Mass Shooting at California Bar 'Country Night' Leaves 12 People Dead

Another sad scene was thrust on our society Wednesday night when a “mysterious man in black clutching a semi-automatic pistol” went into a California bar, filled with college students attending a “country night,” and opened fire, killing at least 12 people.

The gunman was also found dead at the scene.

According to Fox News:

Hundreds of people -- including students from California Lutheran University, private Christian school Pepperdine University and California State University Channel Islands -- were inside Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., for the country music event when shots suddenly rang out at about 11:20 p.m., Ventura County police said. Police said at least 30 shots were fired and the gunman, armed with a .45-caliber handgun, used a smoke device to disorient and confuse his targets.

Deputies and highway patrolmen arrived at the bar within minutes of receiving multiple 911 calls and began assessing the grim, gruesome situation, Sheriff Geoff Dean said during an early Thursday press conference.

One of the victims of the shooter was Sgt. Ron Helus of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Helus was reportedly nearing retirement as he had been on the force for 29 years. Helus was taken to a local hospital but lost his battle early Thursday morning resulting from the multiple gunshot wounds he suffered.

Teylor Whittler spoke to “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning and said that the gunman seemed like he knew how to handle himself well with a weapon.

“While I was inside I would say [I heard]…about a good 30 seconds [of gunshots]…he had two [magazines] that I know with him. He changed them within about six seconds, which was really fast,” she said. “As soon as he walked in he had perfect form…he looked like he knew what he was doing. He had practiced, he had been shooting [before].”
