Borderline, which bills itself as the “biggest dance floor in town,” had been hosting an event called “College Country Night” when the shooting occurred.
A witness told KABC-TV that there were many young people “having a great time” in the bar when a man entered and “started shooting.” The witness, who escaped unharmed with his stepson, said he saw the gunman shoot multiple people.
