Washington State Patrol released a photo of suspected gunman in Cascade Mall shooting.

BURLINGTON, WA – A gunman has been captured Saturday night, believed to be responsible for five deaths at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington Friday night, Sept. 23

As a result of the shooting, four female victims were confirmed deceased Friday night; a male victim who was seriously injured and transported to Harborview Medical Center passed away overnight, bringing the total number of victims to five.  Reports now indicate a 20-year-old male suspect, Arcan Cetin, has been apprehended.  He may have been born in Turkey, according to news reports.

A SMART team is currently reconstructing the entire scene, conducting forensic scanning and collecting evidence. Detectives are pursing tips and leads from the public.

The Skagit County coroner has not yet determined the manner and cause of death for the victims. The Coroner’s office will release details about the identity of the victims following an autopsy and notification of immediate family.

According to the Washington State Police, at approximately 6:58 PM Friday, September 23, Skagit 911 received a call from the Macy’s Department Store at Cascade Mall reporting an active shooter. The suspect was described as wearing black clothing and carrying a rifle. Only one shooter was reported. Local and regional law enforcement from more than 26 agencies immediately responded to the mall to secure the scene and evacuate workers and visitors. At the height of the incident, approximately 200 law enforcement officers were on scene.

According to surveillance video taken from the mall, the shooter appeared to enter the mall without a weapon; ten minutes later, he reappears on surveillance video at Macy’s with a rifle in his hand.

At 4:30 AM Saturday, September 24, teams of officers cleared the 434,000-square-foot mall. The mall and surrounding parking lots remained closed for the investigation.

    I grew up in the 60’s, and still, the best r&r music ever made. Anyway, I don’t remember any violence in the music made then. It wasn’t until the C-rap music came out that the violence began. And now that music has come to life.

        How do you know that he isn’t right? Just because with your head up your ass life is full of roses doesn’t mean other people can’t see the truth.

      And Sandy Hook was a hoax too, performed by child actors. You are a charter member of the “Beam me up Scotty” club.

    This crap didn’t happen in the 70’s and 80’s. What changed? Could it be that Tipper Gore and the PRMC were correct about violence in music and entertainment?

      I agree. The entertainment industry is to blame for a great deal of the violence in our culture today. The liberals who hate guns are the biggest hypocrites in our country. Monkey see. Monkey do.

        The one thing these nutjobs have in common is an obsession with prior mass killings. What has really changed since the 70ies and the 80ies is media and its obsessive covering of these tragedies. I firmly believe that is the main reason they are happening at an accelerating pace.
