Roseburg, Ore.– Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum confirms 13 deaths in this morning’s shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.
Details are still few as Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies and Oregon State Police investigators assess the situation at the college in rural Roseburg. OSP did issue a press release confirming that there is “no current threat to the community.”
Students are reporting that they heard gunfire come from a classroom in Snyder Hall.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin says deputies arrived on the scene and “engaged the shooter, gunfire was exchanged” and the shooter was killed. Hanlin could only say that the shooter was a male. Governor Kate Brown said in a press conference that the shooter was 20-years old. Kortney Moore told the News Review that she saw her teacher get shot in the head. ”The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing away, Moore said.”
Students are being bused to the Douglas County Fairgrounds once they’ve been debriefed. Family members are asked to meet up with students there, and to stay away from the UCC campus.
