Douglas County Sheriff's officials say the shooter was killed. He's since been identified as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer. His connection to the college wasn't clear.

(Bryson) "We did walk by the building where it happened... I believe I saw a stretcher with a body on it."

Her best friend Kaylee Ingersoll says she and her friends are talking about reports that Mercer asked what people's religions were before he shot them.

(Ingersoll) "I want to know his motive. I want to know why he did this. And, you know, why he decided to attack my hometown."

President Obama spoke Thursday eveningĀ in the aftermath of a school shooting in Oregon.

FOX News Radio's Jon Decker reports from the White House:

A visibly angry President Obama told reporters in the White House briefing room moments ago that sadly the mass shooting in Oregon has become routine in America.

(President Obama) "It cannot be this easy for someone who wants to inflict harm on other people to get his or her hands on a gun."

The President once again called on Congress to pass new gun control laws - arguing that this latest shooting should be politicized.

The shooting in Oregon was the 11th mass shooting to occur during the President's seven years in office.
