Mass Shooting In Thousand Oaks, CA: As Least 12 Dead, Smoke Grenades Tossed at Borderline Bar and Grill

At least 12 people were killed and at least 10 others injured when a gunman burst into a packed Southern California bar, tossing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said. 
The lone suspect was found dead inside the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, police said. 
Hundreds were inside the bar when police responded to the scene in Thousand Oaks, about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, just before midnight local time. 
Teylor Whittler was celebrating a friend's birthday at the bar's college night when she heard the gunshots. 
"A bunch of people dog-piled on top of each other," she told "Good Morning America." "Everyone just yelled, 'Run, he's coming!'" 
"There were at least 50 people that all tried getting up at once and running out the back door. I ended up getting caught in the ground and stumbled over by multiple people," Whittler said. 
"I got hit in the head by a stool that was being picked up to throw through a window, until some guy came up behind me and grabbed me and said, 'Get up, we have to go!'" 
She said multiple men around her blocked the group with their bodies "ready to take a bullet for every single one of us."

Sometimes you learn some valuable information in comments sections:
The bar is popular with police officers and firefighters, and that it is often busy on Wednesdays because it hosts a college night and allows students under 21 to enter. 
“It’s safe. It’s a safe place to be,” said Erika Sigman, a sophomore at Cal State Channel Island. “You can stay out all night at Borderline because there’s major security.”
