THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) -- The Latest on the shooting at a Southern California bar that killed 12 people (all times local):
U.S. Defense Department spokeswoman Jessica Maxwell says the former Marine who killed 12 people at a Southern California bar and grill received an honorable discharge.
The Marine Corps has said 28-year-old Ian David Long was deployed to Afghanistan for seven months, from Nov. 16, 2010, to June 14, 2011.
He was in the Marines from August 2008 until March 2013, serving as a machine gunner and earning the rank of corporal in August 2011.
The Marine Corps says Long earned several awards, including a Combat Action Ribbon and a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal.
He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Third Marine Division in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
Authorities say Long opened fire during college night at a Thousand Oaks country music bar on Wednesday night, killing 12 and sending hundreds fleeing before apparently taking his own life.
California State University, Northridge, says in a statement the gunman in the Thousand Oaks mass shooting was once a student.
The university says 28-year-old Ian David Long last attended the university in 2016. The statement has no further details.
Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean identified Long as the gunman who killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar and Grill late Wednesday. The sheriff says Long also was found dead and is believed to have killed himself.
Long was also a former Marine and had been divorced.
Court records show he married in 2009, separated in 2011 and was divorced in 2013.
"Sister Sister" actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband say their 18-year-old niece was among those killed in the Southern California mass shooting.
The actress and her husband Adam Housley confirmed Thursday that Alaina Housely was killed in the shooting at Borderline Bar & Grill in the city of Thousand Oaks.
They say their "hearts are broken" and say they are "devastated that her life was cut short in this manner."
They called Alaina Housley "an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her."
A suitemate of Housley at Pepperdine University said on Twitter earlier Thursday that Housely was among a group of women who went dancing at the bar and had not returned.
