The bar was hosting a college country music night on Wednesday, according to its website.
Police say there is no threat to the public following shooting.
“I don’t know the status of the shooter if he’s been captured but we don’t think he’s outside of the bar and grill,” said Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Garo Kuredjian.
“We don’t feel that the shooter has left the bar and grill, so whatever it is was contained inside the bar and grill. We don’t feel there is a threat to the public outside. I don’t know if he’s been transported or if he’s been captured,” Kuredjian said, referring to the gunman.
