The veteran California police sensor who fought down when he accused of a packed bar to stop the thousands of suckler masses was killed by friendly fire, according to a new report.
Autopsy results showed that Sgt. Ron Helus was struck by six bullets inside the Borderline Bar and Grill – five fired by gunman, Ian David Long, and one of a California Highway Patrol Officer, local station KTLA 5 reported.
Shots shot by gunman “caused serious injuries but potentially survivable damage,” told prime medical investigator Chris R. Young to the outlet.
However, the sixth bullet – which struck Helus in the heart – was restored during surgery at the hospital after the shot. The FBI analysis found that the bullet was a rifle rounded by a motorway police officer who had entered the bar with Helus.
“This is sad news and a tragedy, but ultimately it was the most serious harm that occurred,” Young said. .
“We know that Ventura County Sheriff Sergeant Ron Helus and a CHP officer went deep into the bar, engaged the suspects who waited before the officers arrived,” L.D. Maples, a manager with the California Highway Patrol Coastal Division, said in a statement issued to the station. “While Sgt. Helus and the officer’s actions prevented suspicion of killing more people, tragically under the hard but short fire brigade that followed, a round fired by our officer against the suspect struck Sgt. Helus.”
Twelve people died in the massacre of Folk High School, including an American Navy teacher, a Pepperdine student, the bar’s bouncer and one of the employee busboys and food runners.
There is no evidence that one of the other victims was hit by the officer’s shooting, according to the report.
“It’s important to remember that the horrible circumstances at Borderline Bar and Grill on Wednesday night, just a month ago today, were caused by the evil act of one man: the man who killed 1
2 people and injured 22 others, said one newspaper at the conference at the Friday Conference in Ventura County, according to the station. “He created the sole violence and he alone carries responsibility for his action.”
Long died of a apparently self-propelled shotwind.
