A 20-year-old man named Arcan Cetin was arrested by police at 7 p.m. Pacific time Saturday evening on suspicion of the mass shooting at a Macy's in a Washington State mall that took five lives Friday night. Cetin was unarmed and was described as quiet, even "zombie-like," at the time of his arrest.
Though originally described by police as Hispanic based on a blurry surveillance image, Cetin is a permanent resident of the United States from Turkey. At present, the Seattle branch of the FBI says there is no evidence this was an act of terrorism or that there were any other shooters.
Cetin was prohibited from owning a firearm after charges of domestic violence and drunk driving, but he was in compliance with court-ordered mental health counseling. His former girlfriend once worked at the department store where he attacked, but she no longer works there or lives in the area.
