US President Donald Trump said in a statement on Thursday that he has received a full briefing on the shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California that killed at least 13 people.

“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,” Trump said in a Twitter post.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s department has said the 13 people include the gunman and the first sheriff’s deputy who responded to the scene.

Trump added in a second statement that the California Highway Patrol and police showed “great bravery” and responded to the scene of the shooting within 3 minutes.

​He also said the sheriff’s sergeant who was the first to arrive at the scene died in hospital.
