11 shot at US bar

The New Zealand Herald - - World -

At least 11 peo­ple, in­clud­ing one of­fi­cer, were shot last night when a sus­pect opened fire in a crowded South­ern Cal­i­for­nia bar. Po­lice told the Los An­ge­les Times that at least 30 shots were fired at the Bor­der­line Bar & Grill in Thou­sand Oaks, which is about 60km west of Los An­ge­les. The ex­tent of the vic­tim's in­juries had not been re­leased. The Times re­ported that there were mul­ti­ple re­ports of shots fired and peo­ple hit. Au­thor­i­ties were treat­ing the in­ci­dent as an ac­tive shooter scene. The Times re­ported that the FBI’s Joint Ter­ror­ism Task Force had been dis­patched to the scene. Aubrey Ryan, 27, told the Times that a man came in and started shoot­ing at the ceil­ing. The gun­man shouted some­thing but Ryan could not hear what he said. An­other wit­ness, who re­fused to give his name, told the Times that some­one ran into the bar and started fir­ing what ap­peared to be a black pis­tol. “He shot a lot, at least 30 times. I could still hear gun­shots after every­one left,” the man said. Bor­der­line is a coun­try mu­sic bar that hosts live mu­sic events.
