A gunman killed 12 people, including a sheriff's deputy, late Wednesday night when he opened fire on revelers in the Borderline Bar and Grill, a popular venue with college students for dancing in the suburb of Thousand Oaks, California. Here's what we know, according to various news reports:
The gunman was armed with a Glock .45 handgun, purchased legally, and some type of smoke device. The gun usually holds 10 rounds, but the gunman used an extended magazine in this shooting.
It was the fourth shooting in the United States in two weeks. The attacks include the death of two women at a yoga class in Tallahassee, Florida, and two shoppers gunned down in the parking lot and inside a Kroger in Jefferson, Kentucky. Twelve days ago, a gunman killed 11 worshippers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
