The numbered of injured is not yet known but many have presented themselves at local hospitals. 

Police said “hundreds” were inside the bar when the gunfire started.

A spokesman said: “I have nothing to lead me to believe, or the FBI, that there is a terrorist connection, but we will certainly look into all options.”

A witness said he saw someone throwing smoke bombs into the front of the restaurant. He also said he saw a security guard get shot.

“The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place.”

“I thought it was a joke when the shots started firing. I know people there. I hope everybody’s OK. I don’t know how I didn’t get shot.”
