Chris Harper Mercer has been identified as the gunman in the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

Police said 10 people were killed at the college, including the 26-year-old gunman, and seven others were injured. Earlier reports were that there were up to 15 killed and more than 20 injured.

Harper Mercer was a student at the school and was enrolled in the class where the shooting began, the Roseburg News-Review reports.

The victims have been all been identified (read about them here).

At a press conference on Friday, authorities said police recovered 13 weapons — six at the school and the rest at the gunman’s residence. All were purchased legally, some by the shooter and some by family members. Police also recovered a flak jacket “with steel plates” and several ammunition magazines.

Harper Mercer is from Torrance, California, and most recently lived in Winchester, Oregon, which is near the school. He lived with his mother Laurel Harper, in an apartment complex (read more about her here).

KPTV reports that there is a heavy police presence in his community.

“He appears to be an angry young man who was very filled with hate,” a law enforcement official told the New York Times.

Here’s what we know about Harper Mercer and the shooting:

1. He Fatally Shot Himself After ‘Heroic’ Cops Quickly Responded to the School

Police said in radio transmissions that the gunman was inside a classroom in Snyder Hall when they arrived at about 10:40 a.m. local time. Harper Mercer exchanged fire with police, according to the officers on the scene. The sheriff said at least two “heroic” officers responded to the scene within minutes and exchanged fire with Harper Mercer. He fatally shot himself during the shootout.

The shooter was armed with four guns, three handguns and an AR-15-style long gun, according to CNN.

You can listen to the police radio audio below:

The first 911 calls reported an active shooting with one victim. Police said they found multiple people dead and wounded when they arrived. The gunman was reported to be down about nine minutes after the shooting was first reported to police.

The shooting happened in a class that Harper Mercer was enrolled in.

Witnesses said the gunman told the students in the classroom to stand up and state their religion before he began firing away, the News-Review, a local newspaper, reports.

Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old student, told the newspaper that she was in her writing class in Snyder Hall when a shot came through a window. She said she saw her teacher get shot in the head and the gunman entered the room, telling people to get on the ground. Moore said he then told people to stand up and state their religion, before firing away. She was lying on the ground with people who were shot.

A witness said the shooting happened in Professor Larry Levine’s class:

According to the university’s website, Levine is an assistant professor in the school’s English department. He was one of the nine victims killed in the shooting.

One of the victims, Chris Mintz, a 30-year-old Army veteran, father and student, tried to take down the gunman inside the classroom. He was shot five times, and survived, but will have to learn to walk again, his family says. Read more about him at the link below:

Umpqua Community College shooting


Chris Harper Mercer gave a random student a suicide note during the shooting rampage, NBC News reports. In the note, which has not been made public, Harper Mercer said that he was “in a bad way” and had “no life,” according to NBC.

He also wrote, he hoped he would be “welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil.”

More details about the gunman’s life emerged on Friday. He attended a high school for students with special needs in California and was kicked out of the Army in 2008.

He was discharged by the Army just five weeks into basic training, the Oregonian reports.

The Torrance Daily Breeze reports that he moved from California to Oregon in 2013. He graduated in 2009 from the Switzer Learning Center with four other students. The school is for students with learning disabilities and emotional issues, the newspaper reports.

Harper Mercer’s father, who is from England, lives in Texas.

It’s not yet known how long Harper Mercer has been a student at the school or how well he knew the victims.

A post on the Centerstage Theater at UCC’s Facebook page Wednesday night lists a Chris Harper-Mercer as a production assistant in an upcoming show. It’s not clear whether that is the same person as the shooter. The theater is affiliated with the school.

4. He Wrote On His Blog ‘Seems the More People You Kill, the More You’re in the Limelight’

(Kickass Torrents)

Harper Mercer had a blog on the website Kickass Torrents, and also often uploaded to the file-sharing website. One of his last uploads was a documentary about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting:

On the blog, he wrote about Vester Flanagan, the disgruntled former TV reporter who killed a reporter and cameraman in Virginia in August.

