Person opens fire at mall near Portland, Oregon:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies say there has been a shooting in a shopping mall near Portland, Ore.


One witness at the Clackamas Town Center told television station KATU at least two people were shot, and he saw sheets put over them.


Another witness told the station she saw people screaming and parents grabbing their children as they fled the mall.


That witness said the gunman had a rifle and was wearing a camouflage outfit and a mask.


Another witness said ambulances were arriving at the scene.


Entrances to the mall have been blocked off.


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

Keep me posted, guys. This is the kind of news story I love. Tragic and close-to-home-enough as to where discussion is relevant and allows me to show how empathetic and caring I truly am, at least for a few minutes. But it's also far enough so it doesn't actually change my life in literally any way!

Win/win for me!

What I've never been able to understand is why go to a store and shoot the place up, just to kill yourself later?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Really? It seems like the easiest thing about all of this to reconcile. If you're crazy, which obviously he is, and he's probably going to kill himself, which I would submit he was going to do whether or not he went to the mall, then why not? Likely this maniac had a grudge with life, his own or the way he perceived people treated him or whatever, and decided if he wasn't going to live, neither could they. At, I complete am aware that it's speculation, but it's just so easy to make a crazy excuse for a crazy person that it surprises me that you wouldn't understand it. It's basically an offshot of the jealous husband 'if I can't have you, no one will' murder-suicide mentality that happens way, way too much.

Maybe to escape punishment, or maybe self-inflicted punishment on account of the guilt felt afterwards. Thats all I got.

Really? You like to hear about people being shot? The news story I would really love is Harper resigning or Palestine and Israel come in peace. Not tragic news stories that have victims in it. It is kind of sick and sadistic that you love these news stories.

read the part that comes after the bolded section

i'm making fun of people like you

keep pretending to care

it's worthless, irrelevant information. you read it because it's tragic and shocking, not because it serves you any value

The world is often closer than you think .. just when you think tragedy could never happen to you, it reaches out and grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shakes the living sh*t out of you .. tempting fate lowers the odds I've heard ..

are you suggesting that this article will somehow prevent tragedy from "grabbing me by the scruff" of the whatever and doing whatever?

should i start copy/pasting news articles from crimes in bourdeaux, then? what about kansas? what about nairobi? to what extent do you consider world news to be 'local news' that you can justify as being somehow relevant?

does this somehow make your family's local news relevant to the vast majority of people on a vancouver based sports forum?

No but it doesn't make you any less of a pretencious douche.

If people want to be shocked or give their well wishes to a situation not involving them, why stop them? Sure it probably doesn't help but it doesn't hurt either
