Sheriff Vet Killed Responding to Calif Shooting - Police Depts Pay Tribute

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

It was a somber day at the Christian seaside university 20 miles south of the Borderline Bar and Grill.

Among the dead was a sheriff's sergeant who charged into the bar to confront the shooter.

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

Anxious family members gathered at a teen center in town to await word on the fate of loved ones who had gone to the club.

Cody's father, Jason, tearfully told reporters about the deep love that he and his son had for one another.

"Only him and I know how much I love, how much I miss him", Coffman said.

The sheriff says he doesn't remember the city having another mass shooting in his time on the force.

It was the nation's deadliest such attack since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school nine months ago.

Kelly has a large tattoo on his left arm memorializing the Las Vegas shooting, which killed 58 people. "Thank you to Law Enforcement", the president said in another tweet. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"There's no indication that he targeted the employees". Long used an extended magazine for the weapon, Dean said.

"We have no idea what the motive was at this point". The U.S. Marine Corps released Long's service record, which said he served from 2008 to 2013, and his ranking was a corporal as a machine gunner, ABC News reported.

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals". "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams ". Abrams and Kemp are both condemning an automated telephone call filled with racist and anti-Semitic statements .


He said first responders arrived just three minutes after the first emergency calls from the venue were made.

Long had been cleared by mental health experts after an incident in his home in April, sheriffs revealed on Thursday morning.

Dean said Long was armed with a single handgun, a.45 caliber Glock 21, which he purchased legally.

"I don't know how, I don't know how", he said, before breaking into tears as he held onto his father-in-law. He said he was "dumbfounded" by the bloodshed.

Witnesses described a tall man, wearing all black with a hood covering part of his face, entering the bar shortly before midnight. When he arrived, Sergeant Helus heard gunfire coming from inside the bar, which was occupied by almost 200 college students. He died at a hospital early Thursday. 'I know where I'm going when I die, so I wasn't anxious to sacrifice myself'. "I told his wife he died a hero - he went in to save lives", Dean said.

Dean estimated 10 to 15 people went to the area hospitals for what he expects are minor injuries.

"There were people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics", Dean said. "There is a lot of bad in this world, but there is also a lot of good and people will help", she said.

Authorities haven't identified what motivated Long to open fire during college night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, around 64 kilometres from downtown Los Angeles.

"This is not going to be easy for our family for a very long time", he said. I knew it was real. "I don't think there's anything more heroic than what he did".

Although the tragedy hit so close to home - Pepperdine has confirmed that some of its students were at the scene - Crescencio was busy interviewing people and posting live video to Facebook.

"It just rings and rings", he said.