“On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are. A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more your’re in the limelight,” he wrote.

He also wrote about the shooting of a police officer in Houston, Texas, saying “This whole event seems similar to the one in new york earlier this year where that guy killed those two cops sitting in a parked car. The inflammatory rhetoric on both sides, whether warranted or not will only continue to agitate the situation and events such as these will happen more and more. These are just my thoughts on the matter. Will continue to post more blogs on related subjects, as well any interesting thoughts I may have.”

He added, “In case anyone’s wondering, I’m not on the side of the suspect, I’m on the side of the officer, and generally don’t agree with the black lives matter protests.”

In another post, titled, “The material world is a lie,” he wrote:

The material world is a lie. For so long we have been taught that what’s important in life is to buy this and have that. To always have the latest fashion, biggest tv, fanciest car, nicest house, and blah,blah, blah. Well, the truth is we’ve become so attached to these things, our spiritual development has been halted. Just like they say in fight club “We become owned by the things we own”. Most people will spend hours standing in front of stores just to buy a new iphone. Those same people will complain about how they don’t have enough money but will always have money to spend on apple products. This attachment produces so much of the stress and worrying in the world today. I used to be like that, always concerned about what clothes I had, rather than whether or not I was happy. But not anymore. Since then I have learned the truth that such attachments are falsehoods and will only bring misery.This is my first blog post, there will be more to come.

He also posted on the website that he has never had a girlfriend.

The blog matches his email address,, which he used on his dating profiles.

5. The Internet Tore Apart an Innocent 4Chan Poster Whose Name & YouTube Videos Were Tied to the Shooting

(Google Maps)

(Google Maps)

Before the actual name of the shooter was released, a different name, Toby Reynolds, also known as Egg Man, spread on social media and some websites as the shooter.

He called NBC News and told them he was alive and not the shooter.

YouTube videos he posted spread quickly across the internet.

A post on the message board 4Chan Wednesday night at 7:19 p.m. local time that said “Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you live in the northwest,” is being investigated as possibly connected to the shooting.

In the discussion thread, some users told him not to do it, while others encouraged him and gave him ideas for how he could kill people.

One person responded saying, “I suggest you enter a classroom and tell people that you will take them as hostages. Make everyone get in one corner and then open fire. Make sure that there is no way that someone can disarm you as it it possible. I suggest you carry a knife on your belt as last resort if someone is holding your gun.”

Another poster said, “You might want to target a girls school which is safer because there are no beta males throwing themselves for their rescue. Do not use a shotgun. I would suggest a powerful assault rifle and a pistol or 2x pistols. Possibly the type of pistols who have 15+ ammo.”

It’s not clear if the 4 Chan posts were connected to the actual shooter, Chris Harper Mercer.

      • Black males aged 14-44 are 3% of the US population but according to FBI uniform crime statistics are responsible for over half of all murders in this country.

        • Read the FBI data on homicides. Last report shows 4,400 murders by whites. 5,400 murders by blacks. Substantial number with race unreported but blacks do commit a disproportionate number of murders and they do so primarily by killing other blacks.

      • that’s why 65% of murderers are black, you couldn’t be any more wrong to say that white people kill more people than blacks. they kill less over all and per capita, whites are 65% of the population, but less than 35% of murderers, blacks are 15 % of the population but 65% of murderers.

        • Also the FBI has been adding Hispanic crime into the ‘white’ crime category. That is messed up! Whites share everything with every race yet also get blamed for everything.

      • No they don’t. Take a look at the numbers. 51% of murder victims are black, well over 95% of them killed by Blacks. 49% of murder vics are not Black, with about 15-25% killed by Blacks.

      • Blacks by a long shot create the most violence in this country. Don’t try to deny it. They kill all…each other….whites…. Babies….absolute barbarians!

      • only bacoz they is far more white people in numbers… If you run the percentages, than the average b1ack man in America kills 1,573% more people (both white and b1ack) than white suspects in America..

