Cascade Mall Shooter: Turkish Immigrant Arcan Cetin

Cascade, Washington Mall shooter taken into custody just now. His name is Arcan Cetin, a Turkish immigrant who had been arrested a year ago on a simple assault.

He killed five people at the mall.  Doesn’t appear he knew his victims.

He’s a Hillary Clinton voter. Big shock.

He’s not Amish. Another big shock.

Lt. Michael Hawley was the arresting officer. Cetin wasn’t armed at the time. He was carrying a laptop.

Police have the rifle he used.

No answer on motive.

Gee, wonder what it might be?

Glenn Reynolds says this:

ALMOST CERTAINLY MENTAL ISSUES: Or at least an history of persistent hooliganism. Of course, that doesn’t preclude terrorist involvement. I love the way our media just says “no terrorism” over and over like an incantation. However, for now the 24h rule is in effect. Suspect in custody after Burlington, Wash. mall shooting that left 5 dead.

Cannot possibly be the “T” word.

The crime that cannot be named.


UPDATED: Looks like he yelled out a woman’s name before he shot the people. (Domestic violence?)
