The attack has been upgraded to a level 2 mass casualty incident indicating that there are between 10 to 20 injured victims.

Officers escorted large groups of people to safety as they left the area.

A college country night was being held at the venue, which is popular for line dancing.

An unnamed witness told the newspaper that someone ran into the bar around 11.30pm (local time) and started shooting what looked to be a black pistol.

Borderline is a country music bar that hosts live music events.
