Shooter Kills 12 in California Bar - Hit & Run


Taylor Von Molt, 21, told CNN that the shooter was wearing what looked like a bandana and a hoodie and was a burly man.

Authorities say they found a handgun at the scene.

Ron Helus was shot dead after confronting a gunman who'd opened fire on innocent revelers during an under 21s student night at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.

Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus was among 12 people killed during a massacre at a nightclub in Thousand Oaks, California.

The Borderline, which opened in the 1980s, calls itself "Ventura County's largest country dance hall and live music venue" with 2,500 square feet of wide-open dance floor, according to its website.

Reflecting on how he would get through his own pain, Jason held on tightly to his father-in-law, Mike Johnston, saying "I love this man". Late Wednesday night, she heard the music stop.

"I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military", he said.

He is survived by his wife and adult son. "Patient. Calm no matter what". On his "about" page, Helus wrote that that he'd been a firearms instructor for more than 25 years, and had previously worked with the basic and advanced SWAT schools.

"He loved spending time with his son", said Buschow. The suspect was later found dead inside the bar.

Kuredjian confirmed at a news conference early Thursday, Nov. 8 that a sheriff's deputy was taken to a hospital suffering from gunshot wounds, but did not provide information on the extent of the victims' injuries.

Cody had just turned 22, and was in the process of talking to recruiters so he could join the Army, Coffman said.

"Cody was the big brother that my kids need", Coffman said. "I have a daughter coming on the 29th of this month that he was so excited to have his first sister, and now she'll never know".

Coffman was in the process of applying for the Armed Forces, Jason said. "He was my fishing buddy all the time, whether he liked it or not that poor boy came with me, fishing on a boat". "That's the kind of stuff I am truly going to miss". "And I hope you're out there and I hope you're OK".

Screaming in fear, patrons rushed for the exits, dived under tables and used barstools to smash second-floor windows and jump to safety as gunfire reverberated through the Borderline Bar & Grill, a hangout popular with students from nearby California Lutheran University.

Prior to heading to the scene, Helus talked to his wife, as he does several times during his shift, Dean said.

Coffman said his family is days away from welcoming a new child. He was hired last summer and mostly worked with kids with developmental disabilities. "Oh heavenly father, just please be with him".

"He was protecting everyone", she said. "He was just an all-around guy". The shooter, apparently firing at random, also died.

"You could tell he really had a heart for what he did", she said, sobbing.
