Mass shooting at California country and western bar

Mass shooting at California country and western bar

As per latest reports, authorities are saying that the gunman is dead after he injured at least 11 people.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said he could not confirm if anyone has died.

It was college night at the bar, with country two-step lessons being offered to Wednesday customers - most of which were university students.

Victims ran to a nearby petrol station to get help shortly after the gunman opened fire, police said. "Multiple injuries reported", the Ventura County Fire Department tweeted.

A Los Angeles CBS affiliate reported that the officer sustained non-life threatening injuries.

A distraught witness who was inside the bar with his stepson during the shooting told KABC-TV those inside the venue were mostly teens.


At least 11 people, including a sheriff's deputy, were injured in a mass shooting at a restaurant in Thousand Oaks, about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, authorities said early Thursday.

One person was seen being taken out on a stretcher and placed in an ambulance, and one deputy was shot.

Authorities urged the public to avoid the area. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

He said responding deputies could hear gunshots as they arrived on scene. "I just started hearing these big pops", the witness, John Hedge, told the local ABC affiliate.

Witnesses told CNN the attacker had a large handgun, wore a black trench coat and glasses and threw smoke grenades inside bar.
