Long's body was found inside an office adjacent to the bar's entrance.

Dean said the suspect had an extended magazine for his gun, and it was not clear whether he reloaded during the attack.

Dean said police had previous run-ins with Long, including a call to his home where he was acting irrationally.

"I talked to him last night before he headed out the door", Coffman said, fighting through tears. The U.S. Marine Corps released Long's service record, which said he served from 2008 to 2013, and his ranking was a corporal as a machine gunner, ABC News reported.

Long enlisted in the Marines at 18 and was married as a 19-year-old in Honolulu in June 2009, according to military and court records.

A law enforcement officer said the suspect used a.45-caliber handgun, created to hold a magazine of 10 rounds.

"Here are my words: I want gun control", said Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, her voice shaking with grief and rage. Helus died while being treated at an area hospital several hours after he was shot, Dean said.

"It appears he walked up to the scene". I look up-the security guard is dead. 'I know where I'm going when I die, so I wasn't anxious to sacrifice myself'.

A 23-year-old California Lutheran University student has also been identified as another victim.

Officials say the suspect, who has not been identified, was found dead inside.

Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer responded in minutes.

He died at a hospital.
