  • At least eleven wounded in shooting at bar in southern California

Helus was one of the first deputies to arrive on the scene and rushed into the bar to confront the gunman, officials said.

"I was thinking I would just go under a table until a man came up from behind me, grabbed me up by the waist and pulled me up and told me, 'Run!"

"He said, 'Hon, I got to go, I love you".

Matt Wennerstron, a 20 year old college student and regular at the bar, said the shooter fired a short-barreled pistol that apparently had a 10-15 round magazine. They found Long "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally", Dean said.

It was the latest mass shooting to rock the United States, six days after the death of two women at a yoga class in Tallahassee, Florida and 12 days after an anti-Semitic gunman entered a synagogue in Pittsburgh and killed 11 worshippers.

"We heard shots, I looked up and knew exactly what was happening".

CNN said people smashed windows with chairs to escape.

After hearing gunfire coming from inside the bar, which was occupied by almost 200 college students, he made entry into the venue and confronted the shooter. My parents let me go here.

Dean said that the shooter had a handgun and that at this early stage in the investigation he believed he had only one gun.

The identity of the gunman is allegedly 28-year-old David Ian Long, a military veteran who apparently drove his mother's vehicle to the scene.

Police said a highway patrol officer and another policeman, Sergeant Ron Helus, entered the bar after hearing gunshots.

She later reported that a freshman from her school remained missing as of 6:30 a.m.

Terrified people used barstools to break second-floor windows and jump to safety after a hooded gunman dressed in black set off a smoke device and opened fire in a crowded Southern California bar. He was a 29-year veteran of the department and was considering retiring this year.

The bar is located in Thousand Oaks, Ventura County, about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles. When he went inside the building Helus "was struck multiple times with gunfire", Dean said.

ORIGINAL 5:44 a.m.

Ventura County Sherriff Geoff Dean described the scene inside the bar as "horrific" and said there was "blood everywhere".

The shooter who opened fire inside a California country bar Wednesday night has been identified as 28-year-old U.S. Marine veteran Ian David Long by police.

Wednesday night was college night at Borderline, with the restaurant filled with young people, including some from nearby California Lutheran University and from Pepperdine University in Malibu.
