“Oregon gunman lined up students, singled out Christians and shot them during rampage

Why aren’t they releasing his name? Obama knows something, which is why got out in front of this and made it about gun control.

Pure evil.

“Oregon gunman singled out Christians during rampage,”
The gunman who opened fire at an Oregon community college was forcing people to stand up and state their religion before he began blasting away at them, survivors said Thursday.

A woman who claimed to have a grandmother inside a writing class in Snyder Hall, where a portion the massacre unfolded, described the scene in a tweet.

“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my house, and she was in the room. She wasn’t shot, but she is very upset.

The Twitter user then recalled how her grandmother attempted to save the life of one of her close classmates.

“She tried to perform CPR on her friend, but it was too late,” the woman said. “I hope nothing like this ever happens again.”

Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old student at Umpqua Community College who was also in the room, told Oregon’s News Review that the shooter was indeed on the hunt for Christians.

Moments after hearing a bullet come flying through a window, she said the 20-year-old shooter made his way inside and targeted their teacher, pumping a single round into their head.

As the young man ordered people to the ground, Moore laid patiently with her classmates and waited, according to the News Review.

Once they all got down, she said the gunman began asking people to rise and say what their religion was. After they stood and gave their answer, he started shooting.

As the chaos continued, students began scrambling “like ants,” according to Brady Winder, a 23-year-old student from Portland who was in the room next door.

“People (were) screaming, ‘get out!,” he told NRToday, adding that he witnessed a girl frantically swimming across a nearby creek to escape.

Hannah Miles, another Umpqua student, was also sitting in a class room next door and said she initially heard a pop that sounded like a yardstick slapping on a chalkboard when the shooting broke out.

She said that when her class heard the noise again, her teacher went to see if everything was all right. Minutes later, shots rang out repeatedly and they all fled, leaving their belongings behind.

Jared Norman, a nursing student, was locked down in the cafeteria with 50 other students when he heard gunfire — which prompted a mass panic, he said, with his voice trembling.

UCC Foundation Executive Director Dennis O’Neill was also on campus during the shooting and said him and other school officials were running around and securing classrooms as the gunman made his way through Snyder Hall.

“We locked our door and I went out to lock up the rest rooms and could hear four shots from the front of campus,” he recalled.

Christian Bringhurst, a teacher at nearby Camas Valley Elementary School, said his daughter Justine was also on campus at time of shooting and was safely evacuated.

“It’s awful. The uncertainty of what is going on is tough to deal with,’ he explained. “We have a dozen (Camas Valley) kids going to school out there. Trying to find out who is there and make sure everybody is OK. Our hearts going out to the victims.”

At around noon, officials sent out an automated phone call to parents at Roseburg School District, which referenced the shooting and assured the school was safe.

Sometime later, students’ cell phones were confiscated and they were escorted out of their buildings with their hands up as authorities patted them down and lined them up to be evacuated on buses, according to NRToday.

Around 200 people were estimated to be waiting at the Douglas County Fairgrounds to pick up the students. Red Cross grief counselors were also on hand to provide care to anyone who needed it.

  2. Geri,

    I know this is “old news,” but I just came cross it.

    I live in Oregon and a few months ago I retired from teaching in a community college here, not the one in question, however.

    Of course when this news came out, we. never. heard. the. truth.

    Thank God for citizens with cell phones.

    Of course we sent letters of condolences, etc., to our colleagues at UCC,

    I taught many international students, a number from Muslim countries, as well as American students, and loved them all. However, before each and every term, I “prayed around” my classrooms (that could be anywhere on campus, as per assignment). I prayed behind each desk or computer station, and prayed for each student.

    When I began teaching many years ago, it never, ever occurred to me that classrooms would be battle grounds one day.

    Eventually, the Holy Spirit led me to actually walk around the entire campus, all four corners, through buildings, etc., praying in the spirit, doing spiritual warfare. Toward my retirement, another believer joined me a few times.

    My sister and I also prayed around her daughter’s campus (her daughter is now a junior) and continue to do so before each term, in the same manner. Her daughter attends a university that has always been known nationally for its front and center leftist activism (I went there in the late sixties/seventies) and has been very, oddly “quiet” the last couple of years. We don’t know if this is because believers are praying, or for some other reason. But we are grateful to God for this. One of my daughters also went there.

    Christians really need to heed the warnings from the Holy Spirit and from those who discern the signs of the times we are in.

    The “spiritual atmosphere” changed distinctly about ten years ago, that is for sure.

    God was faithful in my tenure, although I had one tense moment when an international student asked me (shouting from the back of the classroom on the first day) if I was a Christian. The Holy Spirit enabled me to say “Yes!” loudly and clearly. (I always wondered about such a scene because I am no hero).

    Fortunately, the student yelled back, “So am I,” so the Lord had other plans for that very brief interaction.

    I can also say that in a variety of “allowed ways,” as it were, I was able to “witness” by subtle ways and various means as the Lord led, for God is not restrained, nor is His word restricted or His will thwarted in any way. But Christians DO need to become familiar with spiritual warfare and certain “tactical measures” as well. It is of those I often write…more and more, these days…

    I can tell you that my “new best friends” “on the ground,” so to speak, in the classrooms were ex-military and ex-convicts. I just quietly noted who they were and where they sat. Both groups have certain observational and survival skills, and would be good assets should an incident unfold. One ex-G.I. told me that the vets always know who each other is, and they will sit in certain strategic places in a classroom for defense purposes. I appreciated that bit of knowledge.

    I prayed especially for the veterans who may have just come from Middle East tdy’s…a number of whom shared with me they suffered with PTSD, especially as the wars dragged on and our troops, at that time, became more and more restricted, as it were, due to political correctness. Thank God for a bit of a reprieve just now.

    I always think of what Corrie ten Boom (of Hiding Place fame, during WWII; of the family who hid Jews until the family was caught and sent to a concentration camp) said her father told her when she was a child and told him she was afraid of death. He said God will help her because He knows exactly when we need things, like how the train conductor gives them their tickets just before the train leaves.

    Well, my prayers are with you and your family in your own struggles.

    “(We) can do all things through Christ Jesus Who strengthen us”…

    Carry on.
