ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - The latest on the deadly shooting at a community college in Oregon (all times local):

8:05 a.m.

Students are returning to class at the Oregon community college where a gunman killed nine people and wounded nine others.

The Umpqua Community College campus reopened last week, but Monday marks the first day of classes since the Oct. 1 shooting. Volunteers and comfort dogs will be on hand to provide support.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown will join college President Rita Cavin and student body president Tony Terra in welcoming students throughout campus.

The college will be closed to the media for most of the day.

The shooter, 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer, shot his victims in a classroom before exchanging gunfire with police and then killing himself.
