Ten dead in Oregon college shooting: Sheriff

Threat has ‘subsided’ after Thursday’s killings on the campus of Umpqua Community College, where more deaths were initially reported


 

ROSEBURG, Ore. — A sheriff says 10 people were killed in Thursday’s shooting at an Oregon community college.

Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin says 10 dead and another seven injured is the “best, most accurate information we have at this time.”

Earlier, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said 13 people were killed in the rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.

It’s unclear what led to the discrepancy. Hanlin has said the gunman died after a shootout with police. He didn’t clarify whether the shooter was included in the 10 fatalities.

Hanlin says three people who were critically injured in the shooting have been transferred to hospitals in the Eugene area.
