KING 5 News reported that Cetin took three legally purchased guns from his father and drove to Macy's where his ex-girlfriend once worked and started shooting before dumping the weapons and escaping on foot.

His ex-girlfriend quit several months ago, according to KING 5 News and was not at the mall at the time of the shooting.

There have been unconfirmed reports the suspect shouted a woman's name multiple times just moments before opening fire, according to FOX-Q13.

The arrest comes as two of victims of the attack were identified as Sarai Lara, 16, and Shayla Martin, 52.

According to his Facebook, Cetin lives in Oak Harbor, Washington, but is originally from Adana, Turkey. 

He is not Hispanic, as police originally reported. 

A former classmate of Cetin, Uhlaine Finnigan, 19, of Washington, spoke exclusively to DailyMail.com about her memories of the suspect. 

'I didn't think he'd take it as far as mass murder but I knew he was trouble,' Finnigan said. 

Finnigan said she was headed to Cascade Mall that night, but at the last minute decided not to go. 

'We did just get back from the Bellingham Mall, so that could be some of our influence. 

'Knowing my friends and I we would of been at Macy's, too,' she said. 

The 19-year-old described Cetin as a loner who appeared troubled to her.  

During a press conference on Saturday night, officials confirmed that along with having Cetin in custody, they also had his rifle. 

Lieutenant Mike Hawley of the Island County Sheriff's office said after tips from the community, he heard a report over the scanner that the suspect had been spotted.

He drove to the Oak Harbor area, spotted Cetin and put on his lights. He called Cetin silent, almost 'zombie-like' and said the suspect completely complied with orders and was taken into custody without issue. 

Lieutenant Chris Cammock of the Mount Vernon Police Department said one of the things that helped connect Cetin to the shooting was his vehicle, which was seen on surveillance footage. 

He did not explain in detail how the vehicle led them to Cetin, but said after receiving tips the car was able to link the suspect to the shooting.

Officials also said they are not willing to rule in or out terrorism because the investigation is too new. 

As his capture was announced, two of his victims' identities were revealed. 

Sarai Lara, 16, was a cancer survivor who battled the disease as a young child. 

She attended Mount Vernon High School and had just entered her sophomore year. 

He mother, Evangelina, said she was shopping with Sarai and other daughter when they split up to go into different stores, according to the Seattle Times.

Sarai went to Macy's looking for pants, her mother said. 

As news spread through the mall of the shooting Evangelina desperately tried to get to her daughter but was blocked from entering the store.   

Seven hours later it was confirmed that Sarai was among the victims. 

Another victim is believed to be 52-year-old Shayla Martin.

Martin, of Mount Vernon, Washington, worked as a make-up artist. Her sister Karen Van Horn told the Seattle Times: 'We’re really having a tough time right now.'

Van Horn said police hadn't confirmed her sister was among the dead but that a witness told them she had been killed during the shooting. 

'She was so sweet. She was just very independent. She wanted to make her own way. She didn’t want to rely on anyone else,' Van Horn told the Seattle Times.  

Along with Sarai Lara and Shayla Martin, two more women and one man are confirmed dead after the shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, the Washington State Patrol said.

Cetin allegedly walked into Macy's and opened fire in the the makeup department of the store about 7pm local time. 

During a press conference on Saturday morning, authorities said the man believed to be Cetin was seen entering the mall without a gun about 10 minutes before he started shooting in the Macy's.

At the press conference, mayor Steve Sexton described the suspect as a 'son of a b***h'. 

'Our community comes together in times of tragedy,' Sexton said.

'Our support goes with them (law enforcement), to help them... bring the son of a b***h who did this to our community to justice.'

 Gov. Jay Inslee said tragedy has struck in Washington state in Burlington. 

'Trudi and I send our condolences to the families of the victims and prayers for anyone injured,' Inslee said.

'We urge residents to heed all safety and detour warnings. 

'Stay close to your friends and loved ones as we await more information and, hopefully, news of the suspect's capture.'

Streets surrounding the mall and access roads to entrances to the facility had been closed off by police. 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives said Friday night it was deploying to Burlington, Washington. 

