Police Search Students Outside the Community College

At least 10 people have been killed in a shooting at Umpqua Community College, in Rosberg, Oregon.  26 year-old Chris Harper-Mercer has been named as the gunman, and was shot during a shootout with the police.  He had three pistols and a rifle on him during the attack and reportedly made his victims lie down and then stand up and say their religion before he shot them.

One source told The New York Times that Harper-Mercer appeared to be “an angry young man who was filled with hate.”  Only three days before the attack, he had downloaded the BBC documentary “This World Surviving Sandy Hook”.
