"It's not moving, that's the problem".

Holden Harrah told CNN the gunman opened fire within seconds.

Speaking to reporters, Mr Coffman sobbed as his worst fears came true. He was told his son didn't make it out. A mental health specialist met with him and didn't feel he needed to be hospitalized. "First thing I said was 'please don't drink and drive.'" Jason's last words to his son were that he loved him.

"It was a huge panic, everyone got up, I was trampled, I was kind of left on the floor until some guy came behind me and grabbed me and dragged me out".

"I can't believe I'm saying this again", Molly Maurer posted on Facebook. "He was totally committed, he gave his all, and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero; he went in to save lives, to save other people". I am so sorry for them. "I am speechless and heartbroken".

Before hearing of his son's death, Mr Coffman had been frantically driving to hospitals around Thousand Oaks in the USA state of California begging for information.

About two dozen parents waited nearby early Thursday morning for news of their children. He told her, "I've got to go handle a call".

The station said one person was seen - apparently lifeless - on the ground outside the bar's entrance. He loved fishing in the Sierra Nevada mountains with his son. I knew it was live. Then he went into the office, where all the cash and stuff is.

Cody was planning to join the army, his father said, having recently celebrated his birthday.

This time, gunfire claimed a Navy veteran who had lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history a year ago.

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.

None of the civilian victims were identified.

Ian David Long began his adult life by enlisting in the Marines and getting married.

It was the nation's deadliest such attack since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago.

President Donald Trump ordered the United States flag at the White House and other government buildings to be flown at half-staff following the shooting, which came just 10 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Police say they recovered a handgun inside the bar and found the suspect dead inside.

A sheriff said 13 people were killed, including a sheriff's sergeant and the gunman, after a shooting inside a crowded Southern California bar late Wednesday.

Police identified the gunman as Ian Long, a 28-year-old former Marine who is one of the 12 dead.

As soon as the first round of bullets rang out at the Borderline Bar and Grill, Matt Wennerstrom sprung into action, grabbing a bar stool and throwing it through a window to free people to safety.

Among the dead is Sergeant Ron Helus, who was reportedly killed while trying to enter the club with Highway Patrol officers responding to the gunfire.
