Authorities said shots were fired and people hit at the Borderline Bar and Grill, a country-western dance bar in Thousand Oaks, California. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – A tall, hooded gunman dressed in black and covering his face with a bandana opened fire late Wednesday during College Night at a crowded country dance bar in Southern California, killing 12 people, including a sheriff's sergeant. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean identified the gunman, who later killed himself, as Ian David Long, 28, a Marine veteran, from Newbury Park, a town inside the Thousand Oaks city limits. The melee erupted at the Borderline Bar and Grill, a country-western dance bar in Thousand Oaks, about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. Hundreds of people fled in terror, including some who used bar stools to break windows and escape. "It’s a horrific scene in there,” said Dean, who choked up at one point while speaking to reporters in the bar's parking lot. “There’s blood everywhere.”
