    Oregon college shooting: Gunman kills nine in Roseburg attack

    Nine people have been killed and seven injured in a shooting at a college in the US state of Oregon, say police.

    The gunman, 26, opened fire at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning and was killed in a police shootout.

    There were conflicting reports on casualties but Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said 10 dead, including the gunman, was "the best" figure.

    Police have not identified the attacker but un-named officers have told US media his name is Chris Harper Mercer.

    Mr Hanlin said he would not confirm the name, adding: "I will not give him the credit he probably sought prior to this horrific and cowardly act."




    The gunman was reportedly born in the UK and moved to the US as a young boy.

    A man identified as the gunman's father, Ian Mercer, told US media he was "just as shocked as everybody" by his son's actions.

    The killer's motive is not known, although police said they were investigating reports that he had warned of his intentions on social media.

    Hours after the attack, in which seven were also injured, a visibly frustrated President Barack Obama demanded tighter gun laws, saying prayers are "no longer enough".

    Such shootings - and his own response - had become routine, he said, barely concealing his exasperation.

    "We are not the only country on Earth that has people with mental illnesses or want to do harm to other people.

    "But we are the only advanced country on Earth that sees these mass shootings every few months."

    Referring to a BBC interview in which he talked about this, he said countries like the UK and Australia showed that effective legislation was possible.

    Obama's 'hopeless' push for gun control




    We wake up again to a mass shooting in the USA. Crazy.

    Thoughts & prayers with all family & friends affected by this tragedy

    they really have to do something about the gun laws its a joke happening so often now

    there have been 293 mass shootings in America this year. a mass shooting is one with at least four people shot radical changes needed.

    thoughts with all the families so sad

    "Not again ffs" was exactly the tone of Obama's reaction to this.
    He seems completely disillusioned and disgusted at the complete stonewalling and refusal to even attempt to strengthen gun control laws.
    NRA have far too much lobbying power.

    The gun lobby is too strong in America and nothing is going to change

    & rightly so it really is shocking, I cant get my head around why the feckin 2nd amendment cant be amended ARGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!
    Obviously I know why & who is stopping it being amended but to keep using something called an 'amendment' as an excuse is vile!

    I cant even begin to understand how those poor families must feel
