Live Updates of Scene at Aftermath of Borderline Bar Shooting in Thousand Oaks

[dropcap size=big]P[/dropcap]arents and relatives are speaking to reporters now from Thousand Oaks. Watch live footage here. "First thing I said don't drink and drive," said the father of victim Cody Coffman. "Last thing I said is, 'I love you.'"

"My life has changed now forever," he went on.

Thousand Oaks residents are coming out and lining the route as the sergeant's body is transported, as seen in live helicopter footage. Vehicles and pedestrians are stopping on the 101 South, some leaving their vehicles, as the procession continues toward Ventura.

This is what we know so far on the killer, Ian David Long, a former U.S. Marine. Early reports said he may have had PTSD from his time in the service:

Vigils are planned to honor the victims. The Borderline is a popular hangout for students from nearby Pepperdine and Cal Lutheran universities. Pepperdine said the university knows 16 of its students were inside the bar. Cal Lutheran canceled classes today.

People will gather at Thousand Oaks City Hall, 2100 Thousand Oaks Blvd., at 6 pm.

Wednesday night's shooting is the 304th mass shooting in the United States this year, according to Michael Skolnik.
