Family members told the Asheboro Courier-Tribune that Christopher Mintz, 30, was shot five times. Mintz was a 2003 Randleman High School graduate who has been living in Oregon for the past six years.

Ten people were killed and nearly a dozen others were injured during the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

“We are all very upset,” said Mintz’s aunt, Wanda Mintz,. He recently returned from spending a week with his son in Roseburg, Ore., where he now lives, according to the newspaper.

Chris Mintz works and is a part-time student at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. Thursday was his fourth day of classes.
