A suspect who fired about 50 shots in the parking lot of a crowded Southern California shopping mall, sending shoppers sprinting for safety, was cooperative when officers took him into custody, authorities said Sunday.

Witnesses said people ran, screaming and ducking for cover, when 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola fired into the air and onto the ground Saturday afternoon near the Macy’s department store at the open-air Fashion Island mall in Newport Beach.

He paused to reload several times, police said.

Then Gurrola put the gun down and offered no resistance when bicycle officers arrested him around 4:30 p.m., said Lt. John Lewis.

“He just gave up,” Lewis said.

Investigators have no motive, Lewis said.

Gurrola, of Garden Grove, was charged with shooting at an inhabited dwelling. He was being held Sunday on $250,000 bail. Police recovered a handgun and ammunition.

Officials said one person suffered a minor injury while running away, and was treated at the scene.

The gunfire caused panic, coming a day after a gunman killed 26 children and adults at a Connecticut elementary school, and days after a deadly mall shooting in Oregon.

The mall, near Pacific Coast Highway in the heart of Newport Beach, was crowded with holiday shoppers and the parking lot was full. Many people ran into stores, a movie theater and other businesses.

“It’s a miracle nobody got injured,” said Sven Maric, who said he was celebrating his wife’s birthday at a restaurant patio about 50 yards away. “The bullets had to land somewhere, and he shot so many.”

Some stores voluntarily closed their doors and kept shoppers inside while police investigated.

Bret McGaughey, 22, of Laguna Beach, said he was with his mom in the Apple store when shoppers ran to the rear of the store as employees locked the front entrance. He estimated that up to 100 people stayed in the back of the store for about 30 minutes until Apple employees announced that police said it was safe to reopen the doors.

Gurrola is a licensed security guard whose firearm permit expired in 2001, according to the Orange County Register, which cited state records.

Gurrola doesn’t appear to have a criminal record, the newspaper said.

A telephone number for a Marcos Gurrola was disconnected.

On Tuesday, a gunman at an Oregon shopping mall killed two people and wounded a third amid a holiday crowd estimated at 10,000 people. Clackamas County authorities are still trying to determine why the gunman opened fire before killing himself.

1:58 PM EST             Wednesday December 12, 2012

Investigators identified a 22-year-old as the gunman responsible for shooting three people — two of them fatally — at a mall in suburban Portland, Oregon.

Sheriff’s investigators believe that Jacob Tyler Roberts acted alone in what they described as a “heinous, horrible, tragic crime.”

There were no immediate answers to the questions the community of Happy Valley had after the Wednesday shooting at the Clackamas Town Center: Roberts’ motive remained unknown, and there was no apparent connection between the shooter and his victims, officials said.

The man and woman who were fatally shot were Cindy Ann Yuille, 54, and Steven Mathew Forsyth, 45.

The gunman hastily moved through the Macy’s at the mall and toward the food court, located on the second floor, where he opened fire, the sheriff’s office said.

The shooter then went down a corridor and out a back hallway that led downstairs, where he is believed to have shot himself.

Roberts was wearing a load bearing vest — which many confused for a bulletproof vest — and was armed with a semi-automatic rifle.

The rifle jammed at one point, but started working again, the sheriff said.

The injured woman was identified as Kristina Shevchenko by officials at the Oregon Health and Science University Hospital. She remains in serious condition, the hospital said.

The families of the other victims, Yuille and Forsyth, provided brief comments through authorities, but asked for privacy as they mourn their loved ones.

Yuille was remembered as a “everybody’s friend” who put others first.

Forsyth was the father of two children with a great sense of humor and a “zest” for life, his family said.

Mall patrons were paralyzed during the shooting, as shoppers had no clue where the gunman would fire next.

Entire swaths of Clackamas Town Center turned silent. The only sounds were the blasts from the man’s rifle and the ensuing screams. Even the mall’s Santa dropped to the ground.

“I thought I was going to die,” mall employee David Moran said. “The gunshots were so loud, it was very scary. … Kids were crying. Parents were crying, too.”

Kira Rowland was holding her 6-month-old baby in Macy’s when the shots rang out.

“I threw my baby into the stroller and just started running, because everybody was screaming and everybody just started to run,” she said.

Inside Clackamas Town Center

The gunman wore a hockey mask and jogged through Macy’s wielding a rifle, a woman told CNN affiliate KOIN.

As some panicked customers bolted for the exits, others ducked under store counters or hid behind racks of clothing.

