But a mental health specialist who assessed Long after sheriff's deputies responded to a call about his agitated behaviour last spring anxious he might be suffering from PTSD.

Police are now investigating Long, a decorated marine who served in Afghanistan, who killed himself after the shooting.

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

Long made others feel uncomfortable going back to his teens.

Neighbours of Ian David Long described the man who shot and killed 12 people at a country music bar as distant in public but combative with his mother inside the suburban Los Angeles home the two shared.

"I looked him in his eyes while he killed my friends I hope he rots in hell for eternity", he wrote on Instagram. "If he talks, just acknowledge him, don't go into conversation with him, '" Don MacLeod said. In another, he grabbed her rear and midsection after she refused to return a cellphone he said was his.

"I nearly like wanted to see him to kind of like wrap my brain around it because I was like I couldn't believe it this isn't happening", Campbell said. "He was the only athlete that I was scared of".

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents leave Long's house in Newbury Park, Calif., Thursday.

FBI investigators following leads in quest to investigate the gunman's state of mind.

For the former Newbury Park High School track coach this day has been full of emotions - from sadness to guilt. "The fire is literally so close to exploding into an area that is massively populated".

Investigators have not commented on a motive for the rampage or whether mental illness played a role. Long was found dead inside the bar; authorities believe he shot himself.

Neighbours reported hearing frequent loud rows between Long and his mother, one of them so extreme they called police in April. His classmate said he suffered serious post traumatic stress disorder after his tour and sought help from therapists and doctors.

Deputies responded and a mental health specialist who assessed Long anxious he might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder but found no grounds to hospitalize him.

Law enforcement sources tell us Ian Long held a gun in one hand and his phone in the other, posting messages on his Instagram Story during Wednesday night's massacre. "I want gun control", she said.

Those who lived through last year's shooting at the Route 91 festival gathered Friday night in Las Vegas to remember the victims of Wednesday's shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill bar in California.

Kelly, who has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, said that Borderline had become a safe haven for dozens of Vegas survivors and it was common for many of them to hang out there together.

"I don't want prayers. I never thought something like this would happen", said Ms Whittler, who was inside when the shooting started.
