BEGAN WHEN SHOTS RANG OUT AT 11:15 LAST NIGHT BORDERLINE. LET’S LISTEN IN.>>COUPLE PIECES OF INFORMATION I WANT TO RELEASE TO YOU. REGARDING THE VICTIMS, WE ARE STILL WORKING TO IDENTIFY THEM AND WE WILL NOT RELEASE ANY VICTIMS’AH GUTHRIE ALONGSIDE CRAIG MELVIN. AND OFFICIALS ARE HOLDING AN UPDATE AS WE SPEAK AT THAT DEADLY SHOOTING AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL AT THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA. THIS IS THE SHERIFF OF VENTURA COUNTY.>>HE WAS 28 YEARS OLD. WE’VE HAD SEVERAL CONTACTS WITH MR. LONG OVER THE YEARS. MINOR EVENTS SUCH AS A TERRIFIC COLLISION. HE WAS A VICTIM OF A BATTERY AT A LOCAL BAR IN 2015. IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR, DEPUTIES WERE CALLED TO HIS HOUSE FOR A SUBJECT DISTURBING. THEY WENT TO THE HOUSE, THEY TALKED TO HIM. HE WAS SOMEWHAT IRATE, ACTING A LITTLE IRRATIONALLY. THEY CALLED OUT OUR CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM. OUR MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALIST WHO MET WITH HIM, CLEARED HIM AND DIDN’T FEEL HE WAS QUALIFIED TO BE TAKEN UNDER 5150 AND HE WAS LEFT AT THAT SCENE LAST APRIL. DEPUTIES ARE AT THE HOUSE NOW. THEY HAVE SECURED THE RESIDENCE. AND TAKING A SEARCH WARRANT TO DO A THOROUGH SEARCH OF THE HOUSE. THE WEAPON USED IN THIS HORRIFIC SHOOTING WAS A GLOCK 21.45-CALIBER HANDGUN. THE HANDGUN IS DESIGNED TO HOLD TEN ROUNDS AND ONE IN THE CHAMBER. THIS WEAPON HAD HAVE AN EXTENDED MAGAZINE ON IT. WE DO NOT KNOW AT THIS TIME HOW MANY ROUNDS WERE ACTUALLY IN THE WEAPON, OR HOW MANY ROUNDS THE MAGAZINE COULD ACTUALLY HOLD. BECAUSE IT’S STILL BEING PROCESSED AS PART OF THE EVIDENCE. I’LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>WE BELIEVE THAT’S THE ONLY WEAPON USED, THAT HANDGUN.>>YOU CAN — >>WE DON’T — WE DON’T KNOW IF HE — SORRY. WE DON’T KNOW IF HE RELOADED HIS WELL OR NOT. WE’RE STILL INTERVIEWING WITNESSES. THERE’S NOT NECESSARILY INDICATION THAT HAPPENED. IT APPEARS HE WALKED UP TO THE SCENE. HE SHOT THE SECURITY GUARD THAT WAS STANDING OUTSIDE. HE STEPPED INSIDE. IT APPEARS THAT HE TURNED TO THE RIGHT AND SHOT SEVERAL OF THE OTHER SECURITY AND EMPLOYEES THERE. AND THEN BEGAN OPENING FIRE INSIDE THE NIGHTCLUB. WE DON’T HAVE ANY OTHER DETAILS TO CONFIRM AN EXACT CHRONOLOGY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. WE WILL PROVIDE THAT TO YOU, AS WE BRING ALL OF OUR WITNESS STATEMENTS TOGETHER AND WE FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE ABOUT TALKING ABOUT THAT. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE MOTIVE WAS AT THIS POINT. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>THE INCIDENT IN APRIL HAPPENED IN HIS HOME. AND HE DID PURCHASE THE WEAPON LEGALLY.>>WHAT DOES THE 5150 HOLD?>>THE 5150 HOLD WAS NEVER PLACED ON HIM. THE MENTAL CRISIS TEAM THAT DAY.>>CAN YOU ELABORATE ON THE PRIOR INCIDENTS? >>ONE, HE RECEIVED A TRAFFIC CITATION. HE WAS A VETERAN. HE WAS IN THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS. >>DO YOU FEEL THERE WAS PTSD?>>THERE WAS A POINT WITH THE CRISIS.>>CAN YOU ELABORATE HOW THE DEPUTY WAS SHOT?>>WHEN SERGEANT HELUS AND THE HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICER WENT IN, THEY IMMEDIATELY EXCHANGED GUNFIRE WITH THE SUSPECT. AND THAT’S WHEN SERGEANT HELUS WAS SHOT SEVERAL TIMES.>>DO YOU KNOW ABOUT HIS SERVICE RECORD?>>NO, I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT THE SERVICE RECORD. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>WE BELIEVE HE SHOT HIMSELF. WHEN THE OFFICER WENT IN AND MADE RE-ENTRY, THEY FOUND HIM ALREADY DECEASED.>>HOW FAR IN WAS HE?>>HE WAS FOUND INSIDE AN OFFICE JUST AJACENT TO AN OFFICE NEXT TO THE BAR. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>SERGEANT HELUS WAS HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH HIS WIFE ON THE PHONE AS HE HAD SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE SHIFT. HEY, I’VE GOT TO GO, HANDLE A CALL, I LOVE YOU, I’LL TALK TO YOU LATER.>>HOW MUCH TIME EXPIRED FROM THE FIRST ROUND — >>NOT AS FAR AS WE KNOW AT THIS POINT. HE COULD HAVE BUT WE DON’T KNOW. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>THERE’S NO INDICATION THAT HE TARGETED THE EMPLOYEES. WE HAVEN’T FOUND ANY CORRELATION. WE’LL PROBABLY KNOW MORE AFTER HE EXECUTE THE SEARCH WARRANT AT HIS HOUSE THAT MAYBE THERE WAS A MOTIVE AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT, BUT WE HAVE NO IDEA AT ALL. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] BASED ON WHAT HE WAS DOING AND — >>ALL I KNOW ABOUT HIS DIRECTION OF TRAVEL IS HE WENT IN AND HE TURNED RIGHT. AND FIRED AT THE EMPLOYEES THAT WERE STANDING THERE. HE WAS — MY BEST RECOLLECTION FROM SEVEN HOURS AGO, HE WAS WEARING A BLACK SWEATER. AND I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT COLOR PANTS HE WAS WEARING, I APOLOGIZE. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>NO, NOT WHEN WE WENT INSIDE, HE WAS NOT. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>2 1/2 MINUTES.>>DID HE USE SMOKE BOMBS? >>WE HAVEN’T CONFIRMED WHETHER HE USED SMOKE BOMBS. WE HAVE A COUPLE WITNESSES THAT HAVE ALLUDED TO THAT.>>THERE WAS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THERE WAS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS PERSON BEFORE THIS HAPPENED?>>WELL, I MEAN, YOU CAN SAY THERE’S NO REASON TO BELIEVE IT. I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, HE HAD SOMETHING GOING ON IN HIS HEAD THAT WOULD CAUSE HIM TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS. SO, HE OBVIOUSLY HAD SOME SORT OF ISSUES. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>NO. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]>>NO.>>WAS ANYBODY HARMED IN — >>NOT THAT WE KNOW OF.>>ANY PREEXISTING RELATION WITH THIS BAR? WHY THIS PARTICULAR LOCATION?>>THERE’S NO CONNECTION AS OF YET. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>WE DON’T KNOW. WE KNEW — WE KNOW THAT ONCE SERGEANT HELUS AND THE HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICER ENGAGED HIM, THE SHOOTING INSIDE STOPPED. WE DON’T KNOW IF HE THEN WENT BACK IN THE OFFICE AND SHOT HIMSELF OR HOW THAT REALLY TRANSPIRED.>>DO YOU KNOW WHERE HE LIVES? >>HE LIVES IN NEW BURY PORT.>>WHY DO YOU THINK THIS KEEPS HAPPENING IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?>>THAT’S A PRETTY CHALLENGING QUESTION. I THINK WE SEE UNFORTUNATE, HORRIFIC ACTIONS THAT HAPPEN ALL OVER THE WORLD. AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT HAPPENS MORE IN THE UNITED STATES OR DOESN’T. I’D HAVE TO READ THE STATS. >>WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS?>>IF I KNEW THE ANSWER TO THAT I’D DO SOMETHING TO STOP IT.>>YOU CAN TALK ABOUT THE TRAINING THAT SERGEANT HELUS AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS IN ACTIVE SHOOTING SITUATIONS AND ARRIVING ON SCENE?>>AS WE TALKED ABOUT IT IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING, POST-COLUMBINE SHOOTING HOW WE CHANGED ACTIVE SHOOTING. INSTEAD OF WAITING AND SURROUNDING AND BRINGING IN THE S.W.A.T. TEAM, THE OFFICERS ARE TO IMMEDIATELY ENGAGE AND TRY TO STOP THE TARGET AND STOP THE KILLING. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED HERE. THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THEY SAVED LIVES BY GOING IN THERE AND ENGAGING WITH THE SUSPECT. WHO KNOWS. WE DON’T KNOW — I’VE HEARD ANYWHERE FROM 150 TO 200 PEOPLE IN THERE. SO NOT BY ANY MEANS THE LOSS OF 13 LIVES IS GOOD. BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH, MUCH WORSE.>>DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE IN THE BAR?>>I DON’T KNOW. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ]. >>WELL, I DON’T THINK IT WAS RANDOM. YOU KNOW, HE’S A RESIDENT OF THIS AREA. AND I WOULD HAVE TO — COMMON SENSE WOULD SPECULATE THAT THERE’S SOME REASON THAT HE WENT HERE. HE PROBABLY KNEW ABOUT IT. BUT IT’S NOT LIKE HE WAS DRIVING DOWN THE FREEWAY AND DECIDED I’M GOING TO GET OFF HERE.>>WE’VE BEEN LISTENING TO A LIVE PRESS CONFERENCE FROM VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF GEOFF DEAN WHO WAS JUST IDENTIFIED OFFICIALLY, IAN DAVID LONG. HE SAID HE’S A VETERAN AND FORMER MARINE. 28 YEARS OLD. POLICE SAY HE’S THE ONE WHO WALKED INTO THIS BAR IN THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA, LATE LAST NIGHT, STARTED SHOOTING, KILLING 12 PEOPLE AND THEN POLICE BELIEVE TURNED THE GUN ON HIMSELF.>>DURING THAT NEWS CONFERENCE WITH THE SHERIFF, WE’VE LEARNED THAT HE USED A MODIFIED 45 GLOCK. AND ALSO HEARD FROM THE SHERIFF, APPARENTLY, POLICE RESPONDED TO HIS HOME EARLIER IN APRIL. LET’S BRING IN NBC’S MIGUEL ALMAGUER WHO WOULD BE ON THE SCENE ALL NIGHT. JUST AFTER 7:00, MIGUEL, FOLKS IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WAKE UP TO TRAGEDY.>>WE KNOW ABOUT THE SUSPECT AND THE VETERAN, WE ALSO KNOW THE PLAY BY PLAY AS THE 911 FIRST CAME IN. A 29-YEAR VETERAN OF THE VENTURA SHERIFF AND A HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICER ENTERED THE BUILDING. THAT’S WHEN THE DEPUTY WAS SHOT. HE WAS KILLED ON SCENE. THE CHP PATROL OFFICER PULLED HIM OUT. CALLED FOR BACKUP. THAT’S WHEN SEVERAL OTHER OFFICERS INCLUDING THE S.W.A.T. TEAM WENT INSIDE AND FOUND THE GUNMAN. WE KNOW THAT 12 PEOPLE WERE KILLED INCLUDING THAT SHERIFF’S DEPUTY. THE GUNMAN ALSO. MOTIVE IS THE BIG QUESTION. INVESTIGATORS DON’T KNOW WHY HE CHOSE THIS LOCATION AND WHAT WAS HIS MOTIVE.>>MIGUEL, THANK YOU.>>WE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THIS IS HIS LAST DAY ON THE JOB AND HAD TO GIVE THAT INFORMATION THAT ONE OF HIS REALLY GOOD FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS, SERGEANT RON HELUS WHO WAS SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES IN THIS BAR SHOOTING AND KILLED. BUT RELEASING SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOOTER, SAYING THAT IT’S 28-YEAR-OLD IAN DAVID LONG, WHO IS FROM NEWBURY PARK.>>JONATHAN GONZALEZ IS LIVE OUTSIDE OF LONG’S HOME AND WE WANT TO CHECK IN WITH JONATHAN. WE SAW THAT AUTHORITIES HAD PUT UP SOME SIGNS AND TAPE AROUND THE HOME AND LOOKS LIKE THEY WERE TRYING TO APPROACH OR ENTER. ANYTHING CHANGE IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES?>>WE’RE DEFINITELY SEEING MORE OF A POLICE PRESENCE HERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THEY HAVE KIND OF BEEN CANVASSING THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND TALKING TO NEIGHBORS TO SEE IF THEY CAN PROVIDE ANY INSIGHT OR INFORMATION ON LONG, THE SUSPECT HERE. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SCENE BEHIND US HERE. THIS IS LONG’S HOME. WE BELIEVE, ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE NEIGHBORS, THAT HE LIVED HERE WITH HIS MOM AND THAT HE, IF YOU NOTICE AN EMPTY SPOT HERE IN THE DRIVEWAY, THAT HE ACTUALLY DROVE HIS MOM’S CAR TO THE BAR LATE LAST NIGHT PRIOR, OBVIOUSLY TO THE SHOOTING. THERE ARE INVESTIGATORS OUTSIDE THE HOME NOT SURE IF THEY ARE WAITING TO GET APPROVAL FOR A SEARCH WARRANT OR IF THERE ARE ALREADY PEOPLE INSIDE. WE KNOW THE FRONT DOOR IS OPEN RIGHT NOW. BUT WE BELIEVE THEY ARE JUST WAITING SO THEY’RE SPENDING THEIR TIME KIND OF GOING DOOR TO DOOR, YOU KNOW, TALKING TO DIFFERENT NEIGHBORS AND SUCH. WE JUST GOT DONE TALKING WITH A NEIGHBOR WHO LIVES DIRECTLY NEXT DOOR. WE HEARD FROM MULTIPLE PEOPLE THAT THEY BELIEVE LONG WAS IN THE MILITARY AND MAYBE WITHIN THE LAST TEN YEARS OR SO. ONE PERSON TELLING US THAT THEY BELIEVE HE WAS A MARINE AND MULTIPLE PEOPLE SAY HE MAY HAVE SUFFERED FROM PTSD. SEVERAL PEOPLE TALK ABOUT AN INCIDENT IN APRIL IN WHICH POLICE WERE CALLED TO THIS HOME. ONE NEIGHBOR DESCRIBING IT AS THEY COULD HEAR HIM SCREAMING AND THEN MOMENTS AGO WE HEARD FROM THE NEIGHBOR WHO CALLED 911 SAYING IT SOUNDED TO HIM THAT HE WAS TRYING TO BRING THE HOUSE DOWN. TAKE A LISTEN.>>JUST MESSED UP.>>WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT HIS FAMILY AND LIVING HERE? HOW LONG HAVE THEY LIVED HERE?>>AT LEAST TEN YEARS. HE LIVED ALONE WITH HIS MOTHER. HIS MOTHER, SHE AND I WERE PRETTY GOOD FRIENDS. HARDLY EVER SAW HIM OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.>>I’M SORRY, THAT WAS A DIFFERENT NEIGHBOR THAT I WAS THINKING OF, BUT MOMENTS AGO WE DID SPEAK WITH A NEIGHBOR JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE AND THAT WAS ANOTHER NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR AND HE SAID HE DIDN’T SEE HIM MUCH AND WHEN HE DID HE DIDN’T SAY MUCH OR MAKE EYE CONTACT. SOME TIME WITHIN THE LAST SIX MONTHS OR SO HAD TO CALL 911 BECAUSE HE HEARD LONG SCREAMING AND HITTING THE WALLS AND WAS WORRIED THAT HE WAS TRYING TO MAYBE HURT HIMSELF. MENTIONED THAT HE WAS GOING THROUGH SOMEWHAT OF A HARD TIME. WE HEARD THAT FROM THREE OR FOUR NEIGHBORS. THEY DON’T KNOW MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HIM OTHER THAN HE WENT TO NEWBURY HIGH SCHOOL AND LIVED IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FOR AT LEAST THE LAST TEN YEARS. CONSIDERING HIS AGE, LIKELY A LITTLE LONGER THAN THAT. HE LIVED HERE WITH HIS MOM AND KEPT TO HIMSELF. ONE NAK NEIGHBOR SAID HE HAD GIRLFRIENDS AND DIDN’T HAVE MUCH TO SAY OTHER THAN EVERYONE HERE IS GENERALLY SHOCKED AND SURPRISED AND GENUINELY SAD THAT IT HAPPENED AND 11 PEOPLE LIKELY FROM THIS COMMUNITY OR NEARBY TO THIS COMMUNITY. THEY ARE JUST STUNNED TO WAKE UP TO THIS HORRIFIC NEWS.>>CONFIRMING JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO THAT IAN LONG, THE GUNMAN IN THIS CASE, WAS A VETERAN. SERVED IN THE U.S. MARINE CORPS. ALTHOUGH HE WAS NOT ABLE TO CONFIRM WHETHER OR NOT LONG HAD PTSD, AS SOME OF THE NEIGHBORS HAVE MENTIONED BUT ALSO CONFIRMING PRIOR RUN INS WITH POLICE. INCLUDING FOR RELATIVELY MINOR INCIDENTS INCLUDING A TRAFFIC COLLISION, A BATTERY, REL ATIVEY LIKE A FIGHT AT A BAR AND THE INCIDENT THAT THE NEIGHBORS TOLD YOU ABOUT, JONATHAN. THAT WAS EARLIER THIS YEAR IN APRIL IN WHICH LONG WAS SET TO BE ACTING IRATE. EXTREMELY VIOLENT TO THE POINT WHERE CRISIS NEGOTIATORS HAD TO BE CALLED IN TO SPEAK WITH THEM. JONATHAN, CAN YOU DESCRIBE WHAT NEIGHBORS TOLD YOU ABOUT THAT INCIDENT?