Burlington "Hispanic" terrorist suspect turns out to be Turkish

A 20 year old Turkish man has been arrested for the fatal shooting of 5 people in a shopping mall in Burlington, Washington this weekend.

Police described the suspect as being of Hispanic appearance following the shooting but that proved not to be the case. Arcan Cetin can be seen entering the mall unarmed on CCTV footage but a few minutes later is seen with what appears to be a hunting rifle.

Cetin has a history of domestic violence and had been ordered by the courts to stay away from drink and drugs. He was attending court-mandated mental health counselling sessions.

The FBI have said that they are not ruling out terrorism.
