Police say the man who opened fire in a suburban Portland shopping mall apparently killed himself after fatally shooting two people and wounding a third.
Clackamas County sheriff's Lt. James Rhodes says law enforcement who flooded the Clackamas Town Center in response to the afternoon shooting didn't fire any shots.
Witnesses described a scene of chaos and disbelief as a gunman wearing some sort of camouflage outfit and a white mask shot an initial burst of fire and then nearly 60 more rounds near the mall's food court.
Many shoppers fled and others hid in the backrooms of stores.

The mall is closed while the investigation continues.

No further details were immediately available from the Clackamas County sheriff's office.
