6:02 a.m.

Authorities investigating a deadly mass shooting at an Oregon community college say they have found a number of firearms at the gunman’s apartment.

Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told television stations in Eugene, Oregon, early Friday that investigators were at Umpqua (UHMP’-kwah) Community College and the shooter’s nearby apartment throughout the night. He says investigators will release details on the number and types of weapons later Friday.

Officials identified the gunman as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer and say he opened fire at the college Thursday, killing nine people and wounding seven others before dying during an exchange of gunfire with officers.

Hanlin also says investigators went door to door in the neighborhoods near the college and the shooter’s apartment to try to learn more details.
