10 Dead & 9 Injured In Oregon Mass Shooting

45th American Mass shooting this year. Oregon

UPDATE: New casualty counts have been released: putting the numbers at 10 killed and 9 wounded. Title has been updated to reflect change from previous 13 dead and 20 injured information.

“There was the one of two journalists on live TV in Moneta, Virginia; the one inside a church in Charleston, South Carolina; the few at Naval Reserve facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the one inside a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana; and others.

And now the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. It’s the 45th mass shooting in the United States in the 274 days so far in 2015, a spokesperson for Everytown for Gun Safety tells Newsweek.

On Thursday morning, a gunman opened fire on the college campus. The shooter might have killed 10 people, and wounded at least 20 others at the school, attended by about 3,300 full-time and 16,000 part-time students. The shooter has been killed, but not identified, according to Sergeant Aaron Dunbar.

“America is the only developed country where when someone asks if you heard about that campus shooting, you have to clarify, ‘Which one?’ That is unacceptable. Something has to change,” Colin Goddard, a survivor of the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech, said in a statement.”
