President Trump tweets condolences in California mass shooting

President Donald Trump is offering condolences after a mass shooting at a Southern California bar.

Trump said on Twitter Thursday that he has been “fully briefed on the terrible shooting.”

He praised law enforcement, saying “Great bravery shown by police” and said “God bless all of the victims and families of the victims.”

A gunman opened fire on a crowd at a country dance bar holding a weekly “college night” Wednesday night. The mass shooting killed 12 people and sent hundreds fleeing in terror. The gunman was later found dead at the scene.

Law enforcement said the dead from the shooting included 11 people inside the bar and a sheriff’s sergeant who was the first officer inside the door.
