Twelve people have been killed after a gunman opened fire in a bar and restaurant in California that was packed with teenagers.
Terrified people inside Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks hid under tables or dived out windows during the shooting which happened on a college night at roughly 11.20pm on Wednesday.
Sergeant Ron Helus was shot by the the trenchcoat-wearing gunman, who was armed with a semi-automatic weapon, and died at a nearby hospital.
He was a 29-year veteran of the force and planned to retire next year.
The gunman, dressed in black, was shot and killed inside the bar. American media have said he was a 29-year-old man.
One witness told ABC7 that the gunman walked up to a security guard shot him before entering the restaurant and opening fire at random.
He also threw smoke grenades around the dance floor area which was said to be 'very crowded'. Police have not confirmed the use of smoke devices.
CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed him on why he characterized a caravan of a few thousand Central American asylum seekers hundreds of miles from the US border “an invasion,” the president erupted.
“Honestly I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much higher,” Trump said, adding “That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough. Excuse me, that’s enough,” as Acosta tried to follow up.
But the CNN anchor persisted, asking the president about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
“That’s enough. Put down the mike. I’ll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN. You’re a very rude person. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way,” he said, referring to his spokeswoman, who frequently spars with reporters during press briefings.
A White House aide tried to take the microphone from Acosta, but he wouldn’t give it up, before finally relenting.
In a series of Tuesday tweets, O’Connor, 51, said that she doesn’t want anything to do with people who don’t share her personal religious beliefs.
“I’m terribly sorry,” she wrote. “What I’m about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it. But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again (if that’s what non-muslims are called). Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper declared that although there was still an opportunity for the Democrats to take the U.S. House of Representatives, it looked already like the much vaunted “blue wave” of Democratic votes was not manifesting itself.
“This is not a blue wave. It is entirely possible that the Democrats will regain control of the House today, but I have to say when you look at what’s going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave,” Tapper told Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening.
“This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents,” he explained.
Tapper cited several competitive races where Democrats were unable to unseat Republicans.
“It does look as though Republicans have been able to build something of a wall in certain parts of the country,” he added, “especially in these states that President Trump won.”
A Chinese warship warned a US Navy vessel in the South China Sea it would “suffer consequences” if it did not change course, internal military documents show, as new details and never-before-seen footage emerge of last month’s near collision in the disputed waters.
The Chinese Luyang destroyer issued the stern verbal message to the USS Decatur before sailing within 45 yards of the vessel in the September 30 incident that Washington labelled “unsafe and unprofessional”, according to a timeline obtained from Britain’s Ministry of Defence.
“You are on [sic] dangerous course,” the Chinese ship warned, according to the document obtained by the South China Morning Post via a freedom of information request. “If you don’t change course your [sic] will suffer consequences.”
“All of you showed the country how you did this! I’m so f*cking proud of you guys,” O’Rourke said in his concession speech Tuesday night.
Tlaib said of her relatives, “I want them to know, you know, as I uplift the families of the 13th Congressional District, I’ll uplift them every single day being who I am as a proud Palestinian-American, a woman Muslim. I want to thank you so much because for so many years they felt dehumanized and I tell you as a Palestinian, I mean, you know, a lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian. But I can tell you my mother’s, like the compassion this woman has, that is in me. She smiles every single time as she–this woman doesn’t even understand when people are being racist to her. Because she believes that people can be better and she is an inspiration to me in so many ways…”
These guys were pulled over for not wearing seatbelts despite both occupants wearing one. After around ten minutes of arguing, one of the officers broke the driver side window and unlocked the door from the inside. He then grabbed the drivers arm and pulled him out of the car.
This guy was driving along the highway when a crazy driver not paying any attention nearly ran into a police car who had someone pulled over. He swerved at the last possible second and somehow managed to not hit anyone or flip over.

