SEATTLE - Newly-released police records show the man accused of fatally shooting five people in a Washington state mall has declined to provide a motive to detectives.
The Seattle Times reports that details from interviews with police shortly after Arcan Cetin was arrested Sept. 24 were disclosed in records released Friday.
The Sept. 23 shooting left a teenage girl, three women and one man dead.
