Expert Speculates Shooter’s Motive

MEDFORD, Ore. — A motive behind the man responsible for the Clackamas mall shooting has yet to be determined. Jacob Roberts did not have a criminal record or any known health issues.

“The truth is, most people with mental illnesses don’t act like this and more frequently what we do see is that people who do engage in the killing of innocents around them, do so without any psychiatric history,” explained local psychiatrist Dr. James Hammel.

Dr. Hammel said Roberts recent break up with his girlfriend may have caused some high irrational emotions.