A US Navy plane was intercepted by a Russian fighter jet after it came close to the country's airspace.
But the manoeuvre has been slammed by the US for being unsafe, saying it put the American pilot and crew in danger.
Video footage from on board the American Navy plane shows the Russian SU-27 making a high-speed pass at a 'very, very close' distance.
A statement from the Navy read: "A US EP-3 Aries aircraft flying in international airspace over the Black Sea was intercepted by a Russian SU-27.
"This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, putting at risk the pilots and crew.

The advertisement is called "Thumbs" but viewers watching Voxi's new creative offering say they can see something more saucy.
The advert shows a mountainous forest setting and is a play on a civilisation worshiping a supreme being.
The population are thumbs and the being is the phone network, except some of the thumbs look a bit phalic.
Writing on Twitter user Thomas Hobbs wrote: "I’m sure Vodafone set out to make a snappy advert - all about thumbs and phone use - for its VOXI brand. Somehow the reality is a field full of cocks."
Another confused viewer JackieNeill wrote: "Not sure the thumbs in the @VOXI_UK advert look as much like thumbs as they should"

Up to 100 thugs terrorised youngsters, mugging two young boys and beating up several others during a planned rampage last week, Dublin Live reports.
One woman who tried to stop a young boy being mugged ended up having a bottle thrown in her face, it is claimed.

Schoolboys who were caught smoking in the playground were punished by making them smoke more cigarettes.
The group of 11 eight-year-olds were sent to see the headmaster at their primary school in Sukabumi, Indonesia.
As they waited nervously they were expecting a severe telling off and heavy detention penalties plus letters home to their parents.
But headmaster Tati Maelati lined up the pupils and handed them each several cigarettes, which he then made them chain smoke in his office.
He said that this would act as a "deterrent" as they would "feel the bad effects" of the smoking.

PV undercover journalist asks a Texas election official if her “DREAMer” boyfriend can vote as long as he is registered to vote and has a driver’s license.
“Yeah okay” says the election official.
“If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” the election official says of a potential DACA voter.
“Right. It doesn’t matter that he’s not a citizen?” PV journalist asks, adding, “I saw some mess on the internet that it’s not legal for him to vote because…”
“No. Don’t pay any attention to that. Bring him up here,” the Texas election official said.
When the Project Veritas journalist pressed the election official about her ‘DREAMer’ boyfriend and asked if there is an “issue with DACA people voting,” the election official responded, “No, you tell him no, we got a lot of ’em.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats should be prepared to “throw a punch” in the political arena, while discussing the midterm election with podcaster Jonathan Van Ness at the Bentzen Ball in Washington D.C. last month.
“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! F*cking John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel said not realizing she is being recorded.

NBC and Fox News said in separate statements on Monday that their networks will no longer air the Trump campaign's anti-immigrant advertisement.
NBC was first to announce the change, doing so after a backlash over its decision to show the 30-second spot during "Sunday Night Football," one of the highest-rated programs on television.
"After further review," NBC said, "we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible."
Fox soon followed suit.
"Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network," ad sales president Marianne Gambelli told CNN in a statement.

Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes said the landlord of the building, which appears to be a strip mall, locked it overnight after workers had already set up the polling place. There are ballots inside the building, he said.
Fontes said his staff is working with the sheriff’s office to see whether they can forcibly enter the property to collect the ballots and equipment. In the meantime, he said poll workers set up a temporary polling place in the parking lot.
These people were asking for it.

CCTV has captured the horrific moment a man lost a hand when he fell into a saw while running away from a charging bull.
The victim, known only as Rauf, was buying some wood at a mill when his bright red top attracted the animal to him.
The bull bolted straight at Rauf, and although the 22-year-old managed to escape, he ran straight into the working saw-mill.
As a result, his hand was severed by the blade.
Quick-thinking onlookers put Rauf's hand in a bag of ice - and plastic surgeons have now successfully replaced the limb through a rare operation.
It is hoped he will regain full use of it.
