Sydney footballer reveals horror at being caught up in California shooting

California bar shooting Six people injured authorities speculate an'active scene

Helus was shot multiple times as he and a California Highway Patrol officer exchanged fire with the gunman inside the bar.

"This guy just came out of nowhere and came out with a gun and shot people in Thousand Oaks, California", Harrah said.

During college, he worked in the school's veteran resource office and often worked with the Veterans Club to plan events and help veteran students.

'Justin was a criminal justice and criminology major who had a passion for doing what was right, ' Jenn Zimmerman, Cal Lutheran's veterans coordinator, said in a statement.

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.

He was also part of the Kingsmen Quartet and sang the National Anthem at graduation, Zimmerman said. We don't know precisely what he was saying, but it appears he had a grudge he was carrying out. Justin was a real go-getter and had his whole life ahead of him.

"Oh, Cody, I love you, son", Coffman sobbed.

The sheriff reportedly choked up describing his colleague, who leaves behind a wife and son.

He says that Long kept to himself and played baseball when he was younger. He worked on drug investigation assignments, served on a SWAT team and was a firearms instructor for recruits at basic training. He also had his own business teaching gun safety to people seeking concealed weapons permits.

"He had just a natural instinct for going after crooks, and he did it with enthusiasm, with a great deal of intelligence", Buschow said.

The bar was hosting its weekly "College Country Night" when the incident was reported around 11.20 pm.


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

He and the CHP officer went inside, according to Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean, who held an emotional news conference outside the bar early Thursday morning.

United Methodist Church Westlake Village identified another victim, Noel Sparks, as a member of its congregation. He said, "I was concerned because I knew he had been in the military".

A number of survivors of that shooting, the worst in modern USA history, have said they were at the bar on Wednesday.

"She was genuinely caring, and loved serving people", Penrose said. "She definitely left a legacy of selfless servitude".

Manrique, 33, was a Marine veteran. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Third Marine Division in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

"There's no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect", said Mr Dean, who was set to retire today.

People "dog-piled on top of each other" trying to hide in silence, she said. He said he had an army of friends and families on alert, making calls, and watching the news looking out for his son.

'My heart breaks. I'm still in disbelief, ' Mowry-Housley wrote in a tribute to her niece on Instagram. Shortly afterward, Coffman told her it was time to get out.

The couple earlier used Twitter and Instagram to seek information about and prayers for their niece.
