'Multiple injuries' in California bar shooting: Fire department

Howard TerryNov 10, 2018

People gathered outside the Rivalry Roasters coffee shop for a vigil for Sean Adler, Thursday, in Simi Valley, Calif. Adler was killed in Wednesday night's shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Law enforcement sources tell us Ian Long held a gun in one hand and his phone in the other, posting messages on his Instagram Story during Wednesday night's massacre. Then he looked up and saw a man in a black hoodie holding a gun.

'I heard shots and that's not a noise you mistake for anything else, ' said Matt Wennerstrom, who was in the bar at the time of the deadly incident, said. There were at least 50 people that all tried getting up at once and running out the back door. There's a fence right there so I said: "'Everyone get over the fence as quickly as you can.' And I followed them over".

"People that are dangerously mentally ill and have previously had incidences with law enforcement, I think those red flags are appropriate and I think California can continue to lead the nation in terms of advancing prohibitions". "First person there and confronted him to try to save others hiding inside". The city is consistently ranked near the top of the lists of safest places in California. He was found dead in the office of the Borderline, after reportedly having shot himself.

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

"(He) said to her, 'Hey I got to go handle a call.

A SWAT team from the Ventura County Sherrif's Department, arrived within minutes, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other officers to find the bar strewn with bodies, survivors huddling in terror, and others desperately trying to get out. Then they began "shuffling as many people out as possible".

The Borderline Bar is popular with students of California Lutheran University, Pepperdine University and other area schools. "It's 'what can I do to protect as many of my friends as possible'".

According to reports, among those dead is Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus, who was one of the first people on the scene.

Paddock killed 58 people, before turning the gun on himself in the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history.

Investigators said there was no clear motive.

She could often hear him yelling and cursing, but several months ago unusually loud banging and shouting prompted her husband to call authorities. He died at a hospital after being shot numerous times.

He praised the murdered officer, a close friend, as a hero, saying: "He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price".
