Oregon Mall Shooting — Teen Survivor in Serious Condition
A teenage girl wounded in a shooting spree at an Oregon shopping mall that left three dead, including the suspected gunman, is in serious condition, a hospital official said today.
Kristina Shevchenko was one of at least three people shot when a man wearing what appeared to be a hockey mask opened fire with a rifle at the crowded Clackamas Town Center in the Portland suburb of Happy Valley.
Police will release the names of the victims and the shooter at a news conference at noon Chicago time today.
Shevchenko’s name was released by the Oregon Health & Science University Hospital on authorization of her family.
“The family is doing OK,” Shevchenko’s brother, Yevgeniy, said. He said his sister was 15 years old and declined further comment.
In a Facebook posting Tuesday night, Yevgeniy Shevchenko said: “As of now she is stable and sleeping. the bullet went through bruising her lung, it missed any vital organs and it missed her ribs. she will need 2 more operations. we appreciate any and all support including your prayers! thank you.”
