School Notes:

  • Roseburg High School is the only high school in Roseburg, Oregon, United States.
  • Shooting incident: At 7:45 a.m. on February 23, 2006, 14-year-old freshman Vincent Wayne Leodoro shot and wounded a fellow student, 16-year-old sophomore Joseph Monti, using a 10mm pistol. The incident occurred in a courtyard on the Roseburg High School campus. Monti was hit by three shots in his back, and a fourth grazed his elbow. After the shooting, two students followed Leodoro and flagged down a police car as he walked away from school. Police confronted him at a nearby restaurant parking lot, where Leodoro put a gun to his head before surrendering.
  • According to witnesses, the faculty at Roseburg High School reacted just as they had been trained, effectively initiating a lockdown on the campus until police secured the scene.
  • Marine recruiter claims he was assaulted: In May 2006 a Marine recruiter made national news by claiming "a Roseburg High School student had spit on him. The school then told the recruiter the student was just expressing his First Amendment rights". The story was later admitted to be a fabrication by the recruiter.
