A gunman opened fire on Thursday at a community college in Oregon, killing several people and wounding others, county officials and local media reported, in the latest mass killing to rock a U.S. school.

There were conflicting reports on the number of casualties and wounded. An official with the Douglas County local government told Reuters that 15 people had been killed in the rampage at Umpqua Community College.

CNN reported at least 10 people had died.

The shooter apparently posted on 4chan last night



Update

Apparently he was going after Christians

“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” tweeted [email protected],” who said her grandmother was inside the Umpqua Community College classroom that was the scene of the 10:40 a.m. carnage.
“If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

This type of stuff is horrible and its painful to know that the families will have to go through such horrifying losses. Lots of praying to do tonight..

Also, the shooter must have been pretty desperate for attention if he had to go online to hint at it.

This so common in the USA, that we need to hold a contest on who has the highest to dead kill ratio.

"Gud som är i himlen, helgad vare ditt namn. Vaka över dessa själar som nu vandrar längs dödens dal. Vänd ditt ansikte mot dom, förlåt deras synder och låt dom vila i frid i väntan på återuppståndelsen då de ska vandra till din sida i himlens rike. I faderns, sonens och den helige andens namn. Amen."

Trans:

God who are in heaven, holy is thy name. Watch over these souls that now walks in the valley of death. Turn your face upon them, forgive their sins and let them rest in peace awaiting the day of resurrection when they shall walk to your side in the kingdom of heaven. In the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit. Amen.

you cant stop this kind of stuff. I almost found myself saying there should be more gun control. all you can do is learn about why this happened and try to prevent it next time

My hearts out to the families, friends, victims, and college that were affected by this. Truly tragic.

I read this from a twitter response regarding the shootings:

My home country (Mexico) is violent as hell but you never see people shooting up schools.
It seems that it is an American thing

The only way to stop this in the US (given that guns are so common in the US) is to give guns to the teachers....

Or post armed guards at all schools.
