President Donald Trump has praised the Law Enforcement who engaged the gunman, thanking them for their bravery in handling the California shooting.
He also gave some details of a number of those that might have died as a result of the senseless California shooting, which happened in a bar full of school students.
President Trump a few hours ago, taking to his social media page, put out these words:
“I have been fully briefed on the terrible shooting in California. Law Enforcement and First Responders, together with the FBI, are on scene. 13 people, at this time, have been reported dead. Likewise, the shooter is dead, along with the first police officer to enter the bar.
Great bravery is shown by police. California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with the first officer to enter shot numerous times. That Sheriff’s Sergeant died in the hospital. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims. Thank you to Law Enforcement.” He said.
The Police earlier in the day identified the man behind the California shooting as 28-year-old Ian David Long a US marine corps veteran. They released this statement describing the man behind the California shooting:
“We’ve had several contacts with Mr. Long over the years, minor events, a traffic collision. He was a victim of a battery at a local bar in 2015. In April of this year, deputies were called to his house for a subject disturbing. They went to the house, they talked to him. He was somewhat irate. Acting a little irrationally.
They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him and cleared him. Didn’t feel he was qualified to be taken under 5150. And he was left at that scene last April,” the sheriff said.”
