Gunman opens fire at Umpqua Community College

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — The latest on the deadly shooting Thursday at a community college in Oregon (all times local): 1:05 p.m. The former president of an Oregon community college where a gunman opened fire, killing at least seven people, says the school has only one security officer on duty at a time, and that person isn't armed. Joe Olson retired in June from his position as president of Umpqua (UMP'-kwah) Community College in Roseburg. He says last year, one of the biggest debates on campus was whether the school should have armed security officers. He says the college had three training exercises with local law agencies in the past two years, "but you can never be prepared for something like this." Olson says he suspects Thursday's shooting will start a discussion across the country about how community colleges prepare for something like this. Authorities say the gunman killed at least seven people and injured at least 20 others.
