Dead After California Shooting At Popular Nightspot, Police Say

Active shooter multiple victims reported in mass shooting at California bar

Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus "died a hero" after being shot by a gunman who killed 11 others at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. The shooter was found dead inside, authorities said.

In a news briefing Thursday, authorities identified the suspect as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former Marine.

Ventura County sheriff's Capt. Garo Kuredjian said hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at 11:20 p.m., and shots were still being fired when deputies arrived.

The sheriff said Helus told her, "Hey I gotta go handle a call".

Twelve people were killed, including Helus.

Once again, President Donald Trump has ordered flags at half-staff "in a mark of solemn respect".

Deputies were called to Long's house in response to a disturbance in April, 2018 and "felt he might be suffering from PTSD", he said. He ordered flags flown at half-staff in honor of the victims.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has appointed two conservative justices to the court, shifting it to the right. The Republican president was scheduled to go to the court on Thursday for a formal ceremony seating Kavanaugh.


"It's so tragic losing Ron", Dean said. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Long lived with his mother at a house she owns in the nearby town of Newbury Park.

The intervention at the crowded venue late on Wednesday night was the final act of a 29-year career in law enforcement for Sergeant Helus, who was due to retire next year.

Long was "somewhat irate". "We don't know where the other ones are, we don't know if they're OK or not".

Mitchell Hunter says the shooter was wearing a trench coat and shooting a handgun with a long magazine. "Maybe there was a motive for this particular night, but we have no information leading to that at all". "I don't think there's anything more heroic than what he did".

Police said a highway patrol officer and another policeman, Sergeant Ron Helus, entered the bar after hearing gunshots. He died in an area hospital Thursday morning. The sheriff said they have filed a search warrant for the residence.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price, " he said.

At least 12 others, including the killer, were killed during the attack, and 15 others were injured during the incident, which occurred during "College Country" night.

The last words Jason Coffman told his son, Cody Coffman, were "I love you", before he went to Borderline Bar and Grill.

"We knew he was going there, to know he may not come home is another thing", Jason Coffman told the station.

Whittler said during her escape she was trampled on and hit in the head with a barstool that was being thrown at a window by another person trying to get out.

Video accessed by the AP showed law enforcement officers and vehicles speeding to the scene and people running from the bar. One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed.

Some mistook the gunfire for firecrackers when he began shooting, the New York Times reported.
