Arcan Cetin, 20, an immigrant originally from Adana, Turkey, was arrested near his Oak Harbor home almost 24 hours after he allegedly opened fire in the make-up department of Macy's in Burlington's Cascade Mall, killing four women and one man.
At a press conference on Saturday evening after Cetin's arrest, police refused to 'rule out or rule in' terrorism.
KING 5 News reported that Cetin took three legally purchased guns from his father and drove to Macy's where his ex-girlfriend once worked and started shooting before dumping the weapons and escaping on foot.
His ex-girlfriend quit several months ago, according to KING 5 News and was not at the mall at the time of the shooting.
There have been unconfirmed reports the suspect shouted a woman's name multiple times just moments before opening fire.
