Suddenly, a man wearing a black trench coat and sunglasses approached the door and shot the security guard at the entrance.

The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler of NY, said lawmakers would start crafting a gun-control bill when the House convenes with a Democratic majority in early January.

The sheriff said the gunman used a Glock 21, a.45-caliber handgun.

Witnesses said that people dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence. They had chairs and threw them out the window, and they were able to take me and my girlfriend out the window and carried us out here.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters Thursday that Long had served in Afghanistan.

People escaped the bar by using chairs to break windows, while others reportedly sheltered inside the venue's toilets.

The dead include a sheriff's deputy who rushed into the bar in response to the shooting.

Sgt. Ron Helus was among the 12 people killed when a gunman opened fire inside the Borderline Bar & Grill.

Nineteen-year-old Cole Knapp was inside Borderline at the time of the shooting. Then she thought it was a part of the song.

"She loved kids. We had a lot of parents show up today to say, 'She made my child feel important and that they mattered", Rev Thornton said.

When the sounds grew louder and closer, people started screaming.

Buschow told CNN of his fallen colleague, "I don't think there's anything more heroic than what he did". "But she was getting trampled", she said.

Australian Tristan Appleby was inside when the unthinkable unfolded.

"Luckily, he didn't come my way", Appleby said. "It's 'what can I do to protect as many of my friends as possible'".

Appleby said with the every shot, the people lying underneath him shivered and squirmed. He kept his eye on the gunman and when he paused to reload, he whispered to others that it was time to dash to the exit. "I don't know how I survived because at any moment, I could have been shot".

Sparks' friends had been in tears throughout the day as they desperately searched for her in the aftermath of the shooting. Shortly afterward, Coffman told her it was time to get out.

"I'm not gonna vilify this kid because he's got parents that are grieving, too", Mark Orfanos said.

The 20-year-old looked over to see a man dressed in black firing on bar employees who worked the front desk. She stopped when she got to a nearby gas station. "I didn't know what to do. I saw him point to the back at the cash register and he just kept firing". God brought us together for a reason and I will hold our memories in my heart forever. He'll always be my hero, and now he's my angel.

Todd Stratton, who was at the bar with two friends who died, said he was in "disbelief" because he's known Long for years. The gunman exchanged gunfire with Helus, fatally wounding him.

The highway patrolman pulled Helus out of the bar to safety, but his injuries were too severe.

A SWAT team from the Ventura County Sherrif's Department, arrived within minutes, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other officers to find the bar strewn with bodies, survivors huddling in terror, and others desperately trying to get out.

He says that Long kept to himself and played baseball when he was younger.

The Borderline Bar shooting left 12 dead, including the police officer who responded to first reports.
