  • Mass shooting at bar in Thousand Oaks CA dozens reportedly injured incl police officer

The gunman was dead inside the bar, Ventura County Sheriff's Sergeant Eric Buschow said, but he did not say how he died. Newsom said he supports people's right to bear arms, but he is concerned about gun violence and thinks California should lead the way on gun controls.

He described the attacker as a bearded man in a black jacket and hat.

"There are no words", Savannah Stafseth, who was outside the bar when the shooting began, told the Times.

He added that Long had had previous contact with law enforcement.

The unnamed gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill around midnight on Wednesday, Nov. 7, injuring at least 11 people.

Borderline Bar was hosting a popular college country night event when the shooting happened Wednesday night.

The US has suffered from mass shootings for decades, but most of the deadliest have occurred in recent years. He was deployed to Afghanistan from November 16, 2010 to June 14, 2011, the Marine Corps said.

Dean said investigators had not found any type of assault rifle within the bar.

"He went in there to save lives".

A "dedicated" police officer who was one year from retirement died in the California bar massacre while trying to stop the gunman, it emerged today.

An injured man told local television channel KTLA: "We just dropped to the ground, we heard a lot of screaming".

The identity of the gunman is allegedly 28-year-old David Ian Long, a military veteran who apparently drove his mother's auto to the scene. He was a machine gunner.

He said he flagged down a nearby police officer and screamed "There's a shooter in there!".

Police have not identified a motive. Investigators are working out the details of what transpired, Dean added. "From what I heard, the gunman started shooting at the front desk".

ABC Reporter Marc Brown said: "We are hearing that some of the people who were at Borderline, were also at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, scene of the worst mass shooting in modern United States history". "Multiple injuries reported", the Ventura County Fire Department tweeted.

Shocked bystanders are treated at the scene in Thousand Oaks, California.

"Great bravery shown by police".

Helus died at about 2 a.m.at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks.

Dean said the suspect was found dead inside the bar with a gunshot wound, but that it was not clear who had fired that shot.
