News Sources for Burlington Shootings
Sat, Sep 24, 2016, 9:44 am
The shootings last night at the Cascade Mall in Burlington have resulted in 5 persons dead, 4 of them women. The shooter is, as of mid morning this Saturday, still on the loose and still unidentified - at least publically. A very good surveliance camera photos of him do exist and we post them here. It is very reasonable to consider he may be hiding in Whatcom County as we are only 12 miles from the Cascade Mall. And Bellingham is just 20 miles up I-5.
It was smart of the police to release the photo so quickly. We of the public can and want to assist in having this guy found and arrested. A simply 911 phone call and the authorities will be quiclkly checking out leads. One assumes.
The two online news outfits to be giving the best coverage this morning are the Skagit Valley Herald with their GoSkagit website. They are located in Mount Vernon, across the river from Burlington, and do a great job covering all Skagit Valley news year round. The Seattle Times has shown great reporting even from last evening. The Times is still a real newspaper, reporting local news throughout Puget Sound, including Bellingham.
On Twitter, there are several tweets for the tag #CascadeMallShooting with the Skagit Count Department of Emergency Management - @SkagitDEM - being the account I'm following.
