Multiple injured in shooting at California bar, authorities say
Authorities say there were multiple injuries — including one officer — after a man opened fire in Southern California bar late Wednesday.
Police told the Los Angeles Times that at least 30 shots were fired at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 64 kilometres west of Los Angeles. The extent of the injuries has not yet been released.
The Times reports that there were multiple reports of shots fired and people hit. Law enforcement and emergency crews were flooding the scene.
Police told the Ventura County Star that the initial report came around 11:20 p.m. local time, while witnesses told ABC News that a man fired several shots from a handgun before tossing smoke bombs and starting to fire again.
Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said late Wednesday that it was still "a very active scene."
Authorities urged the public to avoid the area.
