Update: 13 Dead and possibly growing.

(CNN)Preliminary information indicates 10 people were killed and more than 20 others injured in a shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College on Thursday, said Oregon State Police spokesman Bill Fugate.

Douglas County Commissioner Chris Boice told CNN that the shooter is in custody. It was not immediately clear whether the shooter was injured.

ATF agents were on the scene and canine teams are en route to search for explosives, fire arms casings and ammunition, a spokesman said.

Earlier, authorities told had said they were responding to reports of an active shooter at the Roseburg college campus.

Roseburg is a city of about 22,000 people located about 70 miles south of Eugene, Oregon, and some 180 miles south of Portland.

The school itself is up on a hill outside the city center, according to Rick Francona, a CNN military analyst who lives nearby. Francona said that logging is a big industry in the region, which is fairly rural but easily accessible from Interstate 5.

“This is so out of character for this whole area,” he said.

A picturesque campus in the North Umpqua River Valley, the school prides itself on a “a peaceful, safe atmosphere, and year-round recreational activities,” according to its website.

It’s not a traditional institution of higher learning, as the average age of its 13,600 students was 38 during the 2013-2014 school year. Only 740 of those were full time, 2,437 were part time and more than 10,000 fell under the umbrella of “community education.”

It first began teaching classes out of rented facilities in 1961. Elton and Ruth Jackson donated 98.5 acres to house the campus in 1965.

  • it’s a tragedy for the young college students and their parents / siblings, friends
    people are very upset today with what’s going on and the continuous negativity on tv and the internet.
    people cannot handle the stress and are going over the edge.
    sounds like the second amendment is next.

    • Not your traditional Community College. Most students were over 30. Still a terrible thing. “Gun Free Zones” are killing fields for Psychos. One security guard and he was unarmed too. WTH?

  • Folks wake up, this is another planned distraction from WW3 starting in Syria, and the fact that our President is doing nothing about it…

    • mitch51

      This is RETARDED.

    • Keep eating core, beetle, this game is not for you.

      America should back off and stay out of the mess but kind of hard to do when you have created it.

      Besides, this is the end of the age which may still have around 12 or 13 years left to finish up what is prophesized to happen and no one will speed it up or slow it down.

  • Oregon ~ Ogre On
    Mount Shasta ~ Mouth Satan’s

  • Mind control.

  • Check out the crisis actor bimbo with glasses and the funny face on Fox news.

  • The 20 year old male shooter is either a victim of legalized sorceries or a Muslim as he asked people to stand and name their religion.

  • I’m sure you have all heard about the man who opened fire at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College on Thursday, Well, now it seems he may have signalled his intent the night before on no other than the website: 4chan. Now this may just be one giant coincidence, but take a look for yourself. Here is an image of the post as it has since been purged.

  • We have to ask ourselves, why is American society so enthralled with violence? Every other country in the Western world views the same movies and video games. Why aren’t their societies acting out as America does?
    In addition, most of Europe is very secular, so that negates the argument some are making that America has lost its way because we are turning away from God.
    Some say it’s drugs and alcohol, but they are a huge problem around the world as well.
    Although violent crime nationwide is down over the past 20 years, it’s still much higher than the rest of the civilized world.
    I don’t know the answers, but I think it’s time to take a long hard look at ourselves and where we’re heading.
    Here’s a sobering stat. Since 9/11 there have been 33 Americans killed by Muslim terrorists. In that same time period over 220,000 Americans have been murdered by other Americans.
    Maybe Americans just aren’t as civilized as we think we are!
