California gunman 'stopped shooting so he could post on Instagram'

California gunman 'stopped shooting so he could post on Instagram'

Neighbours of Ian David Long described the man who shot and killed 12 people at a country music bar as distant in public but combative with his mother inside the suburban Los Angeles home the two shared.

Video from inside the Borderline Bar & Grill shows the panic and confusion during a shooting that killed 12 people and injured a dozen others.

Investigators reportedly discovered the messages on his profile several hours after the shooting and contacted Instagram to delete the page.

Authorities haven't determined a motive.

She said Long was so angry that she feared he would return to kill her and broke down when recalling her reaction to finding out he was behind the mass shooting.

Long opened fire in the Borderline Bar & Grill shortly before midnight on Wednesday, killing 12 and injuring many others. At the White House on Friday, Trump touted his efforts to fund work on post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans and ignored questions about stricter gun control laws.

More recently he was living in a home where neighbours said they could hear frequent, aggressive shouting between Long and his mother, especially over the a year ago. In April, officers responded to a disturbance at Long's home.

The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a veteran sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer inside the door, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

But implementation of the ban was blocked by a lawsuit filed by the California Rifle and Pistol Association, the state branch of the National Rifle Association, or NRA, and five Calfornia residents, media reports said. "I called the police on him that time", he said, "just because I didn't know if he was hurting himself".

Federal Reserve leaves key policy rate unchanged
To help control inflation, it has projected three rate increases in 2019 after an expected fourth hike of the year next month. Fed officials at the September meeting pointed to three increases next year, but the market now is pricing in only two.

Long's neighbor Richard Berge, who takes care of Long's mother's dogs, told Reuters that Long was "raving hell in the house, you know, kicking holes in the walls and stuff". "If he talks, just acknowledge him, don't go into conversation with him, '" Don Macleod said today.

Long joined the Marines at 18 and was married as a 19-year-old in Honolulu in June 2009, according to military and court records. His military service lasted almost five years and was honorably discharged with the rank of corporal in 2013, according to the Pentagon.

During his service, Long's marriage fell apart.

Witnesses said patrons were in a panic as they tried to escape or hide from the shooter.

"We're going to exhaust every investigative means possible", Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Garo Kuredjian told The Ventura County Star.

"Our hearts are broken".

The latest massacre has left many family members of the dead exasperated at the seeming inability to tighten USA gun laws. "We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time".

"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said.

"It was a huge panic, everyone got up, I was trampled, I was kind of left on the floor until some guy came behind me and grabbed me and dragged me out", Teylor Whittler told KABC-TV.
