I am sitting here watching the action from my office. Place is surrounded by scores of emergency vehicles. Apparently at least two dead and several wounded.

I guess that is why there were reports of two shooters. Someone had a gun and shot the bad guy.

Could be. Isn’t Oregon a concealed carry state?

"Someone had a gun and shot the bad guy.”

About 60 shots were fired, an employee at Victoria's Secret told Fox News.

Or, as usual, reports are sketchy, and more likely the guy shot himself or was shot (amazingly) by the police.

Blacks almost never do this kind of thing.

Amish are Moslems. Let’s keep it that way - it makes more sense and is hence, funnier.

It’s already been downgraded to just 20 shots fired:

http://www.oregonlive.com/clackamascounty/index.ssf/2012/12/callers_report_up_to_20_shots.html

*If* that was an AR-15 then that means the guy was probably taken down when he ran out of cartridges in his one clip. When he was changing out clips was a great time to neutralize him. Let’s hope that’s what happened.

Watching the local news, the witnesses are saying the police immediately rushed into the mall. Not like Columbine fortunately. Police say it’s likely only one shooter who’s been “neutralized”. Looks like every police car and emergency crew in Oregon is there. All very sad.

The name of the suspect will be withheld until his Facebook page (with all his “likes” for Obama, socialism, etc.) can be scrubbed from the Internet.

If someone shot the shooter then the MSM will say he shouldn’t have taken the law into his own hands. /sarc

Be interesting to see what kind of mask he used.
Maybe one of those V for Vendetta masks?

Poor choice of camouflage. It is supposed to make you less noticeable. In a mall, I think anyone walking around dressed as a tree looks very out of place.
