13 weapons recovered from United States gunman

We’re learning more about the man responsible for killing nine people in the shooting spree. Survivors described a classroom of carnage, and one said he ordered students to state their religion before shooting them.


One student, 18-year-old Kortney Moore, told News Review-Today that she was in her writing class in Snyder Hall when a single shot came through a window.

Authorities identified the nine victims of the shooting in an emotional press conference Friday.

He was killed by police in a gun battle and another seven weapons were found at his home.

Police recovered six weapons from the scene of the attack and another seven at his apartment, all of which were legally owned.

But the gunman fired additional rounds, Ms Skinner recounted, adding that the gunman then changed direction and entered a different room. In the statement the family said the “amazing” teen, who was studying chemistry at the college, loved animals and soccer.

Hanlin didn’t say whether the gunman killed himself or was killed by police.

The names of a few of the victims of Chris Harper Mercer’s massacre at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon have been announced.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said 13 people are dead.

His presidential proclamation is intended as “a mark of respect for the victims of gun violence perpetrated” Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. More than 20 other people were injured. Chief Greg Marlar of the Douglas County Fire District No. 2 said Anspach was part of the fire and EMS family, though his exact role wasn’t immediately known.

Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation says it’s sending teams to Roseburg to assist.

At the president’s request, he’ll continue to receive updates throughout the day.

Harper-Mercer’s own family, including his British father, Ian Mercer, who now lives in California, have expressed their shock at Thursday’s events.

Kim Dietz was from Roseburg, the sheriff said.

Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley says he’s “absolutely heartbroken” about the shooting.

The killer asked his victims if they were Christian before shooting them at point blank range, witnesses said.

A MySpace page that appeared to belong to Mercer included several photos and graphics of the Irish Republican Army as well as a picture of Mercer holding a rifle.

“She was on lockdown for an hour and said it was terrifying”.

In 2013, Hanlin sent a letter to Vice President Joe Biden after the shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school, declaring that he and his deputies would refuse to enforce new gun-control restrictions “offending the constitutional rights of my citizens”. “Won’t say more to much to prepare”. “But if you’re near the shooter, the next tactic is run”, said Villahermosa.


The 3,000-student school is located in Roseburg, Oregon, a rural area about 175 miles (280 km) south of Portland.
