11 shot at US bar
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.
