Washington state mall shooting: FBI ‘not ruling out terrorism’ as Turkish man arrested over five killed in Macy’s

A 20-year-old Turkish man is expected to appear in court on Monday on charges of killing five people at a Macy’s department store in Washington state, as the FBI said they were not ruling out an act of terrorism.

Arcan Cetin from Oak Harbor, Washington, offered no resistance when he was arrested on Saturday night, saying nothing and appearing to be in a “zombie-like” state, police said.

On Friday night he had entered a branch of Macy’s at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, just over 65 miles north of Seattle, and opened fire at the make-up counter. He killed four women, aged 16 to 95, instantly. A fifth victim, a man who was airlifted away from the scene, died later.

Cetin had a violent past, had been arrested for drunk driving and was recommended by a judge not to be allowed to own a firearm.

Skagit County court records show three domestic-violence assault charges against Cetin, with the victim identified as his stepfather.

    Oh for crying out loud he is a Muslim, his thumbnail account already put up showing his love of Allah. This is Kerry’s telling the news shut up and the people won’t know. This will continue until the American people stop it.

    I guarantee you if these attacks continue, three now in 2 weeks or less the American people are going to do some damage.

    Hillary, if elected, will keep the flood gates open for many thousands more illegal aliens and muslim RAPEfugees.

    And this morning a lawyer in Houston, Texas went berserk and started shooting people at random before he was killed by police. They are still trying to figure out what set him off on a killing spree. Because he was white, I’ll bet you won’t see a bunch of protestors on the streets of Houston.

    Probably not terrorism, or if it was he was no doubt a lone wolf, after all there’s nothing connecting any of these…well…except they are ethnically similar, but nothing else…well, except their age range, but nothing else…well, except they are all MUSLIM, but other than those minor factors absolutely nothing…well, almost nothing..well very little…well okay, they rarely have the same last name.

    At what point do a collection of “lone wolves” become a pack?

    They can’t rule out terrorism in this case because the truth is hard to dismiss unless you’re a liberal media frog..
    How embarrassing is it for these people to even say terrorism..Sooner or later these liberal morons will have to admit we are at war with islam and they want to kill us..

    It makes Obama sick to hear a fellow cult member has committed another mass shooting in America, that makes 5 in a row now, and now you see why all of Europe has warned us about these so called made up refugees headed this way! When those bed bug infested gutter rats get here, it’ll be an everyday thing! But he’s following the plan of Soros, flood the world with this cancer!

    Five non Muslims dead in Macy’s. One Muslim arrested. It will cost the State approx. one million to put him to trial and house and feed him for the rest of his life. Sounds to me like the Muslims won this round.


    Just can’t get your heads wrapped around that word terrorism or terrorist? Why? You have a muslim walk into a public area and kill women and children. THAT’S A TERRORIST ACT!

    • snowyriver

      If and when I meet a Muslim on the street tomorrow, I can claim self defense if I kill him or her.. Knowing full well that he (she) read the Qu’ran the night before and dreamed, wished and planned to enslave or kill all infidels.

      No, just a muslim implementing islam.
