Police say the threat has been neutralized at Clackamas Town Center, but at least one person is dead. People are now being escorted out of the mall.
Stephanie Prohaska works at Hot Dog On A Stick. She says she was in the back of the store getting some supplies. When she came out, everyone was running out of the mall and stores were closing down. She says a woman came running by the store to say close down immediately. So she rushed into the bathroom and locked the door.
"Well I'm pretty freaked out," Prohaska says. "I'm shaking. I've was crying for a while, because they haven't found the guy so I don't know what's going on. "
She says she's waiting for her regional manager to text her when she can leave. Texts are how she's keeping up with this fluid situation.
