___ RON HELUS: 'COP'S COP' Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus was talking to his wife when calls started coming in about a shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill.
Sgt. Eric Buschow, who said Helus was a friend, described him as a "cop's cop."
Helus took up fly fishing a few years ago and loved pursuing the hobby in the Sierra Nevada mountains with his grown son, Buschow said.
