  • 1:05 p.m. Of the three people shot by a gunman at a crowded Oregon shopping mall, only one survived: a 15-year-old girl whose family said was recovering after the bullet missed major organs.
    Two people were killed in the shooting Tuesday: 54-year-old Cindy Ann Yuille, a registered nurse who was described as “everybody's friend” and 45-year-old Steven Mathew Forsyth, a father of two.
    Family says Forsyth was a loving husband,owner of a business in the mall, and a youth sports coach. Yuille's family says Cindy was a caring person.
    Authorities say 22-year-old Jacob Tyler Roberts went on a shooting rampage inside the mall before killing himself. There's no indication Roberts knew the victims.
    The family of 15-year-old Kristina Shevchenko says the girl is recovering. It was her second brush with death this year. In August, a man veered his car into the opposite lane and crashed head-on into a van carrying Shevchenko and relatives.
    10:35 p.m. PORTLAND, Ore. — Police say the gunman who killed two people and himself in a shooting rampage at an Oregon mall was 22 years old and used a stolen rifle from someone he knew.
    Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts says that Jacob Tyler Roberts had armed himself with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and had several fully loaded magazines.
    Roberts says the rifle jammed during the 22-year-old's attack, but he managed to get it working again.
    The chief says authorities don't yet have a motive.
    A U.S. law enforcement official has told The Associated Press the shooter did not have a criminal record. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss details of an ongoing criminal investigation.
    Two people were killed, and another was wounded.
