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

Facebook

Long was found dead at the scene, having apparently shot himself.

Possibly several hundred people were in the Borderline Bar and Grill at an event for college students when the shooting erupted, said Gary Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff's office.

"What I'm scared of is Cody went towards the action and not away from the action", he said.

Here's what we know about the late Wednesday shooting.

This violence came just days after 11 people were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue, months after 17 students and staff were massacred in a high school at Parkland, Florida, and a year after 84 people were killed in rampages in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs, Texas. That, in turn, closely followed the series of pipe bombs mailed to critics of President Donald Trump. But it had an extended magazine - one capable of holding more ammunition - that is illegal in California, Dean said. He ordered flags flown at half-staff in honor of the victims.

"If you were a victim of a crime, you want him investigating the case", Buschow said.

"There's no indication that he targeted the employees".

"We have not found any type of assault rifle inside the location", he said.

"We have no idea what the motive was at this point".

Witnesses told CNN the attacker had a large handgun, wore a black trench coat and glasses and threw smoke grenades inside bar.

Dean estimated that 10 to 15 people, including one with a gunshot wound, had gone to area hospitals.

About two dozen parents waited nearby early Thursday morning for news of their children. "A friend yelled, 'Everybody down!' We were hiding behind tables trying to keep ourselves covered".

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant". Dean also said they responded to an incident at his home in April. California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times.

The life coach, who specialises in "self awareness" training, said he felt discriminated against because of his advanced years. Ratelband argues that "nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age".

He said Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the department, later died after being taken to a hospital.

The sheriff said a mental health crisis team was called at that time and concluded that Long did not need to be taken into custody.

Jason Coffman spoke to reporters Thursday about Cody Coffman, his firstborn - who was killed when a gunman entered Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, CA and began firing upon the crowd.

Freshman Mahala Bayless said the community is coming together in the wake of the tragedy.

"Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with the people that it happened to", defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said.

At least 11 people were wounded in a shooting in a crowded bar in Thousand Oaks, California, reports CBS Los Angeles. She had her arm around another student who was at the Borderline Bar on Wednesday night, but who was too shaken to talk about it. "That's the stuff I'm truly going to miss", he said.

"Oh, Cody, I love you, son", Coffman sobbed. Law enforcement and emergency crews were flooding the scene. Rapid-fire gunshots could be heard as officers crouched behind a police vehicle, weapons drawn.

"There's people that live a whole lifetime without seeing this, and then there's people that have seen it twice".

"I saw somebody on the floor as I was running to the front door to get out", he said. "There was an exit right next to me, so I went through that. I ran to the nearest exit and tripped and fell on the way and people kept running on top of me". Hide!' So I get down.

Investigators believe Long arrived Wednesday night at the bar in a auto, shot a security guard who was standing outside and then stepped inside.

Chandler Gunn, 23, of Newberry Park called a friend who works at the bar who was also at the Route 91 shooting in Vegas.

"We haven't heard back from everyone", she told CNN.

"It looked like he knew what he was doing", Whitler told KABC-TV.