>>AGAIN, SO, ONE NEIGHBOR DESCRIBED IT, THEY CAME HOME AND SAW WHAT HAPPENED AND THEY WERE TOLD THAT HE WAS SCREAMING. THAT THE NEIGHBOR WHO ACTUALLY CALLED 911. HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET SOME SOUND WITH HIM NEXT TIME YOU SEE IT. HE WAS NOT ONLY SCREAMING, IT SOUNDED LIKE HE WAS BANGING ON THE WALLS AND MAKING A LOT OF NOISE AND SO CONCERNED HE WAS BEING VIOLENT THAT HE MAY HAVE TRIED TO HURT HIMSELF. THAT’S WHY HE CALLED 911 BACK IN APRIL DURING THAT INCIDENT. BUT SAYS OTHERWISE HE NEVER HAD ANY REASON TO CALL 911. THIS NEIGHBOR TOLD US HE HAD BEEN TO THE HOUSE AND BIG BASEBALL FANS AND WENT TO A LOT OF DODGER FANS AND LONG HAD GIRLFRIENDS OVER THE YEARS AND HE CONTINUES TO TALK TO HIS MOM AND FEELS FOR HER AT THIS POINT, CONSIDERING WHAT SHE IS GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW. AND, SO, YOU REALLY DIDN’T HAVE MUCH MORE TO ADD OTHER THAN THAT AND JUST, AGAIN, LIKE MOST OF HIS NEIGHBORS HERE, JUST STUNNED THAT THIS HAPPENED. YOU KNOW, AS CLICHE AS THAT SOUNDS, NO ONE CAN PREDICT THIS CAN HAPPEN YET ALONE THE SUSPECT BE YOUR NEIGHBOR. AGAIN, RIGHT NOW THE SITUATION BEHIND US IS THAT VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFFS JUST WAITING TO GO INSIDE LONG’S FAMILY HOME WHERE HE WAITED AND SERVED A SEARCH WARRANT HERE. WE HAVE SEEN THEM GO HOUSE TO HOUSE TRYING TO GET MORE INFORMATION AND TRYING TO PIECE THE PUZZLE TOGETHER AS TO WHAT LED UP TO LAST NIGHT’S SHOOTING. GUYS?>>JONATHAN, THANK YOU. NOT EASY TO IDENTIFY IAN DAVID LONG. HE DIDN’T HAVE ANY IDENTIFICATION ON HIM. AT FIRST THEY DID THAT THROUGH FINGERPRINTS AND IDENTIFY HIM THROUGH DIFFERENT TATTOOS HE HAD. HE BOUGHT HIS WEAPON LEGALLY. SO, THAT’S SOME OF THE LATEST INFORMATION. WHILE WE’RE WAITING TO HEAR FROM OUR REPORTER ANNETTE WHO IS LIVE FOR US AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER IN THOUSAND OAKS WHERE MANY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE WAITING TO HEAR INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT ABOUT THEIR LOVED ONES WHO MAY STILL BE MISSING OR MAY HAVE BEEN SHOT OR KILLED AND STILL ARE INSIDE THAT BAR. WE’RE WAITING FOR THAT PRESS CONFERENCE TO STAR AS SAS WE SEE THAT START TO HAPPEN, IN THE MEANTIME, BACK TO THE HOME WHERE THE SUSPECT OR SHOOTER LIVED. 28 YEARS OLD.>>WE HAVE A BETTER CHRONOLOGY. IAN DAVID LONG GOING UP TO THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL AND APPARENTLY SHOT THE SECURITY OFFICER OUTSIDE THE BAR AND THEN ENTERED THE BAR AND SHOT OTHER SECURITY OFFICERS INSIDE THE BAR, SOME EMPLOYEES AND THEN OPENED FIRE ON THE CROWD AND EVENTUALLY, THEY DO BELIEVE, ONCE THERE WAS THAT VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO RESPONDED TO THE SHOTS FIRED THAT LONG RETREATED TO A BACK OFFICE AREA AND IT APPEARS THAT HE THEN KILLED HIMSELF.>>THAT IS WHEN EVERYBODY INSIDE THAT BAR JUST PANICKED AND CHAOS AS EVERYBODY BROKE WINDOWS WITH FURNITURE AND TRIED TO ESCAPE. OTHER PEOPLE WERE HIDING INSIDE BATHROOMS AND INSIDE OF OFFICES AND RAN OUT AND LEFT SOME OF THEIR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES BEHIND AND STILL WONDERING HOW THEY ARE AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM. WE ARE GOING TO, I THINK WE’RE READY TO GO BACK OUT LIVE TO ANNETTE AT THE FAMILY REUNIFICATION CENTER. SEE IF SHE HAS AN UPDATE ON SOME OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE WAITING TO HEAR FROM THEIR LOVED ONES. ANNETTE?>>DANIELLA, GOOD MORNING. IT WAS WITHIN THE LAST HALF HOUR, 45 MINUTES OR SO THAT WE MADE SOME CONTACT WITH JASON KAUFFMAN, THE FATHER OF CODY KAUFFMAN. HE TOLD US HE WAS GOING TO GO BACK INSIDE THE REUNIFICATION CENTER AND COME OUT AND SPEAK WITH US. THAT IS YET TO HAPPEN. HE’S PROBABLY IN THERE MAKING CALLS, SPEAKING WITH SOME OF THE GRIEF COUNSELORS. JUST TRYING TO GET EVEN MORE INFORMATION. AGAIN, HIS SON, CODY KAUFFMAN, 22 YEARS OLD. WE HEARD JASON KAUFFMAN IN PREVIOUS INTERVIEWS THIS MORNING TELLING US THAT CODY IS HIS FIRST BORN. HE WAS GOING TO BE ENTERING THE MILITARY. DESCRIBING HIM AS AN OVERALL GOOD KID. SOMEBODY WHO WOULD ALWAYS CALL HIM REGARDLESS OF WHERE HE WAS AT. IF HE DIDN’T HAVE A PHONE AROUND HIM, THEN HE WOULD ASK ANYONE FOR A PHONE SO HE COULD CALL HIS DAD AND MAKE SURE, LETTING EVERYONE KNOW THAT HE WAS OKAY. UNFOR UNFORTUNATELY, THAT WAS NOT THE CASE THIS MORNING. JASON KAUFFMAN TELLING US THAT HE HEARD KNOCKS ON THE DOOR AND WHEN HE ANSWERED THE DOOR, IT WAS, YOU KNOW, FRIENDS OF HIS SON, CODY KAUFFMAN, TELLING HIM WHAT HAD HAPPENED INSIDE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. THE SHOOTING THAT HAPPENED THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO ESCAPE, BUT THEY DID NOT KNOW CODY’S WHEREABOUTS. SO, AGAIN, WE ARE WAITING TO HEAR FROM MR. KAUFFMAN THIS MORNING. WE SAW HIM BREAKING DOWN WITHIN THE LAST HOUR. SO, AFTER RECEIVING A CALL, HE WAS EXTREME LY DISTRAUGHT. FOLKS OUT HERE WERE JUST HUGGING HIM TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT HE WAS OKAY. NOW, WE DID GET A QUICK UPDATE FROM SERGEANT HUTTON OUT HERE. HE DID TELL US THAT THE MEDICAL EXAMINER HAS IDENTIFIED SOME OF THE VICTIMS FROM THE SHOOTING, NOT ALL 11 OF THEM, BUT SOME AND THEY WILL START MAKING NOTIFICATIONS, PUTTING A LIST TOGETHER AND MAKING THAT LIST AVAILABLE TO THE FOLKS INSIDE HERE. THE UNIFICATION CENTER. ANYWHERE FROM 50 TO 60 FAMILY MEMBERS GATHERED TRYING TO SEE IF ANY OF THE PEOPLE ON THAT LIST, WELL, ARE THEIR LOVED ONES. SO, AGAIN, ALL OF THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS. AGAIN, SOME VICTIMS ALREADY IDENTIFIED. NOT ALL 11 OF THEM. WE DO KNOW THAT AT LEAST 22 MORE VICTIMS ARE BEING TREATED AT LOCAL HOSPITALS. SO, AGAIN, THESE FAMILY MEMBERS STILL HOLDING ON TO HOPE RIGHT NOW THAT THEIR LOVED ONE IS NOT ON THAT LIST ON THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S LIST OF PEOPLE IDENTIFIED IN THE SHOOTING. SO, AGAIN, RIGHT NOW, JUST WAITING FOR JASON KAUFFMAN TO HEAR FROM JASON KAUFFMAN WHOSE SON HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE LATE LAST NIGHT FOLLOWING THE SHOOTING AT BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. WE HAVE A MIKE STAND SET UP AND WE ARE HOPING TO GET JUST A FEW WORDS, THERE HAS BEEN A VERY ROUGH NIGHT FOR HIM AND FOR ALL THE PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN HERE AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER. YOU KNOW, AS THE MINUTES AND AS THE HOURS GO BY, AGAIN, THAT GLIMMER OF HOPE STARTS TO FADE AND, YOU KNOW, HAVING TO COME TO TERMS WITH THE REALITY AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT THEIR CHILD MAY BE ONE OF THE 11 WHO PASSED AWAY IN THIS HORRIFIC SHOOTING. SO, WE WILL BE OUT HERE. WE KNOW THAT MORE DETAILS WILL BECOMING AVAILABLE TO US WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE MINUTES AS THEY START NOTIFYING FAMILY MEMBERS AND AS THEY START COMPILING THAT LIST OF VICTIMS AND RELEASING IT. SO, AGAIN, WE WILL BE OUT HERE AS SOON AS WE GET NEW DETAILS. WE WILL BE INFORMING YOU GUYS AND STILL AWAITING MR. JASON KAUFFMAN OUT HERE.>>ALL RIGHT, ANNETTE, THANK YOU.>>>STARTING TO HEAR ABOUT HEROIC ACTS. MR. KAUFFMAN, WHOSE SON CODY IS STILL MISSING RIGHT NOW, AND MR. KAUFFMAN SAID HE HAD HEARD ACCOUNTS THAT SOMEBODY IN THE BAR RUSHED THE GUNMAN AFTER HE OPENED FIRE. WE’RE STARTING TO HEAR ABOUT THE HEROIC ACTS FROM SOMEONE RUSHING THE GUNMAN TO TAKING BAR STOOLS AND SMASHING THE WINDOWS OF THE BAR SO EVERYONE COULD CLIMB OUT AND EVERYBODY EXTENDING THEIR HAND TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE OUT. NOT ONLY HEARING THESE STORIES ABOUT CIVILIANS AND THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER WHO WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY.>>LET’S GO TO JOHN.>>A LOT OF PEOPLE REMEMBERING SERGEANT HELUS AND DOING A PROCESSION WITH HIS BODY TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE. WE DID A MAP FOR YOU. THERE WILL BE ROLLING ROAD CLOSURES AS THEY GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS. IT WILL START HERE AT LOS ROBLES HOSPITAL AND TAKING MILLS ROAD NORTH AND THAT WILL TAKE HIM TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE. NOW, I WANT YOU TO HEAR FROM ONE OF THE OFFICERS WHO WORKED WITH SERGEANT RON WHO SAID HE WAS HIS SUPERVISOR AND HE TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS PROCESSION AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING.>>WE LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WHERE THERE ARE MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE 24 HOURS A DAY AND FIREMEN AND SHERIFF DEPUTIES AND POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARE OUT THERE THAT ARE THERE TO PROTECT YOU. AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS COMMUNITY. THOUSAND OAKS IS A GREAT CITY. COUNTY OF VENTURA IS GREAT COUNTY AND RON EXEMPLIFIES THAT TODAY. IT DOESN’T SURPRISE ME ONE BIT TO HEAR THAT HE WAS THE FIRST TO GO IN. HE WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE TO GET OUT THERE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.>>AND WHEN YOU FIND THE WORD HERO, CERTAINLY SERGEANT HELUS’ NAME SHOULD BE NEXT TO THAT. THIS IS WHAT THE ROUTE SHOULD BE LEAVING THE HOSPITAL AND MAKING ITS WAY UP THE 101 FREEWAY UP TO MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE. CHOPPER OVERHEAD AND ROAD CLOSURES LEADING UP TO THAT. GUYS, WE’LL SEND IT BACK TO YOU.>>ALL RIGHT, JOHN, THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE’RE LOOKING AT THE ROUTE THERE, WE’RE GOING TO BE COVERING THAT PROCESSION LIVE ON NBC 4 AND ALSO HAVE COVERAGE ON OUR NBC L.A. APP AND DOTCOM. YOU HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK TO SOME PEOPLE AT THE HOSPITAL — DOES IT LOOK LIKE WE LOST JOHN?>>WE WANTED TO SHOW YOU, WE’LL COVER LIVE HERE. IF YOU WANT TO GO AND PAY YOUR RESPECTS TO SERGEANT HELUS, YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY DO THAT. OR YOU CAN WATCH IT. WE’RE GOING TO BE STREAMING IT AND YOU CAN WATCH IT HERE, AS WELL, NBC 4.>>I HAVE A FEELING THIS ROUTE, THIS PROCESSION ROUTE IS GOING TO BE PACKED TODAY WITH PEOPLE PAYING THEIR RESPECTS. OFTENTIMES THESE OVERPASSES AND IN THIS CASE THE 101. FEN, THAT’S HAPPENING AT 10:00 THIS MORNING. HEARING FROM A PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER THIS MORNING, HE SAYS IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN A PROCESSION LIKE THIS, YOU NEED TO GO OUT AND NOT ONLY PAY YOUR RESPECTS, BUT IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.>>ABSOLUTELY. AFTER EVERYTHING WE HAVE GONE THROUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW SOMEONE AT THAT BAR OR ANYWHERE FROM THAT AREA TO FEEL THE TRAGEDY WITH MASS SHOOTINGS AT SCHOOLS AND SYNAGOGUES AND MOVIE THEATERS AND DIFFERENT MUSIC FESTIVALS. SO CLOSE TO HOME THIS TIME.>>RIGHT. SO MANY PEOPLE WONDERING ABOUT WHY. WHAT WAS THE MOTIVE IN THIS CASE. WE LEARNED MORE ABOUT THE GUNMAN, BUT THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION WHY, IT STILL HASN’T BEEN ANSWERED. A LOT OF PEOPLE WONDERING WHAT IS GOING ON. WE KNOW THAT DETECTIVE INVESTIGATORS ARE GETTING READY TO ENTER THE GUNMAN’S HOME IN THOUSAND OAKS AND QUESTIONS FOR HIS FAMILY AND NEIGHBORS AND THEY’LL SCAN SOCIAL MEDIA, AS WELL. JUST LOOKING FOR ANY TYPE OF CLUE GIVEN INSIGHT TO WHY THIS MAN TOOK SO MANY PEOPLE’S LIVES.>>HIS NEIGHBOR SAID HE WAS A VERY PRIVATE PERSON. DIDN’T HEAR FROM HIM A LOT. HE WAS QUIET, LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER. THEY DO REMEMBER SOME INCIDENTS WHERE THERE WERE VIOLENCE AND LOUD NOISE AND DISRUPTION AT HIS HOME WHERE THEY EVEN ARE THE ONES THAT THEY CALLED POLICE AND CALLED LAW ENFORCEMENT TO COME OUT AND CHECK HIM OUT AND FOUND HIM TO BE VERY IRATE. HE SERVED, HE’S A VETERAN AND SERVED IN THE MARINES AND POSSIBLY SOME NEIGHBORS HAD BEEN SAYING THAT HE SUFFERED FROM PTSD WHICH IS SOMETHING VERY SERIOUS.>>THE SHERIFF COULD NOT CONFIRM WHETHER HE WAS SUFFERING FROM PTSD BUT HE DID SERVE WITH THE U.S. MARINE CORPS AND THAT THEY HAD SOME PROBLEMS. IT WAS BACK IN APRIL THAT AUTHORITIES WERE CALLED OUT TO THE HOUSE BECAUSE OF THAT SITUATION IN WHICH HE WAS SAID TO BE IRATE AND SO INTENSE THAT CRISIS COUNSELORS HAD TO BE CALLED OUT AND AFTER SPEAKING WITH HIM FOR QUITE SOME TIME, THEY DETERMINED THEY COULD LEAVE AND THAT IAN LONG, THE GUNMAN, COULD STAY AT THE HOME. HE WAS NOT TAKEN AWAY AT THAT POINT.>>THE VICTIMS. MANY OF THEM WERE COLLEGE STUDENTS FROM SURROUNDING, FROM THE SURROUNDING AREAS. PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY AND MORE PARK COLLEGE AND CAL LUTHERAN AND MANY OF THE UNIVERSITIES THERE. THE STUDENTS THERE WOULD GATHER ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS AT BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL BECAUSE WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT, WESTERN NIGHT. AND IT WAS 18 AND UP. SO, A LOT OF PEOPLE ENJOYED GOING. IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR NIGHTS OF THE WEEK. COLLEGE NIGHT. AND, SO, WE ALSO HAVE LEARNED THAT MANY PEOPLE THAT WORKED THERE WERE POSSIBLY VICTIMS OF THAT SHOOTER AS HE ATTEMPTED TO GO INTO THE BAR, HE WAS SHOOTING PEOPLE THAT WORKED THERE, AS WELL.>>SECURITY OFFICERS. WANT TO GIVE YOU A PICTURE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE NATION IS MOURNING THE TRAGEDY UNFOLDING HERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK AT THE WHITE HOUSE RIGHT NOW WHERE THE FLAG IS NOW AT HALF STAFF AND THE PRESIDENT ORDERING FLAGS TO BE LOWERED TO HALF STAFF TO HONOR THE SHOOTING VICTIMS. 11 PEOPLE KILLED INSIDE THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL AND THAT ONE SHERIFF DEPUTY WITH VENTURA COUNTY WAS KILLED JUST OUTSIDE AND TRANSPORTED TO THE HOSPITAL WHERE HE SUCCUMBED TO HIS INJURIES.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED ABOUT THIS SHOOTING THREE HOURS AGO. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID, GREAT BRAVERY SHOWN BY POLICE, CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL WAS ON THE SCENE WITHIN THREE MINUTES WITH FIRST OFFICER TO ENTER SHOT NUMEROUS TIMES. SHERIFF SERGEANT DIED AT THE HOSPITAL. GOD BLESS ALL OF THE VICTIMS AND FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS. THANK YOU TO LAW ENFORCEMENT.