At least 12 people were killed on Wednesday when a gunman opened fire inside a Southern California bar filled with local college students. On Wednesday, the bar was hosting College Country Night — a night of dancing open to anyone 18 and older, which regularly drew crowds of local country music fans. Victims included the first law enforcement officer who tried to stop the gunman, bar employees, and college students. Helus, 54, was the first officer to arrive at the scene of the shooting , along with a California Highway Patrol officer. When Helus and the patrol officer entered the bar, they immediately exchanged gunfire with the suspect, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said at a press conference. Helus was shot several times and died in the hospital early Thursday morning. He was due to retire next year.
