PORTLAND – One person was shot Tuesday inside a Fred Meyer store in Clackamas, according to sheriff's deputies.
The suspect was in custody and both that person and the victim were taken to local hospitals.
A witness told KGW reporter Mike Benner that his family was in line at checkout when a man behind them tried to look at their PIN number as it was being entered. An altercation ensued, and the suspect shot the customer in the leg.
"I heard a big gunshot. It was loud," said customer Phyllis Rowley. "I looked up and the cashiers were dropping us to the floor and rushing us to the back of the store."
A 911 caller reported the shooting at about 3:40 p.m. at the Fred Meyer store located near Interstate 205 and Highway 212.
Fred Meyer officials said other store customers helped to take down the shooting suspect.
The gunshot victim had a non life-threatening wound. The other person's injuries were not specified.
"It's crazy," said customer Lorri Hoogs. "What's the world coming to?"
The store was closed while police investigated, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. It reopened around 8 p.m. Volunteers were also called in to counsel witnesses and employees.
Officials were reviewing video surveillance and interviewing witnesses.
