At least four people are dead after a mass shooting at a Washington state shopping mall late Friday evening.

The shooting took place at Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington, which is about 65 miles north of Seattle.

According to authorities, no shooter is yet in custody. Multiple attackers may have acted in cooperation to carry out the attack.

A shooter “entered a Macy’s store around 7 PM local time,” according to reports.

Sgt. Mark Francis, whose tweet regarding the incident is featured below, is a public information officer with Washington State Patrol.

Francis also described the known “active shooter,” detailing a “Hispanic male wearing grey.”

The suspect was last seen walking towards Interstate-5.

Police are “enforcing evacuation orders” inside the mall, and “all roads in and out of the area are closed,” according to RT News.

Friday’s incident comes just days after the capture of a man who set off several bombs in the New York/ New Jersey area, explosions which left no casualties and authorities in a panic to stop what was feared to be an “active terror cell.”

At nearly the same time as one of the first explosions this past weekend, rocking a neighborhood in New York City, a man took to a Minnesota mall on a stabbing spree, leaving multiple seriously wounded. The aftermath of that attack saw the Islamic State terror group claim the Minnesota attacker as a “soldier if the Islamic State.”

There is not yet any word as to possible motive for Friday night’s ongoing incident in Washington.
