In what appears to be another on-campus shooting multiple casualties are reported out of Oregon this morning. While many details are still unknown it is widely reported that the shooter has been detained. For that we are grateful. Regardless of the circumstance many people have lost their lives today and many more have been injured. We at CeaseFirePA know the impact of gun violence and our thoughts will be with those affected by it today in Oregon and the rest of the US.
This is what our partners at CeaseFire Oregon had to say:
Gun violence has ripped through our community, state and country once again. At this time, we understand from news reports that a lone gunman has killed at least thirteen people and injured at least twenty more at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
No family should ever have to go through what the Umpqua Community College families are experiencing right now. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families and the entire Roseburg community.

Our deepest sympathies to the families and friends.
