PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say at least one person is dead and multiple people are wounded after someone opened fire in a Portland, Ore., area mall filled with holiday shoppers.
Clackamas County sheriff's Lt. James Rhodes says he is still trying to get more details about the situation at the Clackamas Town Center, but the gunman has been "neutralized." He says he isn't sure whether the gunman is dead.
Authorities are going store-to-store to secure the scene, but Rhodes says there is no indication that there is more than one gunman.
A witness told KATU television that she saw people screaming and parents grabbing their children as they fled the mall.
That witness says the gunman had a rifle and was wearing a camouflage outfit and a mask.

Anyone else just hear what they said about gaining access to the suspect for fingerprints? Some where near a Barnes and Noble? Maybe I misheard..but to me that would mean he was dead.

Still more reports of casualties on radios
Thoughts go out to all involved, if the vendetta mask is true then that doesn't look good with "project mayhem" starting tomorrow.
Could this mean that this mall incident is "government sponsored"?
A pre-emptive subversive move to f up tomorrow'a news perhaps?
Not that I don't feel for all involved and am not deeply concerned.
It's just that being that we are on a conspiracy site and all...edit on 11-12-2012 by FinalCountdown because: (no reason given)
