The community of Roseburg, he says, is quiet.  The town has several big boosters of the college teams.

Madrid-Andrews is 20 years old.  He has grown up in an era of mass shootings, beginning with Columbine in 1999.

“Me being from Denver and being from Colorado, I’ve already seen it.  Like the theater shooting (in Aurora, Colo.) back in 2012.  Now I feel like it just happens,” he says.
