‘Hero’ Umpqua Community College Student Chris Mintz Speaks After Being Shot 7 Times

ABC News

The student and Army veteran who witnesses say charged the shooter at a community college in Oregon is alert and awake at the hospital as he recovers.

Chris Mintz, 30, was shot seven times during the Thursday rampage, but he says his main concern is about the others who were injured.

“I just hope that everyone else is OK,” he told ABC News this morning.

The man’s actions in the fatal shooting, where 10 people died and seven, including himself, were injured, did not go unnoticed by his peers.

“He ran to the library and pulled the alarms and he was telling people to run, grabbing people, telling them, ‘You just have to go,'” witness Hannah Miles told ABC News.

“He actually ran back towards the building where the shooting was and he ran back into the building and I don’t know what happened to him,” she said of Mintz.

Mintz’s cousin launched a GoFundMe page to help pay for his ensuing medical bills.

“During the shooting both of his legs were broken and he is going to have to go through a ton of physical therapy,” Mintz’s cousin Derek Bourgeois wrote on the page.

“He is a father, a veteran, a student, and now he’s a hero,” Bourgeois wrote on the GoFundMe page, beneath a picture of Mintz and his son.

Mintz is far from the only veteran at the school, with the school’s interim president, Rita Cavin, referencing how the military subset of the student body may be particularly affected in the coming days and weeks.

“The ones that were shot, that’s one level of trauma,” she said at a news conference Thursday. “There’s psychological trauma; we have veterans with PTSD on our campus. They had a particularly bad day.”

  1. If he were a true hero in this false flag , he would have been armed and took out the alleged gun man with his own carry weapon before any fakers got shot or killed

  2. For a guy who was just shot 7 times, he sure wears a happy face. You would think he would be sedated for pain or out of it from coming out of surgery. One big happy camper, looks like to me.

  3. All BS another Staged event, If I could afford it, I’d challenge these people to prove to me they are real, I’d fly out there to the Hospital, offer a donation of a couple thousand bucks if they show me the wounds and full identify themselves, and let me document their whole rehab process,

    anyone who has had a real gunshot or explosion trauma knows these f’krs are all lying….

    Guys shot 7 times, and he’s not completely sedated, BS….goes for all these maggots,

    The Virginia News crew shooting (you know the one where no casings ejected from the faker gun) the “Survivor lady who was shot what, twice with Hollow points at close range, walking around giving interviews with in a week, just all crap….

    1. I hear ya, I took a double 00 to the shin at about 80 yards once and I couldn’t walk for 3 weeks. Glanced off my shin bone, left a neat little half circle on it and sat about half inch in there. My buddy fished it out. I was damn lucky it had bounced off the ground first.

      That was a Jim Beam day to say the least. There was no eff’n way we were going to the hospital and filling out a police report which is mandatory in such cases…..

  4. What really bothers me about the script writers for this latest “staged” shooting in Oregon is hearing that Christians were called to “stand up” and were shot. If you were there, would you have denied him scenario. It is so incomprehensible that these son’s of bitches could stoop that low it drives a guy to nausea.

  5. I wonder how many false flags will happen if Trump gets elected. Seriously, I would wager a lot of money this shit ends with an at least naive but, legit president in office that isn’t following the Rockefeller/Rothschilde script to a “T”. I guess that’s why they show the JFK assassination from a different (government camera) angle to the new president very quickly.

    1. It don’t matter which meat puppet they prop up on a stick, it’ll be the same agenda, “get those guns”.

      1. Vote for me.

        Fakery would be outlawed; the purveyors of said fakery would be dealt with severely, rendering future fakery from said individuals impossible.
        Chemtrails would stop. Police brutality reserved for only the most deserving. Torture would stop. The medical cabal would be dismantled. The machinations
        of control at every level would be modified.
        Oh, never mind… we all know they would never allow
        an honest, caring, person in (s)elected office.

  6. Listen up, guys. Real people were, in fact, shot. I work at one of the hospitals where some of these people were flown in for emergency surgery. Two of them are in critical condition and one is in serious condition. My co-workers took care of them, and some of them were still shaken up about it today.

