Taylor Kolls, the son of KSTP reporter Jay Kolls, served with 29-year-old Ian David Long in the U.S. Marine Corps between 2008 and 2010.
He said he developed a close friendship with the man authorities say killed 12 people at a California bar late Wednesday and sent hundreds fleeing in terror before he apparently killed himself.

Taylor said he often stayed at Long's Thousand Oaks home with Long's mother.
Taylor's father talked to him about Long Thursday.
