A sheriff’s sergeant, Deputy Sgt. Ron Helus, who was on the verge of retirement was killed in the tragic shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, on Wednesday, November 7.

“It tears at our hearts and emotions, as it should,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said of all the victims and their families.

Dean explained that Helus and a highway patrol officer immediately entered the bar when they knew what was happening.

“Ron was a hard working, 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.”
