Gunman wounds 11 at California bar's college night

At Least 12 Killed in California Bar Shooting

Shootings of any kind are very rare in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Los Angeles, just across the county line.

"Dean said that the dead police officer, who was named as Ron Helus and had been on the force for 29 years, was among the first on the scene".

The bar was hosting a college country music night.

Multiple people have been injured in a shooting at a bar in southern California, authorities said.

Early reports from witnesses suggest that the suspect used a smoke bomb when he entered the bar before he began shooting.

Matt Wennerstron, a 20 year old college student and regular at the bar, said the shooter fired a short-barreled pistol that apparently had a 10-15 round magazine.

The fire was opened in the school Borderline Bar & Grill at about 23:20 local time (09:20 Moscow time).

"He said he and others smashed their way out of the bar onto a balcony and then jumped down to safety". Great bravery shown by police.

A man who says he was in the bar tells ABC news reports that he saw a man shoot into the crowd.

"He gave it his all, and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives, to save other people", Dean told reporters early Thursday. It's not clear at this time who shot who when officers arrived to the scene of the country club, Borderline Bar. "There were probably 12 shots before I got out the front door".

The gunman at the country dance bar was tall and wearing all black with a hood over his head and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations at the scene.

Nick Steinwender, student body president at nearby California Lutheran University, rushed to the scene when he heard about a shooting at the bar where he knew friends and fellow students were.

Police tell the Los Angeles Times that at least 30 shots were fired at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles.
