Police and medics at scene of a multiple shooting at Clackamas Town Center Mall, Clackamas, Oregon/AP
It's been a difficult few days not just for the people and the families caught up in the tragedy of a shooting at a Portland, Oregon mall, but for the gunman's mother as well.
Simply put, Tami Roberts says she's devastated.
Roberts says she has been proud of her son his whole life until now and like so many others, she wonders why.
"Never could I imagine him being a part of something like this," says Roberts. "They told me that my son was dead and that he had shot all those people, at Clackamas Town Center."
Roberts says she was technically Jake's aunt.
She took him in when he was just two years old after his biological mother, her litter sister, died from Hodgkin's Disease.
Roberts says she's very sorry for what her son did.
