Update 3: More details have emerged about the shooter, 28-year-old Ian David Long, who opened fire at let off at least 30 shots from a Glock with an extended magazine. Long, a former-marine, was dressed in all black during the shooting and eventually turned the gun on himself after police officers arrived.

Police say they have “had several contacts with Mr. Long over the years for minor offenses.”

He was a victim of assault and battery in a bar in 2015. The police then confirmed that in April of this year, officers were called to Long’s house: “officers went to his house, he was somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally.”

The officers then called out their Crisis Intervention Team, “and mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him, and cleared him, didn’t feel he was qualified to be taken under 5150.”

As a reminder, 5150 refers to the California law code for the temporary, involuntary psychiatric commitment of individuals who present a danger to themselves or others due to signs of mental illness. It has been more generally applied to people who are considered threateningly unstable or “crazy.”
