Sheriff's deputy killed while responding to shooting

Witnesses described a chaotic scene as panicked patrons smashed windows to get out.

According to the website Gun Violence Archive, more than 12,000 people have been killed using firearms in the U.S. so far this year, including about 3,000 people under 18.

A US official told NPR's Tom Bowman that Long "was not a stellar Marine".

A GUNMAN opened fire at a bar in California killing 12 people including a cop and injuring at least ten more today.

Once again, President Donald Trump has ordered flags at half-staff "in a mark of solemn respect". They found Long "somewhat irate, acting a little irrationally", Dean said.

When deputies responded to the scene, he said, shots were still being fired.

His Facebook profile is full of photos of the officer and his son hunting, fishing, hill-walking and playing with their dog together.

Helus was immediately hit with multiple gunshots, Dean said.

"Sgt. Helus will be transported via motorcade from Los Robles Hospital to westbound Janss Road", the department said in a statement.

Helus was on the phone with his wife when he got the call about the shooting incident.

Authorities did not say how the gunman died.

The shooting happened on college night.

Students had gathered for college country night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday when shots rang out around 11 p.m.

The bar is a country-themed bar known for its large dance floor and live music events, according to its website.

Prior to her appointment, Ms Ginsburg focused her work on women's rights and started the first law journal dedicated to the topic. President Donald Trump has appointed two justices to the court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh , since taking office.

"I've learned it doesn't matter what community you're in", Dean told reporters when asked if he was surprised this happened in Thousand Oaks.

Video accessed by the AP showed law enforcement officers and vehicles speeding to the scene and people running from the bar.

Holden Harrah told CNN the gunman opened fire within seconds.

He said the only weapon found in an initial sweep was a handgun. "I don't know if she is alive", he 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!"

US President Donald Trump said on Twitter that he has been "fully briefed on the bad shooting".

Curtis Kellogg, a friend who served with Long, said Long headed to Southern California to pursue a degree in sports medicine after his service in Afghanistan. "From what I heard, the gunman started shooting at the front desk".

"It was really, really, really shocking", Whitler told KABC-TV as she stood with her father in the parking lot. "It looked like he knew what he was doing".

Coffman later confirmed that his son Cody was one of the victims killed in the mass shooting. "That's the stuff I'm truly going to miss", he said. "A friend yelled, 'Everybody down!' We were hiding behind tables trying to keep ourselves covered".

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed", Dean said, choking back a few tears and clearing his throat.

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

Police officers and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents run at the scene of the mass shooting.

One survivor, Matthew Estron, told NBC Los Angeles that the shooter was tall dressed "all in black" and armed with a handgun and some kind of smoke grenades.

Police said that hundreds of people were in the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks and shots were still being fired when officers arrived.
