Mall Employees Remember Clackamas Town Center Shooting Anniversary

A year after Jacob Roberts opened fire in Clackamas Town Center, those who where were in the mall that day are looking back.

On the afternoon of December 11 last year, Hot Dog On A Stick manager Stephanie Prohaska spoke with OPB while hiding in the bathroom of the mall, “I’m pretty freaked out. I’ve been shaking. I was crying for a while, because they haven’t found the guy. So I don’t know what’s going on.”

Now, 12 months later, Prohaska is still managing the store and a little worried about the anniversary.

“Yeah, I am a little bit nervous about this coming week,” she said. 

“I feel secure because the mall, they did say they’d have extra security on that day. But the overall environment, I mean we all came together after the event.”

Cindy Yuille and Steven Forsyth were killed in the shooting. Kristina Shevchenko, was shot in the chest, but survived.

An investigation found no motive for the shooting.
