However, a moviegoer found the phone and turned it into a theater kiosk, where Cetin subsequently retrieved it. Shortly before 7:00 p.m. PDT on September 23, 2016, Arcan Cetin walked into the Macy's store at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington, with a stolen rifle and opened fire, killing four women and one man. The male victim died the next day at a Seattle hospital.

Video footage of the shooting, released on October 28, showed the gunman randomly targeting his victims. He first killed a woman near some clothing racks, then approached a cosmetics counter, where he killed one man and three women. All of the victims were shot at close range, and other people present in the store were able to escape unharmed because of their distance from the shooter. Afterwards, the gunman abandoned his weapon and fled the scene in a blue four-door vehicle.

He was arrested the following day in Oak Harbor, Washington, his hometown On September 26, he confessed to committing the shooting. On April 16, 2017, Cetin committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell.
