THE ROSEBURG MASSACRE

Ken Berwitz Latest reports are that 13 (though other reports range from 7 to 15) students have been killed and many others injured (which makes a higher death toll very likely) in the massacre of students at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. It is also being reported that the killer is no longer active – meaning he has been captured alive or is dead.  I don\’t know...
