    Arcan Cetin Found Deceased Apparent Suicide - Oak Harbor, WA

    Suspect Arrested in Washington Mall Shooting

    By Max Blau, CNN - Updated 5:57 AM ET, Sun September 25, 2016

    (CNN)The lone suspect in the fatal shooting of five people in a Washington state mall after a nearly 24-hour manhunt, authorities said early Sunday.

    Four women and one man died in the shooting Friday night at a Macy's store at the Cascade Mall in Burlington.

    The victims' identities have not been released.

    Authorities arrested Arcan Cetin, 20, Saturday night as he walked down the street near his residence in Oak Harbor, Washington.

    When officers confronted him, he did not run, he just froze and complied, said Lt. Mike Hawley of the Island County Sheriff's Office. Cetin was not armed at the time of his arrest.

    "He said nothing," Hawley said. "Just kind of zombie-like."

    While more details emerged on the suspect after his arrest Saturday night, the motive remains unknown.
    Cetin immigrated from Turkey and is a legal permanent resident of the United States, authorities said. It's unclear when he moved to the US.

    State authorities said it's too early to rule out terrorism or anything else because their investigation is in its preliminary stages. Before the suspect's arrest, an official with the FBI had told reporters there was "no evidence at this time" of a link to terrorism.

    Authorities say Cetin walked into the mall, about 65 miles north of Seattle, and opened fire with a rifle Friday night. He allegedly fled the mall afterward, sending more than 24 law enforcement agencies on a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] across the state.

    Arcan Cetin: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    12:40 pm EDT, September 24, 2016 Updated 1:02 am EDT, September 25, 2016

    The man accused of killing five people inside a Washington state shopping mall has been named as Arcan Cetin. Around 7 p.m.

    September 23, a gunman opened fire inside a Macy’s store at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington. Cetin is 20 years old. He’s a native of Turkey but is now a legal resident of the United States.

    The gunman fled the scene before police arrived and remained at large for 24 hours after the shooting.

    The fatal victims have been described as four females — [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] — and one male. Their exact ages have not been released.

    Cetin was arrested without incident nearly 24 hours after the shooting in Oak Harbor, Washington, about 30 miles from Burlington.

    Here’s what we know so far:

    1. Cetin Was ‘Zombie Like’ When He Was Arrested

    Lt. Chris Cammock of the Oak Harbor Police Department said at a press conference announcing Cetin’s arrest that the suspect was "kind of zombie-like" when he was taken into custody. He didn’t attempt to run from arresting officers. Officials declined to release a motive for the attack. Cammock added, "I’m not going to rule out anything at this point." There is no apparent connection between Cetin and the victims of the shooting.

    Washington mall shooting suspect to be arraigned Monday

    Updated 8:09 AM ET, Mon September 26, 2016

    Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated the suspect's status in police custody. He has not been formally charged.

    (CNN)The lone suspect held in the killing of five people at a Washington state mall will be arraigned Monday and authorities are working steadily to nail down a motive, a state patrol spokesman said Sunday.

    Arcan Cetin, 20, is facing five counts of first-degree murder, according to Skagit County jail records. He will appear Monday in the county's district court.

    Cetin, held in Skagit County jail on Sunday, has not been formally charged, according to Sgt. Mark Francis, a state patrol spokesman.

    Four women and one man died in the shooting Friday night at a Macy's store at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, north of Seattle. The victims' identities have not been released. Cetin was taken into Saturday night after a nearly 24-hour manhunt, authorities said.

    Five counts premeditated murder: Cascade Mall suspect charged

    Sept 26, 2016


    SEATTLE – Suspect Arcan Cetin confessed to the shooting deaths of five people at a mall in Burlington last Friday, according to newly released court documents.

    Cetin is charged with five counts of premeditated first-degree murder. He made his first court appearance Monday morning. He's being held on $2 million bail.

    Cetin’s mother confirmed to detectives it was her son seen in surveillance photos from the Cascade Mall the night of the shooting, according to court documents.

    The documents show Cetin recently had a falling out with his father. His father also told detectives that he was missing his Ruger rifle and his .22 ammunition. Police say that was the same rifle used in the shooting.

    Washington mall shooter who murdered five arraigned in front of his parents as it emerges he confessed to detectives

    Sept 26, 2016


    The suspect in the Washington state mall shooting which left five dead has appeared in court to be arraigned in front of his parents - as police say he confessed.

    Arcan Cetin told detectives who interviewed him that 'he did bring the rifle into Macy's and shot all five victims,' court records show.

    The 20-year-old was arrested 'zombie-like state' on Saturday evening following the slayings at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, on Friday evening.

