Nine killed in U.S college shooting

Nine people have been killed and seven injured in a shooting at a college in the U.S state of Oregon, the police said.

The gunman, 26, opened fire at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning and was killed in a police shootout.

There were conflicting reports on casualties but Douglas County Sheriff, John Hanlin, said 10 dead, including the gunman, was “the best” figure.

Police has not identified the attacker but unnamed officers have told United States media his name is Chris Harper Mercer.

Mr. Hanlin said he would not confirm the name, adding: “I will not give him the credit he probably sought prior to this horrific and cowardly act.”

The gunman was reportedly born in the United Kingdom and moved to the U.S as a young boy, the BBC says.

A man identified as the gunman’s father, Ian Mercer, told U.S media he was “just as shocked as everybody” by his son’s actions.

The killer’s motive is not known, although police officials said they were investigating reports that he had warned of his intentions on social media.

Hours after the attack, in which seven were also injured, a visibly frustrated President Barack Obama demanded tighter gun laws, saying prayers are “no longer enough.”
