WASHINGTON (AP) — A law enforcement official says the suspect in the Oregon mall shootings is 22 years old and has no prior criminal record.

The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak about an ongoing criminal investigation.

Police say the gunman who opened fire on shoppers at the mall in Portland on Tuesday had no connection to the two people he fatally shot and wanted to kill as many people as possible. Police have not released the gunman's identity of the gunman.
