Turkish-born Arcan Cetin, a 20-year-old legal US resident, was advised of the charges against him during a brief hearing in Skagit County District Court and ordered held on $2 million bail. According to charging documents, Cetin admitted to police investigators that he brought a Ruger .22 caliber rifle into the Macy’s department store at Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles (105 km) north of Seattle, on Friday evening and fatally shot five people.–Agencies
