A mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, in Southern California, USA, is in progress and 12 guests plus a police officer were killed. The attacker was found dead.

Terrified revelers used bar stools to break second-floor windows and jump to safety to escape the dance bar, where the gunman was later found dead. Those killed in the shooting Wednesday night also included 12 people inside the bar and a sheriff’s sergeant who was the first officer inside the door, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said.

A law enforcement official said the 29-year-old man deployed a smoke device and used a .45-caliber handgun when he opened fire.

The popular country western dance bar and restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors.

insiders say some of the guests were also survivors of the Las Vegas shooting.

Most victims were students of Pepperdine University.

The University has determined that multiple Pepperdine students were on site at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks. At this time, the University is working to identify and provide support to those students.
