ROSEBURG, Ore. – Emergency crews are responding to a deadly shooting on the Umpqua Community College campus Thursday morning, an Oregon State Police spokesperson said.

The Oregon attorney general said 13 people are dead and another 20 injured.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown confirmed that the gunman, a 20-year-old male, is deceased.

A school official told affiliate reporter Sara Mattison that shots were fired at Snyder Hall around 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

All of the dead are in one building that houses six to eight classrooms, the official said. He said there were "multiple patients in multiple classrooms."

Eleven of the injured have been transported to the hospital, and that two of those have died, a Douglas County fire official said. It wasn't clear if those were in addition to the others already reported killed.

Three people have been air lifted to Riverbend Hospital in Springfield, Ore. where a spokesperson says "this is a disaster level" emergency response.

People are being asked to stay away from the campus as students and faculty members are being bused to the Douglas County Fairgrounds for pickup.

Former Umpqua Community College president Joe Olson says the school has only one security officer on duty at a time, and that person isn't armed.
