Thousand Oaks gunman went from Marine vet to mass shooter. Investigators want to know why. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Thousand Oaks gunman went from Marine vet to mass shooter. Investigators want to know why.

Authorities have identified a Facebook post believed to have been made by the shooter around the time of the attack, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the ongoing investigation.

In it, the writer says: "I hope people call me insane... (laughing emojis).. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers'.. or 'keep you in my thoughts'... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..."

When CNN read the post to a friend of Long's, who did not want to be publicly identified, the friend said, "That does not sound like Ian to me at all. I don't know what was going through his head when he wrote this. It must have been terrible."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What medications was Long on or withdrawing from?
