PORTLAND, Ore. - The Clackamas County Sheriff says the gunman who opened fire inside Clackamas Town Center didn't know the two people he killed.
Sheriff Craig Roberts says the shooter shot at random, "trying to kill as many people as possible."
Deputies haven't released the names of the victims or the gunman, who police say shot himself. A spokesperson at Oregon Health and Science University Hospital says the one person wounded in the shooting, Kristina Shevchenko, is in serious condition.
Sheriff spokesman, Sgt. Adam Phillips, says the shooting could have been much worse. He says the 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.