    • Uh you must’ve missed this guys lilly white father. Smh He claimed “mixed race”, didn’t support “black lives matter” and was a conservative republican….sounds more white than anything to me.

    • Too bad he’s one of y’all huh? He’s a half white multatto and raised white. Most mass shooters have are white or have white blood.

      • when are all you people going to wise up to o’bama’s hate filled talk an actions has set this country back 50 years

      • You racist bigot. That is an undeniable falsehood. Most killing exist in 3rd world countries. Those honestly are usually not white. Although whites are the most giving when it comes to donations to causes abroad and at home. Also whites tend to make a school shooter into a internet sensation making money on people’s pain.

        • The racist bigot I was referring to is black says. The guys is a black man who is doing his best to push racist propaganda against a certain white group of people. Wanna know why white people are mad? Because they are the scapegoat of the entirety of human history and are told how terrible they are and how good they have it everyday and how everyone one should hate and loath white people. And if a white person defends himself he is racist. Stop the racism. The democrats love racism they will fuel it and never let it die. They need it.

    • The guy says he is of mixed race and it’s obvious from his pictures that the mix include Caucasian, so what do we do about the violent white population?

    • He is reported to be mixed race – 1/2 this and 1/2 that. If it is white and black – please remember that he is genetically predisposed to bothe races – mental disability from whites (since almost all white shooters ALWAYS have mental illness as reported in the news and escape death row!!!!) and violence from both!! Watch what you say or write it could boomerang back to you!!

      • Funny how he is a registered independent and was quoted by his father as saying he can’t wait to vote for Hilary. All you libtards are reading is his dating site, like anyone tells the truth on a dating site!

    • Yeah, black people dropped the bomb on Hiroshima, terrorized themselves with burning crosses and swinging ropes, and nearly genocided Jews and Native Americans off the planet. All humans have a proven record of being capable of unspeakable violence, but let’s just be racist and say black people are the problem. Maybe if we kill them all, the violence will stop?

    • I personally don’t care for any low life scum bag dirtbags. Be they white, black, brown, re,or yellow. I think we need to set our foot down on the muslin wearers

    • The Oregon shooter’s mother is Black, the father is White, he is bi racial like Obama. Obama really feels for him. Read Obama’s book “Dreams of my father” where he is very much against bi racial marriages for the stress that it puts upon the child.

    • You are one of MANY ignorant and racist white people who try to blame other people for the problems that YOUR ancestors including those today created. Your people killed thousands of African Americans over a span of hundreds of years for the color of their skin and got away with it, so maybe the race that started this whole problem should be demolished from this world. If that were to happen, this world would be a MUCH better place. *takes a bow

      • Hate to burst your bubble you dumb fucking nigger but YOUR ancestors sold your own people into slavery we didn’t steel them. Even your own kind don’t want you filthy stinking monkeys around.

    • The Murderer was not black or white…he was mixed race. So he shouldn’t be identified as black or white, that’s racist. Also, whether you are black, white, Middle eastern, Asian or Hispanic, each race has very violent people so please shut up.

  1. They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    -Benjamin Franklin

  2. Why is ‘heroic’ in quotation marks in the first fact when speaking about the officers? If anything it should be bolded. Quotations indicate the word is used in irony. These officers are heroes, the saved countless others while putting themselves directly in the line of fire.

  3. With hardly a heartbeat of time passing, the “president” blamed the shooting deaths of 10 people (including the gunman) on the lack of gun control in America. In his “news conference,” which was a tirade against the Second Amendment, he said, “Well, this is something we should politicize…This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America…So the notion that gun violence is somehow different, that our freedom and our Constitution prohibits any modest regulation of how we use a deadly weapon, when there are law-abiding gun owners all across the country who could hunt and protect their families and do everything they do under such regulations doesn’t make sense.”

