At least 15 reported dead after shooting at Oregon community college

At least 15 people are dead and 20 injured after a shooting at a community college in Oregon Thursday morning, officials said.

The shooting at Umpqua Community College started at 10:38 a.m., police said.

The shooter is now reported as “down,” with no further details immediately available, said Douglas County commissioner┬áChris Boice.

Oregon State Police later said at least 15 people had died, but a final number of fatalities has still not been confirmed.

Mercy Medical Center, a local Roseburg hospital, received nine patients and is expecting three more, a spokesperson wrote on Facebook.

“Please continue to pray,” the message reads. The shooter at the Roseburg campus is “down,” an official told the Daily News.

The shooter has not been identified, but several message boards noted the shooter may have revealed his plans Wednesday night in posts on the website 4chan.

“Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest,” one post reads.
