(FOX NEWS) – A suspected gunman believed to have killed five people at a Washington state mall was arrested Saturday, according to authorities.
At a news conference, officials said they had not ruled out any possible motives for why 20-year-old Arcan Cetin allegedly shot four women and one man at the Cascade Mall in Burlington Friday evening.
A gunman shot four woman and one man at the mall’s Macy’s store before fleeing the scene.
Police were searching for a gunman who killed four women and a man at a Washington state mall Friday before fleeing the area.
Washington State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Francis said police were searching for a Hispanic man wearing black and armed with a rifle who was last seen walking toward Interstate 5 near the Cascade Mall in Burlington.
“Stay indoors, stay secure,” Francis said at a news conference.
The male victim was airlifted to a Seattle hospital with critical injuries. Washington State Patrol Trooper Heather Axtman told “Fox & Friends” Saturday morning that the man had died.
Authorities initially said four people were killed, then said three were dead, before revising the number again late Friday. Francis said the number fluctuated as authorities searched the 434,000-square-foot mall.
The sergeant said the victims were shot in the makeup department of the mall’s Macy’s store at approximately 7 p.m. local time.
