A sheriff's captain says eleven people were shot late Wednesday when a suspect opened fire in a crowded Southern California bar.

"I can tell you there are at least six victims inside, including a deputy who was injured". Multiple people were wounded after a gunman fired multiple shots in Thousand Oaks.

"We're still looking for the shooter", Kuredjian said.

Several injured in shooting at a bar in southern California in United States, police said.

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

The Ventura County Fire Department confirmed just after midnight that there had been reports of "multiple injuries" at the bar.

Witnesses told ABC News that a man fired several shots from a handgun before tossing smoke grenades and firing again.

The bar is located about 40 miles west of Los Angeles and describes itself as a western-style bar with a spacious dance floor used for theme nights such as country, salsa and swing.

Witnesses said many of those inside were college students.

A witness told ABC7: 'I was at the front door talking to my stepdad.

This story is still developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.

The incident was reported at the Borderline Bar and Grill in the town of Thousand Oaks, a quiet, upscale residential suburb of Los Angeles, as it hosted an event for college students.
