Video of the Sept. 23 Cascade Mall shooting, where Arcan Cetin killed five random victims was released Friday by the Washington State Patrol. It shows how the shooter selected his victims, and is a key piece of evidence in the case against Cetin.
Some of the victims ran. At least one tried to confront the shooter.
Part of the graphic footage shows two of the victims, a woman and her elderly mother, holding each other’s arms as they run behind a makeup counter. A third victim is crouched in the makeup counter.
The shooting suspect runs into frame and fires on all three, then puts his Ruger 10/22 on the counter and runs away. Cetin was charged with five counts of murder and is being held on $2 million bail in Skagit County District Court. He could face the death penalty if Cetin is charged with aggravated first degree murder.
