School shooting in Oregon leaves up to 10 dead, over 20 injured

Seven to 10 people were killed and more than 20 others injured in a Thursday morning shooting at an Oregon community college campus, CNN reported.

The shooting took place at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, in the southwestern part of the state. A suspect is in custody, according to CNN.

“We arrived to find multiple patients in multiple classrooms. Law enforcement was on scene and had the shooter neutralized,” Douglas County Fire Marshal Ray Shoufler told CNN.

He said two victims died while being transported to a hospital.

ATF agents were also on the scene and canine teams are en route to search for explosives, fire arms casings and ammunition, a spokesman said.

Roseburg is a city of about 22,000 people located about 70 miles south of Eugene, Oregon, and some 180 miles south of Portland.

The school itself is up on a hill outside the city center, according to Rick Francona, a CNN military analyst who lives nearby. Francona said that logging is a big industry in the region, which is fairly rural but easily accessible from Interstate 5.

“This is so out of character for this whole area,” Francona said.

      Just like the gun walked up by itself. You really are a special kind of stupid aren’t you. Tell me something Einstein if murder is already illegal and this scumbag did that then what makes you think that he still wouldn’t have gotten a hold of a gun if the laws you fascists wanted in place were in place? Also why don’t you explain how people keep getting slaughtered in Chicago even though it has some of the strictist gun laws out there?

      Start shooting to defend yourself from that lunatic you moron! It’s a shame those students weren’t able to defend themselves. If only one of the students had a gun to stop this crazy piece of manure, more lives had been saved
