A gunman remains at large after killing four women and a man in a shooting at a mall in Washington state late Friday, police said.
Dozens of officers were involved in a hunt for the suspect, identified by cops as a Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s and armed with a long hunting rifle. Police believe he was working alone.
He opened fire at a Macy's store at Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, Washington State Sgt. Mark Francis said.
A handout picture provided by the Skagit County Department of Emergency Management shows the suspect in the fatal shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington, Friday.
Four women were found dead at the store. A man suffered critical injuries but later passed away.
"I'd be extremely diligent and careful if you come in contact with the suspect," Francis warned in a late night news conference. "Stay indoors, stay secure."
He added: "You've got dozens and dozens of detectives behind me going over absolutely every tip both on social media and phone calls trying to determine where this suspect is."
Reports about a shooting started coming in around 7 p.m. local time, Washington State Trooper spokeswoman Heather Axtman said earlier.
There was no immediate motive, but no indication that the event was terror-related, Axtman said.
