3 dead in Oregon mall shooting


CLACKAMAS, ORE (WKOW) -- Three people were killed and one injured when a gunman opened fire at a suburban Portland, Oregon shopping mall Tuesday evening.

Authorities say the gunman shot and killed himself.

Clackamas County sheriff's Lt. James Rhodes says law enforcement who flooded the Clackamas Town Center in response to the afternoon shooting didn't fire any shots.

Witnesses described a scene of chaos and disbelief as a gunman wearing some sort of camouflage outfit and a white mask shot an initial burst of fire and then more rounds near the mall's food court.

Many shoppers fled and others hid in the backrooms of stores.

Oregon's governor praised first responders for reacting quickly to the shooting.
