PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police says three people are dead, including the gunman, after a shooting at a shopping mall in the Portland, Ore., area.

Clackamas County sheriff's Lt. James Rhodes says the gunman fatally shot two people, and another person was wounded, in the Tuesday afternoon shooting at the Clackamas Town Center.

Rhodes says the gunman is also dead but he would not say how he died.

Hundreds of holiday shoppers and store employees evacuated the mall after the shots rang out around 3:30 p.m. Many others hid in stores, and Rhodes says deputies are going through the mall to get them out.
