Police has identified the masked gunman behind the Clackamas mall shooting as a 22-year old Jacob Tyler Roberts. This picture was taken from his Facebook profile, where he named himself ‘Jake Roberts’.More details have emerged about how Jake made his way through the mall:
Police said today that Roberts parked his car outside of the Macy’s department store at the mall, entered the mall on the second floor, and then “moved quickly” toward the food court, firing shots. . . Roberts’ gun jammed briefly while shooting at the food court, but he was able to continue shooting after it resumed working, police said.
Roberts then ran down a hallway and a flight of stairs to the first floor of the mall, near an REI store, where he apparently shot himself, police said. (Yahoo/AP)

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.
