Lack of Security? Jason Edward Kinsfather, 49, Shot and Killed at 7-Eleven in Portland, Oregon
Local news reports that Jason Edward Kinsfather was shot and killed in a 7-Eleven parking lot at 11549 NE Glenn Widing Drive in the Parkrose neighborhood. At this time, it is unclear what led to the shooting. Police are still investigating the incident. A man who lives behind the 7-Eleven, in a tent, told reporters, “There were a ton of cops . . . there’s shootings everywhere, especially around here there’s always gun shots.”
Google reviews suggest there have been prior problems with people loitering in front of the gas station.

“Gas stations are increasingly becoming danger zones – hots spots for violent crime. There appears to be an increase in reported carjackings, shootings, and assaults at gas stations throughout the country.”
Mickelsen adds, “Gas stations should install quality exterior and interior cameras, regularly monitor cameras, remove loiters on the property, maintain a criminal trespass list, and where necessary, hire an off-duty office to patrol the premises.”
