Clackamas Town Center Shooting Near Portland: At Least 2 Killed, 60 Shots Fired

Police say the man who opened fire in a suburban Portland shopping mall apparently killed himself after fatally shooting two people and wounding a third.

Three people are reported dead, and four or up to seven people area reported injured at the Clackamas Town Center mall in Clackamas, Oregon. The shooter is reported to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No police officers fired any of their weapons. One person is reported to have been critically injured.

Police first received reports about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday that the offender was wearing a white hockey mask and a vest and possibly body armor. Witnesses reported that the offender walked into a Macy’s entrance and began shooting. The gunman walked north across the first floor to the food court, and continued shooting. The gunman moved to the second floor — possibly using a stairwell. An empty gun magazine was found at the Macy’s Home Store. Best Buy Mobile glass shot out. Witnesses report up to 60 shots were fired. The rifle used by the shooter has been described as an AR-15. The gun apparently jammed. A fully-loaded magazine was found on the floor after the area was secured.

Multiple ambulances and a Flight for Life helicopter responded to the scene along with numerous law enforcement officers.

Managers of Clackamas Town Center say the mall will remain closed on Wednesday.
