3 dead, including gunman, in Oregon mall shooting

PORTLAND - (AP) Police in Portland, Ore., say they've tentatively identified a gunman who opened fire at a busy mall Tuesday, killing two people and wounding another before he also died.
 
They did not immediately release his name.
 
Witnesses say the gunman wore a white mask and a bulletproof vest, and said, "I'm the shooter," before he opened fire in Clackamas Town Center.

Clackamas County sheriff's Lt. James Rhodes says the gunman fatally shot two people, and another person was wounded, in the Tuesday afternoon shooting at the Clackamas Town Center.

Rhodes would not say how he died.

Hundreds of holiday shoppers and store employees evacuated the mall after the shots rang out around 3:30 p.m.

Many others hid in stores, and Rhodes says deputies are going through the mall to get them out.
