A shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon killed at least 10 people and left more than 20 others injured Thursday. The shooter has reportedly been detained.

Police responded to reports of shots fired around 10:40 a.m. Law enforcement officials said a gunman stormed classrooms in the science building on the Umpqua campus in Roseburg, CNN reported.

"We arrived to find multiple patients in multiple classrooms. Law enforcement was on scene and had the shooter neutralized," Douglas County Fire Marshal Ray Shoufler told the network.

The suspect was described as being "down," according to scanner reports, though it's not clear if he is injured, dead, or alive.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives officials and canine teams responded to the scene to check for explosives, ammunition, or other weapons, according to CNN.
