Sgt. Helus, a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, died when he ran into the Borderline bar to confront the gunman, officials said.

Among the dead is Sergeant Ron Helus, who was reportedly killed while trying to enter the club with Highway Patrol officers responding to the gunfire.

Authorities say multiple people - at least 11 - were injured in the shooting, including one officer, though the extent of the injuries wasn't immediately known.

"Ron ... gave his all and tonight, he died a hero because he went in to save lives", Dean said. "He went in to save lives, to save other people", the sherriff said.

"Losing Ron, we go to the gym together and work out together", Dean said.

Kuredjian said the shooter no longer posed a threat to surrounding communities, but could not confirm if he was shot dead or captured. The gunman died inside the bar, police said.

Carl Edgar, a 24 resident of Tarzana, Los Angeles, told the Los Angeles Times around 20 of his friends were at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks when a gunman opened fire, killing at least 12 people.

Patrons threw barstools through windows in a desperate attempt to escape a gunman at a country-and-western bar in southern California late Wednesday.

Thousand Oaks is a city of about 130,000 people about 64 kilometers west of Los Angeles, just across the county line.

Two-step lessons in country dancing were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website. The venue, which describes itself as the county's largest country dance hall and live music venue, was hosting a "College Country Night". "We're proud of that", Fox said.

A law enforcement officer said the suspect used a.45-caliber handgun, created to hold a magazine of 10 rounds.

It is yet to be determined if he shot himself or was shot by other officers, according to Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean.

Twelve people were killed and 23 more injured at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California on November 7 when David Ian Long, 28, opened fire before killing himself.

Before hearing of his son's death, Mr Coffman had been frantically driving to hospitals around Thousand Oaks in the USA state of California begging for information. A crisis intervention specialist was called to his house and talked to him, but left without taking him into custody, Dean said.

"There were people hiding in restrooms, people hiding in attics", Dean said.

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started.
