WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch says she is “shocked and appalled” by the “monstrous” shooting at an Oregon community college.

Lynch made her remakes Friday in an address to the Massachusetts Medical Society where she was participating in a summit on opioid abuse.

A gunman killed nine people at Umpqua Community College on Thursday. The shooter died in a shootout with police.

Lynch said: “The Department of Justice is already on the ground assisting local law enforcement and we will continue to do everything we can to support the Douglas County community going forward.”

She added: “My heart goes out to all those affected by this heinous crime and I know that the entire Justice Department family … will keep the victims and their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.”
