The suspected gunman who authorities say opened fire at a community college in Oregon, killing 13 and injuring 20, is dead.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told reporters that the 20-year-old college student was “neutralized.” The suspect, who was not named, also appears to have had a conversation online about the attack last night.
According to CNN:
The suspect was a 20-year-old man, according to Oregon Gov. Kate Brown. Investigators are examining social media postings they believe were made by the suspect, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.
“We arrived to find multiple patients in multiple classrooms. Law enforcement was on scene and had the shooter neutralized,” Douglas County Fire Marshal Ray Shoufler told CNN.
He said that two patients died while being transported to a hospital.
The shooting appears to have started in one building before the gunman moved to the school’s science building, the source told CNN. Those killed and wounded were found in at least two classrooms.
This is a developing story.
