On October 1, Christopher Harper-Mercer, a 26-year-old student, fatally shot nine people and injured nine others on the campus. He killed himself following a gun battle with responding police officers.

Some witnesses said Harper-Mercer asked several students their religion before shooting them. Others said he asked if students were Christians, killing those who said they were, and maiming those who said they were not.