>>ALL RIGHT. SO, LAW ENFORCEMENT LOSING A BROTHER OVERNIGHT. SERGEANT RON HELUS. A 29-YEAR VETERAN OF THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE. JUST HEARING FROM THE SHERIFF. SERGEANT HELUS WAS LOOKING AT RETIRING IN THE NEXT YEAR. HE HAS AN ADULT SON AND A WIFE HE LEAVES BEHIND. >>WE LEARNED, TOO, THAT HE JUST TALKED TO HIS WIFE. HE CALLED HIS WIFE QUITE OFTEN ON THE SHIFT. HE WAS WORKING A LATE NIGHT. THEY FREQUENTLY CHECKED IN WITH EACH OTHER TO SEE HOW EACH OTHER WERE DOING AND THIS MAKES IT SO TRAGIC HE JUST HAD THAT CONTACT. I HAVE A CALL TO RESPOND AND MINUTES LATER THE TRAGEDY UNFOLDED.>>HOW SENSITIVE A DELICATE LIFE IS AND EVERYTHING WE GO THROUGH AND WE’VE SEEN SO MANY MARCHES AND SO MANY PROTESTS FOR GUN CONTROL AND CALLS FOR GUN CONTROL AND THIS IS GOING TO BE, THIS MASS SHOOTING WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND, AGAIN, VOICE THEIR CONCERNS AND WHAT THEY THINK SHOULD BE DONE AND WHAT SHOULD CHANGE AND WE ALSO HEARD FROM SOME OTHER CONGRESS MEMBERS THAT HAVE SAID, YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE TIME. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE TO MAKE THOSE CHANGES, AS WELL.>>SENATOR CAR MELA HARRIS SPOKE IN THIS MORNING.>>SHE SPOKE, AS WELL.>>SO MANY PEOPLE WANT ANSWERS RIGHT NOW NOT ONLY ABOUT WHY THIS HAPPENED, BUT WE HAVE FAMILIES IN VENTURA COUNTY RIGHT NOW AT THESE REUNIFICATION CENTERS WAITING TO HEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS. THIS WAS COLLEGE NIGHT. YOU HAD PEOPLE AS YOUNG AS 18 OUT CELEBRATING WITH FRIENDS. A WEDNESDAY NIGHT. JUST PLAYING POOL AND LINE DANCING AND THEN THEY GO THROUGH THIS HORRIFIC TRAGEDY. FOR SOME OF THESE FAMILIES WE HAVE BEEN HEARING SOME FATHERS AND MOTHERS AND PARENTS FOR HOURS NOW. THEY HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY ANSWERS YET AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THEIR CHILDREN ARE OKAY.>>WE HAVE BEEN ON THIS STORY SINCE IT HAND 11:15. “TODAY IN L.A.” CONTINUES PAST 7:00 TODAY BECAUSE WE ARE COVERING THIS STORY. A TRAGEDY HAPPENING IN OUR OWN BACKYARD AND THIS IS WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR. VENTURA SHERIFF COUNTY DEPARTMENT SO FAR 13 PEOPLE ARE DEAD. 22 PEOPLE ARE INJURED. THAT IS 11 PEOPLE WHO WERE SHOT INSIDE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. VENTURA COUNTY SERGEANT WAS KILLED AS HE RUSHED IN TO HELP AND THEN THAT SHOOTER WHO WE IDENTIFIED AS 28-YEAR-OLD IAN DAVID LONG FROM NEWBURY PARK SHOT HIMSELF, POLICE ARE TELLTELLING US, INSIDE AN OFFICE INSIDE THAT BAR. VENTURA SHERIFF SAID THE SERGEANT WHO WENT IN TO SAVE SO MANY LIVES.>>IAN DAVID LONG AND THE VENVE VENTURA SAID HE OZ ARMED WITH A GLOCK HANDGUN WITH AN EXTENDED MAGAZINE. HOLDING A COUNTRY COLLEGE NIGHT EVENT LAST NIGHT. 18 AND UP. ALL NIGHT LONG. WE HAVE TALKED TO SEVERAL STUDENTS, SURVIVORS OF THIS AND THEY CAME FROM MORE PARK COLLEGE, AS WELL AS CHANNEL ISLANDS AND CAL LUTHERAN AND PEPPERDINE. AN ESTIMATE OF 150 TO 200 PEOPLE WERE INSIDE THAT VENUE AT THE TIME OF THE SHOOTING. AS WE TALKED ABOUT, SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 20 AND 25 PEOPLE REPORTEDLY INJURED. SO, WE HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS WAITING TO SEE IF THEIR LOVED ONES HAVE BEEN HURT OR POTENTIALLY TRAGICALLY, MAYBE THEY ARE IN THAT BAR RIGHT NOW. WE KNOW THAT 11 OF THE VICTIMS WHO ARE DECEASED ARE STILL IN THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL AS WE SPEAK. SO, WE KNOW THAT A FAMILY REUNIFICATION CENTER HAS NOW BEEN SET UP AT THE THOUSAND OAKS TEEN CENTER.>>>ABOUT 40 MINUTES AGO THE SERGEANT FROM VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT, THE SHERIFF, EXCUSE ME, SPOKE OUT. HE GAVE US INFORMATION ABOUT IAN DAVID LONG. THE SUSPECTED SHOOTER. HE SAID THAT HE HAD MINOR RUN INS WITH THE LAW. JUST BACK IN APRIL AND EARLIER. SO, WE WANT TO LISTEN IN TO SEE WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT IT.>>WE HAD SEVERAL CONTACTS WITH MR. LONG OVER THE YEARS. MINOR EVENTS TRAFFIC COLLISION AND HE WAS A VICTIM OF A BATTERY AT A LOCAL BAR IN 2015. AND IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR, DEPUTIES WERE CALLED TO HIS HOUSE FOR A SUBJECT DISTURBING. THEY WENT TO THE HOUSE. THEY TALKED TO HIM. AND HE WAS SOMEWHAT IRATE AND ACTING A LITTLE IRRATIONALLY. THEY CALLED OUT OUR CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM. OUR MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALISTS WHO MET WITH HIM, TALKED TO HIM AND DIDN’T FEEL THAT HE WAS QUALIFIED TO BE TAKEN UNDER 51-50 AND HE WAS LEFT AT THAT SCENE LAST APRIL.>>INVESTIGATORS DO NOT THINK AFTER TALKING WITH LONG THAT HE NEEDED TO BE TAKEN IN OR HOSPITALIZED AT THAT POINT. YOU’RE LOOKING AT VIDEO NOW OF THIS TRAGEDY THAT UNFOLDED REALLY RIGHT AROUND 11:20. THESE ARE THE MOMENTS AFTERWARDS. YOU CAN SEE THESE FIRST RESPONDERS RUSHING SOME OF THE INJURED TO THESE AMBULANCES TO GET THEM TO THE HOSPITAL. AGAIN, ANYWHERE BETWEEN 20 AND 25 PEOPLE WERE HURT. AND A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE WHO ESCAPED, THEY TOOK THEMSELVES OR THEIR FRIENDS TO THE HOSPITAL TO GET TREATED.>>EVERYONE DESPERATE TO GET HELP AND GET OUT OF THERE AS FAST AS THEY COULD. WE’VE BEEN HEARING ALL MORNING LONG FROM PEOPLE WHO WERE INSIDE, WITNESSES WHO SAW THIS ALL HAPPEN. AND IT’S BEEN VERY TERRIFYING FOR THEM. WE’RE GOING TO LISTEN IN TO SOME OF THE THINGS THAT THEY SAW SPECIFICALLY. LISTEN IN.>>IT WAS EITHER GO THROUGH THE BALCONY OR TOWARDS WHERE THE SHOOTER WAS ACTIVE. HE JUST MOVED THE GLASS OUT OF THE WAY SO PEOPLE COULD GET OUT AND THEN THERE’S A WOODEN RAILING ON THE BACK SIDE. AND JUST JUMP DOWN AND PUSH IT AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE.>>I’M GOING TO CRY. IT’S TOUGH. IT’S TOUGH TO KNOW THAT THERE’S PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE HERE TO RUIN OTHERS. FAMILIES RUIN LIVES AND IT’S NOT COOL. AND PEOPLE LIKE US THAT WORK REALLY HARD TO RAISE THEM UP TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE GOOD KIDS AND FOR SOMEBODY TO COME IN AND TAKE IT ALL AWAY IS NOT FUN.>>VERY QUICK WHAT HAPPENED AND ALL I SAW IS ONCE THE SHOTS RANG OUT AND THEY WERE HIDING UNDER THE STOOLS THAT THERE WAS A LITTLE SMOKE BOMB. MY FRIEND SAW IT BECAUSE I WAS UNDER THE STOOLS WITH HER. AND SHE SAW THE SMOKE BOMB START TO GO OFF AND YOU HEARD EVERYONE SAY, RUN.>>GET BEHIND A CAR OR SOMETHING.>>WE JUST TRIED TO TAKE COVER.>>FROM THERE WE JUST SIT THERE AND WAIT AND JUST KIND OF DUCK.>>HOPING THAT WE COULD GET OUT.>>A LOT OF GUNSHOTS. A LOT OF GUNSHOTS. I MEAN, LOTS. AND I WAS JUST LAYING THERE KIND OF NOT — EVERYONE WAS UNDER THE TABLE SO IT WAS HARD TO GET UNDER THERE. BUT I WAS WITH MY FRIENDS AND I LOOKED BEHIND ME AND THERE WAS A SMOKE BOMB GOING OFF AND I SEE SPARKS AND SMOKE EVERYWHERE. MY FRIENDS JUST GOT UP AND WE JUST RAN.>>LISTENING TO ALL THOSE DETAILS. JUST INCREDIBLE. WE’RE GOING TO GO LIVE RIGHT NOW TO JONATHAN GONZALEZ. HE IS AT THE SHOOTER’S HOME. THIS IS NEWBURY PARK, JONATHAN. TEN MILES FROM WHERE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL IS LOCATED.>>IT WAS ABOUT A TEN-MINUTE DRIVE TO GET HERE FROM WHERE THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE LAST NIGHT. A FEW HOURS AKNOW WE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT MOST OF THOUSAND OAKS AND NEWBURY PARK AS TIGHT KNIT AS THEY ARE THEY WERE GOING TO WAKE UP TO SOMETHING HORRIFIC. MOST PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT. THEY HAD PROBABLY GONE TO BED. CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE WHAT THE PEOPLE WHO NOW LIVE IN THIS SPECIFIC NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THE SHOOTER LIVED ARE GOING THROUGH. THEY ARE WAKING UP STUNNED SEEING ALL THE MEDIA AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING BEHIND US HERE AT THE SHO SHOOTER’S HOME IN NEWBURY PARK. CRIME SCENE, DO NOT CROSS. WE BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE OFFICERS AND DEPUTIES AND INVESTIGATORS WITH THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT WAITING TO GO INSIDE. WE BELIEVE THEY ARE WAITING TO SERVE A SEARCH WARRANT. STILL WAITING TO GET APPROVAL ON THAT. WE UNDERSTAND ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE NEIGHBORS THAT THE SHOOTER LIVED HERE WITH HIS MOTHER. THAT THE SHOOTER HAD, YOU KNOW, SPENT TIME IN THE MILITARY YEARS AGO. HAD GONE TO NEWBURY PARK HIGH SCHOOL. YOU KNOW, HAD LIVED HERE FOR A LITTLE MORE THAN TEN YEARS. BUT THEY SAID THEY DIDN’T REALLY SEE HIM A LOT. WHEN THEY DID SEE HIM, HE DIDN’T SAY MUCH. THEY SAID HE WAS A BIG DODGER FAN. THAT HE AND HIS MOM WOULD GO TO DODGER GAMES. BUT OTHERWISE THEY DIDN’T HAVE MUCH TO SAY. YOU SEE INVESTIGATORS COMING DOWN THE STREET HERE. THEY ARE GOING HOUSE TO HOUSE TRYING TO KNOCK AND SEE IF NEIGHBORS HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD TO THIS INVESTIGATION RIGHT NOW. SOME WILL, SOME WILL NOT. BUT, YOU KNOW, WE DID SPEAK WITH HIS NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR WHO LIVES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HIM AND THE ONE INCIDENT THAT EVERYONE POINTED TO THIS MORNING WHEN WE WERE TALKING TO NEIGHBORS WAS AN INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED BACK IN APRIL WHEN THE POLICE WERE CALLED TO THIS HOME BECAUSE OF A VIOLENT DISTURBANCE INVOLVING THE SHOOTER. TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS HAD TO SAY. HE’S THE ACTUAL, HE’S THE ACTUAL PERSON WHO CALLED 911.>>I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING. SOUNDED LIKE HE WAS BANGING ON THE WALLS OR SOMETHING. I CALLED THE POLICE ON HIM THAT TIME. JUST BECAUSE I DIDN’T, I DIDN’T KNOW IF HE WAS HURTING HIMSELF. AND I CERTAINLY DIDN’T WANT THAT. AND EVERYTHING SEEMED TO GO BACK TO NORMAL AFTER THAT.>>AND I KNOW YOU GUYS DESCRIBED DIFFERENT, YOU KNOW, INCIDENTS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT. DIFFERENT INVOLVEMENTS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE PAST AND THAT IS THE ONE WE CAN TELL YOU ABOUT HERE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. THAT HAPPENED BACK IN APRIL. SEE FBI AGENTS NOW COMING TO THE HOUSE, WALKING UP THROUGH THE DRIVEWAY. THE EMPTY SPOT IN THE DRIVEWAY WAS ONE OF THE CARS BELONGING TO THE SHOOTER’S MOTHER. WE BELIEVE THAT IS THE CAR THAT HE DROVE. THE TEN-MINUTE DRIVE HERE TO NEWBURY PARK TO THOUSAND OAKS WHERE THAT SHOOTING HAPPENED. NOW FBI ON SCENE ALONG WITH VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFFS JUST GETTING READY TO SEARCH THE HOME. THIS HOUSE COORDONED OFF RIGHT NOW. WE BELIEVE THE SHOOTER’S MOTHER HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY, LIKELY TO GO WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AS PART OF THIS INVESTIGATION AND JUST WAITING TO CONDUCT THIS SEARCH ONCE THEY GET APPROVAL WITH THE SEARCH WARRANT. GUYS?>>JONATHAN, WE UNDERSTAND THAT FBI HAS FLOWN IN FROM THE EAST COAST. SOME OF THEIR EXPERTS TO CONDUCT THIS INVESTIGATION SO YOU HAVE THE BEST OF THE BEST WHO ARE GOING TO TRY TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS AND TRY TO FIGUR OUT. . ANNETTE ARREOLA IS AT THE FAMILY CENTER. ANNETTE?>>ADRIAN, YOU HAVE 50 TO 60 FAMILIES HERE AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER AT THOUSAND OAKS. ALL OF THEM JUST ANXIOUS TO HEAR EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THEIR SONS OR DAUGHTERS. JUST ANY INFORMATION THAT IS WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN DESPERATE TO HEAR FROM. THIS MORNING AND BEHIND US YOU SEE THERE ARE SOME LOCAL RELIGIOUS LEADERS OUT HERE. WE’VE SEEN A COUPLE OF RABBIS. WE’VE SEEN PRIESTS. CHAPLAINS WITH THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT AND ALL OF THEM ARRIVING HERE AT THE TEEN CENTER THAT HAS NOW BEEN TURN UNDER TO A REUNIFICATION CENTER FOR FAMILIES THAT ARE JUST LOOKING FOR INFORMATION AND CLINGING TO HOPE THIS MORNING. HOPING AND WISHING THAT THEIR CHILDREN ARE NOT ON THAT LIST THAT THE MEDICAL EXAMINER WILL BE RELEASING LATER THIS MORNING WITH THE IDENTIFICATIONS OF THOSE 11 VICTIMS INVOLVED IN THE SHOOTING. NOW, JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO, WE HAD JASON KAUFFMAN, THE FATHER OF CODY KAUFFMAN, WHO IS 22 YEARS OLD. HE WAS INSIDE THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL LAST NIGHT AND JASON KAUFFMAN TELLING US EARLIER THIS MORNING THAT HE BELIEVES HIS SON WAS WHEN THE CROWD BEGAN FIRING AT THE PATRONS INSIDE. STILL HAS NOT HEARD EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO HIS SON, BUT WE DID SEE HIM RECEIVE A CALL EARLIER THIS MORNING AND JASON KAUFFMAN JUST BREAKING DOWN IN TEARS. SO, WE SUSPECT THAT IT IS NOT GOOD NEWS. HE HAD BEEN HOPING THAT HIS SON WOULD POSSIBLY BE AT SOMEONE’S HOUSE OR STILL IN THE AREA. MAYBE WITHOUT HIS CELL PHONE OR POSSIBLY AT A LOCAL MEDICAL TRAUMA CENTER GETTING SOME, YOU KNOW, AID FOR POSSIBLE WOUNDS, BUT, AGAIN, HE IS NOT HEARD FROM CODY KAUFFMAN. WE KNOW HE RECEIVED A CALL EARLIER THIS MORNING. WE KNOW THAT HE BROKE DOWN IN TEARS RECEIVING A BIG HUG FROM ROB MCCOY WHO WAS OUT HERE JUST NEXT TO HIM AS HE WAS TAKING THAT PHONE CALL. WE DID MAKE CONTACT WITH JASON KAUFFMAN. HE TOLD US THAT HE WOULD BE COMING OUT IN A FEW MINUTES. BUT, AGAIN, STILL WAITING FOR HIM. GIVING HIM HIS SPACE RIGHT NOW. AND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF EMOTIONS THAT HE AND THE REST OF THESE FAMILY MEMBERS ARE TRYING TO COPE WITH RIGHT NOW. THE ANXIETY OF NOT KNOWING ANYTHING, REALLY, AGAIN. MEDICAL EXAMINER HAS IDENTIFIED SOME OF THOSE 11 VICTIMS ARE GOING TO BE PUTTING A LIST TOGETHER AND WE’LL START MAKING NOTIFICATIONS AS THEY MATCH UP THE VICTIMS TO THE FAMILIES THAT MAY HAVE GATHERED HERE AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER. AND IF YOU JUST THINK ABOUT IT, GUYS. I MEAN, THESE VICTIMS, YOUNG VICTIMS, COLLEGE STUDENTS. THEIR ENTIRE LIVES AHEAD OF THEM. AND THESE FAMILIES WONDERING RIGHT NOW WHY THEIR SON, WHY THEIR DAUGHTER. AND WHY IN THIS WAY. SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS FOR THEM. AND, AGAIN, JUST VERY EMOTIONAL TIME FOR THEM AS THE HOURS GO BY. THEY JUST HAVEN’T RECEIVED ANY NEWS AND THEY ARE HOPING, HOPING TO STILL RECEIVE GOOD NEWS. BUT, IT’S STILL UNCLEAR. SO, WE WILL BE OUT HERE. WE’VE SEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING AND GOING. AND WE SAW A YOUNG MAN FIGHTING BACK TEARS. A COUPLE MINUTES AGO. WALKING OUT TO HIS CAR. WE SEE SOME MORE PEOPLE WALKING IN. TAKING IN FOOD. JUST DEALING WITH THE SITUATION AS BEST THEY CAN. KNOWING THAT THEY COULD POSSIBLY BE RECEIVING SOME HORRIFIC NEWS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS. IN THE MEANTIME, WE WILL BE OUT HERE, WE DO KNOW THAT THEY HAVE CRISIS COUNSELORS, SHERIFF DEPUTIES OUT HERE, REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE FBI ALSO PRESENT AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION IN REGARDS TO THE VICTIMS INVOLVED IN THIS SHOOTING.