Skip to comments.Clackamas Town Center shooting: Gunman was Jacob Tyler Roberts
Posted on 12/12/2012 10:49:42 AM PST by Uncle Miltie
Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, was the masked man who stormed into Clackamas Town Center Tuesday afternoon, fatally shooting two people and wounding another before turning a gun on himself, police said.
Roberts does not appear to have a criminal history in Oregon, according to court records. He had two speeding tickets earlier this year.
Court records show that Roberts and a woman, Hannah Shoemake, were evicted last summer from their Happy Valley apartment.
Roberts' mother answered her door at her Portland home, but declined to comment to an Oregonian reporter. "I loved my son very much," she said.
Interests include shooting. One profile pic is someone shooting a handgun.
His “About” says
“Hey what’s up guys my names Jake and I’m an alcoholic... Lol just kidding. If you were to ask someone that knows me they would probably say that I am a pretty funny person that takes sarcasm to the max. I’m the kind of person that is going to do what I want. There is no reason for another person to tell you what to do, I’m the conductor of my choo choo train. I may be young but I have lived one crazy life so far. My friends are my family and I don’t think that will ever change. I have done a lot for myself in the past year some good and some bad but I still press on. I like hanging out with my friends and having a good time maybe get a little drunk every now and then. I like to think of myself as a bit of an adrenaline junkie... Yup that’s right I’m a junkie lol. But I’m just looking to meet new people and see the world. Right now I work at the most badass gyro shop in town. I am one of the few people that can say I love my job and actually mean it. But if you want to know more about me send me a message. What’s up let’s party.”
Obviously, this is the girl.
Type of work wanted, according to the portfolio,
everything connected to the bright lights of showbiz.
Well, she’s got the bright lights now, but not the showbiz.
Earrings naturally,and not one , but two.
And, like John Walker Lindh, I’m curious as to what his muslim name was?
Kenyan earrings? Looks to be mixed race.
Clue? “In a relationship May 1 2012 (who not mentioned, but someone close marked “in a relationship October 17 2012”).
3 dead and 1 wounded. TV was SCREAMING IN PANIC last night.
We lost 4 at Benghazi. Silence.
He doesn’t look like a Christian, too many earings.Did he have single parent upbringing? My bet is yes.He looks like he could be a young fellow of mixed Phillipino/Caucasian background, who maybe played one too many episodes of Assassins Creed.
Those video games should be outlawed ! /S
What does that girl have to do with the shooting?
Lead article says they were living together.
Also had a missile launch from North Korea, but the media hears a man went and killed some people in a mall. They assume it is a white guy, so get hysterical... Funny how these shootings re used to scare everyone, in the inner cities of this country, people are shot and killed everyday, but the media doesn’t care because the shooters are known/assumed at the outset to be black.
Rifle was stolen.
I agree, it is racist to only report Caucasian shooters.
A Jake Roberts joined YouTube on 11/10/12. Has a Google+ account.
I’m guessing that there isn’t an opus. We’d have found it by now.
You’re being really rude to this guy...knock it off.
And yeah, the murder of 40 million babies in this country makes this senseless violence pale in insignificance.
This guy works/WORKED for an eatery, and shoots up a food court.
“I work at the most badass gyro shop in town.”
One of his FB friends works for an eatery that has one of it’s locations at Clackamas Mall.
Okay I am done with this.
Kid doesn’t read book, watches a lot of TV, and among his likes are “rappers” Tech N9ne and Brotha Lynch Hung.
IOW, all the makings of a soulless POS, which are a dime a dozen nowadays.
Don’t think the Hannah girl mentioned was involved with him anymore, but just speculating.
Jason DeCosta, a manager of a window-tinting company that has a display on the mall’s ground floor, said when he arrived to relieve his co-worker, he heard shots ring out upstairs.
DeCosta ran up an escalator, past people who had dropped for cover and glass littering the floor.
“I figure if he’s shooting a gun, he’s gonna run out of bullets,” DeCosta said, “and I’m gonna take him.”
Lots more here:
Fair enough. Agreed, looking like a mundane POS snapped.
Was worth looking, as perp-generated data sources tend to disappear not long after such events.
