Multiple injuries at mass shooting at Southern California bar in Thousand Oaks

An unnamed witness told the newspaper that someone ran into the bar around 11.30pm (local time) and started shooting what looked to be a black pistol.

Police reported that a California Highway Patrol officer had engaged a suspect.

Authorities say multiple people were injured at a shooting at a bar in Southern California on Wednesday night.

The Ventura country fire department tweeted that they were responding to a report of shooting in the city of Thousand Oaks in South California.

Pictures and video footage show firefighters and first responders flooding the scene after multiple injuries were reported.

Thousand Oaks is located in Ventura County, which is just west of Los Angeles.

Witnesses tell ABC News that a man fired several shots from a handgun before tossing smoke bombs and starting to fire again.

"He shot a lot, at least 30 times".

He could not immediately provide information on the extent of the victims' injuries.

They said that soon after the gunman opened fire, victims were running to a nearby petrol station to get help.

"The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place", a different witness told KABC.

It is thought the gunman may still be at large and at least police officer is injured.

Authorities have urged the public to avoid the area and that roads are being blocked.
