At least 12 killed at California bar shooting

Authorities responded to a report of an active shooter at a Thousand Oaks nightclub

They found 12 people dead inside, including the gunman, who was discovered in office and had apparently shot himself, the sheriff said.

As his son was leaving the house Wednesday night, Coffman told him not to drink and drive. They called a mental health specialist who assessed Long but concluded he couldn't be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation.

A woman in the background added: "He was kind of a loner".

Friends are remembering the man who was killed trying to stop the shooting rampage as a "cop's cop" who didn't hesitate to run toward danger.

As the entered, Sergeant Helus was struck multiple times with gunfire.

Helus was among the first officers through the door at the Borderline.

"He was just a great guy, a gentle soul", he said. He was found dead inside the club. "Just an awesome investigator".

Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, was speaking his wife on the phone "as he does several times during the shift, and said to her, 'Hey, I got to go handle a call, I love you, '" Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said during a press conference Thursday morning.

Dead brothel owner wins Nevada state assembly seat
According to state law, county officials will now appoint a fellow Republican who also resides in the district to take Hof's seat. Hof ran as a pro-Donald Trump Republican in a district that heavily supported the president in the 2016 election.

Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar.

At 11:55pm, law enforcement reported that a California Highway Patrol officer had engaged a suspect and that a man matching the description was down with three gunshot wounds. "He went in to save lives, to save other people". "In this community, it's very hard for me to comprehend it because I've been here all my life and to think that - I've never experienced it, I've just never experienced it". Eleven people were shot and killed in the incident, and numerous others were wounded.

Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said lawmakers would get to work on legislation including universal background checks when the House of Representatives convenes in January with a Democratic majority.

The US has suffered from mass shootings for decades, but most of the deadliest have occurred in recent years.

The sheriff says he doesn't remember the city having another mass shooting in his time on the force.

"That's a pretty challenging question", Sheriff Dean said.

US President Donald Trump said on Twitter that he has been "fully briefed on the bad shooting".

"I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military", he said. The 22-year-old went to Borderline Bar & Grill every Wednesday to line dance, his dad said.
