Innocent People Killed in Mass Shooting

The suspect, who was armed with a.45-caliber handgun, was found deceased at the Borderline Bar and Grill, the scene of the shooting in the city of Thousand Oaks northwest of downtown Los Angeles. The event was for people 18 and over.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus responded to the scene and was shot after he entered the building.

"They found 11 victims that had been killed", said Dean of the first response unit before detailing that the death of Helus brought the toll to 12, not including the gunman. The CHP officer retreated, secured the perimeter and then pulled Helus out of the line of fire, KCAL reported.

Dean said police had previous run-ins with Long, including a call to his home where he was acting irrationally.

The sergeant, who served with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office for 29 years, has been described as a "hero".

"He went in there to save lives". He is also survived by a son. He was considering retiring within the next year.

A procession to honor Helus is planned for 1 p.m.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office later told NBC Los Angeles that the shooter had been killed.

Borderline Bar & Grill is a western-style facility that hosts theme nights such as country, salsa and swing dancing.

The bar is near several colleges, and is a popular spot for students Wednesday nights.
