12 killed in California bar mass shooting, gunman found dead

Friday, 09 November 2018 | PTI | Washington/Los Angeles

A gunman dressed in black sprayed bullets inside a crowded dance bar popular with college students on Wednesday night, killing at least 12 people, including a police officer, in California’s Thousand Oaks city in one of the “horrific” mass shooting incidents in the US.

The gunman, who also injured nearly a dozen others, was found dead inside the Borderline Bar and Grill on the outskirts of Los Angeles although it was not immediately clear if he was killed by officers or shot himself. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean described the incident as “horrific.”

“It’s a horrific scene in there, 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,” he said, adding that the motive of the shooter — whose identify was not known — is still unclear and investigators had not found any type of assault rifle within the bar. President Donald Trump said he has been “fully briefed on the terrible shooting in California.”
