September 8, 2017 GMT

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has completed its investigation into the Umpqua Community College shooting, according to a press release.

The Douglas County District Attorney’s Office has determined that no criminal charges will be filed against anyone regarding the investigation, according to a press release.

“All investigative indications are that the shooter acted alone in this incident. The shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after exchanging gunfire with law enforcement officers when confronted,” the release reads.

As part of the release, the shooter’s manifesto was made public. In it, the shooter writes, “I have always been the most hated person in the world. Ever since I arrived in this world, I have been under siege from it.”

In a joint statement from Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin and District Attorney Rick Wesenberg, expressed their condolences and thanked public safety officers across the state.

“We ask the media to respect the collective voice of our offices, the survivors and the families of the victims by refraining from printing or airing anything which would shock the conscious of this community and promote this type of reprehensible behavior by would-be copycatters.

“Sheriff Hanlin reiterates his request to not speak or print the shooter’s name, as he does not deserve the attention he desperately sought,” the release reads.
