Mass shooting reported at bar in Thousand Oaks, California

Initial reports indicated that a man had opened fire with a semi-automatic gun at about 11.20pm.

U.S. fire department officials have reported multiple injuries in a shooting at a bar and dance hall in southern California.

Multiple people have been injured in a suspected mass shooting at a California bar.

Police say at least six people, including one officer, were injured when gunfire broke out the Borderline Bar and Grill at about 23:20 local time on Wednesday.

The gunman is still on the loose, reported ABC7 Eyewitness News, which showed images of the Borderline Bar and Grill, in Thousand Oaks, California, surrounded by dozens of police vehicles.

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

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

Around 30 shots were fired, officers at the scene claim.

At least four ambulances responded to treat multiple victims, the Ventura County Star reports.

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

Authorities urged the public to avoid the area.

People say he threw "smoke grenades all over the place".

It is reported to be "college night" at the bar, with some suggesting the attack was aimed at university students.
