Washington Mall Shooting Suspect Is A 20-Year Old Man Who Has Now Been Arrested

The suspect in the Washington state mall shooting has been apprehended. He was arrested yesterday evening by the police 30 miles from the scene of the crime in a 'zombie-like state'.

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.
