3 dead in Oregon mall shooting

CNN) -- Panicked customers rushed to the exits when a gunman opened fire Tuesday at a mall outside Portland, Oregon. Some people huddled behind store counters and hid behind racks of clothing. The mall's Santa dropped to the ground.

Three people were killed, including the shooter, said Lt. James Rhodes of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. One person suffered a traumatic injury, he said. The shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot, Rhodes said.

Authorities did not release details about the gunman or the victims.

Witnesses told CNN affiliates that many people ran for cover at the two-story Clackamas Town Center mall, located about 11 miles southeast of downtown Portland.

A woman told CNN affiliate KOIN that she saw a man wearing a hockey mask jogging through Macy's and wielding an assault rifle.

"Everyone ran toward the exits at that point to get out," she said.
Outside Macy's, gunshots echoed where a man portraying Santa Claus was snapping photos with kids.

"I heard two shots, then 15 or 16 more shots," he told CNN affiliate KGW. "I hit the floor."

Inside Sears, some customers cried as word spread of the shooter going store to store, Christina Fisher told KOIN.

"We were told to stand in a group by the top of the escalators and stay away from the windows out of the aisle. ... We stood there for probably a good 20 minutes," she said. "All of the sudden, somebody came through with a radio, yelling 'get down!'"

A group of customers inside Sears watched television news reports about the shooting inside the store's entertainment center, witness Tylor Pedersen told CNN affiliate KGW.

Pedersen said he heard about the shooting when people ran into the store, saying they had heard shots fired in the middle of the mall.

"I didn't think it was real at first until I saw the reactions on their faces," he said. "They were serious."

Nicole Sutton said she heard gunshots echoing and saw people huddled in the store where she works at the mall.

"It's the scariest thing I've ever experienced," she told KOIN.
Gov. John Kitzhaber praised first responders for reacting quickly to the shooting.

"I have directed State Police to make any and all necessary resources available to local law enforcement," he said in a statement.

Authorities closed entrances and exits into the mall parking lot Tuesday evening, said Lt. Gregg Hastings of the Oregon State Police.

A spokesman for General Growth Properties, which owns the mall, referred questions about the shooting to the sheriff's office.

"Our hearts and prayers are with everyone who was in the mall at the time of this incident," said David Keating, vice president of corporate communications. "Our priority is always for their safety and well-being."

If the gunman only managed to kill 2 people in a busy mall I'm guessing he was targeting someone specific.

My family goes to this mall quite often. Reports are his gun jammed or a lot more people would have been killed/shot. He then killed himself, it could have been a lot worse. Early reports were some sort of body armor maybe, a white mask. 2 dead, one injured and then he shot himself.

He killed himself with a jammed weapon.

You know, instead of outlawing guns they need to outlaw fucking body armor so these assholes can't go around shooting people without the fear of being shot themselves. Just sayin'.

The thing I don't understand is, why wear a bulletproof vest if you're going to off yourself? Shows a lack of commitment to me.

If you're in a mall with an assault rifle and you can only kill two people you're pretty incompetent.

Ah. Okay. That makes his poor performance more excusable.

But as I think about it, he didn't prepare very well. Every homicidal psychopath knows that you carry backup weapons. This guy really didn't have his act together.

(No disrespect intended to the victims.)
