On the morning of October 1, a gunman entered Umpqua Community College in Roseburg and killed at least ten people and injured twenty before being killed by law enforcement.
Residents of Douglas County are still in shock over today’s events but they are pulling together.
Vigils are being planned, the Red Cross is helping out, and grief counselors are on site.
KBOO reporter Doug McVay spoke with John Sajo, a Douglas County parent whose daughter attends Umpqua Community College, to find out more about the community’s response.
