Dean said he did not know of the shooter's motive, and he did not know of any connection between Long and the Borderline bar.

Reports say the suspect may have used smoke grenades and at least one weapon, described as a semi-automatic handgun by witnesses. He died in an area hospital Thursday morning.

A "dedicated" police officer who was one year from retirement died in the California bar massacre while trying to stop the gunman, it emerged today.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean briefs reporters at the intersection of U.S. 101 freeway and the Moorpark Rad exit as police vehicles close off the area responding to a shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, on November 8, 2018.

The Borderline, which opened in the 1980s, calls itself "Ventura County's largest country dance hall and live music venue" with 2,500 square feet of wide-open dance floor, according to its website.

Dean said there had been six off-duty police officers from different departments in the bar at the time. "As soon as we heard a break in the shooting we knew he was reloading and we threw a couple of bar stools through the closest to us so we could get out".

He said the gunman had apparently shot himself.

Kuredjian said it has been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 65 kilometres west of Los Angeles, just across the county line.

Authorities found up to 15 more people at the scene with injuries, not including those who escaped from the nightclub, which had been hosting a "College Country" night.

An unnamed witness told the newspaper that someone ran into the bar around 11:30 pm and started shooting what looked to be a black pistol.

Officials said that shots were still being fired when the first officers arrived at the scene.

During a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean stated Helus was married with an adult son.

"The reality is that these types of incidents can happen really at any place, at any time, even in communities that are considered extremely safe".

"A lot of people were just running around, young kids, and I just heard the gunshots going even as I was running to the vehicle", Dominguez said while fighting back tears.

He said: "We will pray, begin to comfort one another in our grief, and hold the families, friends and loved ones of the victims in our hearts".

Helus was among the first officers through the door at the Borderline.

Thousand Oaks is located in Ventura County, about 65km from downtown Los Angeles.

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started. She said everyone yelled "Get down!" and then it was silent for a few seconds. "That's the stuff I'm truly going to miss", he said.
