#HNNGunViolence Washington State Mall shooter now in CUSTODY!

The suspect has been identified as 20-year old Arcan Cetin, a native of Turkey. The motive of the shooting is still unknown, but police stated that terrorism is not suspected. Police say four of the five victims were women who were shot and killed at the Macy’s makeup counter. 

The fifth victim died Saturday morning as police inspected the entire building. According to surveillance footage the suspect entered the mall unarmed, but ten minutes later he was seen walking into the Macy’s with a “hunting type” rifle, which was recovered at the scene. 

Police said Arcan Cetin was arrested in Oak Harbor at around 6:30 p.m. while walking down the street — one night after the shooting at Burlington's Cascade Mall sparked a massive search for the suspect.

Island County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Hawley said he had spotted Cetin from a patrol car and recognized him as the suspect.

"I literally hit my brakes, did a quick turn, I jumped out," Hawley said. "We both jumped out with our guns, and he just froze."
