A suspect in the Cascade Mall shooting was taken into custody Saturday night. He has been identified as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor.
The Island County Sheriff’s Office apprehended the suspect in Oak Harbor at around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
Island County Sheriff Mike Hawley said he was notified by investigators of the Cascade Mall shooting that Cetin was a person of interest. He was putting together photos and information for his deputies when he got word that Cetin’s car was spotted about a half a mile from his office. He, along with another deputy drove that direction. Hawley then spotted Cetin walking on the side of the road.
“I instantly recognized that was the person I just viewed on my computer,” Hawley said. “I did a u-turn, hit my lights, pulled my gun.”
Hawley then took Cetin into custody. Cetin didn’t run or resist.

“He said nothing,” Hawley said. “He was kind of zombie-like. He did not have a weapon with him. He had a leather satchel with a computer in it.”
Oak Harbor authorities were notified about Cetin after investigators at the Cascade Mall had time to review video from multiple security cameras. Eventually, they were able to track the suspect on the video to a car at the mall. That car led them to Cetin, who was known to be living in Oak Harbor.
According to KIRO 7 reporter Amy Clancy, Cetin was known in his Oak Harbor neighborhood.
“Everybody we’ve talked with in this neighborhood is relieved. They were scared of this guy,” Clancy told KIRO 7.
“(Oak Harbor) is a small town,” Clancy said. “That is the nearest mall to Oak Harbor. That is where a lot of these people spend their time shopping.”
What we know about Arcan Cetin
Very little is known about the Cetin. His social media states that he moved to the United States from Adana, Turkey when he was young. Authorities said that he immigrated from Turkey and was a legal permanent resident of the United States.
He graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 2015.
In 2015, Cetin was involved in a 4th degree assault in Oak Harbor. As a result, the court ordered him to go under a mental health evaluation which was completed in March 2016, according to KIRO 7. He was ordered not to use drugs or alcohol during this time. On Aug. 25, 2016, he was found in compliance with all court orders, including weekly mental health counseling.
