BURLINGTON, WASH. Police arrested a suspect in the fatal shootings of five people at the Cascade Mall 24 hours earlier, authorities announced Saturday night.
The suspect has been identified as 20-year-old Arcan Cetin, who is originally from Turkey but is a legal permanent U.S. resident. Authorities have released no information as to a possible motive in the attack.
At a press conference Saturday night, the arresting officer Lt. Mike Hawley of the Island County Sheriff’s Office described Cetin as being “like a zombie” when he was taken into custody. He was unarmed, carrying a leather bag with a laptop inside at the time of his arrest, Hawley said.
