Captain Garo Kuredjian: 'There is no threat to the general public' Police say there are "multiple fatalities" after a shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California. Reports say the shooting began at about 23:20 local time on Wednesday at the Borderline Bar and Grill about 40 miles (65km) north-west of Los Angeles.
Officials have confirmed the suspect is now dead, and have said there were at least 11 victims in the attack. At least 200 people were reportedly inside the bar attending a college country music night at the time. "When deputies arrived they heard shots being fired, it was an active shooter situation," Ventura County Sheriff's office spokesman Eric Buschow said. "They entered the location and I can tell you there are multiple fatalities, multiple injuries, among the victims is one of our sheriff's deputies that responded in that initial call, as well as the shooter." Police have said the number of injured is expected to rise.

200 people in a place isn’t a “bar”
Lounge or nightclub maybe, no?
I’ll read full article when there’s more info but places like this in NYC, the front door guys or bouncers, one of them is usually an off duty cop with a gun.
ABC reports 12 dead.
The gunman used a semi-automatic weapon in the attack, according to the Ventura County Star.
“The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place,” a different witness told KABC.
Currently stating 13 dead - includes a police officer.
Coulters Law countdown started when?
Toll also includes the shooter.
Every bad guy knows you shoot the uniformed guy with a gun first.
Mid term is over
useful idiot is called up to perform.
President Trump disarmed them in Pittsbutgh when he publically stated things would be very, very different if there had been a gun INSIDE the synagogue.
Notice how quickly the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting disappeared ?
Yeah that would make sense.
NYC being what it is, there are SO MANY bouncers in a place, but even if they are armed, that may not mean anything.
And honestly, I’m not POSITIVE they’re allowed to be armed when working in clubs.
I carry everywhere but you could to pay me enough to do so wearing a uniform.
I looked it up. They CAN carry a gun.
And bouncers here don’t wear uniforms but are just as easy to spot.
Uniform? You’re a walking target, you’re right.
The California Highway Patrol was also at the scene. A Ventura County SWAT team was at the scene along with the FBI and ATF agents. The bomb squad was also requested to the scene as a precaution.
The Bar Hosts a College Night Every Wednesday From 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Officials Said at Least 30 Shots Were Fired During the Incident
According to the Ventura County Star, initial reports to police from 911 callers described the shooter as a Middle Eastern man in his early 20s with a beard wearing black clothing. Other witnesses said the shooter was either white or Hispanic. Police have not confirmed those details.
How can that be?
I thought California had tough gun control laws.
Democrats are supppsed to have gun violence licked. Apparently not.
Loads of info. Thanks.
So he’s either white, Hispanic or middle eastern.
boy is eyewitness testimony unreliable.
I watched a movie yesterday that i had seen many times and I was SURE about a line that was in the movie.
Loved the line.
Only it wasn’t in the movie in that scene.
It would have BEEN a good line But it was never said.
The human mind is a unique phenomenon that is hard to explain.
....it may be 24 hrs before the media can set the agenda
“200 people in a place isnt a bar. Lounge or nightclub maybe, no?”
It’s a big C&W dance club. My good friend’s (our minister’s wife) son and SIL are State Police in that area. I pray they’re OK. Will check in a few hours.
He was wearing some sort of face mask or ski mask.
Apparently he is not a black man or a woman.
The first report of bearded muzzie in black may be the ‘real’ report and the other descriptions were tossed in for PC cover by the reporter or the detectives.
So what about the reports of a “Middle Eastern male?”
