She spoke after learning that her 27 year-old Navy veteran son Telemachus was one of 12 people killed by ex-Marine Ian Long, 28, at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday night.

Investigators reportedly discovered the messages on his profile several hours after the shooting and contacted Instagram to delete the page. "We're sending you our best strength we can out in California".

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said that deputies found that Long was "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally" and called a mental health specialist, who concluded that Long couldn't be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation.

People look on from an overpass as a motorcade with the body of Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt Ron Helus passes by.

Long, a former machine gunner who served in Afghanistan, opened fire with a handgun in the attack, then apparently killed himself as scores of police officers closed in.

Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF), in coordination with City of Thousand Oaks, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Amgen Foundation, California Community Foundation, and others, has set up a specific fund to serve this objective.

"We probably pushed 30 or 35 people through that window", he said. Some say it's too early or too disrespectful to the families of the victims.

"They ran out of the back doors, they broke windows". It also came less than two weeks after a gunman massacred 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Julie Hanson, who lives next door to the Longs' ranch-style home, described him as "odd" and "disrespectful" well before he left home a decade ago, got married and enlisted in the Marines. "There's blood everywhere and the suspect is included in that", Sheriff Dean said.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price", he said.

The Borderline, which includes a large dance hall along with several smaller areas for eating and drinking, was holding its regular "College Country Nights" Wednesday night when the attack took place. And this maniac came in and started shooting at people.

While the horror washes over all of us, many from around the region and around the country are leaping into action to support the victims, families, law enforcement community and organizations providing first and second line support.

In the Facebook posting, the source confirms the writer said, "I hope they call me insane. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? He really liked it", said one woman who was friends with him for five years.

"I tried to get as many people to cover as I could", Knapp said.

"He gave his all and tonight as I told his wife he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

In recent years, right after a mass shooting happens in the United States, some politicians have said it's not the appropriate time to discuss gun control.

'He reloaded and then just kept on popping them off, ' said Tim, John's stepdad.

"I'm going in", Helus said, according to the radio calls. Having survived last year's massacre in Las Vegas, he knew only too well what gunfire sounds like, even amid loud music.
