IS HE OR ISN’T HE? Early reports describe him as a Hispanic man, but he might be a Muslim (photo below). Shhhh…don’t tell anyone but “Islamic Terrorism” has not been ruled out.
UPDATE: New (not so hispanic-looking) photos of killer released:
UPDATE 2: Still don’t have a clue about who or where he is:
More than 24 hours later and they still have nothing.
Seattle Times Five people were shot —
four five fatally — Friday night in the Cascade Mall in Burlington, and officers fanned out searching for the shooter, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The four dead are all female, State Patrol Sgt. Mark Francis said. One man in critical condition was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. It isn’t clear if there were any other victims.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s or 30s with a close-shaved haircut. He used a long hunting-type gun, Francis said. Police released a security-footage photo of him shortly after 9 p.m.
Francis said the suspected shooter was last seen walking west toward Interstate 5 from the mall around 7 p.m. A search at the mall and surrounding area included bomb-sniffing dogs and a helicopter. Just before 11 p.m., Francis said two-thirds of the mall had been cleared, but there were locked doors and rooms that needed to be opened.
The four people were fatally shot in the Macy’s store on the west side of the mall, the State Patrol said.
