Thousand Oaks: Who are the victims?

Howard TerryNov 09, 2018

The CHP officer retreated, secured the perimeter and then pulled Helus out of the line of fire, KCAL reported.

At a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said that Helus died as "a hero".

Reporters with the student paper Pepperdine Graphic of Pepperdine University in Malibu shared harrowing footage and interviews with victims and witnesses outside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks early Thursday, where authorities said 13 people died, including the shooter.

Police said a highway patrol officer and another policeman, Sergeant Ron Helus, entered the bar after hearing gunshots. He gave his all.

"Hey, I got to go handle a call, I love you", Helus told his wife, according to Dean.

There were multiple people injured in the attack as well, but Dean said the exact number was unclear because a number of them had taken themselves to hospitals for treatment.

Asked if he had anything to say about the suspected gunman, who authorities believe killed himself in the massacre, Coffman would only say, "I feel sorry for his parents".

It was the third mass shooting in the United States in under two weeks, six days after the death of two women at a yoga class in Tallahassee, Florida and 12 days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, shouting "All Jews must die".

Mr Dean said the other prior encounters were a traffic accident and an incident when he was the victim of a beating at a bar.

Patrons threw barstools through windows in a desperate attempt to escape a gunman at a country-and-western bar in southern California late Wednesday.

The bar's website says its hosts "College Country Night" every Wednesday.

One officer said it had been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks. The venue, which describes itself as the county's largest country dance hall and live music venue, was hosting a "College Country Night".

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in bathrooms and the attic of the bar. Law enforcement and emergency crews flooded the scene and police urged the public to avoid the area.

He added that Thousand Oaks "is considered one of the safest cities in the country".

Long, armed with a smoke device and a.45-caliber handgun, stormed the Borderline Bar & Grill sometime before midnight, per AP.

Nick Steinwender, a Cal Lutheran student body president, told KTLA-TV he immediately started receiving messages about the shooting, and he and his roommate went to the scene to offer rides back to campus or moral support.

"You just don't expect it to happen in Thousand Oaks".

"We are consistently ranked one of the highest with respect to the lowest crime rate per capita, we're proud of that", Fox said.
