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

He added that Thousand Oaks "is considered one of the safest cities in the country".

"He had ideal form", bar patron Teylor Whittler told Fox News.

The police captain also did not know whether the gunman had been "neutralised" or not calling the situation "fluid".

Authorities so far had no indication of a motive, or of any connection to terrorism.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department said 21 people had been treated for injuries at area hospitals and released. "There's a fence right there so I said, 'Everyone get over the fence as quickly as you can.' And I followed them over".

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Mr Dean, who was set to retire today.

Dean said that the shooter had a handgun and that at this early stage in the investigation he believed he had only one gun.

Whitler said then she heard "Get up, he's coming!" and people trampled on each other to get out.

He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety.

Knapp said he has friends who haven't been accounted for.

'Tonight, Thousand Oaks takes its place with those cities, that in order to move forward must rely on hope, ' Fox said. "He was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally". A mental health crisis team was called at the time and concluded that Long did not need to be taken into custody. He was a machine gunner. The official said the 29-year-old man deployed a smoke device and used a.45-caliber handgun when he opened fire.

People dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence.

Matt Wennerstron, a 20-year-old college student, said the shooter apparently had a 10-15 round magazine in his gun.

When deputies arrived at the scene three minutes after the first 911 call, shots were still being fired, Dean said.

"I looked him in his eyes while he killed my friends", Dallas Knapp wrote on his post.

"It's particularly ironic that after surviving the worst mass shooting in modern history, he went on to be killed in his hometown", his father told the Ventura County Star.

It was the third mass shooting in the United States in under two weeks, six days after the death of two women at a yoga class in Tallahassee, Florida and 12 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, shouting "All Jews must die".
