A mass shooting took place on November 7, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, California, United States, at the Borderline Bar and Grill, a country-western bar frequented by college students.[4][5][6] Twelve people were killed, including a police officer. One other person was shot, while twenty-four were injured in other ways.

The attacker was also found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the bar and was identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long.[7]

At approximately 11:20 p.m. PST (07:20 UTC), a gunman described as a bearded, tattooed male dressed entirely in black and armed with a .45 caliber Glock 21 semi-automatic pistol with an illegal extended magazine shot a security guard standing outside the building.[3][8][7][9] He then stepped inside and shot other guards and employees before moving to shoot patrons inside the club, firing approximately 30 rounds and throwing smoke bombs.[3][4][8] With more than 200 patrons inside, the bar was hosting a regularly scheduled College Country Night event and was particularly popular among students in the area, including Pepperdine University,[10][11][12] California Lutheran University, and California State University Channel Islands.[13]

Three minutes after receiving the first 911 calls, Ventura County Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer arrived at the scene.[14] Hearing gunshots coming from the building, Helus ran inside and was immediately shot by the gunman. The Highway Patrol officer dragged Helus to safety outside, but he died from his injuries several hours later. A SWAT team and other supporting police officers arrived on the scene shortly thereafter.[14]

After officers entered the building, the gunman was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an office next to the entryway.[15] Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were deployed to further investigate the scene.[16][4]


Among the deceased victims of the attack there are nine college students, including a survivor of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. The three other victims are a sheriff's sergeant who was the first emergency responder on the scene, a 48-years old bouncer and security guard and a 33-years old Marine Corps veteran.[17][18][19][20]

Several of those at the bar had also been present at the Route 91 Harvest festival, the site of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting.[7][21]


Within hours of the shooting, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean identified the suspected gunman as Ian David Long, age 28, a United States Marine Corps veteran from Newbury Park, a town inside the Thousand Oaks city limits.[22] His gun was reportedly purchased legally.[23] A neighbor of Long claimed that he suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder as a result of his time in the military, and that they had "no idea what he was doing with a gun".[24][25] Prior to the shooting, Long had been living with his mother.[26]
