News:: Oregon shooting Total story || Umpqua Community College || USA Mass Shooting 2015


Investigators found 13 firearms connected to the man who killed nine people at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, Celinez Nunez of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives said Friday at a news conference.

Six weapons were found at the college, where the shooter died Thursday after a gun battle with police, she said. Those weapons included five pistols and one rifle.

Police searched his residence and found seven firearms — two pistols, four rifles and a shotgun, she said.

All the guns were legal, obtained by the shooter or family members over the last three years through a federal firearms, she said.

A flak jacket was found next to a rifle at the school with five magazines of ammunition, she said, and additional ammunition was found at the residence.

Authorities are still not providing a motive for America’s latest mass killing, which also left nine people wounded. They also haven’t named any of the victims or the shooter. The gunman went to the college in rural south Oregon heavily armed and wearing body armor on Thursday morning and shot people in two buildings, authorities said.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon said one of his cousins was killed at the school. “This is a small town and everyone is affected,” he said.

Stacy Boylan, the father of shooting victim Anastasia Boylan, said she told him the gunman singled out Christians.

She said the gunman entered her classroom firing, told the professor teaching the class, “I’ve been waiting to do this for years,” and shot him point blank, Stacy Boylan said.

While reloading his handgun, the man ordered the students to stand up and asked if they were Christians, Boylan told her family.

“And they would stand up, and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,’ ” Stacy Boylan, told CNN, relaying his daughter’s account. “And then he shot and killed them.”

Anastasia Boylan, 18, was hit in the back by a bullet that traveled down her spine. While she lay bleeding on the floor, the gunman called out to her, “Hey you, blond woman,” her mother said. She played dead — and survived.

Another intriguing element in the investigation: The shooter is reported to have delivered “a box” to someone during the shooting.

Stacy Boylan said his daughter told him the man “gave somebody a box, somebody who lived, and said, ‘You gotta deliver this.’ Somebody has a box. I don’t know what that’s about.”
