(NBC, KGW) – Ten people were reported dead and several others wounded during a shooting at Umpqua Community College near Roseburg Thursday morning, according Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenbaum.

The shooter was killed, Rosenbaum said.  The Governor of Oregon said the shooter is a 20-year-old man.

A spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said there is no longer a threat on the campus.

Police received a call of an active shooter in a classroom at the college at 10:30 a.m., according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities in Roseburg quickly spread the word and called on residents and students not to go to the campus.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tweeted that it had special agents at the college and was sending additional agents, as well as a K-9 team, to the scene.

Students were bused to the Douglas County Fairgrounds, where friends and family were meeting them.