>>ANNETTE, YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING WITH MR. KAUFFMAN FOR HOURS THIS MORNING AND THIS IS ONE FAMILY OF DOZENS IF NOT HUNDREDS AFFECTED. YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER 11 FAMILIES, 11 VICTIMS INSIDE THE BAR AND THEN YOU HAVE SOME 25 VICTIMS WHO WERE TAKEN TO HOSPITALS AND THEN YOU HAVE 150 TO 200 PEOPLE INSIDE THE BAR AT THE TIME.>>YEAH, WE’RE DEFINITELY TRYING TO GIVE THEM AND BE RESPECTFUL AND GIVE THEM AS MUCH SPACE AS THEY CAN. THEY HAVE COME UP TO US SEVERAL TIMES AND SPEAK ABOUT THEIR MISSING SON OR THEIR MISSING DAUGHTER. BUT MR. KAUFFMAN’S BEEN COMING IN AND OUT AND HAS NOT APPROACHED US YET. SO, WE’RE GOING TO PATIENTLY WAIT AND FIND OUT. WE’VE SEEN HIS FAMILY THERE. AND PEOPLE SURROUNDING HIM AND HUGGING HIM. AS WELL AS SEVERAL FAMILY MEMBERS. ABOUT 150 PEOPLE THERE?>>50 OR 60.>>50 OR 60 PEOPLE THERE.>>ANNETTE SPOKE WITH MR. KAUFFMAN BUT ANOTHER PERSON WHO IS MISSING RIGHT NOW. THIS IS JAKE DUNHAM. A YOUNG MAN MISSING FOR SEVERAL HOURS RIGHT NOW. HE WAS AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL WITH A FRIEND. WE WERE TALKING WITH HIS FATHER EARLIER THIS MORNING. PROBABLY RIGHT AROUND 3:00 THIS MORNING AND HIS DAD SAID THAT JAKE AND HIS FRIEND, BLAKE, WENT TO THE BAR TO PLAY SOME POOL AND THEY HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD FROM SINCE. SO, WE DO KNOW THAT THEIR FAMILY AND THEIR FRIENDS ARE LOOKING FOR THEM RIGHT NOW. THEY SHARED THIS PHOTO WITH US. OKAY.>>I THOUGHT WE HAD SOME INFORMATION ABOUT HIS DAD THERE. AGAIN, YOU KNOW, THIS IS LIVE WHAT WE’RE DOING. WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS SINCE 3:00 IN THE MORNING. COLLEEN AND CHUCK WERE HERE AT 11:00. IT IS IS VERY DIFFICULT, AS WELL, BECAUSE THIS IS RIGHT IN OUR BACKYARD AND THESE, MANY OF THESE VICTIMS JUST SO YOUNG. INNOCENT PEOPLE, LIKE YOU MENTIONED. JUST GOING OUT TO HANG OUT ON A COLLEGE NIGHT AND, UNFORTUNATELY, HAD A TRAGIC END FOR THEM AND THAT SERGEANT THAT RAN IN TO HELP THEM.>>WE UNDERSTOOD IT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. WHAT COLLEGES WERE THESE STUDENTS COMING FROM AND AT LEAST THE UNIVERSITY OF PE PEPPERDINE AND CHANNEL ISLANDS AND CAL LUTHERAN AND SO, WE’RE STARTING TO LEARN A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT WHO WAS IN ATTENDANCE AT THAT BAR LAST NIGHT.>>THOSE ARE JUST SURROUNDING COLLEGES IN THAT AREA. WE ALSO HEARD FROM OTHER PEOPLE WHO SAID THEY DROVE FROM VERY FAR AWAY TO GO TO THIS BAR. VERY POPULAR BAR, ESPECIALLY ON COLLEGE NIGHT. WHO KNOWS WHERE SOME OF THOSE OTHER STUDENTS MAY GO TO SCHOOL, AS WELL AS THE STAFF MEMBERS WHO WORK THERE, TOO.>>HARROWING WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH. THEY’RE HAVING A GOOD TIME, SOME OF THEM ARE LINE DANCING AND SOME OF THEM ARE PLAYING POOL, AS WE JUST TALKED ABOUT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY SAID THEY SAW THE GUNMAN WALK IN BLACK POSSIBLY WITH A BLACK FACEMASK ON AND WALKS UP TO PEOPLE POINT BLANK AND JUST SHOOTS THEM.>>SOME OF THEM THOUGHT IT WAS A JOKE. THEY THOUGHT THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON. REMEMBER, THIS IS A MUSIC VENUE WHERE THEY HAVE LOTS OF MUSIC AND IT’S LOUD IN THERE.>>IT’S A LANDMARK, RIGHT?>>BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES.>>IT TOOK SOME OF THE VICTIMS SOME TIME TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS ACTUALLY GOING ON. AND WHEN THEY DID, THEY FINALLY JUST WENT ON SURVIVAL MODE. THEY WENT ON SURVIVAL MODE AND THEY ESCAPED AS THEY COULD FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO WERE ABLE TO DO THAT. BUT, YOU KNOW, THOUSAND OAKS, A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE SAID THAT THIS IS A VERY NEIGHBOR, YOU KNOW, FAMILY FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD. THINGS LIKE THIS DON’T HAPPEN THERE. AND IT IS CONSIDERED VERY SAFE TO LIVE OUT IN THOUSAND OAKS. SO MUCH SO THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT, THEY LIVE OUT THERE THEMSELVES AND THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT NO WHERE IS REALLY SAFE. AND NOT THAT WE SHOULD JUST FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE, BUT THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE AND AT ANY TIME.>>BUT WAS SHOCKING. OBVIOUSLY, HEAR FROM THESE PEOPLE AND THEY NEVER THOUGHT THIS COULD HAPPEN IN THAT THOUSAND OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD WHICH HAS BEEN RANKED BY SEVERAL PUBLICATIONS TO BE ONE OF THE SAFEST CITY THINS COUNTRY. THIS IS A STATEMENT THAT WE RECEIVED FROM PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY. THEY’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT. IT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT LAST NIGHT AND WE HAVE HEARD THAT SEVERAL PEPPERDINE STUDENTS WERE AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL WHEN A GUNMAN REPORTEDLY ENTERED THAT LOCATION AND STARTED SHOOTING. AGAIN, A STATEMENT FROM THE SCHOOL. AT THIS TIME, THE UNIVERSITY IS WORKING TO IDENTIFY AND PROVIDE SUPPORT TO THOSE STUDENTS IMPACTED. PEPPERDINE OFFICIALS WENT ON TO SAY THAT THEY’RE IN CONTACT WITH THE APPROPRIATE GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES AND THEY’RE GOING TO PROVIDE UPDATES ON THE STATUS OF THIS SITUATION AS INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.>>YEAH, THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF STUDENTS FROM CSU CHANNEL ISLANDS THAT WERE THERE AND THEY CONFIRMED THAT. THE UNIVERSITY TWEETED THAT OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH ALL THE VICTIMS. UNIVERSITY ALSO TWEETED THAT THE EMERGENCY HOTLINE THAT WE HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU ABOUT ALL MORNING LONG. THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP LOCATING LOVED ONES. THAT NUMBER BY THE WAY 805-465-6650 FROM CAL STATE LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY. BY THE WAY, WHICH CLOSED TODAY, NOT HAVING CLASSES. CLU GOVERNMENT RELEASED THIS STATEMENT SAYING OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO ALL WHO WERE AFFECTED TONIGHT BY THE SHOOTING AT BORDERLINE. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU IN THIS TRAGIC TIME. WHATEVER THE NEED. STAY SAFE.>>IT IS JUST ABOUT 8:00 RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU’RE WATCHING A SPECIAL EDITION OF “TODAY IN L.A..” BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE OF THIS MASS SHOOTING IN THOUSAND OAKS THAT WE HAVE BEEN COVERING ALL NIGHT LONG, ALL MORNING LONG. THIS UNFOLDED RIGHT AROUND 11:15. 11:20 LAST NIGHT. SHERIFF DEPARTMENT TELLING US THAT SHOTS WERE FIRED AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. 13 PEOPLE ARE NOW DEAD AFTER THAT SHOOTING. AMONG THE DEAD, 11 PEOPLE INSIDE THAT BAR AND GRILL. AND THEN YOU HAD VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTY, A SERGEANT RESPONDING TO THAT SCENE. WE BELIEVE HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE FIRST ONE TO RESPOND TO THAT SCENE. AS SOON AS HE WALKED INTO THE BAR, HE WAS SHOT. CHP OFFICER WAS ALONGSIDE HIM AND PULLED HIM OUT. HE WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL WHERE HE LATER DIED. BUT THE SHERIFF TELLING US THIS MORNING THAT SERGEANT RON HELUS HIS THERE WILL BE A PROCESSION FOR SERGEANT HELUS IN VENTURA. IT IS GOING TO GO UP THE 101 AND THAT WILL START AT 10:00 A.M. BORDERLINE, AS WE MENTIONED, HAD THE VERY POPULAR NIGHT ONCE A WEEK, ON WEDNESDAYS, IT WAS A COUNTRY COLLEGE NIGHT, IT WAS 18 AND UP, SEVERAL PEOPLE ATTENDED THAT, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WERE INSIDE THAT BAR WHEN THAT SHOOTING HAPPENED. AND A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT GUNMAN. WE HAVE FINALLY BEEN ABLE TO 28-YEAR-OLD IAN DAVID LONG, WHO LIVED IN NEWBURY PARK, WITH HIS MOTHER. WE KNOW HE SERVED IN THE MARINES. NEIGHBORS NOT CONFIRMED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT YET, BUT NEIGHBORS AND MORE THAN ONE NEIGHBOR TOLD US HE SUFFERED FROM PTSD. HE HAD A LITTLE RUN-IN WITH THE LAW, NOTHING MAJOR, POLICE SAY, BUT OVERALL DESCRIBED AS BEING VERY PRIVATE, AND BEING QUIET. SO OUR REPORTER JONATHAN GONZALEZ IS LIVE OUTSIDE OF HIS HOUSE IN NEWBURY PARK. HE’S BEEN TALKING TO SOME NEIGHBORS OUT THERE WHO IS GIVING HIM SOME INFORMATION THAT THAT AREA IS CLOSED OFF, INVESTIGATORS, FBI GOING, SPEAKING TO WHOEVER IS INSIDE OF IAN DAVID — INSIDE THAT HOME, BUT ALSO GOING TO THE NEIGHBORS TRYING TO GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT LONG. >>Reporter: YEAH, SO RIGHT NOW THEY’RE ACTUALLY EXPANDING THE CRIME SCENE TO THE NEXT STORE HOUSES OF WHERE THIS HAPPENED. WE WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT’S GOING ON. WE SAW THOUSAND OEKZ POLICE OFF OFFICERS ARRIVING HERE, STRETCHING THE CRIME SCENE FROM BEYOND THE HOUSE OFF IN THE DISTANCE WITH THE RED TRUCK IN THE DRIVEWAY WHERE IAN LONG WAS BELIEVED TO LIVE WITH HIS MOM. THAT’S ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE NEIGHBORS. WE TALK ABOUT INCIDENTS LIKE THIS, HUMAN NATURE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT IF THERE WERE ANY SIGNS OF ANYTHING THAT COULD HAVE LED UP TO THIS. UNFORTUNATELY, YOU KNOW, WE SPEAK TO NEIGHBORS, OF COURSE NOBODY COULD EVER PREDICT THAT SOMEBODY COULD CARRY OUT SUCH A HEINOUS AND HORRIFIC CRIME AND SUCH A TRAGEDY. ONE INCIDENT WE HAVE HEARD FROM MULTIPLE NEIGHBORS IS THAT THIS INCIDENT IN APRIL, IN WHICH THE SHOOTER, IAN LONG, HAD TO CALL 911 ON HIM, THEY COULD HEAR HIM SCREAMING INSIDE THE HOUSE, SAID IT SOUND LIKE HE WANTED TO TEAR THE WALLS OFF. ONE NEIGHBORHOOD WE SPOKE WITH ACTUALLY IS THE ONE WHO CALLED 911, WE’LL LISTEN TO THAT IN A MOMENT AND LISTEN AFTER WHEN WE SPOKE WITH HIS OTHER NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR WHO SAID HE DIDN’T HAVE MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HIM, THAT HE DIDN’T EVER REALLY SEE HIM. TAKE A LISTEN.>>SHOCK. MESSED UP.>>WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT HIS FAMILY, HOW LONG HAVE THEY LIVED HERE?>>AT LEAST TEN YEARS. LIVED ALONE WITH HIS MOTHER. HIS MOTHER, SHE AND I WERE PRETTY GOOD FRIENDS, SEE HER ALL THE TIME. HARDLY EVER SAW HIM OUTSIDE THE HO HOUSE. >>AND SO THAT WAS — I’M SORRY, I DON’T THINK WE HAD THE SOUND BITE, BUT THAT WAS ONE OF THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS SAYING WHEN HE DID SEE HIM OUTSIDE THE HOUSE, HE DIDN’T SAY MUCH. RIGHT NOW SHERIFFS AND THE FBI ON SCENE, ALONG WITH THOUSAND OAKS POLICE, TRYING TO WAIT TO GET A SEARCH WARRANT APPROVAL SO THEY CAN SEARCH THE HOUSE. WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE FRONT DOOR IS OPEN, WE ASSUME THAT LONG’S MOTHER IS NO LONGER HERE AT THE PROPERTY, AT THE HOME, THAT SHE IS LIKELY TALKING TO INVESTIGATORS OFF SITE FROM HERE AND SO, YOU KNOW, JUST A LOT OF UNKNOWN RIGHT NOW. THIS INVESTIGATION REALLY JUST GETTING UNDER WAY, THEY ASSUME THAT THERE IS SOMETHING POTENTIALLY IN THIS HOUSE THAT WILL LEAD THEM TO FIGURE OUT WHY HE MAY HAVE DONE THIS OR AT THE VERY LEAST THE STEPS THAT HE MAY HAVE TAKEN TO PLAN FOR THIS HORRIFIC SHOOTING, GUYS.>>YOU’VE BEEN THERE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR OR SO NOW AT THAT HOME. HAVE YOU — YOU SPOKE TO ONE OR TWO NEIGHBORS, ANYBODY ELSE GATHERING AT THAT HOME, MAYBE SOME PEOPLE THAT KNEW IAN LONG THAT MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY OR WANT TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT?>>Reporter: YOU KNOW, ONLY HIS NEIGHBORS, A FEW WE HAVE SPOKEN WITH, NO ONE REALLY EVER — NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM OTHER THAN THE TWO PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON EITHER SIDE OF HIM. EVEN THEN THEY DON’T KNOW MUCH TO SAY. THEY WOULD SAY HE WAS A BIG DODGER FAN. THEY WOULD GO TO DODGER GAMES. ONE PHOTO WE SAW THIS MORNING OF THE SHOOTER, THAT WAS AT DODGER STADIUM, THEY TALKED ABOUT HIS MILITARY EXPERIENCE, SOME PEOPLE MENTIONED THE WORD PTSD, THAT’S SOMETHING WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH. BUT MULTIPLE PEOPLE SAYING THERE IS — THERE WAS SIGNS OF PTSD OR HE WAS HAVING TROUBLE. THEY DID SAY HE DID GO TO HIGH SCHOOL IN THE AREA, THAT HE DID HAVE GIRLFRIENDS OVER THE YEARS, THAT HE LIVED HERE FOR MORE THAN TEN YEARS BUT THEY SAID THEY DIDN’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM, HE REALLY JUST DID KEEP TO HIMSELF. SO I BELIEVE WE HAVE THE SOUND BITE NOW FROM THE OTHER NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, HE SAID BACK IN APRIL, IT SOUNDED LIKE LONG WANTED TO TEAR DOWN THE WALLS AND HE FELT FORCED TO CALL 911.>>I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING. SOUNDED LIKE HE WAS BANGING ON THE WALLS OR SOMETHING.>>I CALLED THE POLICE ON HIM THAT TIME, JUST BECAUSE I DIDN’T — I DIDN’T KNOW IF HE WAS — IF HE WAS HURTING HIMSELF. AND I CERTAINLY DIDN’T WANT THAT. AND EVERYTHING WENT — SEEMED TO GO BACK TO NORMAL AFTER THAT.>>Reporter: AND EVERYTHING DID SEEM TO GO BACK TO NORMAL AFTER THAT UNTIL LAST NIGHT. AND UNTIL THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FOUND OUT JUST LIKE THE REST OF THOUSAND OAKS THAT THIS HORRIFIC SHOOTING HAD TAKEN PLACE. MOST OF THEM WERE SHOOTING AS OUR COVERAGE HAD GONE ON, BUT THEY WOKE UP TO THIS HORRIFIC NEWS. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON THIS STREET, IN THIS BLOCK, IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, FOUND OUT THE SHOOTER LIVED NEXT TO THEM.>>JONATHAN, IT IS JUST SO INTERESTING BECAUSE YOU’RE TALKING TO ALL THESE NEIGHBORS HERE, AND YOU’RE HEARING FROM ONE WHO SAYS, KIND OF QUIET, KEPT TO HIMSELF, HEARING FROM ANOTHER WHO SAID HE WAS IRATE AND ACTING OUT AND IT APPEARED HE MIGHT HURT HIMSELF OR OTHER PEOPLE. YOU’RE GETTING VARYING STORIES AND ACCOUNTS FROM DIFFERENT NEIGHBORS ABOUT HOW IAN DAVID LONG BEHAVED.