LeBron James, Jared Goff, other athletes react to Thousand Oaks mass shooting

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

Dozens of people, including one officer, have reportedly been injured in a bar shooting in Thousand Oaks, California.

Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a news conference Thursday morning that 28-year-old Ian David Long approached the building with a Glock 21.45-caliber handgun.

The wounded police officer was taken to hospital, but later died of his injuries.

A "dedicated" police officer who was one year from retirement died in the California bar massacre while trying to stop the gunman, it emerged today. The sheriff says he told Helus' wife "he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

At Borderline Bar and Grill, a country-western dance bar that is a popular venue for college students, the night took a turn when a gunman entered and opened fire. Nine months ago, another mass shooting occurred in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and teachers were fatally shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. "As soon as we heard a break in the shooting we knew he was reloading and we threw a couple of bar stools through the closest to us so we could get out".

Alaina Housley, a student at Pepperdine University, was reported missing following the shooting by her suitemate.

The suspect, who has not been identified, was found dead inside the bar, Dean said.

"There was probably three or four", one young man told local television station KABC.

CNN's Acosta owes Trump White House staffer an apology
Acosta then attempted to ask a follow-up question, only to be told by the president, "That's enough". Mr Alexander came to his colleague's defence. "Mia Love gave me no love", he said.

The Los Angeles Times quoted a law enforcement official as saying that at least 30 shots were fired inside the bar.

He said responding deputies could hear gunshots as they arrived.

Ron Helus, who had worked in law enforcement for 29 years, had planned to retire in the coming year, Dean said, noting that the two were friends who often worked out together. Dean said the suspect had an extended magazine on the weapon.

"The reality is that these types of incidents can happen really at any place, at any time, even in communities that are considered extremely safe", he added.

Thousand Oaks is in Ventura County, about 40 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

In yet another unusual coincidence, one of the victims to be named in the Vegas shooting was Susan Smith from Simi Valley which is only miles from the site of the Borderline shooting.

"He had a great sense of humor and like most Marines who have seen combat it could get dark at times, just like all of us", Kellogg said. He said he had an army of friends and families on alert, making calls, and watching the news looking out for his son. "There's a fence right there so I said, 'Everyone get over the fence as quickly as you can, ' and I followed them over".

Speaking through tears, Mr Coffman said: "I talked to him last night, before he headed out the door".
