It was told to KATU.com that an Oregonian sports columnist John Canzano had hear people as many as 60 shots were fired.

The teenage gunman was said by many people at the mall to have been wearing camouflage on at least his t-shirt and a bullet proof vest. One person interviewed by NPR named Austin Paddy who was an employee at Macy’s said the Oregon Mall shooter announced himself as he walked through the mall shooting people saying, “I am the shooter.” As the gunman kept firing people ran through the mall trying to take cover in store backrooms.

Another employee at the Oregon mall shooting in Clackamas told CNN, “I thought I was going to die. The gunshots were so loud, it was very scary. Kids were crying. Parents were crying, too.” Some Christmas shoppers in the mall thought for awhile that the shooting was some kind of joke. Once people heard the screams, saw people’s faces and witness people trying to hide it all became reality.

On a video that is from KOMO 4 news an official said an AR-15 rifle was used in the mall shooting and secured at the scene. People were asked to evacuate the mall with their hands up in the air.

    Had the gunman been on a revenge shoot out, had he been seeking to target anyone in particularly or was this all indiscriminate shooting? Which augers another question, why today, what had finally snapped in the man’s head that he needed to go out there and inflict such horrific carnage? And then even more strangely if he had come dressed for battle why did he in the end choose to fatally shoot himself?

    Or could one even wonder perversely that the man hadn’t necessarily come to kill an entire town but simply to take a whole community and country hostage with his self capitulation, ensuring himself finally a melodramatic exit from a life that increasingly as for many Americans has begun to lose value or meaning and led to some choosing a guns blazing glory self demise?
