Gunman opens fire inside Clackamas Town Center Mall

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The mall Santa was waiting for the next child's Christmas wish when shots rang out, causing the shopping mall to erupt into chaos. About to invite a child to hop onto his lap, Brance Wilson instead dove for the floor and kept his head down as he heard shots being fired upstairs in the mall Tuesday afternoon.
Austin Patty, 20, who works at Macy's, said he saw a man in a white mask carrying a rifle and wearing a bulletproof vest. There was a series of rapid-fire shots in short succession as Christmas music played. Patty said he dove for the floor and then ran.
