Multiple injuries in mass shooting at California nightclub

Its website listed Wednesday's event as college country night between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m.

He told reporters: "When our deputies arrive on the scene they attempted to neutralise that threat, I can't tell you if it was neutralised or not".

"The gunman used an automatic weapon and also threw in some sort of smoke bombs in to the crowd in the club", he said.

Hedge said he managed to run out the front door as the shooter made his way to the back of the restaurant.

A gunman opened fire at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday evening, ABC News reported.

No other information was immediately available.

Patrons were seen being led out of the bar by deputies.




At least six people have been shot, including a deputy sheriff and a doorman, after the shooter stormed in the venue wearing a black trench coat, armed with a "high capacity" gun and smoke grenades.

Holden Harrah, a young man who saw the incident, cried as he told CNN that a place where he goes every week to have fun with friends had been a scene of carnage.

Pictures and video footage show firefighters and first responders flooding the scene after multiple injuries were reported.

The extent of the victims' injuries are now unknown after the shooting at the student-filled Borderline bar and grill.

Authorities urged the public to avoid the area.

It has been "quite some time" since there was a shooting of any kind in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, just across the county line.
