Ten people were killed and nine were injured Thursday, after a 26-year old gunman went on a shooting rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
I see where the father of one of the wounded told CNN, that the gunman singled out Christians.
Before going into spinal surgery, Anastasia Boylan told her father the gunman entered her classroom firing.“I’ve been waiting to do this for years,” the gunman told the professor teaching the class. He shot him point blank.
Apparently, everyone in the classroom dropped to the ground.
The gunman, while reloading his handgun, ordered the students to stand up and asked if they were Christians.
“And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying her account.
“And then he shot and killed them.”
One law enforcement official told the New York Times, “He appears to be an angry young man who was very filled with hate.”
The gunman died in an exchange of gunfire with police officers. It is not clear whether he was shot or whether he shot himself.
