Shooting reported at California bar

At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

At least 12 people have been killed, including a police officer, at a country music bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus responded to the scene and was shot after he entered the building. He died at a hospital after being shot numerous times.

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

"We do not know at this time how many rounds were actually in the weapon or how many rounds the magazine could actually hold because it's still being processed as part of the evidence", Dean said.

The Borderline, which includes a large dance hall along with several smaller areas for eating and drinking, was holding its regular "College Country Nights" Wednesday night when the attack took place.

Kuredjian said at around 0915 GMT (5pm Singapore time) that the shooter was still confined inside the premises, adding that he did not know if he had been subdued or shot. When they realized what was occurring, some patrons used barstools to break a window and escape, according to the Associated Press.

The incident in California came two weeks after a gunman killed 11 people and injured seven at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, while Shabbat morning services were being held.

"I was at the Las Vegas Route 91 mass shooting, it's a big thing for us, we're all a big family and unfortunately this family got hit twice", said Nicholas Champion. But most agree that there was a shooting and many people fled the bar and grill.

"Sergeant [Ron Helus] was on the force for 29 years, was looking to retire in the next year or so and has survived by his wife and son", Sheriff Dean said.

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.

Witnesses say the suspect was dressed in all black, and forced his way into the bar after first shooting the bouncer.

One of them was Jason Coffman, father of a 22-year-old man who he learned was among those killed. She said everyone yelled "Get down!" and then it was silent for a few seconds.

Deputies are at Long's home, seeking to serve a search warrant, Dean said.
