The Ventura County community was flipped upside down late Wednesday night - college country music night at Borderline Bar & Grill where almost 200 people were trapped inside when a gunman armed with a Glock.45 caliber handgun opened fire.

On Oct. 1, 2017, Orfanos attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas when a gunman perched inside his room at the MGM hotel overlooking the venue rained down a hail of gunfire on the concertgoers, killing 58 people and wounded hundreds more.

Sheriff Geoff Dean, who choked back tears while talking about Helus, said his friend had been talking to his wife when the shooting call came in.

Helus was a 29-year veteran of the force with a wife and son and planned to retire next year.

"He died tonight going in to try to save others and paid the ultimate sacrifice", Dean said.

The gunman, also found dead, used a handgun fitted with an extended magazine for extra bullets. Officials believe Long took his own life.

"It's a horrific scene in there", he said. "There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that". Several witnesses described the weapon used as a pistol.

"I started hearing these big pops".

After a man fatally shot 11 worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue last month, U.S. President Donald Trump said their deaths could have been prevented if an armed guard had been stationed inside the temple.

"He didn't come home last night and I don't want prayers, I don't want thoughts".

Holden Harrah told CNN the gunman opened fire within seconds.

The shooting, which also killed a law enforcement officer, took place at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. "And that's what's really blowing my mind, it's a really safe area".

The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler of NY, said lawmakers would start crafting a gun-control bill when the House convenes with a Democratic majority in early January.

BOURKE STREET CHAOS: Car explodes, man with knife shot by police
Footage taken by witnesses showed police shooting the man after he threatened them with an object that appeared to be a knife. Victoria Police responded to a major incident on Friday afternoon on Bourke Street in Melbourne , Australia.


People dropped to the floor and hid behind bar stools in stunned silence. "They couldn't get him to come out, so it was like a standoff for four or five hours".

When deputies arrived at the scene three minutes after the first 911 call, shots were still being fired, Dean said.

"As soon as I identified where the target was or where the threat was, I grabbed at least two people around me and yanked them as hard as I could to get to the nearest exit", he said in the report.

Dean estimated 10 to 15 people, including one with a gunshot wound, had gone to hospitals.

The bar is near several colleges, and is a popular spot for students Wednesday nights.

Cole Knapp, a Moorpark College freshman, and 20-year-old Matt Wennerstrom were having fun at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks when a man sprayed the bar with gunfire Wednesday night.

"I just kind of saw it in the corner of my eye and I heard a gunshot and I focused on him and I saw that he was holding a handgun and he continued to shoot at the girl at the front desk", Knapp, 19, told Reuters TV. Everyone just yelled, "Run, he's coming!"

Miriah Piasecki said two of her best friends were killed. Celebration can easily turn to tragedy if a gunman were to walk into a nightspot and start shooting.

Residents took to social media to share their views of the flames almost consuming the hillside in Newbury Park, which borders Thousand Oaks to the west.

Federal Bureau of Investigation data suggests that Thousand Oaks is the third-safest city in the country.

"We are consistently ranked one of the highest with respect to the lowest crime rate per capita".

"Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her, and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner", the couple said in a statement.