    Cetin, who faces five counts of premeditated murder, appeared in Skagit County Superior Court Monday where was read the charges. Each murder charge carries a sentence of up to life in jail.

    He answered only to say he understood the charges against him. Authorities are asking that he be held on a $2 million bond.

    Cetin, an immigrant originally from Adana, Turkey, was arrested near his Oak Harbor home almost 24 hours after he allegedly opened fire in the make-up department of Macy's in Burlington's Cascade Mall, killing four women and one man.

    They have now been named as 16-year-old cancer survivor Sarai Lara, 95-year-old Beatrice Dotson and her daughter Belinda Galde, Macys makeup counter employee Shayla Martin and father-of-two Chuck Eagan who died trying to protect his daughter.

    At a press conference on Saturday evening after Cetin's arrest, police refused to 'rule out or rule in' terrorism.

    Cetin was described by a neighbor as so 'creepy, rude and obnoxious' that she kept a Taser by her front door. He also had a string of run-ins with the law in recent years, including charges he assaulted his stepfather.

    As investigators tried to piece together information on Cetin, a picture emerged of a troubled young man.

    Court records show more than a half-dozen criminal cases in Island County alone since 2013.

    Cetin allegedly took the three legally purchased guns from his father before heading to Macy's, according toKING 5 News.

    His ex-girlfriend quit several months ago and was not at the mall at the time of the shooting.

    There have been unconfirmed reports the suspect shouted a woman's name multiple times just moments before opening fire, according to FOX-Q13.

    Cetin reportedly opened fire for one minute before he laid down a rifle, a .22 Ruger, on the counter and walked away.

    Old pictures posted to Cetin's MySpace page show him holding what appears to be a rifle and another appears to show a revolver.

    snipped

    Amber Cathey, 21, lived in an apartment next to Cetin for the past three months and said she was so frightened by him that she complained to apartment management and kept a stun gun handy. Cathey said she blocked him on Snapchat after he sent her a photo of his crotch.

    'He was really creepy, rude and obnoxious,' Cathey said. She said she would try to avoid him by walking the long way around to her apartment if she saw his car in the parking lot. The two were in high school together as well, and Cathey said he acted the same way then.

    Suspect may have attempted gun purchase hours before mall shooting

    Sept 28, 2016


    The suspected Cascade Mall killer walked into an Island County gun store and tried to buy a large caliber handgun just two hours before the shootings that killed five people.

    “He seemed off from the moment he walked in,” said gun store clerk Aaron Wilson.

    Wilson says Arcan Cetin asked if the store “sells 45’s and stuff,” referring to the caliber of the weapon he wanted.

    snipped

    It’s unclear if he stole the gun from his father’s house in Oak Harbor before or after he learned he could not purchase a weapon from the dealer.

    Most telling though, Wilson says that Cetin wanted to know if there was any way he could avoid the criminal background check that’s required for gun purchases.

    Firearms purchases require a criminal background check by a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL). FFL’s – more commonly called gun dealers – typically use a computer to access to the FBI’s database called the National Instant Check System.

    Background checks can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. But the law says rifle purchases are granted up to 48 hours for a background check to be completed. Handgun background checks require a 10-day process.

    “He grew more agitated the more I told him there wasn’t a way around the background check,” Wilson said. “I already became convinced at this point that no matter what, I wasn’t willing to sell this man a gun.”

    Law enforcement sources confirmed that they were contacted by the gun shop and are investigating.

    The gun store’s owner asked KING 5 not to identify the shop.

    Store employees say they turned over to investigators a surveillance video that shows Cetin in the store. The development provides the most insight into what Cetin was doing in the hours before the shooting.

    Wilson says Cetin was not particularly agitated, until he was informed he could not buy a gun. Wilson says he was never violent.

    The store clerk says he did not realize that the mall shooter was Cetin until clear photos of the suspect were released after his arrest.

    Before Cascade Mall shootings, witness saw suspect near theater

    Sept 29, 2016


    Sept. 29--A Mount Vernon woman says she encountered accused gunman Arcan Cetin making his way into a movie theater at the Cascade Mall through an exit door about 20 minutes before he allegedly killed five people Friday in the nearby Macy's department store.

    "I was basically eye-to-eye with him ... and I was rude to him," the 50-year-old woman said Wednesday. "He was sweaty, very jittery, very nervous."

    The woman, who was with her husband, said the man claimed he was looking for a lost cellphone, but she thought at the time he was trying to sneak into the AMC Cineplex Odeon Cinemas through the exit-only door. Now she wonders if he may have been thinking about targeting patrons of the multiplex.

