California shooting: what we know about the gunman

Witnesses told CNN the attacker had a large handgun, wore a black trench coat and glasses and threw smoke grenades inside bar.

"A lot of people were just running around, young kids, and I just heard the gunshots going even as I was running to the auto", Dominguez said while fighting back tears. He described what they told him to CNN affiliate KABC. It's something I had been setting myself up for, and then after the event, it really went into overdrive. "Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot".

Video shot by a survivor shows the moments of terror as a gunman opened fire inside a crowded California bar.

Federal Bureau of Investigation data suggests that Thousand Oaks is the third-safest city in America.

"Borderline was our safe space after, for lack of a better term, it was our home for the probably 30 or 45 of us who are all from the greater Ventura County area who were in Vegas". Some dived through windows while others hid in restrooms.

Officials said that shots were still being fired when the first officers arrived at the scene. Around 11:20 p.m., authorities said a lone gunman began opening fire at the scene. They went to the house, they talked to him.

The bar is near several colleges, and is a popular spot for students Wednesday nights. The Western-style bar hosts theme nights such as country, salsa and swing dancing. "I don't know if she is alive", he said.

"Our organization's thoughts and prayers are with the families and the victims that were affected by this awful act that took place in our area", McVay said.

Here's what we know about the late Wednesday shooting. Whitler said then she heard "Get up, he's coming!" and people trampled on each other to get out.

Nick Steinwender, Cal Lutheran student body president, told KTLA-TV he immediately started receiving messages about the shooting, and he and his roommate went to the scene to offer rides back to campus or moral support. "Everyone was just trying to get out".

"From what I heard, the gunman started shooting at the front desk".

People comfort each other after the shootings in Thousand Oaks, California, about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. The city "is considered one of the safest cities in the country", according to Mayor Andy Fox.

"We are consistently ranked one of the highest with respect to the lowest crime rate per capita".

In a joint statement, the couple said: "Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner".
