Court orders? Priors? Political affiliations? Is he really ‘Hispanic’? We’ve learned a lot since his arrest.
We’ve got the basic facts of the arrest and priors.
We’ve also got some … interesting … personal connections in his social media.
Authorities arrested Arcan Cetin Saturday night in connection with the shooting at a mall in Burlington, Wash., that left five people dead.
The suspect in custody has been identified as Arcan Cetin, 20 years old. As part of a court case, Cetin was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation in August 2015. That was completed by March of this year.
There were also questions in the court file about cannabis use. But a judge said that was not a mental health issue. In May, a judge approved deferred prosecution in that assault case — meaning Cetin was not convicted — and he was ordered not to have alcohol or drugs.
As of Aug. 25, 2016, Cetin was in compliance with weekly sessions for mental health counseling, according to court records. He complied with the alcohol assessment, according to those records, and he had a deferred prosecution review for the case scheduled for 2018.

In October 2014, Cetin was added as a defendant in a domestic violence-related case – however, he was ultimately not convicted. At the time a judge was told Cetin was just over 18 and has no place to go. Also that month, Cetin was told not to possess firearms. The court was told it was not clear were Cetin would be staying.
A formal no-contact order was entered for each parent, according to court records.
Heavy dug deep into his social media history, and came up with these gems:
— a screen grab showing he was born in Adana, Turkey
— support for Hillary Clinton
— use of words like Allah and Jannah (Islam’s ‘paradise’)
— photo of the Supreme Leader in Iran
— photo of ISIS leader:
The above photo is of the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The comment under it says, “My main dude, Abu bakr al big daddy. #al qaeda.”
— And this:
Another friend wrote on Cetin’s Facebook page in 2012, “You remind me of Wrath, cuz you know a lot about weapons and stuff, and I can imagine you taking out a lot of soldiers by yourself. :o”
Another friend mentioned black ops conversations in math class: “Truth is…You are hilarious! I miss having math class with you and we would talk about black ops! :)”
Most of Cetin’s public posts on Facebook and Twitter, though, don’t appear to be political in nature outside the above, although friends wrote that he had a strange affection for Russia.
