The sheriff’s deputy killed during a mass shooting at a bar in southern California “died a hero” trying to prevent the assailant from taking more lives, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Thursday.
Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, was killed late Wednesday when he responded to an active shooter at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

Helus was shot multiple times by the gunman as he entered the bar with an officer from the California Highway Patrol, Dean told reporters during an emotional news conference. He later died at an area hospital, one of 12 total victims killed in the attack.
“Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff’s sergeant,” Dean said. “He was totally committed, he gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero. He went into save lives, to save other people.”
