Umpqua Oregon Gunman Identified
At least 10 people were killed and nearly dozen others wounded in a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. on Thursday.
CBS News has reported that Chris Harper Mercer has been identified as the gunman in the shootings at the Community College.
According to the theailybeast.com a MySpace account belonging to Christopher Harper-Mercer is registered to Torrance, California. Harper-Mercer and his mother previously lived in Torrance before moving to an apartment in Winchester, Oregon.
The MySpace page features a photo of Harper-Mercer holding a gun and smiling into the camera. The profile includes images of pro-Irish Republican Army propaganda.
An online dating profile, linked to Harper-Mercer's e-mail address and featuring another photo of him, says the 26-year-old was living with his parents and searching for the "yin to my yang."
It identifies his views as "conservative, republican," and lists "organized religion" as one of his "dislikes."
