The Latest: Mall shooting victim was probation officer
BURLINGTON, Wash. – The Latest on a deadly mall shooting in Washington state (all times local):
Authorities say one of the five victims in the deadly Washington state mall shooting was a probation officer.
The Snohomish County District Court in a statement identified Belinda Galde as an employee with the court since 1989.
The statement says the 64-year-old Galde "was an amazingly kind and caring individual" who helped thousands of probationers find a better way to live.
Police arrested 20-year-old Arcan Cetin on Saturday following Friday's shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, north of Seattle, that left five people dead.
The 20-year-old suspect in the deadly Washington state mall shooting said nothing and appeared "zombie-like" when he was arrested by authorities nearly 24 hours into an intense manhunt, authorities said.
Island County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Hawley said he spotted Arcan Cetin from a patrol car Saturday evening in Oak Harbor, Washington, and immediately recognized him as the suspect who killed five people at the Cascade Mall in nearby Burlington.
Hawley said at a news conference they had received information that Cetin, of Oak Harbor, was in the area. Cetin, who immigrated to the U.S. from Turkey, is a legal permanent resident who has been living in Oak Harbor, authorities said. He had been arrested once before in the county for assault, Hawley said.
