Right before Ventura County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus rushed into the Borderline Bar & Grill on Wednesday night to respond to reports of a mass shooting, he called his wife.

Helus was among the first law enforcement officers to arrive shortly after 11:20 p.m. He ran through the front door and was shot multiple times by the gunman, Dean said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Helus, a Moorpark resident, was a 29-year veteran of the department and was planning to retire in the next year, Dean said.

He is survived by his wife and son.
