So we are looking for answers in the Ventura County Sheriff expected as you can., Then that press conference, when you have more answers for us, we’ve been talking to a lot of people providing information about the suspect. I will getting a better picture of Amanda Stripes wearing all black, possibly a hood on with my semi-automatic pistol, reloading multiple times walking into the borderline Bar and Grill, and just shooting firing away of you’re told that were smoke bombs you as well, and that added to The confusion – the bar was very crowded into college night, a lot of kids young people inside the bar at the time and, of course, once a shot started going off on people Patrick Star, and it was incredibly chaotic situation. I believe the approaching the way as soon as he wishes, but I still piecing this together as well. Thank you also for mation on this incident. I want to introduce on my left Sheriff Jeff Dean, the Sheraton Ventura County name is spelled Geoff. Last name is spelled D e. A n on my right is Ryan young special agent charge of the Los Angeles field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to see misspelled Ryan last name is Young on my right is Steve. Maples he’s a chief of the Coastal Division of the California Highway Patrol first name is spelled l d last name. Maples Maples give me the latest morning, you’re all experienced reporters, and you understand this – is dynamic. Ongoing investigation and a tragic, tragic situation so I’ll go to the I’ll share with you everything I have and will answer all the questions you may have apartments in the FBI and Highway Patrol also have any additional questions you might have tonight at 11:20 p.m. receive multiple Calls the shots being fired at the borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks. Our first unit arrived on scene 3 minutes later. There was also two Highway Patrol officers on scene, quit being on a local traffic, stop and heard the traffic and responded right away. Approximately 3 minutes later, a highway patrol officer and a sheriff sergeant made entry into the border line because they heard shots being fired and felt there might be additional victims inside on going through the front door. Sheriff Sergeant was struck multiple times of gunfire patrol officer, step-back and secure the perimeter until additional units arrived and he rescued Sheriff Sergeant out of the line of gunfire. What additional use units arrived, including Squad Personnel agencies from the Oxnard Police Department to Simi Valley Police Department. The Ventura police department and additional officers from the highway patrol they made entry into the borderline Bar and Grill. They found 11 victims that have been killed back and we believe it was the only suspect, was dead inside and there were multiple other victims of different levels of injury inside that were rescued from and taken to, local hospitals, in addition to the victims in side and The numbers are upwards of 10 to 12. Additional victims with minor injuries, fled the scene on their own and took themselves to local hospitals. We have not identified the suspect yet or Partners when the FBI were on scene almost immediately to help us identification process and with crime scene processing. We have no idea if there is a terrorism link to this event or not. As you know, these are ongoing investigations and then information will come out as soon as you’re able to talk exactly who the suspect was and what motive he might have had for this horrific event. If you have to answer any questions, you might have Sergeant Hills, Dodge Charger passed away at the hospital. How about an hour I only mentioned might be terrorists, because that’s where we all go these days, we have multiple shootings like this. There’S no reason for it. We have this terrific that I have nothing to lead me to believe or the FBI that there is any terrorism like here, but we certainly will look at that option. I’M sorry! What do you mean by device there’s some initial reports that a smoke bomb might have been used? We have not done anything yet we actually had we have crawled in her. You think it’s very exciting speculations pretty easy. You would think if someone throws a smoke device, it was certainly more of a a planned attack and not something spontaneous Sargent. Hillis was on the force for 29 years was looking to retire in the next year, or so he was a Moorpark resident survived by his wife and his son Ron Heelys H, elus. Well, the question is Thousand Oaks and safe. I’M a competitor, horrific incident is part of the horrors that are happening in our country and everywhere, and I think it’s impossible to put any logic or any sense to the senseless. When the officers made entry that the suspect was already deceased there, 11 victims. I will not count the suspect as a victim, the suspect and then Sergeant Heelys 11 victims, the suspect, 12 and Sergeant Heelys makes 13. No, we have not. We have not found any type of assault rifle inside the location. The only weapon we have found that we believe was used was a handgun but still early on and we haven’t gone through the scene in detail yet, but I certainly will thoroughly to know if he actually did take his own. Well, it certainly wait. We have to wait for the medical examiner to get here. We have to do family