California bar shooting: Ian David Long identified as suspect

First responders are seen outside Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks California

A gunman opened fire during college country night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California on November 7, killing 12 innocent people, including a sheriff's deputy who was expected to retire in just months, officials confirmed.

A man burst into an event hall that was hosting a country music dance night in Thousand Oaks, California, on Wednesday and opened fire, killing 12 people including a law enforcement officer.

Friends are remembering sheriff's sergeant who was killed trying to stop a shooting rampage at a California bar as a "cop's cop" who didn't hesitate to run toward danger. "We can't confirm the shooter is in custody at this point", Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference.

'As I told his wife, he died a hero; he went into save lives, to save other people, ' he said.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean, describing Sgt. Helus, said: 'He went into save lives, to save other people.

Dean said investigators had not found any type of assault rifle within the bar. Others jumped over chairs and broke windows to get out.

Authorities believe Ian David Long eventually turned the gun on himself, but not before the 28-year-old, dressed in all black, terrorized a crowd filled with college students at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

At least 13 people were shot, including a sheriff's deputy, during the incident at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

Shocked bystanders are treated at the scene in Thousand Oaks, California. Dean says Helus was his longtime friend and gym partner and planned to retire soon after 29 years with the force.

Video shot by a survivor shows the moments of terror as a gunman opened fire inside a crowded California bar.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Eric Buchow told the station there were "multiple fatalities" and the gunman was dead inside.

"We have called in our bomb team to go through and a couple of bomb dogs here that are checking the area", Dean said. "I don't know if she is alive", he said.

Reports said there were around a 100 patrons inside the nightclub when the shooting began.

Located around 40 miles west of Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks was recently ranked as one of the country's safest cities.

Cody Coffman had plans to join the Army, his father, Jason, told reporters Thursday.

Additional units, including SWAT personnel arrived on the scene minutes later and found 11 victims and the deceased gunman. "I could still hear gunshots after everyone left", the Times quoted the man as saying.