>>Reporter: YEAH, AN ISOLATED INCIDENT, ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE PEOPLE HERE. THEY HAD — OTHERWISE NO TROUBLE BEFORE THAT, NO TROUBLE AFTER THAT. YOU DID MENTION HE DID HAVE SOMEWHAT OF SOME RUN-INS WITH POLICE, BUT NOTHING THAT COULD HAVE INDICATED THAT HE COULD EVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS. NOTHING I DON’T THINK THESE — HE COULD HAVE EVER DONE TO INDICATE THAT HE WOULD, YOU KNOW, GO ON A RAMPAGE, A SHOOTING RAMPAGE LIKE LAST NIGHT. SO PEOPLE HERE ARE JUST TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF IT, LIKE THE REST OF US ARE. >>WE TALKED WITH THE SHERIFF THIS MORNING, HE SAID THESE WERE MINOR INCIDENTS, MINOR RUN-INS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE PAST, A TRAFFIC COLLISION, AS WELL AS A BATTERY. SO POSSIBLY A FIGHT AT A BAR IN WHICH HE WAS THE VICTIM. SO WE’RE STARTING TO GET A LITTLE BIT BETTER IDEA OF WHO IAN DAVID LONG WAS. BUT, JONATHAN, THE BIG QUESTION REMAINING, PEOPLE STILL WANT TO KNOW WHY. THERE IS NO MOTIVE AT THIS POINT AND IT COULD BE INDEFINITE, IT COULD BE HOURS, IT COULD BE DAYS, BEFORE WE FIND OUT WHY AND IN FACT SADLY WE MAY NEVER FIND OUT WHY, ACCORDING TO PETE WILLIAMS WITH NBC NEWS. HE SAID SOMETIMES WE NEVER FIND OUT THE MOTIVE LIKE WHAT WE SAW WITH THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING MASSACRE.>>Reporter: WE THINK ABOUT THE ROUTE 91 MASSACRE, WE DON’T KNOW WHY THAT SHOOTER DID THAT. IT IS VERY LIKELY, YOU’RE RIGHT, AS SAD AS THAT CAN BE, WE DON’T KNOW WHY THIS PERSON DID WHAT HE DID LAST NIGHT. THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE TO SEARCH THE HOME. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE HERE. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE WAITING TO GO INSIDE. THE ONLY PART THAT WE HAVE SEEN INSIDE IS THAT, YOU KNOW, THE FRONT DOOR IS OPEN. AGENTS ARE WAITING OUTSIDE THE HOME HERE OR MAY HAVE GONE IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES. WE HAVE BEEN PUSHED BACK. THOUSAND OAKS IS HERE TO PATROL US. BUT THEY MAY HAVE GONE INSIDE. THIS IS WHY THEY CONDUCT THE SEARCH WARRANTS, IS THERE ANYTHING INSIDE THE HOME, INSIDE HIS ROOM, ANY EVIDENCE AS TO THE WEAPONS, AS TO MAYBE A NOTE, ANYTHING THAT COULD HAVE INDICATED HE WAS GOING TO CARRY OUT THIS ACT. COULD ANYBODY ELSE HAVE KNOWN? WERE THERE ANY THREATS ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ANY SIGNS, ANY POTENTIAL, YOU KNOW, INDICATORS THAT THIS MAY HAVE — THIS WAS GOING TO TAKE PLACE AND THAT IS WHY, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE GOING TO CONDUCT THIS VERY THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AND WE KNOW THAT FBI AGENTS ARE HERE FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AND MORE WILL COME. THE ATF IS ASSISTING. VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFFS, OF COURSE, SO IT IS GOING TO BE A VERY THOROUGH INVESTIGATION, THEY HOPE TO GET AS MANY ANSWERS AS POSSIBLE. >>THE ATF TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE IAN LONG BOUGHT THE GUN, THE SHERIFF TELLING US HE DID BUY THE GUN LEGALLY. BUT THEY’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT ALL THE SPECIFICS AND THE BACKGROUND INFORMATION REGARDING THAT. I KNOW THEY PUSHED YOU FURTHER AWAY FROM THE HOME. HAVE YOU SEEN ANY OTHER DIFFERENCES? MORE LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOWING UP? YOU’VE BEEN THERE FOR OVER AN HOUR NOW.>>Reporter: YEAH, WE HAVE SEEN A LOT — SEVERAL — THE BIGGEST LAW ENFORCEMENT NOW IS ON SCENE IS THE FBI. AND THE FBI AGENTS SHOWED UP ALMOST SEEMINGLY ALL AT ONCE. AND THEY ALL WALKED UP TO THE HOUSE WITHIN THE LAST 10 TO 15 MINUTES OR SO AND THEY FELT THE NEED TO STRETCH THIS OUT. ONE PIECE OF PERSPECTIVE IS, YOU KNOW, WE REALLY TENDED — THEY’RE ONLY SEARCHING THE HOME AT THIS POINT, BUT THE REASON THEY SAID THEY STRETCHED THIS OUT, THE SCENE, IS BECAUSE THEY NEED SPACE FOR EVIDENCE. >>OKAY, JONATHAN, THANKS. IN A MOMENT, HERE, WE’RE GOING TO INTRODUCE NBC 4’S KATHY VARA JOINING US WITH COVERAGE.>>AS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE AREA VERY WELL, WHO LIVED OUT THERE IN THE PAST, SPENT TIME OUT THERE, IT WAS SHOCKING TO WAKE UP. I WENT TO BED LIKE MANY PEOPLE DID LAST NIGHT NOT KNOWING WHAT WAS HAPPENING, WAKING UP TO THE TRAGIC NEWS. AND IT IS JUST SO HEART FELT WHEN YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SAY THIS WAS A SAFE AREA. WE MOVED OUT HERE BECAUSE WE LOVE THIS AREA, THERE IS NOT A LOT OF CRIME, AS YOU SAID, MANY PUBLICATIONS HAVE TOUTED IT AS ONE OF THE SAFEST CITIES IN AMERICA. AND THEN THIS HAPPENS. AND THE SHERIFF HEARING HIM TALK THIS MORNING, HE’S ABOUT TO RETIRE, AND THE DEPUTY, THE DEPUTY KILLED TODAY. A VETERAN, A HERO. >>AND JUST ON HIS PHONE WITH HIS WIFE IN THE COMMUNITY, LIVED IN MOORPARK AND THEY WERE ON THEIR NIGHTLY CALL BECAUSE HE WORKED THIS LATE SHIFT AND WOULD CHECK IN WITH EACH OTHER PERIODICALLY DURING THE SHIFT AND DURING THAT PHONE CALL WHERE SERGEANT HELUS SAID, HONEY, I GOT TO GO, I GOT TO RESPOND TO THIS CALL. >>HOW MANY TIMES HAVE — YOU IMAGINE THAT HE SAID THAT TO HER, HOW MANY TIMES HAS HE SAID, YOU KNOW, JUST GOT TO GO ON THIS CALL, YOU KNOW, AND SHE PROBABLY SAID TO HIM, OKAY, BE SAFE, I’LL TALK TO YOU LATER AND YOU DON’T EXPECT THIS TO HAPPEN. I KNOW IT HAS BECOME A THING NOW WHERE IN AMERICA WE HAVE SEEN MASS SHOOTINGS. UNFORTUNATELY IT ALMOST HAS BECOME THE NORM. I THINK BACK TO LAS VEGAS, THERE WERE SOME PEOPLE INSIDE WHO WERE PART OF LAS VEGAS. WE HAD MANY, MANY RESIDENTS WHO WERE THERE, SO CLOSE, AND SUCH A POPULAR VENUE, SUCH A POPULAR COUNTRY MUSIC VENUE. WE WERE ALSO THERE THAT NIGHT COVERING IT AS IT BROKE OUT. TO TONI GUINYARD NOW. SHE IS LIVE WITH MORE INFORMATION. TONI?>>Reporter: GOOD MORNING. WHEN THE SHERIFF, SHERIFF DEAN WAS SPEAKING, A LOT OF INFORMATION WAS BEING GIVEN. HE WAS VERY GENEROUS AND VERY GENEROUS WITH HIS TIME ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS. ONE THING THAT WENT PAST ME, HE WAS ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT THE HEROICS. AND HE MADE A STATEMENT THAT I DIDN’T CATCH AT THE TIME, BUT WE WENT BACK AND LISTENED TO AND I HAVE SINCE CONFIRMED THAT THERE WERE THREE OXNARD POLICE OFFICERS AND THREE LAPD OFFICERS INSIDE BORDERLINE BAR & GRILL WHEN THE SHOOTING HAPPENED. GO AHEAD AND TAKE A LOOK AT SOME VIDEO WE SHOT WHEN WE GOT HERE EARLY THIS MORNING. SOME OF THE EMPLOYEES OF THAT VENUE WERE HUDDLED TOGETHER, SOME OF THEM IN PRAYER. ALL OF THEM WEARING YELLOW BLANKETS. I APPROACHED THEM, THEY CONFIRMED THEY WERE EMPLOYEES, TOLD ME THEY HAD BEEN DIRECTED NOT TO SPEAK TO THE NEWS MEDIA. I TOLD THEM I UNDERSTOOD. IF I COULD, I WOULD GIVE THEM ALL A BIG HUG. THE SHERIFF DESCRIBED WHAT THE INTERIOR OF THIS VENUE LOOKS LIKE NOW AS HELL. IT LOOKS LIKE HELL. YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT GIVEN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WERE KILLED. HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT THE SERGEANT WHO WAS KILLED, ONE OF THE INNOCENT VICTIMS IN ALL OF THIS. AND THE FACT THAT WORKING THIS SHIFT, ADRIAN, YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT IT, YOU CALL YOUR LOVED ONES JUST TO CHECK IN AND HE HAD JUST SPOKEN TO HIS WIFE MOMENTS BEFORE.>>SERGEANT HELUS WAS HAVING A CONF CONVERSATION ON THE PHONE WITH HIS WIFE AS HE DOES SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE SHIFT AND HE SAID, I GOT TO GO, I’LL TALK TO YOU LATER.>>Reporter: ALL OF US WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IAN DAVID LONG, THE SUSPECT IN ALL OF THIS. HE WAS KILLED. THE SHERIFF BELIEVES HE KILLED HIMSELF. THIS INVESTIGATION IS GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME. YOU HAVE SO MANY VICTIMS. AND THERE ARE NO SECURITY CAMERAS, NO VIDEO, WE’RE TOLD, OF THE INSIDE OF THE VENUE. WE DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TOOK PLACE AS WE ALWAYS GO AND CANVASS FOR VIDEOTAPE. IN THIS CASE, HE SAID THERE IS NONE. WE HAVE ALL THESE WITNESS ACCOUNTS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND THE SHERIFF HEARD ABOUT WHAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE DID TO GET OUT TO SAFETY.>>TONI, THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW THIS AFFECTS THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY. AND WE JUST GOT THIS TWEET IN FROM THE LOS ANGELES RAMS, I THINK WE WANT TO PUT IT UP FOR YOU, THIS AFFECTS NOT ONLY, YOU KNOW, THE DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOODS, THE SPORTS TEAMS, BECAUSE PLAYERS SET UP TO LIVE HERE WITH THEIR FAMILIES AND CERTAINLY THIS THE HITS HOME. THE RAMS TRAIN NEAR THE SCENE OF THE SHOOTING, ABOUT TEN MINUTES AWAY AT CAL LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY. WE HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM MEKAHLO MEDINA, THEY WENT TO THE CHAPEL AFTER THE SHOOTING OVERNIGHT BECAUSE THEY NEEDED PEACE OF MIND.>>THE ORGANIZATION IS HEART BROKEN BY THE HORRIFIC SHOOTING THAT TOOK PLACE LAST NIGHT IN OUR COMMUNITY OF THOUSAND OAKS. OUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE VICTIMS, THEIR FAMILIES AND OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY. AND YOU KNOW WE’LL KEEP HEARING MORE AND MORE FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS. IT IS AT A TIME LIKE THIS WHERE WE HAVE NEWS THAT IS SO TRAGIC, YOU ALMOST — YOU ALMOST CAN’T COMPREHEND IT. PEOPLE JUST NEED TO REACH OUT IN SOME WAY AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE DOING. LET’S GO TO JOHN. WE’RE WAITING FOR THE TRANSPORT OF THAT HERO’S BODY, JOHN?>>Reporter: WE KNOW THIS PROCESS TOO WELL BECAUSE WE COVER IT SO OFTEN. WE KNOW THERE IS GOING TO BE A PROCESSION THAT WILL TAKE US FROM THE HOSPITAL HERE TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE. WE KNOW PEOPLE ARE ALREADY MAKING THE PLANS FOR THIS SERGEANT’S FUNERAL. SERGEANT RON HELUS BEING REMEMBERED TODAY AS A HERO. I WANT TO SHOW YOU THE MAP, IT GIVES YOU AN EXAMPLE OF WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO BE TRAVELING TODAY, LEAVING THE HOSPITAL HERE, TAKING THE 101 NORTH, THEY’LL EXIT MAIN STREET, ABOUT 25 MILES IN TOTAL, EXIT MAIN STREET, HEAD UP MILLS ROAD AND THAT’S WHAT WILL TAKE THEM TO THE VENTURA COUNTY MEDICAL CENTER, WHERE THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE IS. THAT’S WHERE HIS BODY WILL BE, WHERE THEY CONTINUE THEIR INVESTIGATION AND THE EXAMINATION ITSELF BEFORE THEY PREPARE IT FOR HIS FUNERAL SERVICES AND HIS ULTIMATE BURIAL. WE KNOW THERE WILL BE A LOT OF PEOPLE STANDING BY WATCHING AS THE MOTORCADE MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH. WE’LL HAVE NEWS CHOPPER 4 UP IN THE AIR AS WELL. A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT SERGEANT HELUS TODAY, TALKING ABOUT HIM AS A HERO. HE KNEW WHAT THE DANGERS WERE AND THE JOB AND YOU HEARD A LITTLE WHILE AGO THAT THE SHERIFF TALKING ABOUT THE LAST PHONE CALL HE MADE BEFORE HE WENT INTO THAT NIGHTCLUB, SPEAKING TO HIS WIFE, TELLING HER HE HAD TO GO, THAT THERE WAS A CALL HE NEEDED TO GET TO AND WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT. SERGEANT HELUS REMEMBERED AS A HERO, A LOT OF PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THAT NOW. AND WE’RE JUST WAITING FOR THIS MOTORCADE TO BEGIN, 10:00 IS THE TIME THEY’LL DO THAT. ABOUT 9:30. ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF IS WHEN THEY START CLOSING OFF THE ROAD HERE IN FRONT OF THE HOSPITAL AND BRINGING IN QUITE A FEW DIFFERENT PATROL UNITS FROM NOT JUST VENTURA COUNTY, BUT WE’RE EXPECTING TO SEE IT FROM AROUND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. WE KNOW WE HAVE SEEN L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES COME THROUGH AS WELL. EVERYBODY IS PREPARING FOR WHAT IS TO BE A 30 MINUTE DRIVE FROM THE HOSPITAL TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE STARTING AT 10:00 AND WE’LL BRING THAT TO YOU LIVE, GUYS. >>JOHN, SHERIFF DEAN WAS TALKING ABOUT SERGEANT HELUS THAT HE WAS THE ONE WHO HAD TO BREAK THE NEWS TO THE SERGEANT’S WIFE. AND IT TURNS OUT THE SHERIFF AND THE SERGEANT WERE CLOSE PERSONAL FRIENDS, THEY WOULD WORK OUT TOGETHER AND THAT’S WHY I UNDERSTAND IT HAS BEEN AN EXTREMELY EMOTIONAL OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING FOR THE SHERIFF. JOHN, YOU WERE TALKING WITH THE PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER OUT THERE, GIVING YOU SOME INSIGHT INTO THIS PROCESSION AND UNFORTUNATELY AS YOU MENTIONED, WE HAVE COVERED TOO MANY OF THESE. YOU PROVIDED SOME INSIGHT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS BEFORE AND CAN PARTICIPATE, HE GAVE YOU SOME INSIGHT. CAN YOU SHARE AND DESCRIBE WHAT HE TOLD YOU?>>Reporter: HE DID. HE SAID THAT SERGEANT HELUS WAS ACTUALLY HIS DIRECT SUPERVISOR, HE’S TAKEN IT A LITTLE MORE PERSONAL TOO. HE SAID IF YOU NEVER WITNESSED A PROCESSION FOR A FALLEN OFFICER, IT IS SOMETHING TO BEHOLD. HE THINKS THAT — HE HOPES THAT AS PEOPLE WATCH THAT, THAT THEY REMEMBER THAT THESE DEPUTIES, THESE POLICE OFFICERS, THESE PATROL OFFICERS, THEY’RE OUT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY, INTO THE EVENING, WHILE YOU’RE ASLEEP. THEY’RE STILL OUT PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY. AND LAST NIGHT SERGEANT HELUS DID JUST THAT. GIVING HIS OWN LIFE AND VERY LIKELY SAVING OTHERS’ LIVES BY DOING SO. WE KNOW THE MOMENT HE WENT IN IS WHEN EVERYTHING STARTED TO CHANGE FOR THAT GUNMAN. WE TALKED ABOUT THE 2 1/2 MINUTES THAT THE SHOOTING WAS HAPPENING, AND THEN THAT IS ABOUT THE TIME THAT SERGEANT HELUS MADE ENTRY AND IT WAS SHORTLY AFTER THEN THAT WE KNOW NOW FROM THE SHERIFF HIMSELF THAT THE SUSPECT, THE SHOOTER ENDED UP TAKING HIS OWN LIFE. IT CAN BE ARGUED THAT IT WAS SERGEANT HELUS’ ATTEMPT TO GET INSIDE THAT ULTIMATELY LED TO THE FINAL END AND MAY HAVE SAVED LIVES FOR THOSE GUYS. >>THAT’S THE OATH HE TOOK, THAT’S THE OATH HE TOOK UPON HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY WHEN HE RAISED HIS RIGHT HAND AND AGREED TO TAKE PART IN THIS JOB, TO HOLD THIS JOB. UNFORTUNATELY HE WAS JUST SO CLOSE TO RETIRING. YOU KNOW, JUST PRAYERS GOING OUT TO HIS FAMILY RIGHT NOW AND I’M SURE THERE WILL BE A HUGE TURNOUT FOR THE PROCESSION. >>I BELIEVE SO. YOU’RE LOOKING AT HIS FACEBOOK PAGE. IT WAS TURNED INTO A REMEMBRANCE PAGE OVERNIGHT. AND THE FAMILY VERY GRATEFUL FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO CHECK THIS OUT. THEY’RE INVITING PEOPLE TO COME BY AND PAY THEIR RESPECTS ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE. IT APPEARED THAT SERGEANT HELUS LOVED THE OUTDOORS, POSTED MANY PICTURES, NOT EXACTLY SURE RIGHT HERE, WE DO KNOW HE DID HAVE A SON, IT LOOKS LIKE THAT MIGHT BE HIS SON IN THE PHOTOGRAPH HERE ON FACEBOOK. WE KNOW THAT SERGEANT HELUS IS SURVIVED BY A WIFE AND A SON AND THE SHERIFF SAID HE LIVED FOR HIS JOB. HE LIVED IT AND BREATHED IT AND HE REALLY CARED ABOUT HIS COMMUNITY AND LIVED IN MOORPARK, SO CLOSE TO WHERE ALL THIS TRANSPIRED. >>THE SAME GENERAL AREA, THE SAME COMMUNITY, AND HE WENT IN THERE, NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT. AND MAY HAVE TURNED THIS WHOLE THING AROUND. WHO KNOWS HOW MANY LIVES HE SAVED BY HIS FEARLESS ACTIONS AND WHAT HE DID AS HE WALKED INTO THAT BAR LAST NIGHT.