CLACKAMAS, Ore. - The Clackamas Town Center, scene of a mass shooting on Tuesday, will reopen Friday, officials said on the mall's website and Facebook page.

"We will reopen tomorrow morning, December 14, at 9 a.m. Additionally, we will be holding a candlelight vigil for the victims and the community," the post read Thursday morning. "Please continue to keep the victims, their families and the entire community in your prayers during this difficult time."

The vigil will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday at the mall entrance near the Starbucks.

Claiming items left the mall

Shoppers who left items at the mall during the shooting will be able to reclaim them during regular mall hours on December 14 and 15.

People can pick up items next to the management office on the lower level of the mall. The office is down the hall between AT&T and The Buckle. After Saturday, items can be picked up in the mall security office near the food court.

If you left items in a retail store, the mall encourages you to check with the store first.

Transit service resumes

Meanwhile, TriMet said it will resume regular operations on Friday at the Clackamas Town Center Transit Center and mall bus stops.

However, beginning at 1 p.m., the buses will once again detour from the parking lot using the same route and serving the same temporary stops as they have been since Tuesday's shooting.

TriMet has scheduled afternoon detours to run through Sunday, officials said.

Two people were killed and a teenage girl was injured when a gunman, identified by investigators as Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle inside the mall Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators said Roberts shot and killed himself inside the mall.

Steve Forsyth, 45, of West Linn and Cindy Ann Yuille, 54, of Portland died in the shooting. Kristina Shevchenko, 15, was shot  and seriously injured. She remains hospitalized.
