"He gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives, to save other people", Dean added. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this hard time", the department added.

Officers escorted large groups of people to safety as they left the area. "I love you. I'll talk to you later, "' Dean said.

People at the bar fled from all exits, broke through windows and hid in the attic and bathrooms, the sheriff said.

The bar was holding a college country nights event between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. on Wednesday night, its website states.


Officers were called to Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, near Los Angeles, at around 11.20pm local time.

"We knew he was going there, to know he may not come home is another thing", Jason Coffman told the station.

Some people who were inside the bar said they had survived the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas previous year.

Pepperdine University confirmed several students were at the bar during the shooting.

Another witness said there was numerous shots fired inside the bar. "Those are my people and it's just not fair, it's not fair", she said. My son thought it was a joke, so I pulled him down and got some cover. I saw him point to the back of the cash register.and he just kept firing. He said he had friends who hadn't been accounted for.

"It was really, really really shocking", Whitler told KABC-TV as she stood with her father in the Borderline parking lot.

A 29-year-veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office was killed during a horrific mass murder in Thousand Oaks, California, late Wednesday night.