    Let us be reminded that the majority of mass killings in the US have been perpetrated by Islamists or Nazi sympathizers–who were allies in World War II and have very similar beliefs against Christians and Jews. The shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer was a mixed-race 26 year old who identified with the Nazis, praising the mass shootings at Columbine and Sandy Hook–this according to the UK Daily Mail. Reports are that this mentally ill man specifically asked his victims one by one if they were Christian before saying “Good, you’ll see God in a second.” Then he gunned them down. The “president” should examine how gun laws don’t work and how his own rhetoric against Christians has possibly encouraged such hate.

    Oregon, along with 18 other states, requires universal background checks before firearm purchases. Like most liberal feel-good laws, the background check didn’t work. In states and cities where gun control is the strictest, gun crimes are the highest. That’s why the “president” wouldn’t cite the statistics. Gun control allows the criminals to have guns and the law abiding to be the victims. The belief against guns at Umpqua Community College was so vigorous that it was a “gun free zone” with only one unarmed security officer. Now nine sons and daughters are the cold victims of another type of insanity–liberal belief that criminals and crazies won’t get guns because of laws and good intentions.

    Worse yet, is a “president” that uses every opportunity to politicize the deaths of Christian Americans by pitting people against one another. This was a crime against Christians–something the “president” didn’t mention in his rant. He and his Administration released a report in 2009 demonizing conservative pro-life Christian gun owners as extremists. His silence is deafening as an estimated 500,000-plus Christians have been massacred by Muslims in the wake of the Arab Spring supported by the “president.” And in his remarks in the aftermath of this mass killing, he ignores that Christians were asked their faith and killed because of it, and blames guns. This brings to mind the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 24:9, “Ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” Sadly, even by our own “president.”

    • The largest mass murderers in history were Atheists. They were NEITHER ‘nazis’ nor ‘moslems’.
      I suggest you read about the Jewish-Bolshevik-Communists that took over Russia and murdered over 65 Million White people from 1917-on.

      Europe and Europeans are known as Christendom. Jews reject Jesus as the Christ, remember?

    • Too bad Arthur that your comment is full of lies…the majorities of mass murders are committed by whites…the shooter label himself as Sa consevative Christian …so there goes your liberal theory….the 2 admendment said nothing about every Americam owning guns…stop the bullshit…

      • Rock you are a fool. The little nigger kid was a registered Independent and is quoted by his parents as saying he couldn’t wait to vote for hilary. He only said he was a Republican on a dating website days before the shooting, he wrote it to mislead morons such as yourself.

    • Obama is a Christian. You are not. You are a racist. By definition, racists like you cannot be real Christians. Burn in Hell, false prophet hypocrite.

  4. Really, anyone could of made that profile. You think governments don’t have the power to cover up shit. Especially at a convinient time for the current office.

  5. 4chan, what garbage humans. The FBI needs to follow that site under a microscope. They would catch a lot of child molesters and school shooter. Clean the scum out of the internet.

  6. Need to get over the race and gun control shit. How many blacks will die in Chicago today and nobody gives a shit?

    • Gang banger’s can kill twenty people but it never hits the national news as a “mass shooting” by them. Some idiot shoots two people at a school, one other and himself and it’s a mass shooting worthy of national news…


    • Niggers are the cursed sons of Cain and they know it, that is why they act like the way they do. We do not need gun control in this country, what we need is nigger control.

  8. Why are any of the five items listed something we need to know? We shouldn’t even know his name. Why don’t you list 5 things we need to know about the victims?

  9. why is a cop considered a damn ‘hero’ (as noted in fact: 1) for doing the damn job he was hired to do? The term is applicable to the dude who was shot 7 times while trying to save others.

    • Well said¡¡ He asked if a person was Christian or not,if they said yes, he killed them with one or two shots.He shot that man 7 times shows me that he got pleasure out of that plus possibly showing he knew this guy had a grew chance of surviving…

  10. No TRUE Conservative would EVER ask someone their religion and blast them away just because they were a Christian. I smell a lying rat who either posted himself as such out of disdain knowing what he was going to do and everyone would look for his postings or someone changed his profile on line.

