Many more people had more minor injuries, including some that came from their attempt to flee, Dean said. He said the motive of the shooting and the identity of the shooter were not known.

Several people from inside the bar told TV stations that a tall man wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered first shot at a person working the door, then opened fire, seemingly at random, at the people inside.

"It's a horrific scene in there".

In a press conference early Thursday morning, the Ventura County Sheriff confirmed the gunman was also killed and there is no threat to the community of Thousand Oaks. We certainly will look at that option.

The gunman was found dead at the scene.

"Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff's sergeant who was totally committed", Dean said, "and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives".

The venue in the quiet, upscale Thousand Oaks suburb had been hosting an event for college students, with possibly several hundred young people in attendance, Captain Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff's office said earlier.

Dean said around 10 other people were wounded in the shooting.

The fire was opened in the school Borderline Bar & Grill at about 23:20 local time (09:20 Moscow time).

Other customers scrambled to find safety in other parts of the bar. "One bar stool and straight through a window", he told reporters. Great bravery shown by police.

"A gentleman, who walked in through the front door, shot the girl that was right behind the counter", he added. It's not clear at this time who shot who when officers arrived to the scene of the country club, Borderline Bar.

The shooter took at least 30 shots. "I could still hear gunshots after everyone left", the Times quoted the man as saying.

Tayler Whitler, 19, said she was on the dance floor with her friends nearby when she saw the gunman shooting and heard screams to "get down".

Past year a country music festival called Route 91 in Las Vegas was the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern USA history.

The suspect in the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting is 28-year-old Ian David Long. "If they survived that, they will survive this".
