MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump responded to a mass shooting at a Southern California bar, calling it “terrible” and saying he has been “fully briefed” on the incident.

At least 12 people were killed and 10 others injured when a gunman burst into the packed bar in Thousand Oaks, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, tossing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said.

The lone suspect was also found dead inside the Borderline Bar and Grill that was hosting a college night on Wednesday night, police said. Authorities are working to determine his identity and motive.

I have been fully briefed on the terrible shooting in California. Law Enforcement and First Responders, together with the FBI, are on scene. 13 people, at this time, have been reported dead. Likewise, the shooter is dead, along with the first police officer to enter the bar….
