Multiple people were killed in a shooting at an Oregon’s Umpqua community college on Thursday, officials said, with reports of ten dead and at least twenty injured. KATU is claiming that 15 were actually killed.

One victim includes a woman who was shot in the chest, said Chris Boice, a Douglas County commissioner. The shooter is “down and in custody,” Boice added. This fact has been confirmed by Oregon State Police spokesman Bill Fugate.

Officials with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were at the scene, according to a department tweet.
