Shooting reported at California bar

Jasmin Alexander, who was with around 15 friends at the bar, said there was chaos and confusion inside when shots rang out.

He then shot patrons who were attending the venue's country music night for college students, Dean said.

Tom Hanson, 70, who lives next door to Long and his mother, said Thursday that he called the police about six months ago when he heard "heavy-duty banging" and shouting coming from the Longs' home.

"I'm a Thousand Oaks resident", 19-year-old Erika Sigman said, according to the LA Times.

Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus.

Steve Mayorga worked on and off with Helus in the Ventura County Sheriff's Office for nearly 30 years. "He was totally committed, he gave his all, and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero; he went in to save lives, to save other people".

Immediately following Helus' death, Dean held back tears as he remembered Helus during a press conference, ABC-owned station KABC reported.

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

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

"A true cop's cop", Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow told CNN Thursday morning. "He's just one of those guys that wouldn't hesitate in a situation".

"He loved spending time with his son", said Buschow. "Patient. Calm no matter what". Mayorga said if you ever needed fishing advice, Helus was the one to ask.

He said Helus was on the SWAT team for much of his career and worked in narcotics and investigations.

"If you were a victim of a crime, you want him investigating the case", Buschow said. He was later found dead at or near an office in the business.

"The Cal Lutheran community is filled with sorrow over the violent events that took place last night a few miles from campus in Thousand Oaks".

Twenty-three people were injured - some from "jumping out of windows, diving under tables", Dean said - and treated at area hospitals.

Cody left behind three brothers under the age of 10. "I love you. I'll talk to you later", Dean said of the conversation.

'As soon as I heard the shots I knew exactly what was going on, ' Wennerstrom said.'I turned and saw a dark figure, and chose to get out of there as soon as I could'.

Of course, Jason went through the kind of private hell that any parent would in this case.

Thirteen people including a sheriff's deputy and the gunman were killed in a shooting in a crowded bar late Wednesday night, reports CBS Los Angeles. The only thing I that could have wished for is to have something better than a bar stool, ' he said. "But I've learned, it doesn't matter what community you're in, it doesn't matter how safe your community is".
