At Least 12 Killed In Mass Shooting At California Bar
At least 12 people have been killed at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California after a gunman opened fire last night.
A Ventura sheriff’s sergeant was one of the first on the scene about three minutes later and was shot as he entered the bar and died at the hospital, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters. Eleven other victims were found inside.
Approximately 10 others were shot, the Associated Press reports. Geoff confirmed the surviving victims inside the bar had “different levels of injury” and were transported to area hospitals.
“It’s a horrific scene in there,” he said, according to CNN. “There is blood everywhere and the suspect is part of that, and I didn’t want to get that close and disturb the scene and possibly disturb the investigation.”
“It’s part of the horrors that are happening in our country and everywhere,” he added. “I think it’s impossible to put any logic or sense to the senseless. This community in my 41 years had never experienced anything like this.”
