(KNX 1070) - Frantic families searched for loved ones early Thursday morning, who may have been inside a Thousand Oaks bar, as people across Southern California and the country came to grips with the news of another shooting.

There will be a vigil tonight at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center in Thousand Oaks. 

Authorities released the name of the suspected gunman, a 28-year-old former Marine Ian David Long. Law enforcement believes he may have killed himself at the Borderline Bar and Grill Wednesday night.

KNX's Margaret Carrero was able to talk to a few families, about 50 to 60 people who have gathered, including Jason Coffman, who was looking for his son, Cody.
