THOU­SAND OAKS, CALIF.

An au­topsy de­ter­mined that the gun­man who killed 12 peo­ple at a South­ern Cal­i­for­nia bar died from a self-in­flicted gun­shot, po­lice said Satur­day.

Ian David Long, a 28year-old ex-Ma­rine ma­chine-gun­ner, fa­tally shot 11 peo­ple at the Border­line Bar and Grill in Thou­sand Oaks and a po­lice of­fi­cer who re­sponded just be­fore mid­night Wed­nes­day. The of­fi­cer ex­changed gun­fire with Long, who was found dead at the scene.

Ven­tura County Sher­iff Bill Ayub said an au­topsy de­ter­mined Long fa­tally shot him­self. Au­thor­i­ties have yet to de­ter­mine a mo­tive and are ex­plor­ing all pos­si­bil­i­ties. Among them is whether Long be­lieved a for­mer girl­friend might have been at the bar.