The suspect announced aloud that “I am the shooter” as he ran through Macy’s, said witness and store employee Austin Patty.

The shooter carried a rifle “like you would see in a video game.”

As the shooting started, Patty ran out of the store, warning everyone in his path that there was a shooter on the loose and ordering them out of the store.

The sheriff’s office confirmed that a rifle and a mask were recovered from the scene.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance footage to get a better picture of what happened.

The Clackamas Town Center is located in Happy Valley, Oregon, a suburb of Portland.

Erin Quackenbush-Baker was in a vulnerable position — in the middle of the mall at a kiosk with her grandmother and three young children.

“My 5-year-old was covering her ears and crying. I was frantic to find a place to run, and I looked back (at) my son in my stroller and glass is falling over us,” she said. “The shots were getting closer, and it sounded like he was getting closer.”

“I felt like sitting ducks, where we were.”

During a brief halt in the gunfire, a man helped rush the family into a nearby Sephora store. That’s where Quackenbush-Baker and her children hid for an hour, “waiting to see if we were going to be shot or not.”

As word spread that the shooter was moving from store to store, customers at Sears burst into tears, Christina Fisher told KOIN.

“We were told to stand in a group by the top of the escalators and stay away from the windows out of the aisle. … We stood there for probably a good 20 minutes,” she said. “All of the sudden, somebody came through with a radio, yelling, ‘Get down!’ ”

As the melee unfolded, some customers watched television news reports about the shooting from inside the Sears entertainment center, Tylor Pedersen told affiliate KGW.

Antonio Charro spotted a wounded woman near a cell phone store and tried to help, but to no avail.

“She had apparently been shot in the chest, and I couldn’t get her turned over to help her,” said Charro, who had been shopping at the mall with his daughters. “There was no one around. She wasn’t breathing.”

Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said about 10,000 people were in the mall at the time.

No law enforcement officers fired any shots when they arrived, sheriff’s Sgt. Adam Phillips said.

The 1.4 million-square-foot mall will remain closed Wednesday as investigators look for clues about the attack.

Rowland said she’s grateful she got distracted while shopping and didn’t venture farther into the mall.

“I think if I hadn’t stopped to smell that perfume, that maybe me and my baby wouldn’t be here today.”

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 9 to 18 are ruled by the second letter of the name.

Kristina Shevchenko

r is the 18th letter of the alphabet

So the number 18 rules her ages nine to eighteen.

18 = Surreal.  Horrifying.  Like a bad dream.

The suspected gunman is among three people dead in a shooting that took place at the Clackamas Town Center Tuesday afternoon.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the adult male shooter, along with two other victims, were killed. The shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. At a Tuesday night press conference, sheriff’s Sgt. Adam Phillips said investigators have tentatively identified the shooter, but are waiting for full confirmation before releasing his name.

A female teenager was transported by ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University with traumatic injuries. She sustained one gunshot wound, according to hospital officials. At last report she was in serious condition.

Investigators believe the gunman acted alone. Phillips said the victims were shot in an “open area” of the mall. According to Phillips, officers did not fire a single round during the response.

Phillips said law enforcement were still combing the mall Tuesday evening for any people that may be injured, or could still be hiding.

“I know that we got many calls from 911,” Phillips said. “The Clackamas Town Center security guards and employees all did the appropriate things. I heard many people locked in place, many people ran.”

The sheriff’s office released no details about a possible motive. It also did not confirm what kind of weapon the man was carrying.

Dispatchers with the Clackamas County Department of Communications said the shooting was first reported at 3:30 p.m. Witnesses told KOIN the gunman, who appeared to be wearing a Halloween-style mask, entered the mall through a rear entrance at the Macy’s store on the north side of the mall.

“Today, there was about 10,000 people at the mall, so there were a huge amount of people running in different directions, and it was chaos for a lot of citizens,” Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said at the press conference.

Witnesses inside the mall reported hearing multiple gunshots, anywhere from 15 to 20, or even more.

“There were five to seven gunshots, machine gunshots, right outside my store,” said Jacob Rogers, who works at Champs Sports. “And then we ended up later seeing a clip just on the ground, between us, and ‘Forever 21’ and ‘Macy’s Home Furniture’… There were three employees and five customers in my store, and we all ran to the back, and we could see in my camera that shows our store entrance… SWAT team getting here fast, and then police here armed, yelling at us to close the gate.”

The town center was evacuated and placed on lockdown and surrounding roads and highways were shut down. Three triage areas were set up near the mall’s movie theater.

