CBS Seattle

ROSEBURG, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) – At least 13 people were killed in a shooting at a community college in southwestern Oregon.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said 13 people were killed in a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, and 20 others were injured. The shooter was also killed.

The first call about a shooting at the college in Roseburg came into the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 10:38 a.m.

In released emergency dispatch recordings, one officer is heard saying, “We’re exchanging shots with him … he’s in a classroom” and that “the suspect is down.”

The community college is a gun-free campus.

“Possession, use, or threatened use of firearms (including but not limited to BB guns, air guns, water pistols, and paint guns) ammunition, explosives, dangerous chemicals, or any other objects as weapons on college property, except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations, is prohibited,” the college’s security policy states.

Joe Olson, former president of the college, told The Associated Press the school has only one security officer on duty at a time, and that person isn’t armed.
