Suspect Charged in Washington Mall Shooting

The lone suspect in the fatal shooting of five people in a Washington state mall has been charged with five counts of first degree murder, according to Skagit County jail records.

Arcan Cetin, 20, was taken into custody Saturday night after a nearly 24-hour manhunt, authorities said.

Four women and one man died in the shooting Friday night at a Macy’s store at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, just north of Seattle.

The victims’ identities have not been released.
Authorities arrested Cetin as he walked down the street near his home in Oak Harbor, Washington.
When officers confronted him, he did not run, said Lt. Mike Hawley of the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Instead, he froze and complied, Hawley said. Cetin was not armed at the time of his arrest.
“He said nothing,” Hawley said. “Just kind of zombie-like.”
Cetin is scheduled to make a court appearance Monday.
