FBI: ‘No Indication’ That Washington State Mall Shooting Was ‘Terrorist Act’


The FBI said Saturday morning that there is “no evidence” that a mass shooting that killed five at a mall north of Seattle on Friday has any connection to terrorism.

“We have no indication this was a terrorism act,” an assistant special agent in the FBI’s Seattle office said at a Saturday press conference, as reported by ABC News. “There is no evidence to support that.”

Authorities are still looking for the gunman who killed five in a mass shooting at a mall north of Seattle. Police described the shooter as a Hispanic man wearing black and armed with a rifle, according to the Associated Press.
