A sheriff says 13 people are dead, including a sheriff’s sergeant and the gunman, after a shooting inside a crowded Southern California bar late on Wednesday.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean says sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus responded to the scene and was shot after he entered the building. He died at a hospital early Thursday.

Dean says around 10 other people were shot and wounded. No other information on the victims was immediately known.

Police tell the Ventura County Star that the initial report came around 11:20 p.m. and that a man opened fire at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. The extent of the victims’ injuries wasn’t immediately known.
