Mall shooter identified

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Clackamas County Sheriff has identified the man who opened fire inside Clackamas Town Center. 

Sheriff Craig Roberts says Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, lived in Portland. The sheriff says he has no prior criminal record. Roberts say the man shot at random, "trying to kill as many people as possible." 

Deputies say Roberts shot himself.

Deputies say haven't released the names of the two people killed. A spokesperson at Oregon Health and Science University Hospital says the one person wounded in the shooting, Kristina Shevchenko, is in serious condition.

A sheriff spokesman, Sgt. Adam Phillips, says the shooting could have been much worse. Stores and police followed training from a shooting drill at the mall earlier this year.

Clackamas Town Center is one of the Portland area's biggest and busiest malls with 7,000 customers, 185 stores and a 20-screen movie theater. The mall employs 2,000 people.
