Dean said the suspect was found dead inside the bar with a gunshot wound, but that it was not clear who had fired that shot.

The police officer was injured when he arrived at the scene with colleagues and "attempted to neutralize the threat", Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said.

It would be the last act of a 29-year law enforcement veteran described as hardworking and dedicated and, now, as a hero. "He was totally committed".

Helus, 54, was survived by his wife and son.

Thirteen people were killed at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, a well-known college hangout, late Wednesday night.

Alaina Housley - the niece of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley - also died. They found Long "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally", Dean said. According to the Times, he called his wife before entering the bar. "I love you. I'll talk to you later", Dean said of the conversation.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean spoke to the media Thursday after a gunman killed 12 people at a nightclub, including a police sergeant who was responding to the shooting. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this hard time".

"It's a horrific incident", Dean told reporters.

His Facebook profile is full of photos of the officer and his son hunting, fishing, hill-walking and playing with their dog together. My heart goes out to his family. He heard of Helus's death when scrolling through Facebook and seeing multiple posts of a Ventura County Sheriff's badge with a black band over it, the sign of a fallen officer. Silikula rushed outside to see what was happening.

He said that there are at least "six victims including one deputy" who are still inside the bar.

Whittler said during her escape she was trampled on and hit in the head with a barstool that was being thrown at a window by another person trying to get out.

There was no screaming, she said - just gunfire and stampeding crowds. "It made me smile".

"A lot of people who are still sleeping now, are going to wake up this morning seeing their hometown in a different light".

Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar and he was taken to Los Robles hospital, where he died an hour later. Helus had worked some drug-investigation assignments and also had served many years on a SWAT team, Buschow said.

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