One of the victims in the Clackamas Town Center mall shooting has been identified as Steve Forsyth of West Linn, the Oregonian reports:
Aviano Marconi, who now lives in California, described Forsyth as a friend and mentor for nearly eight years when they both worked for Entercom Communications, which owns radio stations ini Portland and across the country.
“He was an amazingly talented and supportive person,” Marconi wrote in an email. “He always took a big brother role with me early on in my Portland radio career.”
Marconi said Forsyth was general sales manager during the time he worked with him. “His advice was so genuine. You could tell he actually cared and wanted to see me succeed .. I can’t believe anyone could extinguish his life. He was inspiring and full of positive energy and great stories.”
A fifteen year old girl, Kristina Shevchenko, was wounded by the gunman, but is said to be doing better today and is listed in stable condition. The names of the gunman and the other victim have not been released.
