The Oregon gunman committed suicide once he knew he was about to be captured.

The Douglas County sheriff said the man responsible for the deadliest shooting in Oregon history died by suicide…

Sheriff John Hanlin made the announcement at a news briefing Saturday in Roseburg. The sheriff, without using his name, said autopsy results showed the gunman took his own life…


Shortly after the news conference, the gunman’s family released a statement:

“We are shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific events that unfolded on Thursday, October 1. Our thoughts, our hearts and our prayers go out to all of the families of those who died and were injured.
