Active shooter wounds at least 6 at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks

When deputies responded to the scene, shots were still being fired, Ventura County Sheriff's Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference.

On Wednesday night, students had gathered for college country night, which was between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m., according to the bar's website.

Officials have said the man was 29 and deployed a smoke device and used a.45-calibre handgun when he opened fire.

At least 11 people have been shot in a California bar hosting a college country music night.

Pepperdine University confirmed several students were at the bar during the shooting.

Cal Lutheran has more than 3,000 undergraduate students and more than 1,300 graduate students.

The gunman was tall and wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations.

Authorities said the man was heavily tattooed but apparently didn't have identification on him. At least 12 people were killed. He is survived by a wife and son.

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant, he was totally committed". Police said around 10 other people have been wounded.




Video accessed by the AP showed law enforcement officers and vehicles speeding to the scene and people running from the bar.

Tom Hanson, 70, who lives next door to Long and his mother, said Thursday that he called the police about six months ago when he heard "heavy-duty banging" and shouting coming from the Longs' home. The sheriff's department and the wider community are mourning the "hero" officer today, who was one of the 12 people killed in the mass shooting in Southern California.

He said he heard from people inside who were hiding in toilets and the attic of the bar.

One couple told CBS2's Tom Wait that their daughter had been injured in the shooting. "Within a split second, everybody yelled 'get down, ' " she said.

Police arrived at the scene at about 11.20pm, at which point shots were still being fired. Another witness said: "This maniac came in". I saw him point to the back of the cash register.and he just kept firing.

"It was just young people having a great time and this maniac came in and started shooting people for no reason at all". They carried us and then I reunited with my friends, and I was lucky to get out. I just started hearing these big pops. We found this pic of Long at a cemetery that appears to be in the L.A./Thousand Oaks area.
