The headline has been changed, the text of this article has not.

Thirteen people have been confirmed dead, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced minutes ago at a short press conference. The Governor also announced the shooter is deceased and was a 20-year old male.

 

The Oregon Attorney General's office confirmed the number of dead.

There are also about 20 wounded victims being treated at area hospitals. No other details about the victims or the shooter have been made available as of this report.

CNN reports a "law enforcement official told CNN four guns believed to have belonged to the suspect were recovered at the scene. Investigators are also looking at social media postings they believe the shooter made, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN."

At about 10:38 AM local time, authorities had received a 911 call of a possible shooting at the community college.

 

NCRM will bring additional details as they become available.
