Authorities responded to a report of an active shooter at a Thousand Oaks nightclub

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

He and the CHP officer went inside, according to Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean, who held an emotional news conference outside the bar early Thursday morning.

"They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him and cleared him", the sheriff said. "He went in to save other people".

Police identified 28-year-old Ian David Long as the suspect in the shooting at a Thousand Oaks, Calif., bar that left at least 13 dead, including the suspected gunman.

"It was just some lowlife taking lives he shouldn't be taking", he said.

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

Witnesses described a tall man, wearing all black with a hood covering part of his face, entering the bar shortly before midnight.

"I started hearing these big pops". I look up. The security guard. was shot, he was down. "Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot".

"I don't know how to console or what to say to the other people who are going to go through the same thing as I am". "And that's what's really blowing my mind, it's a really safe area".

Everyone wanted to win Serie A, not the other competitions. " It is too easy to go into the market for every problem ". The Eagles are over-reliant on Zaha to get them out of trouble on most occasions, which is never a good thing.

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

"I told his wife he died a hero", Dean said. Hundreds are believed to have been inside at the time of the incident, according to Capt. Garo Kuredjian with the sheriff's office.

It was "college night" at the bar, and many students were there to learn the country two-step. The Western-style bar hosts theme nights such as country, salsa and swing dancing.

The bar was hosting a college country music night and was packed with students and other patrons.

"It was just young people having a great time and this maniac came in and started shooting people for no reason at all".

Sgt. Ron Helus, who'd worked in law enforcement for 29 years, was among the victims at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks after he "went in to save lives". As they escaped through the bar's back door, she heard a second round of shots.

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

President Donald Trump, who has resisted a surge in calls for tougher gun controls since 17 students were shot dead at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida earlier this year, said on Twitter that he had been "fully briefed on the bad shooting in California".
