"This guy just came out of nowhere and came out with a gun and shot people in Thousand Oaks, California", Harrah said. The one identified victim was Sgt. Ron Helus, who was with the force for almost 30 years.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office announced that a procession will be held for Helus at 10:00 a.m. today.

"I have not got any information, I am in the dark right now and it's actually tearing me up".

Dean said the slain deputy was on the phone with his wife before telling her he had to go respond to a scene.

It was the last time she would talk to her husband. Sergeant Helus immediately made entry into the bar and confronted the shooter.

Dressed in black, the shooter is still "active" and has exchanged fire with cops who were alerted to the attack at 11.20pm local time.

"The fact that he was the first in the door doesn't surprise me at all", sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow said Thursday. "He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation".

Helus leaves behind a wife and a son.

Cole Knapp, a freshman at Moorpark, said he was inside the bar when the shooting began, but thought at first that it was "just someone with an M-80, just kind of playing a prank". "Patient. Calm no matter what". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. 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.

Authorities have confirmed that Long was found dead at the scene with a gunshot wound.

An official said the man was 29 years old and deployed a smoke device and used a.45-calibre handgun when he opened fire inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, north of Los Angeles.

"A lot of people in the Route 91 situation go here", Gunn said.

Cody, a star athlete, was hoping to join the military before his death and had been talking to army recruiters.

Cody adored his siblings - three brothers between ages 6 and 9 - and he couldn't wait for the birth of a sister, due on November 29, said Jason Coffman of Camarillo.

He said Cody will be remembered for his love for his younger siblings, including two brothers and a soon-to-be born sister, and that he loved working with kids. A young man who was inside the club came up to me and said, 'You know what?

He trailed off, sobbing, then said, "Oh, Cody, I love you, son".

Cody's father, Jason, tearfully told reporters about the deep love that he and his son had for one another. My parents let me go here.

The sheriff said Long was believed to have killed himself late on Wednesday at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the city of Thousand Oaks. The only thing I that could have wished for is to have something better than a bar stool, ' he said. "I don't think there's anything more heroic than what he did".

California Lutheran University, located about 8 kilometres from the bar, cancelled classes on Thursday, while Pepperdine University, about 32 kilometres away, planned a prayer service.

"Life is fragile", Johnston said, his voice choking.
