Sheriff Vet Killed Responding to Calif Shooting - Police Depts Pay Tribute

Sheriff Vet Killed Responding to Calif Shooting - Police Depts Pay Tribute

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

Police at the scene of the California shooting in which 13 people died, including the gunman and a police officer.

Meek was a criminal justice and criminology major who worked in the Veterans Resource Office for two years for work-study.

Inside the bar, some people heard popping sounds and kept on dancing, thinking it was fireworks sound effects from the song, witnesses said. He was set to sing with the Disney Carolers for the holiday season. "He enjoyed cooking for others and often brought his leftovers for us to share as we envied his cooking skills". Justin was a real go-getter and had his whole life ahead of him. Helus was a 29 veteran of the force who had planned to retire in the next year.

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

Helus was pronounced dead at an area hospital early Thursday morning, one of 12 people killed by Long before the gunman took his own life. He worked on drug investigation assignments, served on a SWAT team and was a firearms instructor for recruits at basic training.

He also echoed Newsom in blaming "gun culture".

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

Von Molt said she and others from nearby California Lutheran University often gathered on Wednesday night to line dance to country music.

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

"Unfortunately our young people, people at nightclubs, have learned that this may happen, and they think about that", Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

Justin Meek was identified as one of the slain victims by his family and his former college.

Matt Wennerstrom, a 20-year-old college student, said the shooter apparently had a 10-15 round magazine on his gun.

The two met in Bible study at Calvary Community Church, Penrose said.

"What can we say that hasn't been said?" host James Corden asked before the tribute.

Knapp said, "It took a couple of seconds for people to realize what was going on and once that happened it was just utter chaos". "She definitely left a legacy of selfless servitude".

Dan Manrique was a Marine Corps veteran whose service continued after he returned stateside. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Third Marine Division in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

"Maybe there was a motive for this particular night, but we have no information leading to that at all", the sheriff said.

"There were people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics", Dean said. "He was Cody Coffman, my first-born son". "He was so excited to have his first sister, and now she'll never know".

She was the niece of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley, who issued a plea to find her in the hours following the attack. Shortly afterward, Coffman told her it was time to get out.