>>THE SHERIFF SAYING HE SAVED MANY PEOPLE’S LIVES AND MOST DEFINITELY LIVED A HERO AND DIED A HERO AND YOU’RE LOOKING AT SOME OF THE VIDEO NOW, THE CHAOTIC MOMENTS WHEN ALL OF THIS WAS UNFOLDING, RIGHT AROUND 11:20 LAST NIGHT. WE’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT NINE HOURS AGO OR SO. YOU CAN SEE POLICE OFFICERS WITH THEIR WEAPONS DRAWN THERE, AND TRAINED ON THE LOCATION AND YOU SEAT PARAMEDICS START TO SHOW UP AS WELL. JUST A CHAOTIC SITUATION UNFOLDING AT THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. SHOTS FIRED AND SERGEANT HELUS HEARD THE REPORTS OF THE SHOTS BEING FIRED, HE RESPONDED WITH A CHP OFFICER, SO YOU HAVE MEMBERS FROM TWO DIFFERENT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES RESPONDING TO THIS BAR AND IT WAS WHEN SERGEANT HELUS WENT INSIDE, HE WAS SHOT, AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT HE WAS PULLED OUT PRESUMABLY BY THAT CHP OFFICER, RUSHED TO A HOSPITAL WHERE HE LATER PASSED AWAY.>>THIS WAS A COLLEGE NIGHT. THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE AREA ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH. IT HAS BEEN ONGOING. THIS IS AN ICONIC BAR. COUNTRY MUSIC FANS, THIS WAS COLLEGE NIGHT. SO WE HAD PEOPLE FROM VARIOUS COLLEGESATTENDING. AND THEY DESCRIBED IT AS THEIR HAPPY PLACE, THEY’RE SAFE PLACE, THEY WENT WITH FRIENDS. MANY CASES WHERE 12 FRIENDS, WE ALL KNEW EACH OTHER, WERE FAMILY, THEY KNEW THE PEOPLE AT THE FRONT DOOR, THEY KNEW SECURITY. AND, AGAIN, WE SAY THEY FELT SECURE IN THIS AREA. AND HERE THEIR LIVES ARE SHATTERED NOW. AND JUST THE SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY. YOU JUST HAVE TO FEEL UNEASY, EVEN IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW THIS WAS UNFOLDING, WAKING UP THIS MORNING AND HEARING ABOUT THIS. JUST GETTING A TEXT FROM A LOVED ONE OR FRIEND SAYING THIS HAPPENED LAST NIGHT, THOUSAND OAKS, AND PEOPLE ARE SAYING WHERE, WHERE, THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL. IT IS JUST SO WELL KNOWN TO EVERYONE. NOTHING LIKE THIS HAS HAPPENED. >>IT IS A LANDMARK, REALLY, FOR THAT COMMUNITY. IT HAS BEEN OPEN FOR OVER 25 YEARS. AND IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN THERE, IT IS A LARGE VENUE, MORE THAN 2500 SQUARE FEET. WE TALKED ABOUT IT BEING A COUNTRY MUSIC NIGHT, BUT REALLY A VENUE FOR ALL TYPES OF BIG EVENTS, THE BEACH BOYS PERFORMED THERE AT ONE POINT, THEY HAD COMEDY ACTS, ADAM CAROLLA PERFORMED THERE, COUNTRY MUSIC ACTS LIKE LEE BICE AND TYLER FARR. LAST NIGHT IT WAS ABOUT COLLEGE STUDENTS. YOU HAD YOUNG PEOPLE AS YOUNG AS 18 THERE LAST NIGHT, AND THE ESTIMATES ARE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 150 TO 200 PEOPLE, ONE OF THE SURVIVORS TELLING US THAT WAS A LITE NIGHT FOR A WEDNESDAY NIGHT. USUALLY THERE IS MORE THAN 200 PEOPLE THERE. THEY WERE NEVER GOING TO EXPECT THIS. NO ONE COULD EVER BE PREPARED FOR THAT. BUT YOU’RE LOOKING AT SOME OF THE VIDEO HERE AS OFFICERS WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON AND TRYING TO BRING THIS TO A HALT.>>WE’RE GOING TO GO TO ANNETTE RIGHT NOW. AT THE FAMILY REUNIFICATION CENTER OUT THERE IN THOUSAND OAKS. WE’RE CHECKING IN WITH HER. SHE’S BEEN TALKING TO SOME OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS I KNOW SO MANY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE WAITING TO GET INFORMATION. LET’S LISTEN. >>THE LONGER THEY WAIT, THE MORE INTENSE IT BECOMES. A LOT OF FOLKS IN THERE AS YOU CAN IMAGINE ARE CRYING AND A LOT OF TEARS, VERY SOMBER. AND WE GOT SHERIFF CHAPLAINS, FIRE CHAPLAINS, THE RED CROSS, VICTIMS ADVOCATES AND FBI VICTIM ADV ADVOCATES. THE CITY IS DOING EVERYTHING, THE COUNTY IS DOING EVERYTHING, SUPERVISOR OF PARKS IS HERE. I WANT TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU, YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE SAFEST CITY IN AMERICA. AND TAKE NOTE, IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE. THIS IS JUST AN AWFUL EVENT. THE CITIZENS OF OUR COMMUNITY ARE DEVASTATED. WE’RE HEART BROKEN. I’M A MINISTER HERE IN TOWN, SHERIFF CHAP LLAIN, I’M IN THER WITH THOSE FOLKS. WE’RE COMMITTED TO THEM. THERE WILL BE FUNERALS IN THIS TOWN. WE’RE GOING TO BE WITH THEM, REMEMBERING BIRTHDAYS A YEAR FROM NOW AND ANNIVERSARIES AND EVERYTHING NECESSARY AND EVERYBODY IN THIS WONDERFUL CITY OF THOUSAND OAKS IS GOING TO LOVE ON THESE FOLKS. I’M JUST — I’M GRATEFUL FOR FIRST RESPONDERS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, A LOT OF YOU KNOW WE LOST AN OFFICER TONIGHT. AND — TONIGHT. AND I DON’T KNOW ALL THE DETAILS, BUT THESE FOLKS ARE AMAZING. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOU COVERING IT. THE NATION GETS TO GRIEVE WITH US. AND WE SURE COULD USE YOUR PRAYERS. OFFICER HUTTON, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SHARE?>>I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW IT IS STILL A SLOW AND METHODICAL PROCESS. THEY’RE MAKING SURE THEY HAVE EVERYTHING LINED UP AND THEY’RE DOING THEIR BEST TO GO AND GET THIS INFORMATION OUT. EVERYBODY HERE WANTS TO KNOW, FAMILIES WANT TO KNOW, FRIENDS, RELATIVES, THE CITY, OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.>>CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT THE NOTIFICATION PROCESS WILL BE HERE?>>YES, FAMILY MEMBERS, IT WILL BE DESIGNATED FAMILY MEMBERS WILL BE ESCORTED WITH CHAPLAINS, VICTIM ADVOCATES AND COUNSELING. AND THEY’LL BE EXPLAINING THE PROCESS, THE LOSS OF THEIR LOVED ONES, AND RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE THAT WE CAN GO AHEAD AND PROVIDE. LIKE I SAID, BEFORE AS A COMMUNITY, WE’RE GOING TO DO OUR BEST, COME TOGETHER, AND WE’RE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS.>>CAN YOU GIVE US A SENSE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING? DOES EVERY FAMILY, WHAT IS THE SITUATION?>>YES, WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY 60 PEOPLE IN THERE RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE WILL BE ASSIGNED TO EVERY FAMILY MEMBER. AND PEOPLE ARE ANTSY, GETTING ANTSY, WALKING AROUND, SITTING DOWN, LEANING ON LOVED ONES AND IT IS A VERY, VERY DIFFICULT PROCESS RIGHT NOW KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WAIT. BUT WE JUST KEEP ON REASSURING THEM THAT, YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO — EVERYTHING IS GOING TO COME DOWN AND WE’LL BE ABLE TO MAKE THE NOTIFICATIONS AS SOON AS WE CAN.>>CAN YOU TELL US THE PROCESS BEFORE YOU — TO MAKE NOTIFICATION? WILL YOU WAIT UNTIL — THE NIGHTCLUB IS IDENTIFIED AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE?>>AS WE GET INFORMATION, WE’RE COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT. WE’RE GOING TO GET THIS INFORMATION OUT AS SOON AS WE CAN. YES.>>DO YOU TAKE ASIDE A FAMILY MEMBER, A FAMILY MEMBER WHO LOST A LOVED ONE OR — >>YES, ANYBODY THAT IS RELATED TO THIS INCIDENT, EVERYBODY WILL RECEIVE THE SAME TYPE OF COUNSELING, CARE AND CONSIDERATION THAT WE HAVE AND THE ALL THE RESOURCES WE HAVE AVAILABLE TODAY.>>AS OF THIS TIME, WE DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION.>>YOUR EXPERIENCE, YOU’RE GOING THROUGH — YES, SERGEANT RON HELUS, A GOOD FRIEND, YOU KNOW, HE’S A HERO, HE’S A HUSBAND. HE’S A FATHER. HE’S A FRIEND. HE’S A PARTNER. AND WE’RE ALL EXTREMELY DEVASTATED WHAT TRANSPIRED. HE WENT INTO THE BAR, PROTECTING, SERVING OTHERS, AND MAKING SURE EVERYBODY ELSE CAN GO HOME. AND UNFORTUNATELY HE’S NOT GOING HOME.>>IS THAT WHAT — IT BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUR EYES.>>IT IS VERY, VERY SAD FOR ALL OF US. YES.>>IS THERE ANY UPDATE ON THE PROCESS AS TO HOW THESE FAMILIES WILL BE — 20 PLUS SURVIVORS — >>YOU KNOW WHAT, THERE IS MEASURES IN LINE RIGHT NOW. I’M NOT FAMILIAR WITH EXACTLY THE ROLE CALL FOR THAT AT THIS TIME.>>HAVE ANY NOTIFICATIONS BEEN MADE YET?>>NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE. >>HAVE YOU GIVEN SOME NOTIFICATIONS YET?>>NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE. >>NOT HERE?>>NOT HERE, YES. YOU KNOW WHAT, I WASN’T UPDATED ON THE EXACT TIMELINE WHEN THESE NOTIFICATIONS ARE GOING TO BE MADE, BUT LIKE I SAID, WE’RE AWAITING THE INFORMATION. I’M IN THERE. WHEN NOTIFICATIONS GET MADE, I’LL MAKE SURE EVERYBODY KNOWS.>>WHAT INFORMATION ARE YOU STILL WAITING FOR?>>WE’RE WAITING FOR THE ACTUAL INFORMATION FROM THE DECEASED AND WE’RE MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE NEXT OF KIN AND FAMILY AVAILABLE OBSCENE, ON SITE.>>DO YOU NOTIFY THE FAMILY AND THE FAMILY MEMBER HAS TO GO SEE THE BODY TO — IS THAT HOW IT WORKS?>>YES. THERE IS A — THERE IS VARIOUS REPRESENTATIVES THAT WILL TAKE THE FAMILY OVER FOR THESE NOTIFICATIONS. THANK YOU.>>WE HAVE BEEN LISTENING IN TO VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICIALS TALKING AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER THERE ON JANES ROAD. AND WHAT THEY’RE DESCRIBING IS WHAT EVERYBODY HAS BEEN ON PINS AND NEEDLES ABOUT, THAT IS THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE KILLED IN THIS HORRIBLE INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED AND HOW THEY’LL BE VERIFIED. >>THE MAYOR, LET’S LISTEN IN. >>– PREPARE FOR THE WORST. WE HAVE BEEN WITH THEM AND THEY ALMOST DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT. THE LONGER THEY WAITED, IT APPEARS TO BE INEVITABLE TO MANY OF THEM. YOU JUST HUG THEM. AND — >>WE SAW YOU CONSOLE, YOU KNOW, JASON COFFMAN OUT HERE.>>YEAH. I COULD ASK THE SAME ABOUT YOU, HOW YOU DO YOUR JOB. SOME PEOPLE ARE GIFTED AT WHAT THEY DO. THIS IS WHAT I WAS CALLED TO DO, TO BE A MINISTER. AND I COULDN’T DO WHAT YOU DO. THAT’S FOR SURE. AND IT IS JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU GO INTO LIFE AND YOU JUST WANT TO BUILD A COMMUNITY AND NO COMMUNITY SHOULD HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS. THIS IS JUST AWFUL. AND WE JUST HAVE TO PICK UP THE PIECES OF THE MESS SOME IDIOT MADE AND WE’RE GOING TO DO IT. WE’RE GOING TO CARE FOR EVERY MEMBER OF THIS COMMUNITY.>>YOU KNOW SOME OF THE FAMILIES PERSONALLY, CORRECT?>>YES. CONGREGANTS AND, YEAH, IT IS PERSONAL.>>HOW DO YOU — >>YOU KNOW, YOU NEVER FORGET IT. YOU GET STRONGER GOING THROUGH IT. YOU SURROUND THEM IN A COMMUNITY, A LOT OF TALKING FROM THEIR END AND A LOT OF LISTENING FROM OUR END. EMPATHY, PATIENCE, THEY’RE GOING WORK THROUGH ALL KINDS OF EMOTIONS, GO THROUGH EVERY STAGE OF GRIEF, AND WE NEED FOLKS TO BE AROUND THEM EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. THEY WILL BE. THIS IS A COMMUNITY THAT STANDS TOGETHER. AND IT IS JUST A REMARKABLE — I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW WHAT A REMARKABLE CITY THOUSAND OAKS IS. YOU’LL BE GONE LONG AFTER ALL THIS IS SETTLED, BUT TRUST ME, THE FOLKS IN THIS COMMUNITY WILL BE LOVING ON THESE FAMILIES AND CARING FOR THEM LONG AFTER THE MEDIA IS GONE.>>YOU KNOW SOME OF THE CONGREGANTS HERE, YOU’RE THE PASTOR. INCLUDING SOME OF THEM THAT ARE WAITING TO FIND OUT. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THAT? YOU KNOW PERSONALLY IN THIS SITUATION IT IS VERY DIFFICULT. >>JUST GET READY, BE PREPARED. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE WORST NEWS YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED. YOU’RE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS. WE’RE GOING TO BE WITH YOU. I HAVE A — FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, I HAVE A PRAYER.COM APP AND I’LL PULL THEM OUT AND SHOW YOU ALL THE PEOPLE PRAYING FOR YOU, NAME AFTER NAME AFTER NAME, PEOPLE SCROLLING. THE COMFORT OF THAT, PEOPLE THINK IT IS TRITE TO SAY, ALL THEY HAVE ARE THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS, IT IS SO PROFOUND FOR THE FOLKS IN THERE. THAT’S WHAT THIS COMMUNITY DOES. WE GATHER TOGETHER AND WE JUST TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM. I’M SORRY?>>IS THERE ANY GOOD NEWS, WAS SOMEBODY FOUND?>>NOT AT THIS POINT THAT I’VE WITNESSED.>>HAS ANYONE RECEIVED NOTIFICATION THAT THEIR FAMILY MEMBER HAS — >>I’M NOT AWARE OF THAT.>>MAYBE SOME OF YOU SAW — I GAVE THEM A HUG. I DIDN’T STEP INTO HIS PRIVATE WORLD OR ASK ANY DETAILS CONCERNING THAT. HE’S IN THERE. HE’S BEING CONSOLED AND COMFORTED. HE APPEARS TO BE WAITING LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. A LOT OF YOU REPORTED THAT HE HAD RECEIVED NOTIFICATION, IT APPEARED TO ME HE HAD AS WELL, BUT NO ONE IN THE ROOM INCLUDING THE SHERIFFS CAN CONFIRM THAT. I CAN’T. I WAS JUST THERE FOR WHATEVER HE HAD PERCEIVED TO BE NEWS. AND I DON’T JUDGE WHAT HE RECEIVED. I JUST KNEW HE NEEDED TO HAVE SOME COMFORT.>>DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE RECEIVED? WHAT WAS THAT — >>I DON’T. I KNOW THAT IT WAS HEAVY AND HE DIDN’T WANT TO SHARE IT WITH OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS SO, YEAH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, EVERYBODY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COVERAGE OF THIS. OUR COMMUNITY DESPERATELY NEEDS IT AND FOR EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY, PLEASE KEEP OUR CITY AND PRAYER, WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF YOU. THANK YOU.>>THAT IS THE MAYOR PRO TEM OF THOUSAND OAKS THERE. WE SAW HIM EARLIER THIS MORNING, HUGGING A FATHER WHO IS WAITING FOR INFORMATION ABOUT HIS SON, WHO HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE THIS SHOOTING OCCURRED. THIS IS A GUT-WRENCHING TIME FOR SO MANY PARENTS NOW. THAT’S THE REUNIFICATION CENTER WHERE THE MAYOR PRO TEM WAS SPEAKING. 