Oregon Shooter Wasn't Just Targeting Students; He Was Targeting Us

As details emerge in a horrific school shooting yesterday that killed 10 people and wounded 7 more on the campus of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, chilling reports from victims and witnesses are revealing that the gunman wasn't simply shooting people at random or singling out those who had rubbed him the wrong way.

He was targeting Christians.

According to CNN, a heavily armed and body-armored gunman entered multiple classrooms and gunned down a professor and students. Then, according to one of the injured students, he told everyone who was a Christian to stand up.

When some stood, the gunman replied "Good, because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second" before shooting them.

The New York Post reports that a grandmother and granddaughter who were in one of the classrooms where the carnage occurred confirmed the account.

The granddaughter Bodhi Looney tweeted: “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian. If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

According to the Roseburg News-Review, 18-year-old Kortney Moore gave a matching account about how the gunman ordered people to stand up and state their religion before firing at them.

Gunman Chris Harper-Mercer later died during a confrontation with police. According to CNN, a law enforcement official credits the quick police response for preventing more deaths.
