(AP) Oregon Gov. Kate Brown says the gunman in a deadly mass shooting at a community college was a 20-year-old man.

Police say the man is dead after killing 13 people and injuring at least 20 others at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, about 180 miles south of Portland.

Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin says authorities received calls from the college at about 10:30 a.m. reporting an active shooter in one of the classrooms.

Officers responded and found the gunman on campus. Hanlin says they exchanged gunfire with the man, and he died in or near a classroom.

Hanlin didn’t say whether the gunman killed himself or was killed by police.