50 TO 60 PEOPLE WAITING INSIDE NOW, WAITING TO HEAR, HOW THEIR LOVED ONES ARE DOING. AND SO FAR NO ANSWERS HAVE BEEN GIVEN. WHEN WE DID HEAR FROM THE SHERIFF EARLIER IN THIS HOUR, HE SAID HE’S VERY COGNIZANT THIS IS ESSENTIALLY HELL ON EARTH FOR THESE PARENTS TO BE WAITING LIKE THIS AND HE’S TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THEM AND NOTIFY THEM ONE WAY OR THE OTHER AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.>>THE CHAPLAIN DESCRIBED THEM GETTING ANTSY. YOU CAN IMAGINE, THEY DON’T KNOW. THEY HAVEN’T HEARD, MANY OF THEM TRYING TO CALL THEIR CELL PHONES AND NOT GETTING ANY ANSWER. THEY DON’T KNOW WHETHER THEY ARE STILL IN THERE, AND THE WORST HAS HAPPENED OR IF THEY’RE POSSIBLY AT ONE OF THE LOCAL HOSPITALS AND RECEIVING TREATMENT OR WHO KNOWS AND THEY SIMPLY CAN’T GET A HOLD OF THEM. SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO EXPLAIN WHAT THEY MUST BE FEELING AND HOW THEY JUST WANT ANY INFORMATION. >>HEARD FROM A FATHER THIS MORNING, ROBERT KAVASIK SPOKE TO SOMEONE LOOKING FOR HIS ADULT SON. HE WAS CONTINUOUSLY CALLING HIM, HOPING, PRAYING, WISHING HE WOULD ANSWER THE PHONE AND THERE WAS NO ANSWER AND AS FAR AS WE KNOW THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO REUNITE JUST YET. IT GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE ANGUISH THAT SOME OF THE PARENTS WERE GOING THROUGH, NOT HAVING ANY ANSWERS OR INFORMATION OR DETAILS AT THIS TIME. >>YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. THEY HAVE NOTHING ELSE THEY CAN DO. YOU WOULD JUST CALL AND CALL AND CALL, HOPING THAT SOMEONE WOULD ANSWER, THAT YOU COULD FIND OUT SOMETHING. BUT WHAT WE HEARD THERE FROM SHERIFF OFFICIALS, THEY ARE WORKING AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN TO GET THE REUNIFICATION PROCESS UNDER WAY. THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE NEXT OF KIN CAN BE NOTIFIED AND THEY DO THIS ACCURATELY. AND YOU HAVE TO FEEL FOR THEM BECAUSE AT THE SAME TIME THEY’RE TRYING TO DO THIS FOR THESE PEOPLE, THEY HAVE LOST ONE OF THEIR OWN. SO THERE IS A LOT OF GRIEVING, A LOT OF JUST TENSION AND HURT HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. BUT THEY DID DESCRIBE WHAT WOULD BE HAPPENING INSIDE, THEY SAID THEY’RE ABOUT 60 PEOPLE INSIDE THERE. AND THE NOTIFICATION PROCESS WOULD BE VERY TRANSPARENT, THEY SAID. THEY SAID THE FAMILY MEMBERS WOULD BE ESCORTED BY A CHAPLAIN OR BY SOME TYPE OF FAMILY SERVICES MEMBER AND THAT COUNSELING WOULD BE AVAILABLE. AND MANY RESOURCES ALSO MADE AVAILABLE TO THE FAMILIES AND HE STRESSED OVER AND OVER AGAIN HOW TIGHT KNIT THE COMMUNITY WAS AND HOW THESE PEOPLE WOULD NOT BE ALONE AND EVEN AFTER THE STORY FADED, WHICH I DOUBT IT EVER WILL, WE STILL REMEMBER ALL THE SHOOTINGS THAT HAVE OCCURRED AND I THINK THEY HURT US ALL. AFTER THE COVERAGE DIES DOWN, THE COMMUNITY WILL HOLD TOGETHER. >>NEWS CHOPPER ALPHA OVER THE CRIME SCENE NOW. THAT’S WHERE WE FIND TONI GUINYARD ON THE GROUND, COVERING THIS STORY FOR HOURS. WHAT DO YOU HAVE?>>Reporter: WE’RE JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM WHERE THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE AND ONE OF THE PEOPLE I SPOKE WITH WAS A RESIDENT IN THE AREA. AND SHE DID WHAT SHE COULD WHEN YOU REALIZE SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I WANT TO BRING, FIRST OF ALL, OUR VIEWERS UP TO DATE. YOUR DAUGHTERS TEND TO GO TO THIS VENUE. THEY HAD FRIENDS THERE LAST NIGHT. THIS MORNING THEY DID NOT KNOW IF THEY WERE OKAY. WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED? HAVE YOUR DAUGHTERS CONNECTED?>>ORIGINALLY SHE WAS — OUR DAUGHTER WAS TALKING TO A FRIEND OF HERS WHO WAS HIDING IN A BATHROOM. WE HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO REACH HER. THE OTHER FRIEND WAS ABLE TO LEAVE BEFORE THE SHOOTING STARTED.>>AND THIS IS ONE OF YOUR EIGHT CHILDREN. SO YOU’RE A MOM — NUMBER SEVEN. YOU’RE A MOM WHO CARES, YOU CAME OUT HERE, YOU HEARD SILENCE AND THAT’S WHAT MADE YOU REALIZE SOMETHING WAS WRONG THAT’S WHAT’S IRONIC. AROUND HERE IT IS VERY, VERY QUIET. AND THIS CLUB HAS MUSIC GOING AND USUALLY IN THE EVENING YOU CAN HEAR IT. I CAN HEAR, OKAY, THE DANCING STARTED, AND THE KIDS ARE DANCING NOW AND THE MUSIC WENT SILENT AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS A LITTLE ODD. YOU HEAR THE SIRENS AND AS THE FIRST SIRENS START TO SHOW UP, I WALK OUTSIDE, WE LIVE AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE SHOOTING, AND AS I’M WALKING OUT THE DOOR, MY DAUGHTER CALLS AND SAYS, ONE OF MY OTHER DAUGHTER CALLS AND SAYS DON’T GO OUTSIDE, THERE IS A SHOOTING AT BORDERLINE. WHO IS THERE RIGHT NOW? WHICH ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS, MY KIDS, WHO IS THERE? WE QUICKLY ACCOUNT FOR EVERYBODY. AND THEN AS SOON AS SHE SAID MY FRIENDS WERE HIDING THERE, I THOUGHT, OKAY, WELL, I’VE GOT TO GO DOWN THERE, I’VE GOT TO SEE WHAT I CAN DO. THESE KIDS, THEY’RE LIKE MY KIDS, THEY ALL GREW UP TOGETHER.>>YOU AND I SHARED A BIT OF A MOMENT THIS MORNING, BECAUSE WE REALIZED WE WERE AROUND THE SAME GROUP OF PEOPLE, ALL HUDDLED TOGETHER, THEY WERE ALL HAD WRAPPED UP IN YELLOW BLANKETS. AND I APPROACHED THEM AND FOUND OUT THEY WERE EMPLOYEES. YOU HAD SOME ONE ON ONE CONTACT WITH THEM, MORE THAN I DO.>>YEAH. THEY WERE HIDING IN A BATHROOM, THEY HEARD THE SHOOTER COMING CLOSER TO THEM. AND THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE NEXT. THE BATHROOM DOOR OPENED, A GUN POKED THROUGH, AND THEY THOUGHT THIS WAS THE SHOOTER, BUT IT WAS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. SHE SAID SHE WAS TELLING EVERYBODY, THE MOMENT SHE SAW THE OFFICER, SHE KNEW SHE WAS SAFE. TEARS JUST CAME STREAMING DOWN HER FACE, AND SHE DIDN’T STOP. I DIDN’T SEE HER STOP CRYING THE WHOLE TIME I WAS WITH HER.>>YOU ALSO RELAYED ONE INTERACTION YOU HAD WITH A WITNESS, TWO YOUNG MEN. THEY THOUGHT THE OTHER — >>THE OTHER WAS DEAD. WE WERE STANDING RIGHT THERE, AND THESE TWO GUYS SAW EACH OTHER IN THE CROWD, AND RAN FOR EACH OTHER AND GRABBED EACH OTHER. AND I WAS VIDEOTAPING IT. AND THEY JUST SAID, I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD. I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD. WHERE IS SO AND SO? SHE’S SHOT, SHE’S AT THE HOSPITAL, LET’S GO AND THEY WENT.>>WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THIS, AND IT IS GRAPHIC IN A SENSE. IT IS HEART BREAKING ACROSS THE BOARD. YET YOU HAVE YOUR 11-YEAR-OLD HERE. AND HOW DO YOU HAVE THE CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED HERE IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY. 11 YEARS OLD WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND OF THIS OR DO YOU UNDERSTAND IT AT ALL?>>I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS A BAD MAN JUST GOING IN SHOOTING SOMEONE THAT MAYBE HAS A POINT, MAYBE THEY KNEW SOMEONE, MAYBE THEY HAD BAD BUSINESS WITH SOMEONE, MAYBE STUFF LIKE THAT, AND — >>BUT YOU JUST DON’T KNOW. >>YOU DON’T KNOW. BECAUSE HE’S DEAD. AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT HIS POINT OF VIEW MAYBE WAS, WHAT HE — WHAT HIS GOAL WAS TO DO. LIKE, WHO — WHAT IS YOUR POINT TO JUST GO SHOOT PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A BAD THING. IT IS CRAZY. WHO JUST WALKS IN TO A BAR THAT KIDS ARE HAVING FUN TRYING TO HAVE THEIR COLLEGE LIFE AND SHOOT THEM? BECAUSE THERE IS REALLY NO POINT TO THAT. IT IS NOT GOING TO — ONLY THING IT IS GOING TO DO IS MAKE PEOPLE AFRAID. THEY’RE GOING TO BE SCARED. THEY’RE GOING TO BE, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, THIS JUST HAPPENED. >>SHE’S SCARED.>>YEAH.>>SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL TODAY. SHE IS SCARED. THOUSAND OAKS TOO, WE’RE MEMBERS OF THE MASS SHOOTING CLUB NOW. WHO THOUGHT? WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?>>IT BREAKS YOUR HEART, THOUGH. ALL OF THIS BREAKS YOUR HEART. I WANT TO POINT OUT TO OUR VIEWERS AND THOSE OF YOU BACK AT THE STATION THAT WE TALK ABOUT SITUATIONS LIKE THIS, BUT YOU GET WISDOM FROM AN 11-YEAR-OLD WHO SAYS IT MAKES NO SENSE. THAT’S WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW. VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT, THE FBI, SO MANY DIFFERENT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES WORKING TO FIGURE OUT THE MOTIVE BEHIND ALL OF THIS. I HEARD JONATHAN DOING INTERVIEWS WITH THE SUSPECT’S NEIGHBOR TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. NO ONE JUST DRIVES DOWN THE 1 01, GETS OFF THE FREEWAY AND DECIDES I’M GOING TO GO THERE AND START SHOOTING PEOPLE. IS THAT WHAT YOU FEEL?>>ABSOLUTELY. IT IS VERY, VERY WELL KNOWN SPOT FOR KIDS THAT ARE NOT QUITE 21, THAT WANT TO GO OUT AND HAVE A FUN NIGHT WITHOUT GETTING DRINKING AT A BAR BAR. AND IT IS VERY POPULAR IN VENTURA COUNTY FOR — THEY HAVE CARAVANS OF FRESHMEN THAT COME HERE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS.>>THIS WAS WEDNESDAY NIGHT. >>YEAH. THEY HAVE BUSES ON THE NEWS. THEY HAVE BUSES, IT IS PLANNED EVERY WEDNESDAY, THEY, LIKE, HAVE A VAN, YEAH.>>WHAT IS TOO MUCH? WHEN IS IT TOO MUCH?>>THEY GOT IT SEE THE TRUTH. THEY GOT TO SEE IT. IT IS HARD. WE CAN’T HIDE IT FROM THEM. WE GOT TO KEEP HER SAFE. SHE’S GOT TO KNOW THAT CRAZY PEOPLE CAN JUST WALK INTO A SCHOOL AND WALK INTO A NIGHTCLUB AND WALK INTO WHEREVER THEY WANT, THEY GO WHERE IS IT GOING TO STOP? IT IS UP TO US TO DO IT. IT IS UP TO EVERY PARENT, IT IS WATCHING TELEVISION RIGHT NOW. ALL THE NEXT GENERATION OF KIDS, THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE FEAR OF MASS SHOOTING EVENT. IT HAS TO STOP. IT HAS TO STOP NOW.>>SARAH, THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING WITH US. YOU GET A SENSE OF THE ANGER AND FRUSTRATION THAT IS JUST UNDER THE SURFACE OF SO MANY PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY. THIS HAPPENED TO THEM. THEY MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INSIDE BORDERLINE, BUT THIS HAPPENED TO THEM. THEY HURT. WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TALKING TO PEOPLE AND BRING YOU UPDATES THROUGHOUT THE DAY. I CAN TELL YOU, I MENTIONED, I WANT TO REITERATE THIS, THERE WERE SIX OFF DUTY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS INSIDE OF THE CLUB AT THE TIME. THEY WERE OFF DUTY, THREE FROM LAPD, THREE FROM OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE SHERIFF MENTIONED HOW ONE PARENT WALKED UP TO HIM AND TOLD HIM THANK YOU, THEY STOOD IN FRONT OF MY CHILD. THESE PARENTS ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE SURVIVORS THAT THEY’RE ALIVE. I’M TONI GUINYARD, REPORTING LIVE. >>SO MANY WISE WORDS FROM AN 11-YEAR-OLD AND ALSO SAD THAT AN 11-YEAR-OLD HAS TO GROW UP IN A TIME WHERE SHOOTINGS LIKE THIS ARE A REALITY. BUT THAT REALITY ALSO MAY HAVE SAVED LIVES BECAUSE SOME OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE BAR AT THE TIME IN BORDERLINE KNEW, YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO GET OUT. THIS IS SERIOUS. WE’RE ABLE TO BREAK WINDOWS AND GET OUT. >>SHE HAD THE AWARENESS TO SAY, WHAT WAS THE POINT. THAT’S WHAT INVESTIGATORS ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT NOW. THEY’RE AT THE SCENE OF THE SHOOTER’S HOME. AND THEY’RE TRYING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE MOTIVE MIGHT HAVE BEEN.>>WE WANT TO KNOW THAT. IT IS 8:44 NOW. YOU’RE WATCHING CONTINUOUS BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE ON NBC 4 OF THIS SHOOTING THAT HAS HAPPENED AT THE BORDERLINE BAR IN THOUSAND OAKS. HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW. VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT SAYS 13 PEOPLE ARE DEAD. THERE ARE 22 MORE HURT THAT ARE INEATHTNOW. THIS IS AFTER THIS MASS SHOOTING HAPPENED INSIDE THE BORDERLINE BAR AND GRILL, VERY POPULAR PLACE IN THOUSAND OAKS. THAT 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY BUS PEOPLE IN,EN IT IT IS AN EVENT, COLLEGE STUDENT GOES TO THIS, IT IS A NICE PLACE WHERE YOU CAN GO AND LISTEN TO MUSIC. THIS SHOULD BE A FUN NIGHT, A SAFE NIGHT FOR EVERYONE. >>AMONG THE DEAD, RON HELUS WHO CONFRONTED THE GUNMAN. THE FIRST ONE TO RESPOND TO BORDERLINE AND WHEN HE WENT IN, HE WAS SHOT AND PULLED OUT, TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL AND HE LATER DIED. WE NOW KNOW MORE ABOUT THE 28-YEAR-OLD GUNMAN NOW. IAN LONG LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER IN NEWBURY PARK. WE LEARNED HE WENT TO NEWBURY PARK HIGH SCHOOL, TEN MINUTES AWAY FROM THE BAR IN THOUSAND OAKS. THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF SAID HE WAS ARMED WITH A GLOCK 45 CALIBER HANDGUN WITH AN EXTENDED MAGAZINE. BORDERLINE BAR WAS HOLDING A COLLEGE COUNTRY EVENT NIGHT. >>IT IS A PLACE IF YOU’RE UNDER 21, YOU CAN GO, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DRINK, IT IS NICE, FUN. IT IS A TRADITION. IT IS WELL KNOWN. STAPLE IN THE COMMUNITY. AND THERE WERE SEVERAL HUNDRED PEOPLE INSIDE THAT BAR DURING THE SHOOTING. SO IT WAS PACKED. THEY ALSO SET UP A FAMILY REUNIFICATION CENTER AT THE THOUSAND OAKS TEEN CENTER. THAT IS LOCATED AT 1375 EAST JANES ROAD. WE UNDERSTAND NOW THE FAMILIES ARE THERE, THERE ARE ABOUT 60 PEOPLE INSIDE, THEY ARE WAITING FOR NEWS, THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS. . THEY RESPONDED TO HIS HOUSE.