Action #2 – Thursday 11/8 – Procession at 10 am. for Sgt. Ron Helus, T.O. vigil information and more…
There will be a procession at 10 a.m. today for Sgt. Ron Helus, (Facebook post here) who was shot and killed during last night’s tragedy at Borderline. He will be transported from Los Robles Hospital to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s office in Ventura. The procession will travel down Lynn Road to U.S. 101. If you’re interested in witnessing the procession, please be advised that there will be intermittent road closures along the route.
