The former Marine identified as the gunman in a mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks bar that left 13 people dead, including the shooter, was a former student at Cal State Northridge.

Ian David Long, 28 attended the school from 2013-16 and studied athletic training, a spokeswoman for CSUN said. He did not graduate.

“On behalf of California State University, Northridge, our hearts and thoughts are with the victims, survivors, first responders and loved ones affected by the horrific massacre that occurred in Thousand Oaks last night,” CSUN President Dianne Harrison said in a statement.

“… I know that many in the community have been impacted by this terrible tragedy. I ask that faculty and supervisors be supportive and considerate of anyone who has been touched by this tragedy. Also, please know that University Counseling Services has people available at (818) 677-2366 if you or someone you know need assistance or support. As members of the Matador family, I ask that our campus come together and support one another during this troubling time.”

Harrison added that in accordance with an order issued by the White House, U.S. flags at the campus will be flown at half-staff until sunset Saturday.
