UCC shooting victims remembered on three-year anniversary

MEDFORD, Ore. —  Today, marks three years since a gunman opened fire on the Umpqua Community College campus in Roseburg killing nine people and injuring 8 more.

Today, the victims and survivors are being remembered at UCC and beyond.

Students, staff, affected family members and law enforcement went to a private ceremony at 10:15. A public memorial is also assembled on campus from sunrise to sunset.

UCC’s flag was half-staff along with a floral arrangement displayed around the campus flag pole paying tribute to both victims and survivors.

Many gathered around while bagpipers were playing and a moment of silence was observed.

Today, we’re remembering those lost that day:
