10 Dead, 7 Injured as Gunman Opens Fire at US College




A gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, resulting in the death of 10 people, including himself.

The tragic incident occurred on Thursday, and it began when the man, Chris Harper Mercer, armed with three handguns and an assault rifle, began shooting sporadically, while asking students about their religion as he attacked, LA Times reports.

He was eventually killed by a policeman.

According to CNN, the 26-year-old gunman singled out only Christians.

The motive for the man’s actions is still unclear.

    *sigh* When the sheriff gave a press conference yesterday he specifically said he wasn’t going to mention the name of the murderer (I never get why we call them gunmen. No one ever hesitates to call a terrorist a terrorist). He didn’t want to give the twisted creature the glory and fame he was seeking after death. He wanted this imbecile to die a nobody. I guess someone from the police department leaked it to the news media and as usual the media has thrown morality and common sense out the window for ratings. Just so we’re clear (because I know some people on this site only read one line before they comment), I’m not putting this on you BN.

    So my thing is.. He warned some of his class mates not to come to school via fbk that he’s planning of carrying out this mission and nobody thought they should tell the school authority/security about this threat smh. RIP to the victims