notification, so candidly it’ll be hours and hours. We don’t know anything about the suspect we haven’t talked to anybody that had any contact with him prior. I acted no idea who he is anything about him, yet I actually, I actually don’t know what the Ages were. It is a nightclub, so I I would speculate. They were probably in the 21 to 26 year old age group. There’S no doubt that the change in how we handle active Shooters played a role start to he listen to high patrol officer first on scene. They knew they had to take action and they went in and did what they had to do. We don’t know how many Ranger, because they went to separate hospitals, speculate, given what I’ve heard somewhere between 10 and 15 additional injuries. And we don’t know, we don’t believe there might be one additional gunshot victim, but we think there are injuries, people trying to escape breaking out windows and doing different things. And I’ve been a cop for 41 years and I never thought I would see that things around. The country what happened, but I’ve learned it doesn’t matter what community you’re in it doesn’t matter. How save your community is. It can happen anywhere because, obviously, for something to do this, they have to have some sort of mental illness, and sadly, we have people with mental illness all over the country rights to anybody in the bar. He kind of indication something like this can happen. We have actually no information about that at all, but again it were very early on in investigation. We actually don’t know. I mean where were interviewing multiple Witnesses, but I can say no, but we haven’t, got everything together to really put that timeline together and will certainly provide that as soon as we can get something, if so, tragic and losing Ron. In a week we go to the gym we got to work out together is horrific and terrible, and it sends are hard, but there’s also other victims in there whose hearts are are ripped out tonight. Mother’S parents wondering oh my gosh, you know what was one of my children in there or was it my my sister or my brother, so there’s just no way to describe this will get to the point where it doesn’t then there’s something wrong with us. Actually change for us after Columbine years and years ago, and we train with our require department for active shooting at officers, know when you get to a scene and there’s two of you or even just one of you and the shooting going on you go in and That’S a change plus what it used to be, and we work so well in our County. I have Patrol was here when, when they made entry the second time tonight, there’s Simi Valley officers or Oxnard officers or Ventura officers, their sheriff’s deputy hi Patrol officers. Everyone comes together to solve the problem, so the timeframe, so the first Japanese arrived on scene at 11:22. They made entry approximately 4 minutes later, that’s when Sergeant Heelys was shot and it – and I don’t have the exact time line – is probably close to 15 minutes. They didn’t hear any shots fired before they regroup, got additional officers and went back in and there were people hiding, but people hiding restrooms for people hiding in attics. I have no idea, none that I know of, but certainly when we find out who the who the suspect is, will go to his location and will work with our Bureau Partners to see if there’s a connection there. But this time there’s. No, not that I know of is part right now. As far as we know, there was only one handgun, but that that could certainly change as we do. A more thorough search of the building, the suspect, was down with a gunshot wound when the deputies, when they officers, went into the building. Yes, who shot the deafening? We don’t we don’t know who shot anybody. At this point, I probably shouldn’t it would be a total gaskets it it’s a horrific scene. In there there was blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that, and I I wouldn’t I didn’t want to get that close in this bird, the scene and possibly jeopardize the investigation. I’M sorry, I can’t hear you well they’re being interviewed by her and I honestly don’t know exactly what they said at this point we wanted to get. I want to get on information as soon as I could to you and will continue to follow up, no idea what happened inside their yes and then else I’ve met with and talk to them spend time. I make sure I talk to them before we release the name waste your time and had to come up, and I don’t have anything you want. If we can get information about the what the witnesses said inside or any discount on, the suspect will let her we’ll ever pios, let you know, but I don’t want to waste your time by bringing if we don’t everything new Masjid. I I don’t remember in my 41 years having a mass shooting Ron was a hard-working, dedicated Sheriff’s Sergeant. He was totally committed. He gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went from a. He went in to save lives. To save other people, relatives friends right now, I believe we have a victims hotline and the. I also give you the victims hotline number where the where they can call to check and just make sure that they went to multiple hospitals. Okay, thank you so real quick that hotline number for people to call is area code 805 for 650-6650. That number again is area code. 805-465-6650, 805-465-6650,