    Police confirmed they received the couple's tip, one of many a police task force is examining as it builds a timeline of the 20-year-old's movements before the shooting and in the roughly 24 hours it took before his arrest Saturday in Oak Harbor, said Washington State Patrol Sgt. Mark Francis.

    "There's a lot of (surveillance camera) footage, including the theater footage," said Francis, the spokesman for the Skagit Multiple Agency Response Team, or SMART, which is leading the investigation.

    The woman said she and her husband had gone to the 4 p.m. showing of "The Magnificent Seven," then had planned to go shopping at Macy's afterward. But they decided they were too tired and so headed home, said the woman, who asked not to be identified to protect their privacy.

    Instead of walking back through the mall to get to the parking lot, the couple used the glass, exit-only door on the mall's northernmost end. There she saw a young man on the other side of the glass "and I just thought, 'Uh oh, someone is waiting to sneak into the movie,' " she said.

    As her husband held open the door for her, the woman said the young man tried to push his way in -- and she sternly told him he had to wait for her and her husband to get by.

    Arcan Cetin won't be formally charged until 2017

    9:18 PM. PDT October 21, 2016

    MOUNT VERNON - Formal charges will not be filed against the accused Cascade Mall shooter until January 6, 2017. That is what the Skagit county prosecutor and Arcan Cetin's defense attorney agreed to in court on Friday.

    "Normally, it's a 30 day [deadline]," said prosecutor Rich Weyrich. "But you might imagine, the reports in this case are voluminous, involving hundreds of people, so we wanted to have the opportunity to examine all the things here."

    The 20-year-old Oak Harbor man is believed to be the person who walked into the Burlington Macy's on September 23, gunning down five people.

    Cetin's attorney, C. Wesley Richards, asked the judge to quash search warrants for the mental health records from two of his doctors, citing doctor-patient privilege among other reasons. The judge granted the stay for now.

    Accused mall gunman Arcan Cetin to face mental health evaluation

    Thursday, January 5th 2017

    MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - A Skagit County Superior Court judge has ordered a mental competency evaluation for the man accused of shooting and killing five people inside a Burlington shopping mall last year.

    Arcan Cetin, 20, trudged into court in shackles to be arraigned on newly filed aggravated murder charges. The charges, filed by Skagit County prosecutors on Wednesday, give the prosecution the ability to seek the death penalty in the case.

    Prosecutor Rich Weyrich told KOMO that even though Thursday’s hearing was supposed to be Cetin’s arraignment on the new charges he had some notice that Cetin’s defense team would be seeking a delay by requesting that their client be evaluated by Western State Hospital mental health experts.

    "He came to court today for arraignment, his lawyers informed us they’d be asking for a competency evaluation and the court granted that competency evaluation," Weyrich said after the hearing.

    Judge Dave Needy agreed to the mental competency evaluation requested by defense attorney C. Wesley Richards.

    "My client’s self-report, review of mental health records, interview of family members and interview of Mr. Cetin’s psychiatrist I do have reasons to doubt his competency," Richards said in court.

    Needy set Cetin’s next hearing for Jan. 19. If mental health experts deem him competent by then he’ll be arraigned as early as that hearing, Weyrich said.

    Arcan Cetin, man accused of killing 5 in Cascade Mall shooting, dies in jail

    Originally published April 17, 2017 at 9:53 am Updated April 17, 2017 at 7:03 pm

    Arcan Cetin was accused of opening fire with a Ruger .22-caliber rifle on Sept. 23, 2016, killing five people. He was found unresponsive in his Snohomish County Jail cell on Sunday night, dead from an apparent suicide.

    More than a month ago, Arcan Cetin — the man accused of killing five people at the Cascade Mall in September — was moved from the Skagit County Jail to the lockup in Snohomish County at the request of his public defenders, according to a Skagit County spokeswoman.

    The reason: Cetin had made legally compromising comments about his criminal case to fellow inmates, setting up the potential for a huge conflict of interest for his defense attorneys, said Bronlea Mishler, the county’s communications coordinator.

    Many of those other inmates are also represented by the Skagit County Public Defender’s Office and potentially could have been called as state witnesses during Cetin’s trial on five counts of aggravated first-degree murder, Mishler said.

    The transfer occurred on March 10.

    Just before 7 p.m. Sunday, Cetin was found dead in his jail cell from an apparent suicide, according to Skagit County prosecutors.

    The 20-year-old, who has not been officially identified by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office, is believed to have hanged himself, according to prosecutors.

    A phone call to defense attorney Wes Richards was not returned Monday.
