Dead After California Shooting At Popular Nightspot, Police Say

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California Thousand Oaks shooting: Man armed with handgun and smoke grenades opens fire at California bar
Jeannette Daniel | 08 November, 2018, 22:24

Police found the shooter dead inside, possibly from a self-inflicted wound.

His handgun was created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber - but the extended magazine, which is illegal in California, held more bullets, Dean said.

"We believe that's the only weapon that was used, was that handgun", Dean said.

Sheriff Geoff Dean said police had responded to a minor disturbance. "We have no idea what the motive was at this point". The suspect was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, having served from 2008 to 2013.

Investigators believe Long arrived Wednesday night at the bar in a vehicle, shot a security guard who was standing outside, and then stepped inside.

Witnesses at the Borderline Bar & Grill reported that a black-clad shooter hurled smoke bombs into the restaurant as he let loose a fusillade of shots. Although the cops called in a mental health specialist to assess Ian, they ultimately decided not to have him committed involuntarily.

"It's a horrific scene in there", he said.

Helus, a 29-year veteran of the force, leaves behind a wife and son, according to Dean.

"They knew they had to take action, and they went in and did what they had to do", Dean said.

Dean said he has no doubt Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer who also was the first to respond "saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect".

Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar.

"Ron ... gave his all and tonight, he died a hero because he went in to save lives", Dean said. His last words to her were "Hey I gotta go handle a call". I hear chairs being thrown out the window.

"With over 2,500 square feet of wide open dance floor, Borderline has provided a haven for country line dancing folks of all ages equipped with pool tables", the website says.

She ran toward the nearest exit but tripped, and people kept running on top of her in a rush to escape.

No other information was immediately available. "Pop, pop, pop. There was probably three or four, I hit the ground", John Hedge, at the bar with his stepfather, told CNN affiliate KABC. "There are a few people we can't get a hold of, but in these situations people usually turn off their phones to be safe so I'm not gonna get too anxious. Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot".

Madeleine Carr, news editor at student newspaper the Pepperdine Graphic, told CNN on the phone, that she was aware of freshman students who had planned outings.

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in toilets and the attic of the bar.

"It was just aimless shooting in any direction, and he pointed and just started shooting at the crowd that I was in", Spady said. People were trying to get out the window....

A neighbor, Tom Hanson, told local television station KTLA that he and other neighbors knew Long "had issues". Dean told reporters that there was no indication the suspect was targeting bar employees.

"I mind my own business and they did theirs too", he said in a brief telephone interview.

Cody was "the big brother that my kids need", the grieving father said.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", Sheriff's Sergeant Eric Buschow said.

Jason said Cody will leave behind a legacy of love, and laughter.

Thousand Oaks is a suburb of Los Angeles, located about 40 miles northwest of downtown.

"Thousand Oaks is a very safe community", Kuredjian said. "We're proud of that", Fox said.
