A Southern California sheriff says "there's blood everywhere" at the country dance hall where 13 people were killed in a mass shooting last night. The Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks was hosting an event and reportedly packed with hundreds of college students when shots rang out before midnight. Eyewitness accounts say the shooter was dressed in black and wearing a trench coat, and that he tossed a smoke grenade into the bar before opening fire with a handgun. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean says some inside the bar broke windows to escape the gunfire, and some hid in the attic and in restrooms. Shots were still being fired when officers arrived on the scene. At least 13 people were killed, including the gunman, and over a dozen others were injured in the attack. Among the dead is Sergeant Ron Helus, a long-time member of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.
