Thousand Oaks nightclub shooting: 12 dead, including a police sergeant

A tall, hooded gunman dressed in black and covering his face with a bandana opened fire late Wednesday during “college night” at a crowded country dance bar in Southern California, killing 11 people and a sheriff’s sergeant.

The shooter, apparently firing at random, also died in the rampage. Police said they have identified the gunman but did not give out a name.

Authorities said the gunfire broke out at the Borderline Bar & Grill, a country-western dance bar in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. Hundreds of people fled in terror, including some who used bar stools to break windows and escape.

“It’s a horrific scene in there,” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told a news conference in the parking lot of the bar. “There’s blood everywhere.”

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press the suspect was 29 years old, armed with a .45-caliber handgun and used a smoke device. The official declined to provide any other details, speaking on condition of anonymity for lack of authorization to publicly discuss the investigation.

Dean said it was not immediately clear how the gunman died.

    Well done america. How much more does it take? Increase gun control and join the rest of the civilised world. So many poor inocent people lose their lives every day. Best wishes to friends and family of the victims, may they rest in peace.

    I just heard about this event. That is a shame to hear. What a tragedy. As a country music fan, I could have been there myself. All these shootings, injustices, robberies, etc is just proof that times are getting harder and more violent as days go by. Biblical prophecy becoming clearer and clearer everyday. This isn't about legal gun ownership because anyone can buy a gun off the streets, especially with gangs out there. These are about the time of the end of this system of things. Horrible, especially hearing about a colleague being killed as well.

    Ppl talk about gun control as if it works but in the UK there are news articles about how kids get stabbed on their way home from schools, I’ve watched a documentary on it and you think guns are the problem! Ppl will still find ways to murder
