The Latest: Mall gunman at large, terrorism not suspectedSubmitted: 09/24/2016
BURLINGTON, WASHINGTON - The Latest on a fatal shooting at a mall in Washington state:

8:36 a.m.

A gunman who fatally shot five people at a Washington state mall remained at large as authorities said the motive for the slaying was unknown but there was no indication the shootings were a terrorist act.

Four females and one male were slain at Cascade Mall on Friday evening in Burlington, Washington.

At a news conference Saturday morning, Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said the female victims' ages ranged from teens to seniors. There was no information on the age of the male victim. No identifications have been released. Authorities did not know the name of the suspect - described as a young Hispanic male - and appealed to the community for help.

Michael Knutson, assistant special agent in charge of the Seattle FBI, said at the news conference there was no evidence to point to terrorism.



4:07 a.m.

Authorities say a fifth person has died following a shooting at a shopping mall north of Seattle.

A spokesman for the Skagit County Emergency Operations Center says the unidentified male victim died early Saturday at a Seattle hospital. Four female victims died earlier following the Friday night shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington.

Authorities continue to search for the shooter.

A Washington State Patrol spokesman says police were seeking a Hispanic man wearing black and armed with a "hunting-type" rifle last seen walking toward Interstate 5.

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