“At first no one really knew what was going down,” said Mario, who works at a kiosk inside the mall. “We heard six shots at first, and then people scattered like crazy, everybody left.”

“The shots were really loud and really scary… It was echoing all through the mall, so nobody knew where it was coming from at first,” witness Larisa Tereahova said.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the mall, which is located at 11900 Southeast 82nd Ave. Witnesses tell KOIN they were ushered into stores and told to hide while SWAT teams canvassed the area. People began to be let out of the mall at approximately 5 p.m.

The mall was to remain closed through at least Friday. Philips said anyone who may have left personal items in the mall should check the town center’s website Wednesday for information on how to retrieve it.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families,” Governor John Kitzhaber said in a statement. “I appreciate the work of the first responders and their quick reaction to this tragic shooting. Oregon State Police Superintendent Rich Evans is on the scene. I have directed State Police to make any and all necessary resources available to local law enforcement.”

For hard-core Justin Bieber fans it was an opportunity not to be missed. The pop star put out the word over Twitter on Sunday that there were 500 tickets available for an unannounced show Monday night at the Apollo Theater. All one had to do to get two of them was to buy $168 (plus tax) worth of his new fragrance at Macy’s in Herald Square.

By the time the stores doors opened on Monday morning, there were more than 200 fans, mostly teenage girls, crowded outside, and some had been waiting overnight, clerks at the store said. They streamed into a special promotional counter surrounded by live-size cutouts of Mr. Bieber, jostling for position and laying down the money they had borrowed from relatives or somehow scraped together.

More than 300 of the tickets disappeared by 11 a.m., going off in the pockets of beaming girls with brightly colored packages emblazoned with the words “Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend,” which is not only the name of the flowery fragrance he has marketed, but also the fervent wish of many of those who bought it.

Shari Alston, 14, a student at Public School 71 in the Bronx, said she joined her friend Kailani Garcia, 16, and rushed to the store as soon as their half-day of school was over. They are longtime Bieber lovers, going back to the days four years ago when he was still a YouTube star and had yet to be discovered by a major label. Last week, they camped outside Rockefeller Center from Wednesday night until Friday morning – skipping school – for a chance to see Mr. Bieber perform on NBC’s “Today” show.

Both girls had borrowed $200 from their grandmother to get the Apollo tickets, which came in a bag with two bottles of perfume, hair mist, body lotion and a copy of Mr. Bieber’s new album “Believe” (RBMG/Island).

“We knew about him since he first was coming out, before he was even famous,” said Ms. Alston, an aspiring dancer. “Any chance we get, we go.”

Some parents were pulled helplessly along by their teenage daughter’s infatuations with Mr. Bieber.  Earlier in the morning, Gordon Dinsmoor, 42, an air traffic controller from Chicago on vacation in New York, had told his 14-year-old daughter, Cassie, that she would not be able to attend the Bieber concert in Chicago this fall because of conflicting vacation plans. Then she and her sister, Bri, 15, saw some beaming girls carrying the Bieber packages in Macy’s and asked where they had gotten them.

Because the two girls are too young to attend without a chaperone, Mr. Dinsmoor ended up shelling out nearly $400 for four tickets with their accompanying vials of perfume. “I have an extra ticket,” he said, looking slightly shellshocked, as his girls bounced on their toes in excitement, their shopping bags full of perfume over their arms.

Some women in their early 20s were not immune to Bieber fever. Talia Sherman, 23, who works at Macy’s, said she couldn’t resist the chance to see him sing in a small theater. “A thousand screaming girls and Bieber? Who wouldn’t want that?” she said. “I love all pop but he’s got that swag.  You know, chilling by the fire with the fondue.” (She acknowledged she would give the fragrance – a scent reminiscent of roses, juicy fruit and ivory soap — to her little sister.)

Such arch love of kitsch was lost on the younger fans, for whom Bieber is serious business. Lissane Kafie, 14, of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, could barely control her emotions when her father, Dr. Cristian Kafie, handed her the bag with the tickets and perfume. She and her family were on vacation in New York, shopping and seeing the sights as an early gift for her 15th birthday, which is celebrated with a lavish coming-out party in Latin America.  But the chance to see her idol in a small theater was more than she had hoped for from the trip.

“Where do I begin?”  she said, her eyes welling up. “I love his songs. I love his hair. I love his eyes. And his smile.  I love his past. He was so humble.”

Dr. Kafie grinned. For a father, he said, $168 is not a lot to pay to see his daughter bubble over. “For the happiness of my daughter on the eve of her 15th birthday?” he said. “No problem.”
