By AFP     Oct 3, 2015 in World

The 26-year-old gunman behind a mass shooting at a college in Oregon that left nine people dead committed suicide after a shootout with police, authorities said Saturday.

"The medical examiner has determined the cause of death of the shooter to be suicide," Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told reporters.

He said the shooter was enrolled in the class where the killings took place.

Hanlin said investigators were poring through numerous leads and had interviewed hundreds of people, including neighbors and family members of the shooter, to try to determine what set off the rampage.

He said 14 weapons belonging to the shooter had been recovered, including six at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg where the massacre took place.
