A tweet sent out by an allegedly Islamic State affiliated Twitter account claimed responsibility for yesterday’s Umpqua College Shooting carried out in Roseburg, Oregon by Chris Harper Mercer. The tweet was sent out by @K_H_O00, but the account has since been suspended by Twitter for terrorist propaganda. A screen cap can be seen below:

The tweet screen cap lacks a time stamp but the phone screen cap states “4:07 p.m.” The tweet reads:

Again #Oregon #USA #WashingtonDC #IslamicState #ISIS #USA

A meme that states “Slay Americans” in front of a man being beheaded is also visible.

As of now there is no evidence that Mercer was influenced by the Islamic State in carrying out yesterday’s attack that killed nine people. However, witnesses said the gunman told the students in a classroom to stand up and state their religion before he began firing away, the News-Review, a local newspaper, reports.

A very dishonest piece of journalism. Read the tweet. It certainly praises the incident, but I see nothing to suggest it is claiming responsibility. It does nothing of the sort

The article didn’t say the tweet was honest. The whole article is about confusion and multiple stories. So just learn to read.

the fact the millions of Americans are asking one another that very question is quite telling to say the least
