Ventura County Sheriff's deputies responded to the Borderline Bar and Grill, some 40 miles west of Los Angeles, at about 11:30 p.m.

A gunman has opened fire at a country music bar in the city of Thousand Oaks, California, injuring multiple people.

President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning to say he been briefed on the shooting, describing it as "terrible", and praising the bravery of the police officers involved. Dean said at least 10 additional people were shot and wounded.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean says the suspected gunman died at the scene from what they believe is a self-inflicted wound. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this hard time", the department added.

"I mind my own business and they did theirs too", he said in a brief telephone interview.

A college country music night was under way when the suspect, apparently dressed in black, entered the bar and opened fire. "But I've learned, it doesn't matter what community you're in, it doesn't matter how safe your community is".

People screamed and fled to all corners of the bar, while a few people threw barstools through the windows and helped dozens escape, witnesses said. The 22-year-old went to Borderline Bar & Grill every Wednesday to line dance, his dad said. "Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner".

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in bathrooms and the attic of the bar.

Nick Steinwender, who is part of the university's student government, said his friends were inside the bar when the shooting started. I heard these big pops. "You know, I think it's going to be something that we're going to have to come together and move past".

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

"He fired the first shot", the stepfather said. Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot.

"I tried to get as many people to cover as I could", Knapp said.

A neighbour, who would only identify himself by his last name, Mr Hanson, said Long lived with his mother.

Bar patron describes what she saw when shooting broke out in Thousand Oaks.

"It was really, really really shocking", Whitler told KABC-TV as she stood with her father in the Borderline parking lot.
