Thousand Oaks mass shooting: Multiple people injured at California bar

The LA Times reports the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force had been dispatched to the scene.

The Los Angeles Times reports an event for college students was due to be held at the venue tonight.

"I do hope to give updates about the six and the status of the shooter".

The gunman shouted something, but Ryan could not hear what he said.

An emotional witness told local broadcaster KABC-TV the gunman appeared to be shooting at random. The deputy was said to have non-life-threatening injuries.


Another witness said he saw a security guard being shot as well as a female cashier, before he also fled.

"There was just young poeple, 18, 19, 20, just having a great time, and this maniac came in and started shooting people for no reason at all".

"It was chaos, people jumping out of windows, jumping over gates, just trying to get out", one man said. "It still feels like I didn't do what I should have done".

Police are responding to reports of a mass shooting at bar in Thousand Oaks, California. Police are saying they do not have the person responsible in custody. Law enforcement and emergency crews were flooding the scene. "Multiple ambulances requested", the department wrote on Twitter.

The bar is a country-themed bar known for its large dance floor and live music events, according to its website.
