The video follows Knapp as he runs from the bar, calling to people to get away from the area.

Upon hearing the gunshots, he immediately grabbed people around him and brought them to the ground for cover.

In the messages that Long posted on social media, he wrote: "It's too bad I won't get to see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth as to why I did it. Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought. f***it, life is boring so why not?" reported ABC.

Nicholas Champion told CBS News that he and "probably 50 or 60 others" inside the Borderline Bar & Grill had also attended the Route 91 Harvest festival in October 2017, where a gunman killed 58 people and wounded almost 500 others in the worst mass shooting in US history.

The mother of Telemachus Orfanos, 27, said her son had died inside Borderline.

She shook with sadness and rage as she gave reporters her message on Thursday, "No more guns".

'I don't want prayers. "He didn't come home last night", said his mother, Susan Orfanos. "Pass gun control so no one else has a child that doesn't come home".

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House yesterday, described gunman Ian David Long as "a very sick puppy" who had "a lot of problems".

Madison Cummings, an eyewitness at the bar, told Xinhua that the shooter had a beard and short black hair, wore all black and held a black handgun.

Key governor races will shape America's future politics
Jim Doyle was in office and Republicans controlled the Assembly with Democrats in charge of the Senate. Republicans now control two-thirds of all legislative chambers and the governor's office in 33 states.

Ventura County Sheriffs spokesperson Geoff Dean told press on Thursday that Long was known to police, as he had previously been involved in a traffic collision, one of several encounters the Sheriffs had with Long.

Sheriff Dean said: "Ron was a hardworking dedicated sheriff sergeant. There is blood everywhere".

"Your Second Amendment rights are under siege but they will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president", Trump said at the National Rifles Association (NRA) annual meeting in the convention center in Dallas.

"The companionship that I had with my son, the companionship that my son had with his brothers", Jason said, breaking into tears as he embraced his father-in-law and kept his arm wrapped around him.

He said that there are at least "six victims including one deputy" who are still inside the bar. "I love you. I'll talk to you later,"' Dean said. "I'm alive and home safe", she said on Facebook.

Terrified patrons scrambled for the exits after the gunman started shooting a pistol in the Borderline Bar and Grill around 11:20 pm on Wednesday before killing himself, they said.

The extended magazine Long allegedly used can not be legally purchased in California under a 2000 law.

"We didn't take it seriously at first. because it sounded like firecrackers and everyone just dropped down to the floor". He was at Borderline in his professional capacity with an organization to help fellow vets with PTSD and other issues readjusting to civilian life, says friend Sara Bergeron.

In April, he was found irate and acting irrationally when they were were called to his home.

Here's what we know of Long so far.
