The Portland Police Bureau has been in contact with local school districts, community colleges and universities to coordinate any public safety needs at the schools.

The bureau has also offered law enforcement assistance, as needed, to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and Oregon State Police as the investigation continues in the days ahead.

The Oregon Attorney General said at least 13 people were killed in the Umpqua Community College shooting. The sheriff of Douglas County confirmed the shooter exchanged gunfire with law enforcement and is dead.