    • I get the feeling that Chris was a complete phony about everything.Take for example if he was just out to kill Christians why shoot the non Christians in the leg.Chris was a all time loser who felt the only way to become known was to shot lots of people and was interrupted by the quick responce of the police.

  11. On a dating site, he says he identified as a “conservative republican.” (We all know that nobody ever lies on dating sites!)

    Can we get the real information? Was he registered to vote at all? If so – which party was he officially affiliated with? C’mon “Heavy”, how about fact-checking the shooter’s statements and claims?

    • He was registered as an Independent and was quoted by his father as saying he couldn’t wait to vote for hilary.

  12. Why does his ethnicity matter? You people make me sick to my stomach. The only thing that matters are the families that lost loved ones, including his own. This is a deranged individual who was outcast.

  13. I love “american’s”!!!! They are so funny killing themselves. It’s fantstic that this only happen un U.S.A. fucking crazy bastards. They arrest a muslim guy for making a clock but they can’t prevent this kind of events, I can’t wait for whats next!!!

  14. you didn’t post the copy of his voter registration card that stated he was an Independent. You also left out the comment by Kortney Moore where she stated that he was targeting Christians.


    • Thomas Jefferson said, “The greatest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against TYRANNY in government!” The correct solution to the problem would be to get rid of the GUN FREE ZONES since every damned one of these situations have happened where people were not allowed to carry a firearm!!!!!

  16. This man is no conservative republican. Conservative Republicans are Christian, Pro-constitution, anti-gay marriage, anti-establishment, pro military, pro legal immigration and do not meet the criteria of anti-religious anti-Christian. A conservative nutt would most likely shoot up a Gar Pride parade or a planned parenthood establishment. This man does not fall into the M.O. of conservative. The Oregon gunman who lined up his victims and asked specifically which ones were Christians before shooting them execution style had a special interest in “magick” and “spiritualism” and had joined a dating website called “Spiritual Passion.” On the site, Christopher Harper Mercer, 26, who killed nine people and injured seven at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg before he was shot and killed by police, describes his politics as “Republican” and his interests as “killing zombies,” meditation, the occult and punk-rock music. He also made clear that he had a disdain for organized religion. Using the handle “IronCross45,” Mercer describes himself as a “not religious,” man who lives with his parents. He belonged to a group on the site who shared common interests in “magick and the occult.” Under the category of “Religious Views,” Mercer wrote that he is not religious but is “spiritual” and was interested in “pagan” and “wiccan.” Although there are lots of Pagan and Wiccan Republicans, the vast majority of individuals who practice alternative religions are quite Liberal and not Conservative. I believe that he said he was Republican to bring bad press to the party and the current status quo among most liberals is to blame Republicans for gun violence and poverty (even though The most violent cities in America are under Democrat rule, as well as the most impoverished ones.).

  17. You should take his coward’s evil face, name, and information about his worthless pitiful life down. His name should be erased, his face should be erased, as if he never existed. He never should’ve lived.

  18. It’s just crazy to me the angles that the media chooses to highlight or mainly talk about with these sort of situations. The big deal here is that this was a hate crime on Christians and this dude worships the devil. This is what ever should be paying attention to because we live in a society now where atheist are being given power and Christian standards and beliefs (what this country was built on) are being snatched away and stepped on. There are more people like him out there and the government is giving them a license to hate/kill.

  19. Seems like this country has made a 180 degree .prejudice and racism is well and alive. Stop the stereotypes. And just live life as Jesus did.stop blaming .it matters not the race just love each other. Make life beautiful.

    • Go stand on a Chicago street corner, preach your rhetoric and see how long before the brothers rob you blind and beat you down. You can’t teach these subhuman savage niggers so save your breathe.

  20. If you would please, remove his name from all of your articles. This is what these people want. Refer to him as POS. Please. Think about society rather than yourselves.

