Mass shooting at California bar: USA media reports

United States fire department officials have reported multiple injuries in a shooting at a bar and dance hall in southern California.

Several witnesses told ABC 7 the man was armed with a handgun opened fire inside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks.

A gunman shot a sheriff's deputy and around six other people inside a country-and-western bar and dance club in Southern California on Wednesday night, authorities said.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference early Thursday that a sheriff's deputy was also shot and taken to a hospital.

It's thought that a man opened fire at the bar with a semi-automatic gun at about 11.20pm. "These poeple have never hurt anyone in their lives, they are just kids", he said.

One witness said there were multiple shots fired inside the bar.

They said that soon after the gunman opened fire, victims were running to a nearby petrol station to get help. Law enforcement and emergency crews were flooding the scene. I look up - the security guard is dead. The suspect reportedly threw smoke bombs inside the bar.

Tonight's event was aimed at college students, according to the bar's website and Instagram page.

Further information on the extent of the victims' injuries has not been released.
