A procession for slain deputy Sgt. Ron Helus is being planned for 1 p.m. ET, Capt. Garo Kuredjian, spokesperson of Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, tells CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS.
The procession will start at Los Robles Hospital and end at the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Sgt. Helus was killed after entering the Borderline Bar & Grill during last night's shooting. Helus died at a hospital, police said.
"He went into save lives, to save other people." Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said of Helus, his voice breaking at a news conference early Thursday.
"He was totally committed, he gave his all, and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero," he said.
