According to a report by Mail Online, the gunman stormed the bar wearing a black trench coat armed with a ‘high capacity’ pistol and smoke grenades at about 11.20pm.

Police in a statement, said the threat is still active and the shooter is still at large after opening fire at the venue.

A Ventura County Sheriff’s Office official said approximately 30 shots had been fired inside the building.

He said people were hiding from the shooter in bathrooms and attic spaces, while others who managed to escape fled to nearby gas stations for medical help, reports claim.

The attack has been upgraded to a level 2 mass casualty incident, according to local reports.

A SWAT team are already surrounding the venue in their formations, while the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is also at the scene.

One witness told ABC7:

‘I was at the front door talking to my stepdad. I heard these big pops.

‘There were three or four and I hit the ground. The security guard was dead and the man had a handgun.

‘He threw in smoke bombs and he kept firing. People threw chairs out of the windows to try to get away.

‘The gunman had glasses and a black jacket. He had a big hand gun.’
