Washington mall shooting suspect confesses to slayings, is charged with murder

The young man accused of killing five people in a Washington state shopping mall before leading authorities on a nearly 24-hour manhunt has confessed to the slayings and was charged with five counts of first-degree murder, according to court documents released Monday. 

The documents filed in Skagit County court say Arcan Cetin told detectives who interviewed him that “he did bring the rifle into Macy's and shot all 5 victims.” 

The 20-year-old was arrested Saturday evening following the slayings the night before at the Cascade Mall in Burlington.