The FBI also said it is assisting local authorities in the investigation into the deadly mall shooting.  

An employee at a restaurant near the deadly mall shooting said they 'immediately locked the doors' when they heard of the mayhem unfolding on Friday night.

Stephanie Bose, an assistant general manager at Johnny Carino's Italian restaurant near Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington, told The Associated Press her restaurant is just outside the Macy's. 

A boyfriend of one of Bose's employees came into the restaurant after trying to go to the mall. 

She said he saw people screaming and police blocking the door with assault rifles.

'He was trying to go to the mall and people were screaming,' she said. 'It was frantic.'

She said he could see police at the doors with assault rifles and said they were no longer guarding the doors as of 9.30pm local time.   

The Cascade Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Burlington, Washington that opened in 1990, according to the mall's website. 

It features J.C. Penney, TJ Maxx, and Macy's stores, among other stores, restaurants and a movie theater. 

The shooting comes less than a week after a man stabbed nine people at a mall in central Minnesota before being shot dead.

Police searched Saturday for a gunman who authorities said fatally shot five people in a mall north of Seattle before fleeing toward an interstate highway on foot.

People fled, customers hid in dressing rooms and employees locked the doors of nearby stores after gunshots rang out just after 7 p.m. Friday at the Cascade Mall. A helicopter, search teams and K-9 units scoured the area for a rifle-carrying man.

"We are still actively looking for the shooter," Washington State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Francis said at a Friday night news conference. "Stay indoors, stay secure."

Authorities said four females, whose ages were not given, died after the gunman opened fire in the makeup department of a Macy's store. An adult male who was wounded in the shooting died early Saturday, officials said. His location in the mall was unclear.

 Police said they were looking for a man wearing black and armed with a "hunting-type" rifle and last seen walking toward Interstate 5. The description, including that he appeared to be Hispanic, was based on statements from witnesses, said Given Kutz, a spokesman for the Skagit County Emergency Operations Center.

The unidentified gunman can be seen on surveillance footage armed with what appears to be a rifle in the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Wash., late Friday.

Authorities said the motive was unknown for the shooting about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Seattle.

The FBI was assisting local authorities as dozens of police officers searched for the suspect. The FBI's Seattle office said on Twitter that it "has no information to suggest additional attacks planned" in Washington state but did not elaborate.

Though the four female victims were in the makeup area, it is unclear where the male victim was when he was shot.

Tari Caswell told the Skagit Valley Herald that she was in the Macy's women's dressing room when she heard "what sounded like four balloons popping."

"Then I heard seven or eight more, and I just stayed quiet in the dressing room because it just didn't feel right. And it got very quiet. And then I heard a lady yelling for help, and a man came and got me and another lady, and we ran out of the store," Caswell told the newspaper.

Stephanie Bose, an assistant general manager at Johnny Carino's Italian restaurant near the Macy's store at the mall, said she immediately locked the doors to the restaurant after hearing about the shooting from an employee's boyfriend.

"He was trying to go to the mall and people were screaming," she told The Associated Press. "It was frantic."

She said he could see police at the doors with assault rifles and said they were no longer guarding the doors as of 9:30 p.m.

Francis said at about 8:30 p.m. that the mall had been evacuated and emergency medical personnel were cleared to enter. Francis said authorities were still doing a "final clear" of the 434,000-square-foot (40,000-square-meter) mall late Friday night. He said 11 search teams and two K9 units were involved.

The parking lot was closed and emergency management officials told people they would be able to retrieve vehicles Saturday, though the mall said it would be closed for the day.

Gov. Jay Inslee said tragedy had struck the state.

"We urge residents to heed all safety and detour warnings. Stay close to your friends and loved ones as we await more information and, hopefully, news of the suspect's capture," Inslee said in a statement.

The Cascade Mall is an enclosed shopping mall that opened in 1990, according to the mall's website. It features J.C. Penney, TJ Maxx, and Macy's stores, among other stores, restaurants and a movie theater.

On Sept. 17 a man stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota mall before being shot and killed by an off-duty police officer. Authorities say Dahir Ahmed Adan, 20, stabbed the people at the Crossroads Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