    One of my co-workers, an avid hunter and gun aficionado, was especially shaken up, as he was a senior in high school when the Thurston shootings occurred in 1998, which left 2 people dead and 25 wounded. Some of you might remember that, but if you don’t, google it.

    I understand your skepticism that it was just another false flag staged shooting. After all, it looks a lot like all the other shootings of recent years…the “lone wolf” white, young, disenfranchised or mentally ill male with a sketchy background.

    I have watched hundreds of videos of citizen sleuths debunking the official narratives of these other shootings, showing crisis actors…victims with questionable injuries and a lack of blood equivalent to those injuries, who smile for the camera and seemingly recover in record time, and their family members, who also smile for the camera but never shed a tear. Facebook memorial pages for the victims that were created before their deaths. Holes in the official stories that don’t quite add up.

    Based on all of that, I was skeptical too, when I first heard of the Roseburg shootings yesterday. Oh, I thought, here we go again…another staged drill-gone-live to distract from the serious developments happening in the middle east, as well as rile up the populace, once again, into demanding more gun ownership legislation/confiscation.

    While we’re at it, let’s put surveillance cameras in, and enact TSA-style searches in all malls, theaters, colleges, churches, and military bases. Did I leave anything off this list? Don’t worry. There will be a shooting eventually there, too, likely around the time a drill is occurring.

    But this time, real people got hurt. They are fighting for their lives right now, which will never be the same. Please have compassion for these people, and direct your anger toward the people we supposedly elected, as well as the media, who are taking advantage of this unfortunate event to advance their agenda, which I don’t think I have to spell out for you.

    End rant. I’m going to check out that white surveillance van parked across the street from me now. 🙂

    Peace, Brothers and Sisters

    1. Dawn,
      nice post. funny how an isolated community with a population of 20k has a swat force the size of a metropolis, and dozens med evac vehicles on stand by wearing pink tees?
      just a thought

      1. Maybe they stuck around for the main event after the drill was over. All the ready-made photos shown by the media after the main event were probably taken during the drill, which might explain why it all looks so staged. SMH

    2. Thanks Dawn.
      I was awaiting your assessment, being as Iv missed the word for the last week and heard you had called in.

      I never read/heard he was white. I was able to glean his facebook and dating page profiles by friday and they lists him as bi-racial or mixed-race.

      The perps dating “looking for” line reads like a schizophrenic who is willing for anything. “soul-mate” and “one night stand”, plus others, withing the same line.
      I guess he is hoping a 1 night stand(to which he got none) will ‘evolve’ into a “happily ever after” event. SAD really.

      Still have not heard motive nor why he was allegedly popping “christians/Christians” in the head and all others in the leg??? Hell most “christians” are actually something else(501c3 jew apologizers).

      1. Hi Ryan,

        I was wrong about the shooter being white, but then, I am wrong about a lot of things (right, DirtNap?)
        Maybe I had that idea because I tuned in to CNN Thursday afternoon,which I never do, but wanted to see their spin, and they showed a photo-shopped picture of him appearing white. See this article:


        I guess the MSM had to alter his profile to fit the narrative of the crazy, white, loner gun nut they are pushing on the public, in order to garner more support for taking our guns away. I found some other stories suggesting his name is really Saiv Sharma, and that he is a recent muslim-convert.

        There are many other rumors and speculations out there in the blogosphere, but no hard evidence thus far, that I have seen. Anyway, check out that link, including the comments. There is some interesting stuff inside.

  7. Dawn, thank you for going over and checking the scene and giving us a first hand account. With all the smoke and mirrors they use in the media and psyops, it was good to have someone “on location” to sort through the propaganda. My heart felt sympathy goes out to the community of Rosebud and thank you for your contribution.
    It certainly does look like people were shot in this incident but it still doesn’t change the reason nor the agenda behind it.

  8. I think this case warrants a second opinion or verification before I’m buying it.
    That dude allegedly shot 7 times and smiling is convincing.
    Remember, there’s a lot of $motivation$ involved with these things…come on,
    they rent crisis actors on the cheap.

  9. “Mintz’s cousin launched a GoFundMe page to help pay for his ensuing medical bills.”

    $600,000 and counting, as of this morning.

    Lucrative ‘business’, eh?
