Police were searching Saturday for a gunman dressed in black who fled on foot after opening fire in the makeup department at a Macy’s store in Burlington, Wash., killing five people.
Skagit County authorities in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, said 11 search teams and two K-9 units had cleared the 434,000 square foot Cascade Mall, going shop by shop, but warned that the situation in the area remained volatile.
“We are still actively looking for the shooter,” Washington State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Francis said at a news conference. “Stay indoors, stay secure.”The shooter was described as a Hispanic man wearing black and armed with a “hunting-type” rifle. The motive behind the attack remains unclear.
Francis said authorities believe there was one shooter and released a blurry photo of the dark-haired suspect dressed in a black T-shirt.