  21. please show common sense fellow Americans and get the sheriff John Hanlin, fired. If Japan could change its constituion to protect American lives then why can’t Americans change their own to protect the public? If people take action such as this then the politicians and people in power will have no choice but to respond to our demands. REMOVE JOHN HANLIN AS SHERRIF NOW,

  22. His sperm donor father is a jew owns a bagel shop in thousand oaks, ca.(Noah’s Bagel’s) where he regularly sexually harasses his employees and customers alike(male and female!) he is a liberal atheist bi-sexual who bought the poop dropping guns to further the liberal agenda.



  24. white people killed 1.5 million people in Iraq / Afghanistan. add to that the native genocide, the African holocaust, Vietnam, the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Slocum, Tulsa and Rosewood Massacres – not counting the red summer of 1919 and I think you’ll find white people have killed far more people.

  25. He committed suicide.He was on a terror watch list.he was mentally ill.He wanted the attention the media left lavishes on murderers.recent convert to islam,an ISIS suppporter
    One old “my space” bio, OMG see!!?!?!? HE WAS A CONSREVATIVE REPUBLICAN!!
    The left has become so willfully ignorant,they have altered their own DNA,there is no hope for them.

  26. The Oregon shooter’s mother is Black, the father is White, he is bi racial like Obama. Obama really feels for him. Read Obama’s book “Dreams of my father” where he is very much against bi racial marriages for the stress that it puts upon the child.

  27. I don’t know if ‘4chan’ and ‘innocent’ belong in the same sentence, but that’s a whole ‘nother article. It doesn’t surprise me he identifies as a conservative republican, though I find his brand of republican, while vocal, is thankfully a small minority. This is what happens when a whole segment of a political party roots itself in fear, fear of others, and blaming everyone else for the failures in their own lives.

    I have learning disabilities. I am Attention Deficit, and it takes a great deal of will power to keep focused on things. I suffer from a form of Dyscalclia, a condition where my brains wireing makes certain forms of analytical thought processes very hard, in this case, certain aspects of math (I am horrible at multiplication, but excel at division, which usually, for most people, its the other way around, and I cannot process algebra at all). I have a physical deformation in my short pallet that effects my speech patterns, and I had to spend 5 solid years working with a speech pathologist. I was always a quiet person because it was easier for me to be quiet than to open my mouth, speak, and give bullies more ammunition.

    I had a sadistic princebal who is no longer allowed to work in the school system in America because she was abusive to me and other students.

    I was beaten down by life throughout much of my primary and secoundary education. I had learning disabilities when schools and teachers were only just now bothering to learn what they are and how to work with them. by the time I graduated highschool (c average student), I was an emotional wreck. I had little confidence, and had a handful of friends.

    it took me years to gain confidence, and develop ways to become successful. I now have one degree, working on a second, and am preparing to work to get into a highly competitive M.F.A. program.

    the main difference between me and this shooter is that I make no excuses, and I blame no one else. I am only going to climb as high as I drag myself up with the skin of my own teeth.

    I don’t need to cling to guns to feel like a man. I don’t need to bring others down to feel like I am accomplish things.

    I am a kid who grew up with a painfully debilitating speech impediment who now is doing 4-5 plays a year as an actor. I don’t fear speaking, I excel at it. The speech impediment is still there; physical deformations don’t go away.

    I am sick of people who act all misunderstood, and abandoned. he abandoned himself.

  28. Waiting for Tommie Cleary to place himself in the line of fire sometime just to protect people he doesn’t even know. Then we’ll call this “writer” also “HEROIC”
    Until then don’t minimize the courage of those first responder police officers who are indeed HEROIC without any qualifiers from any weasel such as Tommie-the-amateur-writer, sitting safely behind his desk, spewing his subpar critique at those brave cops.

  29. Why does the U.S. Even allow these people to purchase guns, everyone knows a nigger at the trigger is nothing but ttrouble?

  30. One fake shooter inspired by another fake shooter who in turn was spouting recent talking points of the current administration. I am sure all of this is totally real. The shooters have been working pretty hard ever since Obama went into his second term promising to do something about the 2nd Amendment. It is an awesome coincidence to be sure.
