THOUSAND OAKS — Thirteen people are confirmed dead after a gunman who has been identified opened fire on a crowd at a country dance bar holding a weekly “college night” Wednesday, sending hundreds fleeing in terror, including some who used barstools to break windows and escape, authorities said.

In a news conference at around 7 a.m., Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean identified the alleged shooter as Ian David Long, 28, who lived in the area, and said Long was armed with a single Glock 21 handgun that had an “extended magazine” that would allow it to hold more than the standard number of 10 bullets.
