From USA Today: The masked gunman who shot up a crowded suburban Portland, Ore., mall, killing two people and himself, was identified by authorities Wednesday as Portland resident Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22.
Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said the shooter didn't appear to be targeting anyone in particular when he entered the Clackamas Town Center on Tuesday and fired as many as 60 shots.
He said the death toll would have been higher had the shooter's rifle not jammed and law enforcement responded within minutes of the first shot. Still, the sheriff called the shooting a "heartbreaking tragedy by any standard."
