A gunman wearing a white mask ran into the Clackamas Town Center mall outside Portland, Ore., on Tuesday afternoon and fired up to 60 shots from an assault rifle, killing two people and seriously wounding a third, before killing himself. Police haven't released the names of the shooter or any of his victims, or speculated on the motive. The assailant opened fire outside Macy's and near where Santa Claus was set up, shouting "I am the shooter!" according to Macy's employee Austin Patty, 20. "He was trying to get to the mall to do a mall massacre."
