Two People Reported Dead In Oregon Mall Shooting

Two people have been reported dead at a shooting in the Clackamas Town Center in Portland, Oregon. Emergency officials are saying that one of these people may in fact be the shooter. At least three people were shot, and according to local authorities, between ten and fifteen shots were fired by someone wearing a hockey mask.

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots followed by mass evacuations all over the mall, and cops and ambulances quickly arrived on the scene. One witness said they saw the shooter holding a rifle and it “jammed, before he dropped a magazine onto the floor and ran into the Macy’s.”

One of the witnesses, local sports columnist John Canzano, said that people heard roughly sixty shots from the food court.

The Oregonian is tracking live updates from the scene, which you can follow here.

UPDATE: the Clackamas Country sheriff said during a press conference that the shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
