The U.S. Marine veteran who is accused of shooting and killing 12 people at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, this week is believed to have made a social media post around the time of the attack on November 7.
Telemachus Orfanos was a graduate of Thousand Oaks High School and later joined the Navy, according to his Facebook page.
Alaina Housley - the 18-year-old niece of "Sister, Sister" actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and ex-Fox News correspondent Adam Housley - has also been identified as a victim, as have 22-year-old Cody Coffman and 23-year-old California Lutheran University student Justin Meek. "Our hearts are broken", the couple said in a statement to USA Today.
But Orfanos' mother doesn't want your thoughts and prayers.
Ex-Marine Ian Michael Long, 28, opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California killing 11 people before turning the gun on himself.
Officials says the gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar & Grill at about 11:20 p.m. Wednesday night.
The Borderline Bar is popular with students and was hosting a line-dancing night when the attack happened.
This undated photo provided by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department shows Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, who was killed Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in a deadly shooting at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
The gunman, also found dead, used a handgun fitted with an extended magazine for extra bullets. Thirteen people died, including a sheriff's deputy and the suspected shooter.
Kuredjian said at around 0915 GMT (5pm Singapore time) that the shooter was still confined inside the premises, adding that he did not know if he had been subdued or shot. Some jumped through windows while others hid in restrooms.
"There are a few people we can't get a hold of, but in these situations, people usually turn off their phones to be safe so I'm not gonna get too anxious".
Helus was scheduled to retire in 2019.
"The mental health experts out there cleared him that day", Dean told reporters Thursday, though they were concerned he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of his military service. "He was totally committed".
"He was a hero before and he remains a hero now", said Ventura County Sheriff Union President Scott Peterson, who went to the academy with Helus some 30 years ago.
Sheriff Dean said: "Ron was a hardworking dedicated sheriff sergeant".
A police crisis intervention team and a mental health specialist had talked to him last April following an incident at his home, he said.
