The venue in the quiet, upscale Thousand Oaks suburb was hosting an event for college students, with several hundred young people in attendance.

By the end of the violent spree, 11 people were dead.

Wednesday night's shooting came less than two weeks after a self-proclaimed anti-Semite was charged with killing 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Authorities have not released numerous victims' names but among those who have been confirmed are three men and one woman. It was country college night, and people swayed to the beat as music blared through the speakers.

Officials said Long purchased the gun used in the shooting shortly after the domestic disturbance in April, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Witness John Hedge told ABC News he was near the front door of the California bar when the shooting began. The photo, dated September 8, appears to have been taken inside the bar.
