Multiple people were injured late Wednesday when a gunman opened fire at a bar in Southern California, authorities told ABC News.

The incident was reported at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the town of Thousand Oaks.

He said responding deputies could hear gunshots as they arrived on scene.

Police tell the Ventura County Star that the initial report came around 11:20pm local time (8:20pm NZT) that a man opened fire at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles.

One witness saw the suspect tossing smoke bombs in front of the restaurant before watching a security guard get shot.

The Los Angeles Times reports an event for college students was due to be held at the venue tonight.
