Police Reports Washington Mall Shooting Suspect Provides No Motives
SEATTLE (AP) — Newly-released police records show the man accused of fatally shooting five people in a Washington state mall has declined to provide a motive to detectives.
The Seattle Times reports that details from interviews with police shortly after Arcan Cetin was arrested Sept. 24 were disclosed in records released Friday.
The Sept. 23 shooting left a teenage girl, three women and one man dead.
Records show Cetin showed little emotion and demurred when asked repeatedly by investigators to give a reason for the killings.
Police say Cetin confirmed that he fled the Burlington mall after the shooting, drove to Seattle and spent the night in a parking lot.
Cetin of Oak Harbor is being held on suspicion of five counts of first-degree, premeditated murder.
Bail was set at $2 million. Prosecutors have until Jan. 6, 2017 to file formal charges.
