oregonshootingOn October 1, 2015, a crazed killer went on a shooting spree at Umpqua Community College and opened fire in a classroom.

At least 9 innocent people were murdered by a cold-blooded killer.

According the New York Post, the killer was specifically targeting Christians during his shooting rampage.

The shooter lined up people and asked if they were Christian. If they said yes, CNN reports the killer said “Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second.”

The deranged killer then shot his classmates and teacher in the head, point blank.

Authorities have released the names of the 9 victims who ranged from ages 18-67 and paid tribute to their lives.

Fox News shows a video clip of the names being read and honored and CNN listed the names of the victims and statements from their families.

Many of the victims were young teens just beginning their lives. Others had overcome great odds.

According to USA TODAY, Lucreo Alcaraz was 19 and won scholarships to cover her college tuition. Jason Johnson was 33 and after overcoming drug abuse was in his first week of college.

Rebeka Carnes was only 18 years old and People issued a quote from her family who is overcome with grief but remembers Rebecca with love:

“Rebecca accepted people and was kind. She lived with an authentic sweetness about her, the twinkle in her eyes standing as the only reminder that the quiet and serious girl before you was only a joke away from laughter and silliness.

She was a real person with real dreams who was just beginning her life,” the family’s statement continued. “She was Christian. She had imperfections, but she was perfect for our family.”
