De Long was a patron at the Regency Lounge, a bar in Simi Valley, when Sorrells reportedly walked in and began shooting. De Long, a 10-year Simi Valley resident who owned a painting contracting business there, died at the scene. His wife said De Long did not know Sorrells or Sanchez.
Sorrells acted in a number of films and TV shows in a career dating to the 1950s.
