  • Emergency services at the scene

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

It was college night and country two-step lessons were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website.

Police officers were called to Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks at around 11:20 p.m., The Ventura County Star reported.

He said the man set off smoke grenades inside before opening fire.

"I don't know the status of those six people or if one of those six is the shooter, it's still very fluid".

He said he heard from people inside that they were hiding in bathrooms and the attic of the bar.

Dozens of police cars and emergency service vehicles were spotted at the scene in Thousand Oaks around 11.20pm local time on Wednesday.
