A gunman killed 12 people, including sheriff sergeant Ron Helus, after opening fire at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, yesterday.
The gunman was found dead at the scene. Police officers headed to Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at around 11:20 p.m., Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said, after receiving multiple calls of shots fired.
About 10 to 12 people were also found with different levels of injury who were rescued and taken to local hospitals.
More people with minor injuries took themselves to hospitals as well. The sheriff didn’t provide additional information about the gunman but said no links to terrorism had yet been determined.
Borderline, which bills itself as the “biggest dance floor in town,” had been hosting an event called “College Country Night” when the shooting occurred.
The bar is reportedly a popular spot for college students from nearby California Lutheran University, Moorpark College and Pepperdine University.
