Reports indicate the shooter indiscriminately fired roughly 30 rounds in the venue, which was hosting a student night at the time of the attack.
Survivors used bar stools to smash the windows and flee the carnage and escape to a nearby gas station.
Local, state and federal law enforcement have cordoned off the scene. No motive for the shooting has yet been announced.
