According to Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, the shooter, now deceased, was a 20 year old male and is the alleged shooter of multiple fatalities and multiple casualties.
According to authorities, there have been four guns removed from the scene. 20 students are reported to have been injured and The Attorney General states there are 13 dead, others have stated up to 20 dead. At least two injured were flown to Mercy Hospital others transferred to a regional trauma center.
Arriving police officers first on the scene engaged in a firefight with the suspect and promptly “neutralized” him shooting him dead, according to Douglas County Fire Marshal Ray Shoufler leading the initial press conference.
According to witnesses, the first shots fired within at least one to two classrooms within Snyder Hall. The sounds were thought to have been fireworks or perhaps items loudly dropped. One young female student went to check on the noise and was immediately shot in the arm and stomach.
We do not have details of names or conditions of students at present. Other witnesses have stated the shooter demanded to know what religion each victim belonged to before executing them.
The bomb squad is going car to car in the Umpqwa Community college parking lot making sure there are no preplanted booby traps by the shooter. There was an alleged anonymous warning via Facebook stating, ” Do not go to school in the Northwest tomorrow.” The post has since been deleted by FB & authorities and is being investigated. ~ M.Katherine Orts reporting for USDefenseLeague.com “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth” & “WorldWideBroadcasters.com “Bringing Truth To The Nations” M.
