ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Umpqua Community College administration held their fourth annual Day of Remembrance to honor the nine victims of the Umpqua Community College shooting on Oct. 1, 2015.

UCC staff, students, community members, law enforcement and family members of the victims were all in attendance.

“It was a horrible thing,” said community member William Eifert. "It’s something I’ll never forget. It’s something I never thought would happen.”
