Reports: UCC Shooter Asked Victims Their Religion, Then Killed The Christians

Douglas County's News Review newspaper reports that the gunman in todays mass shooting in Oregon was asking people their religion before shooting them. According to at least one unconfirmed account, the shooter then targeted those who had answered Christian by shooting them in the head, shooting those who answered otherwise in the legs.

From the News Review report:

Kortney Moore, 18, from Rogue River, was in her Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall when one shot came through a window. She saw her teacher get shot in the head. The shooter was inside at that point, and he told people to get on the ground. The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing away, Moore said. Moore was lying there with people who had been shot.

From Twitter, one person claims her grandmother was on scene and witnessed the same, adding the detail about the targeting of Christians.

At this time, over a dozen media outlets have responded to Bodhi requesting more information or confirmation of this account. She has responded to some skeptics via Twitter.

Local CBS affiliate KOIN in Portland also reported that the gunman was asking students to "stand up and state their religion." Fox Business reported the same on air, based on the News Review report.

Truth Revolt will update this story as information becomes available.
