Ten Killed, More than 20 Injured in Shooting at Oregon College

By Staff

 

oregonTen people have reportedly been killed, and more than 20 others injured in a shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College Thursday, according to Oregon State Police.

Authorities said the gunman was killed after exchanging fire with officers, and there is no longer a threat on the campus.

Police reportedly received a call stating there was an active shooter in a classroom at the college at about 10:30 a.m., officials stated.

The fire department and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were also on the scene, and reportedly directed students and community members to stay away from the campus.

Other students were bused to the Douglas County Fairgrounds, where friends and family members picked them up.

The shooter was a 26-year-old man, according to Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, who ordered flags be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday.

Sources told CNN the shooter reportedly posted about carrying the shooting out on social media before the incident.

“This is the only time I’ll ever be in the news. I’m so insignificant,” the post by the would-be Oregon gunman reportedly stated.

The college, located near the city of Roseburg, has about 13,000 students.

President Barack Obama, again, called for a change in gun laws, and made the following statement, after being briefed on the incident:

“Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough. It does not capture the heartache, and grief, and anger that we should feel, and it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America, next week, or a couple months from now,” he stated.

In addition, UCC’s interim president labeled Friday as “the saddest day” in the school’s history.
