THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. --

A mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks nightclub left nearly a dozen people wounded, including a Ventura County sheriff's deputy, authorities said Thursday morning.

The shooting happened around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday at Borderline Bar & Grill at 99 Rolling Oaks Dr.

Ventura County sheriff's officials said there were reports of an active shooter at the club.

During a press briefing, Capt. Garo Kuredjian said they confirmed at least 11 people were injured, including the deputy. Their conditions were unknown.

"We're still looking for the shooter. We can't confirm the shooter is in custody at this point," he said.

He added that there may be more victims and that the information was preliminary. He said "hundreds" were inside the bar when the gunfire erupted.

Witness John Hedge, of Moorpark, said he saw a suspect throwing smoke bombs into the front of the restaurant. He also said he saw a security guard get shot.

"I was at the front door and I was talking to my stepdad. I just started hearing these big pops. Pop, pop, pop. There was probably three or four, I hit the ground. I look up - the security guard is dead. Well, I don't want to say he was dead, but he was shot.
