A shooter opened fire at a California bar late Wednesday night, killing at least 12 people.
Rabat – About 100 people were at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, when the shooting took place at around 11:20 p.m., according to local authorities.
The dance bar was hosting an event for college students. Twelve people have died, and many were injured. The shooter, also dead, has not yet been identified.
One of the eyewitnesses, Matt Wennerstrom, 20, told the press that the hooded attacker first started to shoot at employees before moving on to shoot at random people.
“I grabbed as many people as I could and pulled them down underneath the pool table we were close to until he ran out of bullets for that magazine and had to reload,” Wennerstrom stated.
Police said the attacker might have used smoke bombs at the scene.
