Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus was among 12 people killed during a massacre at a nightclub in Thousand Oaks, California.

Ventura County sheriff Geoff Dean said there are "multiple other victims of different levels of injuries".

The bar has a college night on Wednesdays for ages 18 and up, according to its website.

According to CNN, witnesses said the suspect was wearing all black, and he walked onto the dance floor, pulled out a handgun and started shooting. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

Thousand Oaks is about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles and It's considered one of the safest large cities in the country, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime statistics, USA Today reported. Helus died early Thursday at a hospital.

"We must find a way to stop the senseless, and many times preventable killings that are robbing our country of innocent lives", he said on Twitter. Dean said at least 10 additional people were shot and wounded.

Authorities said the suspect has been shot dead.

"There were people in the middle dancing and just hanging out and having a good time and you hear that and you just know something's up", Erika Sigman said.

The FBI are now at the scene of the shooting and the bomb squad has been requested.
