Multiple fatalities in shooting at a Californian bar”

The 28-year-old veteran is suspected of killing 11 people at a bar in Thousand Oaks, as well as Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus, the first responder to the fatal attack.

Sgt. Ron Helus had been set to retire in the next year from the Ventura County, California Sheriff's Office when, responding late Wednesday to a call of a shooting, he walked into the Borderline Bar & Grill. The gunman died inside the bar, police said.

The suspect, who has not been identified, was found dead inside the bar, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

The bar was holding its regular "College Country Nights" on Wednesday night when the gunman dressed in black opened fire inside the bar.

Some people who were inside the bar said they had survived the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas past year. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

Kuredjian said it has been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 64 kilometres west of Los Angeles, just across the county line.

Sheriff Dean said the suspect is still unknown and an investigation is ongoing.

"Sgt. Helus will be transported via motorcade from Los Robles Hospital to westbound Janss Road", the department said in a statement. "Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner".

Authorities did not say how the gunman died.

"He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price, " he said. "I don't know if she is alive", he said. People dancing dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence.

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started.

An injured man told local television channel KTLA: "We just dropped to the ground, we heard a lot of screaming".

The bar is also close to several other universities, including California State University Channel Islands in Camarillo, Pepperdine University in Malibu and Moorpark College in Moorpark. "Those are my people and it's just not fair, it's not fair", she said.

He said the gunman had apparently shot himself.

"I tried to get as many people to cover as I could", Knapp said.

Bar patron describes what she saw when shooting broke out in Thousand Oaks.

"It looked like he knew what he was doing", Whitler told KABC-TV. "Sergeant Helus served with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office for 29 years and is survived by his wife and son".
