Oregon campus reopens after deadly shooting

Posted:

Faculty, staff and some students have returned to an Oregon community college for the first time since a gunman killed nine people last week.

Classes at Umpqua Community College won't resume until next week, but the campus reopened Monday to staff, faculty and students who wanted to pick up belongings they left behind when they fled the shooting last Thursday.

The gunman also injured nine people before getting into a shootout with police and then killing himself.

Chaplains and grief counselors were on hand to lend support. News media were not allowed onto the campus in the small town of Roseburg.
