  • Authorities responded to a report of an active shooter at a Thousand Oaks nightclub

Sgt. Helus had a wife and son, and was due to retire in the next year from Ventura County, California Sheriff's Office.

Teylor Whittler told "Fox & Friends" she was at the country bar celebrating a friend's 21st birthday when the shooting occurred. "I just want him to know that he's going to be missed".

"I saw the shots go off, although I didn't really see the guy", she said.

Some mistook the gunfire for firecrackers when he began shooting, the New York Times reported.

Chandler Gunn, 23, told the San Diego Tribune that when he heard about the shooting he rushed to the bar and called a friend who works at Borderline, who like numerous bar's regular patrons was also at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas when a gunman killed 58 people and wounded hundreds.

Twelve people were killed, including Helus.

"People started running to the back door", she said.

Authorities have identified the gunman and the handgun he used to kill 12 people at a southern California bar.

It is also close to several other universities, including California State University Channel Islands in Camarillo, Pepperdine University in Malibu and Moorpark College in Moorpark.
