    A masked gunman at a Portland mall shot and killed two people Tuesday night and injured a teenager before killing himself, early reports indicate. While the exact rundown of events is still murky, reports from the scene indicate the masked gunman walked into the Clackamas Town Center—where up to 10,000 were estimated to be shopping—and fired up to 60 shots into the crowd. Among those shot was the mall Santa. Police said the carnage could have been much worse, except the shooter's gun reportedly jammed. Police are expected to release the name of the shooter as well as the victims' identities on Wednesday.