>>THEN THINGS SEEMED TO ESCALATE IN APRIL WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THAT LONG WAS ACTING IRATE, SCARY ENOUGH TO SOME NEIGHBORS WHERE THEY CALLED FOR HELP AND POLICE RESPONDED. WE FIND NBC 4’S JONATHAN GONZALEZ OUTSIDE OF LONG’S HOME IN NEWBURY PARK. THERE HAS BEEN SOME DEBATE WHETHER IT IS NEWBURY PARK OR THOUSAND OAKS. THE SHERIFF TELLING US IT IS NEWBURY PARK. >>YEAH. ONE SHERIFF DEPUTY HERE TELLING US THAT IT IS PART OF THOUSAND OAKS. THAT MIGHT CLEAR THINGS UP ACCORDING TO THE SHERIFF DEPUTIES WE SPOKE WITH HERE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE THIS MORNING. THEY’RE STILL OUTSIDE OF THIS HOUSE RIGHT NOW. FBI JOINING THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT HERE AND OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE, I BELIEVE THEY HAVE ENTERED THE HOUSE AT THIS POINT. AND REALLY BEGAN THEIR SEARCH, LOOKING FOR ANY RED FLAGS, ANY KIND OF INFORMATION, ANY EVIDENCE THAT WOULD LEAD THEM WITH HIGH HOPES OF TELLING US WHY HE DID WHAT HE DID. THE SHOOTER TAKING OUT — CARRYING OUT THAT SHOOTING LAST NIGHT. ALSO AT THE VERY LEAST, WERE THERE SIGNS THAT LED UP TO THIS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE INCIDENT IN APRIL. WE SPOKE WITH THE MAN WHO LIVED NEXT DOOR TO IAN LONG AND HIS MOTHER WHERE THEY LIVE IN THIS HOUSE. HE’S THE ONE WHO TOLD US THAT HE’S — HE CALLED 911 HIMSELF IN APRIL. THEY WERE CONCERNED LONG WAS GOING TO INJURE HIMSELF. HE FELT THE NEED TO CALL 9111. IT APPEARS NOTHING ELSE CAME OF THAT INCIDENT. COULD HAVE BEEN A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE, BUT IT DOESN’T APPEAR THE POLICE FOLLOWED UP, THAT’S PART OF THE INVESTIGATION. MULTIPLE NEIGHBOR RECALL THAT INCIDENT. IT IS A QUIET STREET HERE. MANY PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP TO THIS HORRIFIC NEWS AND LOOKED OUTSIDE AND THEY SAID WHAT DO YOU MEAN FOWLER AVENUE? I LIVE ON FOWLER AVENUE. THEY CHATTED WITH ME FOR THE LAST FIVE OR TEN MINUTES OR SO, A FATHER AND SON AND THE FATHER TELLING ME AND SON SAYING THE SON MET HIS GIRLFRIEND AT BORDERLINE. AND THEY’RE STILL TOGETHER AND IT IS A SPECIAL PLACE FOR THEM. GOES TO SHOW YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE POPULARITY OF THIS BAR, A BAR DOESN’T DESCRIBE THIS WELL ENOUGH. IT IS PART OF A VENUE THEY CAN GO AND DANCE AND WATCH SHOWS AND YOU TALKED ABOUT THE MULTIPLE BANDS AND PERFORMERS OVER THE YEARS THAT HAVE BEEN THERE AND, YOU KNOW, IT WAS ACCESSIBLE, A SPECIAL PLACE IN THIS COMMUNITY, EVERYONE THAT WE TALKED TO, THE SURVIVORS KEPT SAYING IT WAS LIKE FAMILY FOR THEM. THEY MAY NOT KNOW THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE, THEY SEE EVERY WEEK, WHEN THEY GO TO WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY OR FRIDAY, WHATEVER DAY IT MAY BE. BUT THEY KNOW THE FACES. AND THEY KNOW THEM WELL, AND THEY MINGLE AND TALK AND THAT’S WHY THEY FEEL LIKE THEY’RE MORE THAN JUST FRIENDS, THEY’RE LIKE FAMILY. AND, YOU KNOW, WHEN I HAVE BEEN GETTING TEXT MESSAGES MYSELF, CONTINUOUSLY ALL MORNING FROM FRIENDS AND I GREW UP IN THE VALLEY AND WE USED TO COME UP HERE BECAUSE OF HOW SPECIAL THIS PLACE WAS. IT IS 18 AND OVER. IT IS MORE ACCESSIBLE TO MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS IF YOU HANG OUT WITH A GROUP, IT WAS A NICE PLACE TO GO, TO GO AND JUST HAVE FUN. IT WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE THERE. AND TO THINK THIS COULD HAPPEN THERE, THAT’S WHY EVERYONE IS STUNNED TODAY. THE INVESTIGATE HAPPENING INSIDE THE HOME, FBI VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFFS HOPING TO FIND SOMETHING INSIDE OF THAT HOUSE. I BELIEVE WE’RE SHOWING Y NEW VIDEO OF THE RAID. AND I’M NOT SURE — I BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING HERE AT THE HOME. AND, AGAIN, WERE THERE ANY SIGNS, ANY LETTERS, ANY EVIDENCE, ANY WEAPONS, ANYTHING THAT COULD BE — COULD HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND BY THE SHOOTER TO INDICATE THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN? OR THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED? THE MOTHER, SHE IS OBVIOUSLY TALKING WITH INVESTIGATORS, WE DO NOT BELIEVE SHE’S HERE AT THIS TIME. THE OTHER THING INVESTIGATORS ARE DOING IS GOING HOUSE TO HOUSE, CANVASSING THE NEIGHBORHOOD, KNOCKING ON DOORS EARLY THIS MORNING, TRYING TO TALK TO NEIGHBORS TO GET ANY KIND OF PERSPECTIVE ABOUT WHAT THE SHOOTER WAS LIKE IN HIS FINAL DAYS AND HIS FINAL MONTHS AND, YOU KNOW, THEY WOKE UP TO THE HORRIFIC NEWS THAT THIS HAPPENED IN THEIR COMMUNITY, JUST LIKE THE REST OF ALL OF US. AND THEN THEY HAD TO FIND OUT THAT THE SHOOTER LIVED ACROSS THE STREET OR NEXT DOOR OR VICE VERSA. SO IT IS JUST A STUNNING SCENE HERE, THIS INVESTIGATION REALLY GETTING UNDER WAY. IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME. FBI AGENTS FLYING IN FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ATF AGENTS AS WELL. THIS IS GOING TO BE A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AS THEY TRY TO GET THE TO BOTTOM OF THE QUESTION OF WHY DID HE DO IT AND COULD THIS HAVE BEEN PREVENTED, DID ANYBODY KNOW ABOUT THIS PRIOR TO THIS SHOOTING? GUYS?>>JONATHAN, THANK YOU. SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE THAT QUESTION OF WHO THIS MAN WAS AND WHY DID HE DO THIS. ULTIMATELY THE FOCUS IS GOING TO BE ON THE VICTIMS AND THE HEROISM. WE SAW SERGEANT RON HELUS GIVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, HE DIED WHILE RESPONDING TO A CALL OF SHOTS BEING FIRED. HE WENT TO BORDERLINE BAR & GRILL, FIRST ONE IN THE DOOR AND ENCOUNTERED GUNFIRE AND POLICE BELIEVE HE MAY HAVE SAVED MANY PEOPLE’S LIVES BY EXCHANGING FIRE OR ENGAGING WITH THE SUSPECT, THE GUNMAN AT THAT TIME. >>ABSOLUTELY. I THINK IT IS WITHOUT QUESTION THAT HE IS DEFINITELY A HERO. WE TALK ABOUT THE OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT, WE’RE GETTING TWEETS NOW FROM THE L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES, EN ROUTE, PARTNERS FROM ACROSS THE AREA, GETTING READY TO STAND WITH THEIR FELLOW BRETHREN AND TO PAY HONOR AND RESPECT TO THE OFFICER WHO HAS FALLEN. JOHN CADIZ KLEMACK IS LIVE WHERE THE SERGEANT PASSED AWAY. WE’RE GEARING UP FOR WHAT IS GOING TO BE QUITE A PROCESSION IN HONOR OF THIS MAN.>>Reporter: AND I DON’T THINK WE CAN — I DON’T THINK THERE IS ANY HARM IN REPEATING HIS STORY AND CALLING HIM A HERO. THAT’S WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING TODAY AS TO WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT. RIGHT NOW, THEY’RE STARTING TO SET UP FOR THIS PROCESSION, SUPPOSED TO START AT 10:00. VENTURA COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT SET UP ONE OF THEIR TRUCKS WITH A LADDER, THAT’S JUST ONE SIDE OF WHAT WILL EVENTUALLY BE A GIANT AMERICAN FLAG THAT WILL BE HANGING HERE. WE NOTICED SOME L.A. COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES ARRIVING AS WELL. WE SAW SOME OFFICERS FROM — IT LOOKS LIKE CITY OF OXNARD, WE SAW POMONA ARRIVE HERE AS WELL, EVERYONE GETTING READY FOR THE PROCESSION OF THE BODY OF SERGEANT RON WHO IS GOING TO BE LEAVING ABOUT 10:00 THIS MORNING AND MAKING THE WAY TO THE VENTURA COUNTY MEDICAL CENTER. I WANT TO SHOW YOU A MAP. WE SEE WHERE THE ROAD CLOSURES ARE GOING TO BE. ROLLING ROAD CLOSURES, LEAVING FROM THE HOSPITAL HERE, AND THEN HEADING UP NORTH ON THE 101, GETTING OFF THE MAIN STREET EXIT, THEN TAKE MILLS ROAD, THAT’S GOING TO TAKE THEM UP TO THE HOSPITAL, AND AS THEY MAKE THEIR WAY THROUGH THERE, IT IS GOING TO BE ABOUT A 30 MINUTE RIDE, BUT COULD TAKE A LITTLE BIT LONGER, YOU CONSIDER ALL THE VEHICLES THAT ARE GOING TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS, AS THEY DO THAT, ROAD CLOSURES, MAKING THEIR WAY THROUGH THERE. IT WILL IMPACT TRAFFIC A BIT. WE’RE ALSO EXPECTING TO SEE SOME OF THE RESIDENTS OF VENTURA COUNTY COMING OUT TO OFFER THEIR SUPPORT TO BE HERE. WE NOTICED ONE MAN, DON’T KNOW IN WE CAN COME BACK LIVE REAL QUICK, THE FIRST AMERICAN FLAG TO BE HERE, TO WITNESS WHAT IS EXPECTED TO BE A MOVING PROCESSIONAL. I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT ONE OF THE DEPUTIES TOLD US THIS MORNING AS HE WAS EXPLAINING HOW THIS WAS ALL GOING TO WORK. HE WAS ALSO TALKING ABOUT WHAT THEY HOPE AS A DEPARTMENT, WHAT THEY HOPE PEOPLE SEE FROM THIS PROCESSION. TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.>>LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WHERE THERE IS MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE 24 HOURS A DAY, FIREMEN AND SHERIFF DEPUTIES AND POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARE OUT THERE WHEN YOU SLEEP THAT ARE THERE TO PROTECT YOU. AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS COMMUNITY. THOUSAND OAKS IS A GREAT CITY. COUNTY OF VENTURA IS A GREAT COUNTY. AND RON EXEMPLIFIES THAT TODAY. DOESN’T SURPRISE ME ONE BIT TO HEAR HE WAS THE FIRST TO GO IN AND ONE OF THE PEOPLE TO GET OUT THERE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.>>Reporter: SO BACK LIVE, WASN’TI WANTED TO SHOW YOU THE DEPUTIES GETTING READY HERE, THE DIFFERENT POLICE DEPARTMENTS THAT HAVE ARRIVED HERE, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT THAT EXTENDED ITS LADDER ON ONE SIDE, THE ENGINE ON THE OTHER SIDE JUST ARRIVED. THEY’LL EXTEND THE LADDER TO THE OTHER SIDE AND YOU’LL SEE THAT GIANT AMERICAN FLAG DRAPED DOWN AND THE BODY OF THE SERGEANT WILL MAKE ITS WAY THROUGH HERE AND ON ITS WAY TO THE VENTURA COUNTY MEDICAL CENTER. THAT’S EXPECTED TO BEGIN AT 10:00 THIS MORNING. BACK TO YOU.>>YOU’VE BEEN OUT THERE ALL NIGHT LONG. INTO THE MORNING. NOT JUST LAW ENFORCEMENT, YOU HAD TO ENCOUNTER WITH A FAMILY MEMBER WHO IS LOOKING FOR A LOVED ONE, CAN YOU GO OVER THAT SITUATION AGAIN? THAT’S ANOTHER NEWS CORRESPONDENT YOU WERE TALKING TO, FORMER NEWS COULDN’T.>>RIGHT. FORMER NEWS CORRESPONDENT. HIS NIECE THERE, THEY’RE LOOKING FOR HER. I CHECKED IN WITH HIS WIFE. IT IS ADAM HOUSLEY, USED TO WORK FOR FOX NEWS, I CHECKED IN WITH HIS WIFE AND THEY STILL HAVEN’T HEARD, THEY’RE STILL HOLDING OUT HOPE, POSTING PICTURES OF THEIR NIECE, HOPING THAT SOMEBODY PERHAPS SPOTTED HER AT ONE OF THE HOSPITALS, AREA HOSPITALS. THERE ARE DIFFERENT HOSPITALS THAT THE VICTIMS WENT TO, THOSE INVOLVED IN THIS. WE DON’T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOWED UP HERE AT LOS ROBLES, THE HOSPITAL HASN’T GIVEN US MUCH INFORMATION. THEY’RE HOPING AND PRAYING THAT THEY’RE GOING TO FIND THEIR NIECE ALIVE. THEY HAVE NOT HEARD JUST YET THE LATEST THAT THEY HAD TOLD US WAS THAT THEY DID PING HER CELL PHONE IT WAS STILL THERE AT THE BORDERLINE, THEY’RE WAITING TO SEE IF PERHAPS THE CONFIRMATION EVEN, THE SAD CONFIRMATION, IF THAT IS WHAT IT IS GOING TO BE, WAITING TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. WITHIN LAST FIVE MINUTES OR SO, THEY’RE POSTING MESSAGES ASKING FOR HELP AND TRYING TO FIND OUT WHERE SHE’S AT. >>I HEARD THEY PINGED THE CELL PHONE AND SHE WAS ON THE DANCE FLOOR AT THE TIME THIS HAPPENED. OUR HEARTS ARE WITH THEM. WE HOPE THEY HEAR SOME NEWS VERY QUICKLY, JOHN, THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE’LL BE GETTING BACK TO YOU AS THE PROCESSION STARTS AND THROUGHOUT THE MORNING. WE GET EVERY INDICATION THAT IT IS GOING TO BE A HUGE PROCESSION AND A LOT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM THE COMMUNITY ARE GOING TO SHOW UP. >>WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE FAMILIES, JOHN JUST MENTIONED, AUNT AND UNCLE LOOKING FOR A NIECE, THERE IS STILL 20 TO 25 PEOPLE, MAYBE MORE, TAKEN TO HOSPITALS WITH INJURIES. THE INJURIES, ACCORDING TO THE SHERIFF, ALL CONSIDERED RELATIVELY MINOR COMPARED TO SOME OF THE OTHER INJURIES THAT WERE FATAL. PEOPLE WHO ARE TRAMPLED AS THEY WERE TRYING TO ESCAPE, SOME OF THEM BREAKING OUT THE GLASS OF THE BAR WITH BARSTOOLS AND CLIMBING OUT AND GETTING LEGS AND ARMS CUT UP AND SCRATCHED UP FROM THAT BROKEN GLASS. AT THAT POINT, IT WAS ABOUT SURVIVAL AND INSTINCTS.>>THERE WAS NO WAY TO GET OUT BECAUSE BASICALLY THERE WERE SMOKE BOMBS GOING OFF, THE FRONT DOOR WAS BLOCKED, THAT’S WHERE THE GUNMAN CAME IN. SO THEY HAD TO FIND SOME WAY TO ESCAPE. AND YOU GO BACK TO THAT 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO WAS TALKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, IT IS SAD THAT THIS HAS TO HAPPEN AND SHE’S GROWING UP IN IN REALITY, BUT THAT PROBABLY SAVED LIVES, THE FACT THAT THEY KNEW IMMEDIATELY, YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO GET OUT, WE NEED TO FIND A WAY OUT. ALWAYS THINKING THAT WHEN YOU’RE OUT NOW. >>WE WERE TALKING TO A SURVIVOR, HE WAS IN THE BAR AT THE TIME, MOORPARK COLLEGE STUDENT, HE WAS JUST HANGING OUT WITH HIS FRIENDS, HE’S FAMILIAR WITH FIREARMS, SO HE SAID HE RECOGNIZED THAT SOUND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY. AND HE SAW THAT THE GUNMAN POINT BLANK SHOT ONE OR MORE PEOPLE, AND THEN TURNED THE GUN AT HIM AND POINTED THE GUN AT HIM AND THAT’S WHEN HE JUST DOVE FOR IT. AND HE JUST WAITED. AND HE WAITED FOR HIS MOMENT, WAITED FOR THAT MOMENT, THAT ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE AND ONCE THE GUNMAN WAS HE BELIEVES WAS TRYING TO RELOAD, HE MADE A RUN FOR IT THROUGH THE KITCHEN AND RAN OUT AS SOON AS HE COULD. >>THAT, AGAIN, SAVING HIS LIFE. WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR WATCHING RIGHT NOW. WE’RE COMING UP ON 9:00. YOU’RE WATCHING CONTINUOUS BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE HERE ON NBC 4 OF THIS HORRIFIC SHOOTING AT THE FAMOUS BORDERLINE BAR IN THOUSAND OAKS. SO MANY PEOPLE KNOW THIS PLACE, THOUGHT OF IT AS A SAFE, FUN PLACE FOR MANY YOUNG PEOPLE TO GO. IT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT THERE.>>COLLEGE NIGHT. STUDENTS FROM PEPPERDINE AND CAL LUTHERAN, MOORPARK COLLEGE.>>CHANNEL ISLANDS.>>CHANNEL ISLANDS. WE KNOW THE VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT SAYS 13 PEOPLE DIED AND AT LEAST 20 TO 25 HURT AFTER THE MASS SHOOTING INSIDE THE BAR AND GRILL IN THOUSAND OAKS. IT IS A VENUE. THEY HAVE A WHOLE BUNCH OF ACTIVITIES THERE. IT WAS COLLEGE NIGHT LAST NIGHT. AN ESTIMATED 150 TO 200 PEOPLE INSIDE AT THE TIME. >>JUST LIKE LAS VEGAS, IT IS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE GO, THEY WANT TO BE HAPPY, THEY’LL LISTENTO POSITIVE MUSIC, HAVING FUN WITH FRIENDS. WE HEARD THAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. NOBODY EXPECTED THIS TO HAPPEN. AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE SHOOTING BREAKS OUT AND WE’RE SEEING IMAGES LIKE THIS, PEOPLE JUST HEART BROKEN, LOVED ONES SEARCHING FOR FAMILY MEMBERS NOW. AND MANY JUST WAITING TOR THGIC NEWS.

HE AND HIS WIFE WOULD CHECK IN SEVERAL TIMES DURING HIS SHIFT. HE TOLD HIS WIFE HE HAD TO GO. HE HAD TO RESPOND TO A CALL. THAT’S WHEN HE WENT TO THE BORDERLINE BAR THE FIRST ONE IN RUNNING TOWARD THE GUNSHOT. A CHP OFFICER WAS THERE RESPONDING TO SHOTS FIRED WHERE HE LATER SUCCUMBED FROM HIS INJURIES.>>HEROES, BOTH OF THEM. I AM SURE THERE WILL BE MANY MORE HEROES HAILED AS HEROES FOR HAILING TO SAVE PEOPLE INSIDE. IT’S THAT MOMENT WHEN EVERYONE COMES TOGETHER. NOW WE ARE WAITING FOR THAT PROCESSION ONE HOUR FROM NOW IS WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT. THEY WILL MOVE THE OFFICER’S BODY FROM THE HOSPITAL TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S. IT’S ABOUT A 25-MILE JOURNEY.
