Authorities: Gunman shoots 11 at California bar
"This guy just came out of nowhere and came out with a gun and shot people in Thousand Oaks, California", Harrah said.
"It's a horrific scene in there", Dean said at a news conference early Thursday in the parking lot of the Borderline Bar & Grill.
Authorities said the gunman died inside the bar but would not say how he died.
At least a dozen people were killed - including a "hero" cop who was due to retire next year and died bravely trying to save others' lives. The extent of the surviving victims' injuries wasn't immediately known.
Kuredjian said hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at 11:20 p.m., and shots were still being fired when deputies arrived.
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.
There were roughly 200 people in the bar for a popular weekly "College Country" night, police said.
A US official told NPR's Tom Bowman that Long "was not a stellar Marine".
Police had multiple run-ins with Long in the past, Dean said.
It was "college night" at the bar, and many students were there to learn the country two-step.
Ventura County sheriff's spokesman Captain Garo Kuredjian said a procession was set for 10 a.m.to take Helus' body from Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks to the examiner's office in Ventura.
The sheriff's department and the wider community are mourning the "hero" officer today, who was one of the 12 people killed in the mass shooting in Southern California.
When the shots started, some people smashed windows with chairs to escape, witnesses told CNN.
The killer also deployed a smoke device, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.
"All I did was grab as many people as I could and pull them underneath the table until I heard a break in the shots, and then we got people out of there, as much as we could", Wennerstrom told the news station about the moment shots rang out.
During an interview with CNN, Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said Helus was a "true cop's cop", enthusiastic and excited about his work in law enforcement. "I love you. I'll talk to you later".
It's unclear what the motive is and the connection between the gunman and the Borderline Bar and Grill. He told her, "I've got to go handle a call".
Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, according to the sheriff.
"No one's gotten back to me", he said on camera without giving his name. "As far as I know, all of my friends are OK, safe", he said.
