Arcan Cetin

The suspect in the deadly Washington state mall shooting has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

Arcan Cetin, 20, made a brief appearance at Skagit County District Court on Monday over the shootings at the Cascade Mall in Burlington on Friday.

He was advised of the charges he faces by Judge David Svaren, who set the next hearing in the case for October 26, with bail set at $2 million US dollars.

Cetin's public defender, Keith Tyne, made no statements.

The suspect's stepfather, David Marshall, told reporters after the hearing that Cetin "has had mental health issues that we have been working on him with".

Cetin is accused of opening fire in a Macy's department store cosmetics department on Friday and was arrested after a near 24-hour manhunt.

Five people - three women, a teenage girl and one man - were killed in the incident.
