At least 13 killed in California bar shooting including gunman

08 November 2018

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started.

Police cars are seen outside a country music bar and dance hall in Thousand Oaks, west of Los Angeles, after a gunman barged into a large, crowded venue and opened fire late November 7, 2018, killing at least 11 people, United States police said.

"It's been a rough night for all of us", Buschow said, according to the report.

A deputy sheriff and a doorman were among the wounded. The alleged perpetrator then threw smoke bombs into the bar and continued shooting.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said late Wednesday that it was still "a very active scene".

"The thoughts of every #NYPD member this morning are with the families & colleagues of all those killed or injured in the shooting inside a Thousand Oaks, Calif., bar - 12 innocent lives taken, including the first Ventura County cop on the scene: Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran", New York Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill said.

"There was just young people like young, 18, 19, 20 just having a great time".

"The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place", a different witness told KABC.

"It was just aimless shooting in any direction, and he pointed and just started shooting at the crowd that I was in", Spady said.

"I'm afraid that Cody ran to the gunman instead of away from the gunman".

John Hedge, who was at the bar with his stepfather, told CNN affiliate KABC that he hit the ground after hearing three or four popping sounds.

"I looked over and he was shooting at people".

"I can't tell you much about the shooter at this point", Kuredjian said.

The Ventura County Fire Department tweeted, "Please stay away from area. Thank you to Law Enforcement". Multiple injuries reported. Details still being determined.

He told reporters when officers arrived at the bar to reports of shots being fired, they could hear gunfire.

The 23-year-old rushed to the bar, which holds college country music nights on Wednesdays, where he called a friend who was also at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire, killing 59 people and wounding hundreds.

Several people from inside the bar told TV stations that a tall man wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered first shot at a person working the door, then opened fire, seemingly at random, at the people inside.

"With over 2,500 square feet of wide open dance floor, Borderline has provided a haven for country line dancing folks of all ages equipped with pool tables", the website says.
