Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus ‘Died a Hero’ During Thousand Oaks Shooting

Recommended Posts

Ventura County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus died responding to an active shooter Wednesday night in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Helus, a 29-year veteran of the department, was reportedly the first one to enter that Borderline Bar and Grill, where the shooting took place.

According to multiple reports, Helus immediately entered the bar upon hearing gunfire from outside. Police said Helus confronted the shooter, “but was shot and severely wounded. Civilians and other deputies pulled Sergeant Helus from the bar.”

Ventura Sheriff Geoff Dean confirmed that Helus died at the hospital.

Ron Helus Hailed as a Hero

Law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day. Other members of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said Helus epitomized what it is to be an LEO.

“He’s absolutely a hero. … He epitomized what a cop does — he’s a cop’s cop,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Garo Kuredjian told CNN. “When he heard the gunfire, he ran in. He ran in and no doubt saved others from being victimized. … And that’s what cops do; that’s what he did.”

“He gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives, to save other people,” Dean said.

Dean said Helus was planning to retire in the next year. He is survived my his wife and son.

We, at Tactical-Life.com, offer our sincerest condolences to Helus’ family and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. He made the ultimate sacrifice when called upon. We will always remember him as the hero he was.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
