Clackamas Christmas Shooter a 22 Year-Old Sociopath – Jacob Tyler Roberts

Police are going to release more details on the Clackamas Christmas shooter later this morning.
For now we know he was 22 years old and a sociopath.

The shooter murdered two innocents before committing suicide.
Oregon Live reported:

An unidentified gunman, acting alone, fired up to 60 shots before killing himself. The original reports of two dead were confirmed as the only fatalities. One 15-year-old Portland girl was taken by ambulance to OHSU Hospital, where she was in serious condition Tuesday night.

Officials declined to identify the victims.

The gunman died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Lt. James Rhodes, a Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said at a news conference. The gunman, reportedly 22, has been tentatively identified, but police did not release his name.

We now know the name of one of the victims.
FOX 12 reported:

One of two people shot and killed at the Clackamas Town Center mall has been identified as Steve Forsyth, of West Linn, FOX 12 has learned through sources.

…Forsyth owned a marketing agency in Portland, and formerly worked for Entercom Communications, which owns radio stations in the city.

More on the shooter Jacob Tyler Roberts.
The Oregonian reported:

Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, was the masked man who stormed into Clackamas Town Center Tuesday afternoon, fatally shooting two people and wounding another before turning a gun on himself, police said.

Roberts does not appear to have a criminal history in Oregon, according to court records. He had two speeding tickets earlier this year.

Court records show that Roberts and a woman, Hannah Shoemake, were evicted last summer from their Happy Valley apartment.

    another one who slipped thru the cracks of the mental healthcare industry?

    I already know ALL the details… same as every one before

  • wtd

    Witholding identities of the victims AND the murderer?

    Begs the question, would these identities reveal motive?

    If any of you do not know what Sociopath means ?

    The next two words that come close to defining one would be Liberal Democrat…

    The fact that only 2 were killed in a crowded mall is nothing short of miraculous. They should say sociopath and terrible shot (thank God).

  • Sam Stone

    I have been waiting for these types of shooting for years. A target rich environment just as schools are.

  • JDR

    Victims will be either “infidels” or “eggs” or “sheeple”.

    It’s a Muslim, or a Leftist, or a Zeitgeistian lefty like Loughner.

    Let me guess:

    1. He was a quiet loner.

    2. The victims should have shot him first.

    3. It’s all very sad and entertaining especially when you learn the details of the victims (shopping for a dying grandmother or recovering from leukemia or something like that).

    4. Nothing can be done about it because nothing can be done about it.

    5. We’re ready for the next shooting spree!

  • JDR

    …basically someone with no moral foundation and loads of “self-esteem”.

  • Jozan

    60 shots fired and 2 fatalities? Probably the first time he ever fired his weapon.

  • JDR


    Care to make a point?

    Another “crazy guy” sane enough to pick a gun-free zone. Let me guess… He’s a leftist mouth-breather with a facebook page full of anti-capitalist screeds and closet full of Che shirts. Of course, the media will ignore all that.

    Jeff Cooper once said the Cole bombing wasn’t an act of terror. It was an act of war. That’s how I feel about this. These shootings are all carried out by leftists. Sure they aren’t right in the head. Violent radicals rarely are. But as long as we live in denial when Leftist nutjobs shoot up theaters or punch Crowder we’ll always be in real danger. Because the Left declared war. Ignoring that doesn’t keep us safe. These aren’t isolated incidents. Not with the Left constantly demonizing us and pushing for violence.

    Inevitable result of the current social policy in each state that makes it impossible to institutionalize the mentally ill.

    Politicians apparently believe a loons right to freedom trumps public safety. Hey, we elect these idiot politicians and we reap the whirlwind.

  • Bill Castello

    In the good ole USA, instead of health care and psychiatric care, we give you assault weapons and plenty of ammo!

  • JDR

    Bill Castello

    Do you believe that this person was “given” — by the current United States Government — weapons and ammo?

    Because that wouldn’t really surprise me at all, at this point.

    Another Century Cinema marquee…another masked assassin….a remarkably detailed copycat crime or another graduate of the shadow government hypno psycho killer who was programmed in deep sleep by a scientology cult therapist for a kamakazi murder suicide mission.

    12 + hours is WAY too much time to purge the internet of real data on the killer and his family and plant a government fabricated photo shopped identity into the web. ALL these psycho killers get away with hidden identities. The media NEVER looked into Jarred Loughner’s parents…their communist background…their jobs on the public payroll…personal ties to Gabby Giffords…it was all about Sarah Palin and the Tea Part. We got nothing on James Holmes family background…the sikh temple shooter Wade Page nothing on his family and their associations….but plenty of media bullying on what rights we all need to surrender.

    Just wait until Django Unchained comes out, and Zimmerman is released.

    Then it will be.
