Mass Shooting Injures at Least 11 People in Southern California Restaurant

Hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks when Long, armed with an uzi, unleashed a terrifying barrage of smoke bombs before opening fire and killing 12 people, leaving "blood everywhere".

The unnamed gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill around midnight on Wednesday, Nov. 7, injuring at least 11 people.

The killer was identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old veteran who authorities said had an episode of erratic behavior last spring that was thought to be post-traumatic stress disorder because of his military background.

At 10:00 a.m. Thursday, Helus' body will be transported via motorcade from Los Robles Hospital to westbound Janss Road. Police said the gunman was also dead when officers arrived at the scene.

"He gave his all ... he went in to save lives, to save other people", Dean said. Information on the victims has not yet been released.

Two-step lessons in country dancing were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website.

Three of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. modern history have occurred since October 2017. "As soon as we heard a break in the shooting we knew he was reloading and we threw a couple of bar stools through the closest to us so we could get out".

Ron Helus was among those killed, authorities said.

Authorities found up to 15 more people at the scene with injuries, not including those who escaped from the nightclub, which had been hosting a "College Country" night.

"It was chaos, people jumping out of windows, people hopping over gates to get out" Steinwender told KABC-TV.

Iranians Condemn US Arrogant Policies in Nationwide Rallies
Thousands of Iranians rallied Sunday in commemoration of the 39th anniversary of the takeover and hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran , just hours before the re-imposition of all American sanctions lifted by the nuclear deal.

A law enforcement source told the LA Times that approximately 30 shots were fired and that victims were at multiple locations as they fled.

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.

Dean confirmed the weapon was purchased legally, a.45 caliber Glock 21 handgun.

In yet another unusual coincidence, one of the victims to be named in the Vegas shooting was Susan Smith from Simi Valley which is only miles from the site of the Borderline shooting.

The deadliest attack in modern United States history came last year in Las Vegas when a 62-year-old man opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 country music concertgoersfrom the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel, killing 58 and wounding hundreds.

Located around 40 miles west of Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks was recently ranked as one of the country's safest cities.

"It's a horrific incident", Dean told reporters. He told her, "I've got to go handle a call".

"I screamed to him, 'There's a shooter in there!' He was kind of in disbelief, then saw that I was serious", Knapp said.

"No one's gotten back to me", he said on camera without giving his name.
