Previous reports suggested that police had taken the UCC shooting suspect into custody, but now media outlets are starting to report that the suspect is down, citing scanner traffic. Police have only said that the suspect was in custody. They have not confirmed the reports that the person might be down.
Some are now reporting that two of the patients who were transported to the hospital have died. It’s unclear whether they were included among the death toll reported by officials earlier.
Multiple media outlets have repeatedly tweeted at a student who’s on scene at the UCC shooting to try to get her to call them. Twitter-stalked?

We’re hearing that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is on scene at the UCC shooting. Fire District 2 in Douglas County, Oregon tweeted that all the patients in the shooting have been transported and that there were multiple casualties. The fire department also tweeted that the active shooter scene at UCC no longer requires assistance. Douglas County Commissioner Chris Boice reportedly told CNN that they have taken the shooter into custody.
It’s unclear at this point whether the suspect is among the numbers of fatalities or injuries reported by law enforcement. Officials have said so far that about 15 people have been killed and 20 others injured. It appears as if these numbers have stabilized from earlier when the number was rising.
Multiple media outlets are reporting that there’s an active shooter on the campus of Umpqua Community College (UCC) in Roseburg, Oregon. CNN reports that as many as 10 people are dead in the UCC shooting, although it appears that the death toll has risen to 15 at least. Sources cite Oregon State Police for both numbers. State Police also reported that at least 20 others have been injured in the UCC shooting.
