Dead, Including Sheriff’s Sergeant and Gunman, in Shooting at Thousand Oaks Bar

Active shooter multiple victims reported in mass shooting at California bar

Authorities have identified the gunman and the handgun he used to kill 12 people at a southern California bar.

A "dedicated" police officer who was one year from retirement died in the California bar massacre while trying to stop the gunman, it emerged today. "I don't know the condition of the victims but my understanding is there are a number (of) wounded included a local deputy ... all of the victims have been transported to hospitals", Fox told CNN on the phone.

Ventura county sheriff Geoff Dean said sheriff's deputies were called to Long's home in Newbury Park, five miles west of Thousand Oaks, in April 2018.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured.

Less than two weeks after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that killed 11, another mass shooting has taken a dozen lives in California.

He said the gunman had apparently shot himself.

The Borderline, which includes a large dance hall along with several smaller areas for eating and drinking, was holding its regular "College Country Nights" Wednesday night when the attack took place.

The sheriff of Ventura County, California is describing what happened late Wednesday night when a gunman killed 12 people at a bar.

"It was chaos, people jumping out of windows, people hopping over gates to get out" Steinwender told KABC-TV.

Police told the Los Angeles Times that at least 30 shots were fired.

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and son and planned to retire in the coming year, said the sheriff, who choked back tears several times as he talked about the sergeant who was also his longtime friend.

"When he heard gunfire, he went in and that's something would expect from Ron", Kuredjian said. "It's still very fluid, and I hope to give you guys updates in terms of both the number and the status of the shooter".

But most agree that there was a shooting and many people fled the bar and grill.

Holden Harrah, who was at the bar, told CNN the gunman walked in and opened fire within seconds. "I don't know if she is alive", he said.

Thousand Oaks is about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles and It's considered one of the safest large cities in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime statistics, USA Today reported.

Dean confirmed the weapon was purchased legally, a.45 caliber Glock 21 handgun.

One college student who said he was a regular at the Borderline told NBC Los Angeles he had at least 10 friends inside.

There was no screaming, she said.

"It's a horrific incident", Dean said."It's part of the horrors that are happening in our country and everywhere, and I think it's impossible to put any logic or any sense to the senseless".
