target like a random school. >> maybe it's fake, someone messing around on the computer. but at the same time it's scary and i'm not sure whether i should go to classes. >> students are being asked to be alert and report anything to campus security or police, especially if they see anything suspicious. live in the digital operations center this morning, i'm matt delucia. family members and loved ones gathered at an oregon ch k church last night. a victim who was wounded now says the gunman singled out a classmate before giving him an envelope and telling him, you're the lucky one, you'll live today. police are the envelope they're describing as an manifesto. the school campus is back open today but the classes are canceled. in the 24 hours following the shootings, there were a dozen shooting deaths around the country. more than 8100 people were
