Another mass murder in the USA. This happens hundreds of times a year in the USA.

According to one news source there were 297 mass murders in the USA after the
Pittsburgh synagogue shooting on October 27th of this year in which 11 people were killed.


The latest mass murder happened last night, November 7th, 2018 in Thousand Oaks, California

--------------

At least 12 people were killed and at least 10 others injured when a gunman burst into a packed Southern California bar, tossing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said.
The lone suspect was found dead inside the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, police said. Authorities are working to determine who he is and what his motive may have been.
Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran who was about to retire, was among the dozen killed overnight, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.
Helus was one of the first on the scene and was struck multiple times when he went through the front door, the sheriff's office said.

The killer has been identified.
----
The killer was identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old former Marine.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said his department had several previous contacts with Long, including a call to his home in April, when deputies found him angry and acting irrationally. The sheriff said a mental health crisis team was called at the time and concluded Long did not need to be taken into custody.
