A manhunt was on in the US state of Washington after a gunman opened fire in a shopping mall north of Seattle, killing five people.
The victims were shot in the makeup department at Macy’s at Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington, before 7 p.m. local time, police said.
Sergeant Mark Francis said authorities were searching for a “Hispanic male wearing grey” who was last seen walking towards a highway from the mall.
“We are still actively looking for the shooter. Stay indoors, stay secure,” Francis said at a news conference.
