So despite original media claims the suspect was “Hispanic,” yeah, not the case. This is breaking, more details to come but here’s what’s being reported now.

Via Daily Mail.

The suspected shooter who killed five people in a mall north of Seattle on Friday was arrested Saturday night.

Arcan Cetin, 20, was identified by law enforcement officials to KOMO News. Cetin was taken into custody by Island County Sheriff’s Office 30 miles southwest from Cascade Mall, in Burlington, Washington, where the shooting took place.

He will be turned over to Skagit County Sheriff’s Office, the Seattle Times reported.
Cetin has no police record or history of crime in the state of Washington, according to KOMO News.
Pictures posted to Cetin’s MySpace page show him holding what appears to be a rifle and another appears to show a revolver.

Washington State Patrol announced the capture of Cetin on their Twitter account around 10.16pm EST.

According to his Facebook, Cetin is lives in Oak Harbor, Washington, but is originally from Adana, Turkey.
As his capture was announced, two of his victims’ identities were revealed. Sarai Lara, 16, was a cancer survivor who battled the disease as a young child. She attended Mount Vernon High School and had just entered her sophomore year.

Sarai went to Macy’s looking for pants, her mother said.
As news spread through the mall of the shooting Evangelina desperately tried to get to her daughter but was blocked from entering the store.

Seven hours later it was confirmed that Sarai was among the victims.

Another victim is believed to be 52-year-old Shayla Martin. Martin, of Mount Vernon, Washington, worked as a make-up artist. Her sister Karen Van Horn told the Seattle Times: ‘We’re really having a tough time right now.’

And according to his Twitter, if this is accurate and indeed his account, he’s a Hillary supporter.

    I’m sure the media will push the lone wolf,mental problems,copycat theories
    but the marching orders have gone out & every state has at least one madman ready
    to pounce. I believe every city does as well. There is a national novena that
    started on August 15th,the feast of Our Lady’s Assumption into heaven of
    saying the rosary every day until October 7th, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. We are praying specifically before the election and are assured of
    God’s help in these trying times.

    Incidents like this will continue until the establishment left and right get serious about how dangerous it is to keep bringing more “refugees” in. Granted this individual’s parents did it right. But it appears the 1st generation doesn’t feel the loyalty to America one would expect from Naturalized citizens.
